A recently finished project, Misti chunky Ribs & Ruffles Sarf.

This pattern was easy and fun to knit. I decided to begin another scarf with a different type of yarn. So far it is turning out really nice. I have to admit though, the Misti Alpaca is very luxuriously soft and scrumptious!

Boy! I've actually been busy with projects. I have a baby kimono that just needs the sleeve seamed on and the sides seamed up to be finished. I am still working on the wrap for my sis that I began last September! It is coming along so slow. I also have a sweater that I am probably half finished and that has been easy, easy to knit so far but have decided to frog because I know it is too small. This was my first gauge sensitive item that I began and I failed. No biggie the yarn was on sale and I know it can be used for something else. I am planning a wrap vest. Yes, another test in gauge. Then there is the Booga Bag I have started with some Noro and have yet to finish. There is probably a dishrag or two that haven't been finished as well. I wish I could stay home from work and knit, knit, knit. I know I've said this before, but it really is what I want to do right now.

Well, enough of my rambling...it is something I do when I don't really have much to say.

Finally I was able to knit up this charming yarn! BullFrogs & Butterflies in poppy. I had bought this in this color and a grey color and waited patiently for the perfect project to come my way. Fetching aren't they?

Tonight I bought more yarn when I went to knit group at our LYS. I bought a skein of chunky
Misti Alpaca in the orange color, a skein of Noro's Transitions and a skein of Patons Classic Wool Merino. I can't wait to knit these into something pretty! I have plans for the Misti Chunky Ribs and Ruffles Scarf. No plans for the Noro yet. I know, I know....I am hording my stash!

I have partially finished off my Noni Urban Adventure Bag. I still need to add the lining and work on the zipper a little more and I think I am going to knit some BIG flowers that I can felt and pin to the bag to decorate when the mood strikes. I couldn't find any pretty rings for the handles in handbag hardware anywhere in stores or on the net. Well, not anything other than the standard. So I looked at napkin rings. I found some very nice rings with colored glass beads. If I had planned better, I would have knitted the tab to fit around it. It fits, but it doesn't look as nice as I would like. I'll know better on the next bag.

On another note....what's with this new Blogger. I don't like the fact there is not a title box to type your title like on the old "create post" screen. I would like to see that added.

Also, It finally snowed here! We didn't get much, about an inch, maybe! But it was enough to enjoy the beautiful perspective that snow gives. I took a few pictures, but none do it justice.
