Finished objects.......

Dear Laura:

Well, I think I'm getting organized enough for a post. I haven't been slow to post because of lack of material - just lack of a coherent brain!

First of all, I was amazed by the amount of knitting I got done while my computer was off for repair. I found out that I spend a lot of prime knitting time on the computer, browsing, reading blogs, playing games, etc. And that's not all bad - sometimes after a day of work, card games or sudoku "feel better" to my brain. Engages a different area than knitting, I guess. LOL - now that I'm watching baseball most nights (GO CARDS!!) I find that I can knit during the inning and still watch the game. Then during the commercials, I take a knitting break and play on the computer. You want to talk multi-tasking????

Anyway, since last I posted a finished object, I have finished the following items…

1. Wow, I see that I haven't posted a final picture of the blocked afghan with border....that was finished back on 9/19/06 - so here's a long overdue picture which includes the "bonus" felted fuzzy feet!

2. Blue striped socks that I started back in the spring. I finished the first sock and then whipped through the second sock.

3. Orange "loopy" scarf.

4. Purple/multi reversible hat for my Goddaughter Maggie.

5. A worsted-weight crimson "criss-cross" scarf for my niece Kelly's birthday.

6. Finishing work on Lydia's sweater.

7. A Lizard-Ridge block for Grandmother Purl.

8. A fingering-weight Koigu "criss-cross" scarf.


Plus I'm working on a pair of dark red Trekking socks. I've started the second sock, and cast on another reversible hat (sshhh, it's a gift) which is about 3/4 done. I'll finish that tonight, while hopefully watching the last game of the World Series.....Go Cards!!

Keep knitting!!

Great new look!

You have been busy! The more I stay away from my computer, the more knitting I get done. Why is that?
