I think I can, I think I can....

LOL I'm the little knitter that could LOL....Well, it's official.....I'm in full holiday knitting bloom PLUS I need to get my rear in gear for the craft show in November OY thinkeths I bite offeth more than I can cheweth.

Here are the 2 things I couldn't get blogger to upload the other day..The shrug is being knit out of Cascade jewel in a really pretty winter wine color...kind of my latest color kick lately. The yarn is a chunky style yarn that is single ply, 100% wool. At first I really liked it, not sure if it was the colorway I liked or the entire yarn BUT after working with it, I am not such a huge fan. It started to fuzz up and pill. If it does this now before it is washed, it makes me wonder how it will hold up to wear and tear ya know....

This little beauty is another multidirectional scarf that is also a gift. It's out of Noro Silk Garden which is 50% wool and 50% silk. Stunning colors, only Noro can do it this way ya know....I should be done with it tonight. The shrug is pretty much done now, I just need to seam it and put it away. That makes 2 shrugs finished for gifts. I happen to love shrugs and they are HUGELY popular right now. Hopefully, I can get back to spinning sometime soon. I need to get some more sock yarn spun because I have a specific plan for that!! Besides, I just miss spinning. It relaxes me and helps me take out my frustrations ya know.....hmmm, wonder if that's why some of my yarn is WAY overspun LOL.

Well people, as always, life's to short to knit with cheap and crappy until later........Knit On!!!!!!

Hi! Found your blog on Monthly Dishcloth.
Your MD scarf is very nicely knit. i am a big fan of Noro, especially Kuryeon. I love the concept of the MD scarf. I've completed 2 so far-one with prism mohair-royal blue-gray-rust, and the other in Paton's SWS-the pink and light green colorway. It's as addicting as those Mason-Dixon Ballbands!

I think you'll like the Group a lot. They seem to be real laid back and don't get their panties in a knot about things! Which is why we knit, right? ;-)
