My First Real Post!

I usually have at least 3 projects on the needles at once. Different kinds of projects, different stages of completion. People often ask me how I get so much knitting done with little kids and I think this is a major reason. I never have to wait until after the kids go to bed to figure out that cable chart so I can knit. I can always knit RIGHT NOW, because I always have something that is in easy-boring-stockinette mode that I can knit on, while paying attention to something else.

Anyway, today I only have 2 projects on the needles, the pink Rowan Cork sweater from the current Rebecca magazine, and the blue Koigu sock. I gotta remedy that situation by casting on at least one other thing today!

Here are photos of my current projects, plus a couple others finished this week:

Artfully arranged pieces (at least I thought so while I was taking the picture) of Rebecca magazine sweater. It is saying: "Block Me!"

Up close and personal. The color is delicious.

I made this hat last week when my sister Allison was here. She made one and I had to make one too. The yarn is Noro Big Bebe (discontinued) and was half price. As quick and easy as it was, I did have to finegle (will look that spelling up later) to keep the colors from pooling and making ugly black zigzags.

See how pretty it will be with the Rebecca sweater!!

Another current work. Koigu socks.

Christmas sock for Allison (its the second sock, she unwrapped the first sock and took it with her.) Finished last night. Posted by Hello

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
