Some Knitting Projects

Since I have nothing really to talk about, and this IS supposed to be a knitting blog, I'll show and tell some of my current and recently finished projects.

"Cables A-Go-Go" Pullover.  I'm knitting this for a store in Virginia, for them to use as a sample sweater.  It's a nice pattern and I'm enjoying working cables, which I haven't done for a while.

This is the Tea Cozy I knit for Pam, for our Cousins/Aunties Christmas Gift Exchange.  Don't know if she even drinks tea, but she can wear it as a hat if not...

This is another sample project, for "baby soakers" with an attached skirt.  I really wanted to get a picture of Carson modeling these, but we couldn't manage to meet up with his mama.

A shawl I'm working on, called "Galadriel's Mirror".  I love the yarn, the colors are beautiful.  This one is on the back burner till I finish the sample sweater tho.

And this is the "Advent Calendar" Lace Scarf I made during the holidays.  You were supposed to knit a section of lace every day during Advent.  I finished it on Dec. 28th so didn't quite make it, but it was fun.  And the yarn is a color called "Poinsettia", which I figure is perfect for this project.

 This is a 'chemo hat' (the Shedir Hat from Knitty) for Lorraine's mom, Eileen, who's just starting chemo.  She's the world's sweetest lady and I wanted to make her something soft and cuddly.  I love the yarn I'm using (Berroco Pure Merino DK yarn), it very soft and a pretty pale seafoam color.

I've got tons of things I WANT to start, but I need to get all this stuff finished first!

the pics are terrible - you need to dig out the digital camera LOL - none of those look as pretty or colorful as they are in person!

I know, they are awful pix. But my big camera eats batteries at an alarming rate. Give me a good digital for Valentine's Day!
