What's on my Needles

I took my very first knitting class this past Saturday at Knittery. We are making a top down sweater.  The class is done in two sessions two weeks a part. This is what I've done so far.  I even used stash yarn I had purchased for a different sweater.  When I'm ready for that sweater, I'll get more yarn. I've been so happy with what I've gotten done so far. We have homework so best to go back to work. It's the same yarn I think it was the flash that made it look different.

Yarn Report - Week 3

I've made progress on the afghan for my Dad. It's about half done now.  For some reason I seem to having more yarn in than I'm knitting. My newest is from Fibernympy. It's a special order called Soft Kitty.  Any Big Bang Theory fans will know the story and song.

Yarn Report - Week 2

I'm already a week behind in my reporting and I feel off the wagon.  Someone was selling a skein of Wollmeise at knit night. It's in lovely jewel tones and I just couldn't not buy it.  Not sure what I'm going to make with it but it sure is pretty. I did trade yarn with someone on Raverly.  I sent her 7 skeins so I'm counting it as out. When I get my trade I'll them back in. They are different number of skeins so that's why I am counting them.

Used this Week: 0 skeins

Design Wall Monday

Well off to a good start. First Design Wall Monday and I have something to post. I'm going to get this done. Turns out I need to cut 2 more colors. It's from the class I took a while ago. The pattern is Now You See It... Now You Don't by Linda Ballard. It's done in fall colors. The ones looking black are really a dark green.

What day is is?

It's been a long time since I'd posted anything to here. Not much to show for the long absent. I finished a scarf and shrug for my sister for Christmas. Pillowcases for my mini group friends also for Christmas. Did I think to take pictures? NOOOOOOO Oh well life will go on. I have been plugging along on my Dad's afghan. It's officially late as his birthday was the on the 1st.  I gave him other goodies and told him about his new afghan.  It's close to half done. 

I stopped keeping track of my stash busting around mid July. No idea why I stopped but I did. Need to be better about that this year.  I am making smaller quilting goals this year and maybe I can get them done.
