Another new project.

Today I need to make a list. Of every signle thing I need to take with me on my trip. If I failat making a list I ensure certain doom upon myself. I have the worst memory on this planet, no doubt. But besides the listing and planning there is knitting. Fun knitting none the less!

This scarf is black. I had to brighten and tweak with my webcam so much to make the cables show, since the colour is black and not something more elegant and gorgeous obviously the cables are more important. I saw a scarf on Delias that I really liked, but Im broke. I decided I could easily replicate it. Want to see the scarf? Yes, the patch scarf. Mine even has a pompom, I just havent gotten a good picture of it. Im hoping to finish this scarf soon, I want to wear it THIs winter haha!

Trying to show the whole thing.

Close up.

Progress report.

So today Was a lazy day, showered, watched tv, knit. Ive got one old project to inform you about and one old project to update you on!

So we will start off with what I call the cable lapgan, yes an aphgan for my lap! Its in a rather boring tan, but I have a big ball of it so I figured why not use what I have, its my own design so a sort of experimental pattern I guess. Anyways, [crappy] picture time!

An overall view, and my knees.

And a close-up. Neither are very true to colour.

And then theres the lace and agate scarf. Ive made progress, I swear! Its about 34 inches long now, halfway done! Progress picture?


Yay!

PS. Im going to hawaii this christmas and a new digi cam is waiting for my family. Say goodbye to the crappy pictures!!!

FO

Yes, a Finished object. The Dylan hat is complete!
Here Is a close up of the stitches

And here is it from a bit further away! Sort of a bad picture, makes it look as if the hat is a million miles high! Its the angle, I swear!


I hope The recipient is pleased. He better not think its too girly, or I am keeping it! This is a boy who doesnt eat salad because its too feminine *Rolls eyes*.

And info tiiime:
Yarn: Bernat chunky, some giant 1lb ball.
Pattern: My own, A simple ribbed brim hat, made on DPN's.
Needles: Double pointed , around 5mm.
Extra information: Took me two days, I casted on yesterday, finished today. The recipient has yet to recveive this hat, hopefully he loves it as much as I do! Im surprised to find that this 100% ACRYLIC Yarn is so soft and not at all scratchy. An eaaasy knit, cant wait to make myself one out of the GIANT Ammount of yarn leftover!

On a side not the agate and lace scarf is comming along just fine, Ive knit about 5 inches today, Its long enough to go around my neck now.

Link and giant balls of yarn.

Im not exactly sure why the links Before did not work, The html is right but then I check them and Theyre not. Its so weird. I will try again though. Im working on the Lace and Agate scarf. Currently Im about 2 feet done.

Yesterday At school my friend Dylan came up to me and threw a grocery bag at me. There was a giant ball of yarn in it. Earlier that week he asked me to make him a hat, I told him to buy the yarn, and he did. I dont know about his choice though, It seems like it will be a bit itchy on his forehead. Oh well, it should be interesting to see hsi reaction when its all said and done. Im hoping to start on it today, the yarn is at my Boyfriends house though.
