International Tote Exchange 4 Coming!!

Hey everyone, it's that special time again!! Time to sign up for the International Tote Exchange 4!! You can go here to get signed up and get the questionaire to post on their blog site. It is really a fun way to get to know more knitters and really stretch those creative juices. I met my very best friend in the whole world on ITE2!!

Granny got Tipsy!?

I joined the Granny Along and found this. It is a whole new way to look at Grannies!! (eek). Not just your grandmother's crochet anymore is it? Think I'll stick to the blanket I had in mind though. I mean really, what the heck yarn would you use to stand up to swimming in the neighborhood pool?? (haha)

More Bag Love!!

I have been having big fun at Goodwill. The two bigger bags are vintage pillowcases I found and recycled into knitting totes (or anything totes). So fun and bright!! I hope someone shopping on Etsy agrees!! You can visit my Etsy shop here. Sorry the pictures look kinda dark, I took them at night. I wanted to get them on here while I was in the mood. The real purses and the Etsy listing are much better!! I'm still learning this camera and well, anyone knows nightime in your poorly lit sewing room are not professional quality. Hehe

Shhhh! Secret Knitting!

I just wanted to show off my first time doing embossed knitting. The project is, you guessed it, a secret. More later!! Sorry for the overexposed pic. I didn't really want to post a good shot quite yet though. I will take a better picture after it's done and properly blocked. It's my first project using cashmerino, so nice on the fingers!!

This little square has a wonderful destiny ahead of it!! It is for something very special I have had the honor to be asked to participate in, but it's a secret. But only for just a bit longer, I promise!! This is my very first time using baby cashmerino and MAN, am I hooked on this stuff!!

I have to kinda laugh at myself. I'm still new enough to the land of knitting that when I fill out questionaires for secret pals etc, that I can't answer yet "what is your favorite thing to knit?" So far, I love everything I've tried. It almost all is new still. So much to still explore, why limit myself to a favorite? Not yet anyway!!
