I really like the way the yarn knit up like it did. And I think my mom is going to love them. I also started on a hat for my friends birthday. Which I wish I would have done first as I started it today and her birthday was 4 days ago. But she is also a knitter so she knows how that goes. Plus she lives a few states away....think I can get away with the ol' got lost in the mail trick lol. Anway this hat is knitting along really fast. I am knitting her the Official Kittyville hat from the first Stitch 'n Bit*h book. It is also being done in some yarn from Knitpicks I dyed myself. This time the superwash dk weight. Here is a picture of it so far:I am stil working on my son's sweater. It should be done in a week or two. I could get it done with about 3 days of serious knitting, but I have so many other Christmas presents to start on I just don't see that happening. Anyway until next time....

I got a gorgous purse (which is just another stylish project carrier...let's be honest here lol) The fall 2006 issue of Interweave crochet, Night of the living mad libs, some dark chocolate (YUUUM), a little yarn wish list, some pencils, and I know she packed the balloons and band-aids for my son.....but who says I can't enjoy them too :-) And the complete kicker KOIGU, MMMMMMM PRECIOUS KOIGU. Which is my FAVORITE yarn ever. I love the stuff. The colors are very gorgous and I am already turning the ol' mind wheels trying to figure out what in the world I am going to make with them. Something cabled maybe since I am on a cable kick. So thank you Christy. You have been an awesome sp. Now I can't wait for the next one.

I looooooove this technique. I have always prefered the gradual shading type of stripes and thats exactly what I got. Here's a closeup:
Now I am off to try to spin enough to make some sock yarn. I really am happy with this technique.

The Flip Knit book is awesome. Showing different decreases as you flip the book. It honestly hugely helped with the ssk.....I now know I was doing it all wrong. As for the fiber it is already spun and being knit into a scarf. I split the roving in half and spun one half as is, and the other half I split even further into pencil roving. What happened is an awesome stripey fade. I love it. I should have the scarf done in the next couple of days and I will post pictures. Also my son's birthday was Wednesday. He is now five years old. I can hardly believe it. I only bought him one present but it was a big one. I bought him his first four wheeler

And now I am spinning some yarn. I am trying to make a camo yarn and it is turning out pretty well. It's more feminine than the normal camo, which was on purpose because I plan on knitting something for my sister with it. Which she HAS to have something pink on everything she owns so I bought a little bit of pink to spin with the camo colors. Here is a picture of the fiber with a little spun onto the spindle:
I'll definatly post a pic when it is done.
