Process of progress

Here are some of the things I've worked on so far this year. Pink clutch from Yarnplay book I got from hubby for Christmas. I still need to put in a liner and sew on the buttons, but you get the idea.
The beginnings of Jaywalker socks in Yarntini's Gimlet, go ahead chuckle a little and then start placing your bets, you must know I have a little case of Second Sock Syndrome. But the pattern interest me enough that I may actually finish the second one! I'm not making any promises.
Next is SNB's Kittyville Hat, I 'm almost done but I can't get my i-cord tight enough. Any suggestions? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?.
I'm also working on some cabled gloves, some mittens for S, and I'm going to be purchashing some Malabrigo for a kids hoodie pattern I just purchased by Wendy from Knit and Tonic. I haven't even purchased the yarn and S wants to know when it will be done!

Seeing Red

1.Ruffle bag for a swap pal. 2. My fave "One Night Stand " self striping hat, named so because it takes only one night to complete. 3. A preview of my Alexander Henry tote that I'm waiting to get in the mail from Novelty Creations , on a tip from Knitdevil. 4. My missing Clara Barton cabled scarf that I've had for about 2 months and is now missing! I love this scarf and I can't find it anywhere. If you see it aimlessly roaming the cold, hard streets please tell her I miss her and want her to come home. My neck is really cold! Brrrrr.

Punk Rock Girl Strikes Again!

My Punk Rock Secret Pal struck again and this time she revealed her identity.
It is GothKnits!The package absolutely ROCKED! Not only was there stuff for me, but she also included goodies for the family. She individually wrapped everything so we got to have Christmas twice this year! The package was magnificent!!
This is what we found once we opened the packages: pink and black skully washcloths(given to husband & child), skull & bat jingle bells, bat sponge, 2 velvet coloring posters(one is done and hanging in her closet), B&W photo magazine(beautiful), classic cocktails book(yummy!), felted bag(sweet!), felted purple & black striped needle holder with handmade DPN's inside (very F@*#ing awesome!), handmade stitch markers in black, red and silver( i love them!), a miniature collie, and some dark chocolate with caramel(eaten!). I am so lucky to have such a great pal. This was such a treat and such a fun swap!Thanks again GothKnits. Love Ya!

Clean Slate

In the spirit of the New Year, I've given myself this.
