I'm the "Firestarter"

Hey all it's been a while. Well I have another project on the needles. I couldn't resist. I loved this pattern when I first saw it on flickr. It's Yarnissima's "Firestarter" pattern. A FREE pattern that she will email to you by request. I love how it is turning out. I am gifting these to a friend who helps me out with the kids. She was a HUGE help when I was in the hospital having Cierra. She kept my boys for a week. I will also be knitting these for my friend that was with me during labor. She loves the pattern as well and she was a great stand in coach. She stood in for my husband who is deployed. He missed the birth by 2 days. Here are the stats.

Yarn: Yarn Pirate Booty Club "Calamity"

Needles: 2.5 mm circular

Sockblockers: Made by me out of a plastic placemat.(placemat was 50 cents...can't beat that!!) tutorial here.

As for my Tomato sweater it's coming along. I am knitting the body of the sweater now. I haven't really picked it up since I started the "Firestarters" though.

Now to leave you with a sweet picture. Me and my daughters in our matching Yarn Pirate Penllyn socks...I love this shot!

Mommy & Me Matching socks=LOVE!!

Hope that everyone has a nice day...happy knitting!
