K2 P2

This week I finished a knit cowl. Originally I wanted to list it on my store because it matches the charcoal beret, but I really like it! I haven't decided if I should keep it, or list it and make another for myself later (even though later never comes!). I snagged a quick picture of it on my phone to share with you. I only kept it on long enough to grab the shot since it is SO hot here today!! This weekend will reach up to 100... I thought this was Fall?

Izzie has a new bow!

And here's a glimpse of what's currently on my needles. It will be a cowl that can also be worn as a warm winter headband. (color is a bit distorted, it's actually a rich burgundy)

I have another 3 day weekend ahead of me and for that, I am very thankful! So much to do, so little time! Here is my current crochet/knit to-do list:
  1. Knit cabled beret, oatmeal for Carrie
  2. Finish red cowl/headband for shop
  3. Grey fingerless mitts for Nicole
  4. Pumpkin hat for Crystal's baby
  5. Halloween headband for a swap (by Oct 31)
  6. Cabled hat for a swap (by Nov 6)
  7. Orange fingerless mitts for a swap (by end of Nov)
  8. Autumn/Fall hat for a swap (by Nov 6)
  9. Slippers for a swap (by Nov 30)
phew! And that doesn't include Xmas presents! I'm thinking I should slow down on the swaps for a while. It's so hard for me to say no, they're so fun! I got a hat from Germany last month and will be getting one from Portugal this month! Also, my husband has requested that I knit him a pair of socks for xmas. I've never done that before, any tips before I get started?


  1. If you decide to make socks, learn how to by using the magic loop method. Much easier than holding all the DPN's.


  2. Your projects look great. You've got your work cut out for you. I know that Alhana is working on socks now. Maybe you can ask her for tips.

  3. You are now a knitting pro! :-D

    I prefer knitting with DPNs rather than circular but it may be because my circular needles are awful. Anyway, regardless of the method you choose, I find this tutorial great for new knitters:

    Until I saw it I didn't know you had to join the first round! lol

  4. Once you start knitting socks, you'll never stop! Everyone will want some. There are some crochet sock patterns on Ravelry. A slipper swap, that sounds great!

  5. you things are amazing.........i could never do that hahahahaha

    hope your having a great weekend

    P.S I am having another giveaway today...... :)
