Amongst the leaves.

Hope that you enjoyed the pictures. The specs are...I knit this with Wolle Rodel Mohair in lt. blue. I use a little more then 4 balls in total. I started this project about 4 times til I got it right. Needless to say it went into the naughty pile a couple of times. But all in all I loved this project and can't wait to wear it home.

Have a great day and once again sorry for all the posts today!

5 Days, 4 FO and a day at the Pool cont'd

***I don't know what happened during my last entry when I was downloading pictures so here in the continuation from the last post....
Here is the picture of the scarf.

Also on Sunday the boys and I got tired of staying in the house. I didn't really feel like going out to play in the gloomy weather so I took them to the pool. In case you were wondering it's and indoors pool. Here are a few pictures of them playing in the water.

Monday was a normal day, I hung out with the kids and also tried to finish my Kiri shawl. I didn't finish it that day but I did finish it Tuesday night and blocked it this morning. Here she is in all her glory.*****This is going to go on another post blogger wont let me upload them again....Damn thing!!!!!!!!!!!****

5 Days, 4 FO and a day at the Pool

I started my weekend with a new project. On Friday I realized that I was going to be away from my "hairy children" while it was snowy in Germany. I thought "I Can't leave my babies here to freeze" so I knit Gizmo a sweater. Started and finished in one day. My own design using some yarn from my stash. The blue is Caron Yarn and the Black is Red Heart Yarn. This yarn was purchased as practicing yarn only 11 Months ago, that is when I first picked up needles and taught myself through books and wonderful World Wide Web. Here is a picture of him.

Now I need to make one for Rockie...It's a good thing I have small dogs I only have 5 more days til I am in California. Also on Friday at 11pm I decided that I needed a knitting tote for the plane ride. I knew that I didn't have any spare wool on hand nor did I really have the luxury of time so....I went to my closet and discovered that I have 3 wool sweaters that I can no longer wear...wash and dry wool...Oops. I know its a sin but that happened before my knitting days. I picked up one that was my least favorite of the three and cut and pinned and sewed and this is what I came up with 2 hours later.

I want to make the other 2 tonight so that I can decide which one to use on the plane. I will find material for it when I get home for the lining. So I guess you could say they it's not a completely done projects but it is usable.

On Saturday I knit a little here and there but no FO to count on that day.

On Sunday I finished a scarf for my friends daughter. My friends mom is a knitter but has problems with her wrists...I feel her pain...and she brought me a bag she found in her basement with some pink "homespun type" yarn. I don't know what the content of the yarn is but it knit up really well and fast. Here is a picture of the scarf. My own design a simple one alternating Knit and Purl rows.

Aprons and Hot Pads....DONE!

Hi all just wanted to make a quick post and so you that I am making great progress on my X-mas projects. The aprons and the Hot pads are officially DONE!!!

Well maybe...I haven't decided if I am going to make one for my Grandma or not. I still have a few more days to decide. Speaking of a few more days, I have 12 days til I am back in sunny California. Two months of California weather, even if it's rainy, is better then the cold weather that we are experiencing now in Germany. The weather changed so fast this year. I am freezing right now. I guess I'd better go and make me a cup of tea. Happy crafting all.
