Some things...

Back to my regularly scheduled knitting...
These are the Electric Slide socks using Opal Neon yarn. I'm ready to turn the heel now. I want to systematically finish up all the projects I have listed on Ravelry. This kit comes from the KnittingSurprise yahoo group. I don't think the pattern is widely available yet.
This is a basket I made on December 3. I took a personal day from school so I could take the class to make this. I will be giving it to my MIL for Christmas. I also bought another "kit" to make one for myself using different colors that will match my kitchen.
My new Molly knitting bag. Right here it has 3 sock projects in it. I love it! It's got pockets all the way around the outside as well as a roomy inside.
My old camera quit talking to my computer so...I had to buy a new one. The new one is a Canon PowerShot SX100IS. It is great. Much better megapixels and everything. I have learned how to take pictures and upload them to the computer. There is a whole lot more to it, so I am learning slowly. I will try to post a picture of it next time.
Another basket I made. This is a Christmas tree basket. I still needed to hot glue the stars above the trees. It's done now, but I haven't taken another picture yet.

Guess that's all for now.


Isn't she adorable? This is the oldest step-daughter's little girl. I stopped by the babysitters yesterday when school dismissed early to drop off her Christmas gift. It's pretty much the only way I get to see her. Her parents don't come to any family gatherings so we have to take the moments when we get them.

All of these fingerless mitts are finished and mostly given away at the past Sunday's Christmas gathering. They were a big hit. I was doubtful about how well they would be received, but everyone seemed happy to dig through and choose a color they liked.

Reading level

cash advance

So... I was just reading another blog, I know where you can find it! and this was on her latest post, so I decided to try it too! I figured I would be elementary or junior high level. Surprised myself!

Why don't you try it too?

spininmamma4 asked about the dishcloth from the Just a couple of things post....I believe the dishcloth is a pattern from the Monthly Dish cloth group I belong to. They have a knitalong twice a month. The link is in my sidebar on the right.
Back later with updates and photos....
