Friday Update

Yay! More rings! As the title suggests, every friday I am going to be updating here and at flickr photos of finished items for sale (click on rings set on right hand toolbar to sonly see rings.). Right now I have only finished rings. I hope to have some sock/small project bags for sale soon. After that I have plans to work out knitting buckets (large round totes), cell phone and/or bracelet charms, and possibly a mid sized project bag of some sort. I have also had success with a craft apron that I made for myself and enjoy, but there are still some bugs to work out with that pattern!

On the knitting front, I haven't finished much. I have been playing with the yarn that I won awhile back from J. Denae. It is a fabulous cushy wool from Yarn Lust. (on etsy.) I have finished a Calorimetry (Knitty). I still need to weave in the ends and add a button. I am working on a pair of Purple Monkey Dishwasher Mitts out of the same yarn and hopoe to have enough to make a scarf. I am thinking about a magic scarf or something lacey. As for baby knitting, I haven't done much. I am still slogging through my baby overalls. They seem to me that they will be very cute, but I don't know if I will ever finish them! I took a pattern from Knit Simple that was baby shortalls and added to the inseam. Unfortunately, the pattern is a bit fussy and uses multiple steps to accomplish minor details. I am also puttering around with Doddy from Knitty. The modular pentagons is appealing to the closet geek in me! I am working it in red heart in black, cranberry, and cream on size 3's. It's slow going with suck a tight guage, but I don't want any chance of stuffing coming out!
Don't forget that today is the last day for my contest!
Well, more soon! Enjoy the snow! :)
