Progress is slow.

Here is my progress as of this afternoon...

I guess it would be pretty good if I were on the second sock... But nope. This is still the first. Wow. I only say that because I thought these would be quick and easy when I started them a couple of months ago. I think after I finish this first one I will move on to the No Purl Monkeys for DJ's sister, and then come back to the second one. Don't worry! I will finish the pair... Eventually. Before Christmas, in any case. ^_^

I also taught myself how to cable this week! Finally! And you know what, it really isn't that difficult. Silly me, putting it off for so long and for nothing!

Fun new stuffs!

I went to the craft store today, just to browse around... You know... ^_^ Anyways, I came across this cutie little project bag. I bought one for me and one for a friend whose birthday was last weekend, but I am celebrating it with her this weekend. I think she'll love it. I also want to go back and get some for a few other people. I hope they still have them! : /

That's my current SIP inside... Still haven't finished the first one, but I have gotten to the heel flap and am ready to turn the heel. I also started a nice chunky ribbed scarf. You know how the lure of the first sign of cold weather is... It's not wide, but it's thick and hopefully it will be long-ish. Depends on when I get tired of ribbing. Haha!

Oohh... Shiny!

I made this necklace and earring set for DJ's sister for her birthday! I am just beginning to test the waters of jewelry making. It is fun! I made a whole bunch of earrings for myself and I will definitely take pictures and show them off this week!

This weekend I am going camping with DJ's family. That should be fun. I just realized that I have been working on this pair of socks since the last time I went camping... And I am still on the first one!! Oh well. I have been busy with school and baby projects. And washcloths... Oh, the washcloths... ^_^

Hope you are having a great week so far!

Here I am!!!

Did you miss me? ^_^ Well, I have to say I have still been reading blogs and looking at knitterly things, but I really just haven't had time to update this bloggy! What with school and babysitting and all I keep myself busy!

I have only a few simple FOs to show you...

I know one couple that just had a baby girl... That's the pink hat. And one who is having a baby boy. That's the blue and red hat along with the
washcloths. I am also working on another quick hat for the boy. The shower is on Monday, so I have to get moving on that one!

These are for my friend who just moved into her own place. I also got her a photo album and some blank cards made from recycled materials. (She moved a state away.)

This is my favorite marching band, sans me. :( I would be in the back there with the flags if I didn't have to... You know. Graduate. My little sister is a freshman this year, though, and on the flag team so that's exciting. ^_^

Oh! In addition to the baby hat I am still working on that pair of socks for the momma. I know they will be done by Christmas, so no worries there. I also have a pair planned for DJ's sister... No Purl Monkeys. My fave!! That's all I have planned so far for the holidays. I will definitely fill you in on any other projects I add to the list!

Have you started a holiday list? Who and what is on it??
