More Tiny Projects
I cast on for Mike's hat on Tuesday night and finished it last night.
Yarn: Um, some Acrylic crap, but it will wash well
Needle: US 8 Clover Bamboo DPNs
Pattern: Um, kind of like Will's hat, I knit K2P2 ribbing for a while, then stockinette stitch for a while, and finally I worked out the decreases and voila! A hat!
Wednesday night I cast on for Mom's ornament and tonight I finished it up.
Yarn: It came in a kit.
Needle: US 3 Brittany birch DPNs
Pattern: Supplied by the kit
Mods: I used a US 3 instead of a US 5 because I liked the look better.
This was my first attempt at stranded knitting and I have to say it came out much better than I anticipated.
Now, I meant to post yesterday and talk about my kitty catnip toys that I knit up today for Zoie and Stash ( I still have to make one for Hook) and the lace scarf I'm planning with the leftover yarn from Grandma's shawl, but I got distracted. What could distract me?
Blockbuster. You can now take your mailed DVDs to Blockbuster and exchange EACH ONE for an instore rental. AND you get new DVDs mailed out quick-quick-like-a-bunny from your online Queue. So that's like a lot more DVDs a week than I used to get and um, I sort of watched movies last night and I kind of bought a few more (love that 4 for $20 deal) so I'm going to go watch movies and work on a scarf.
Progress tomorrow and don't forget to enter my wee contest. :) I love love love reading your holiday memories. :)
