Knitting Projects

Hello! It's me again! Haha! I took some pictures a few days ago of some knitting projects I've been working on, so I thought I would share these before I forget.

This is a scarf I'm making for myself. I just love the color of this yarn. It was 25% off and there was only one left in this color, so I went for it! I saw today that I made some really funky mistake on it (I don't even know how I goofed!), so I'll either leave it alone or fix it.

This is a sock I'm making for a 'toe-up' sock class I'm taking. Tigger likes to be part of a lot of the things I do, so there's part of his tail. Oh, I forgot to mention that he was also *helping* me with the button tree today. He was trying to sniff the pins that were in their container. I told him no, and then he jumped off the coffee table and knocked over the pin container. I think that kinda scared him because he came back and his tail was big. Serves him right! One day he was on the kitchen table (where he's NOT supposed to be) and I was watching him. He sniffed the cactus up there and got poked! Serves him right again!

I finished the white hat I posted about before (picture coming soon!). All I had to do was sew on 3 buttons and then I was finished, but for some reason it was taking me a long time to do that. Procrastinator!! Anyway, I wore that hat for the first time tonight. I knitted the hat on needles that were one size up from the one the pattern called for because I thought it would be too small. I wanted something that would fit over my ears. But now I think it's too big, so I'm going to make the hat again with the pattern size needles. I have enough yarn leftover, so I think it should work. I just really like this hat! Shadow is laying on it right now. I seriously think I'm going to knit her a cat bed or something because she LOVES knitted things. Which reminds me: Sometimes I put my yarn balls on the floor while I'm knitting and Shadow will come and rest her head on it like a pillow and sleep. It's so cute! And sometimes she attacks it! That's cute too! What I don't like is when Tigger tries biting the yarn.

Ok, I guess I'm in a talkative mood tonight. I'm going to sign off and watch Dan In Real Life! It's one of my favorite movies! He plays such a different character than in The Office.

Ooo Christina, I knit too! But I haven't in a couple of years. Might just break my needles out again! I've made hats, scarves, and ponchos, oh and purses. I might try some fingerless gloves this time.

Girl, you are so creative! I wish I could knit or crochet or something, but nope, I can't! That is too funny about the cat using the ball as a pillow! :)
