What Kind of Knitter Are You?

Cold Icy Valentines Day

This is the February Dishcloth from yahoo groups Dishcloths. I used peaches and cream in hot pink and I really love this design.

I cannot go out into the cold and ice, we are iced in today. So I have emailed all my exchange leaders and let them know I will not be able to get out to the UPS store and the post office until Friday.

I love doing the exchanges at the yahoo group AtMyHouse, the people are all sooo nice and getting the packages to me brings me as much pleasure as hearing that the people I send to love what I do.

Today is a bad hurting day. Can't do much knitting, but am crocheting some heart shaped coasters for my house as they are so easy and so very pretty.
These are designed by Julie A. Bolduc and are called Valentine Coasters.
We are all home today (everything is closed in Baltimore and DC) so we are watching the Westminister Dog Show - we recorded it with dvr using Comcast Digital TV.

I have not eaten yet, got up around 10. Oh not true, DH gave me a nestle's crunch ice cream bar which I scarfed right down. Now I have to go make a sandwich.

Jester - My pug got neutered on Saturday - and I have to give him antibotics twice a day. So while making my sandwich I'll have to look for a goodie to hide it in for him. Forcing it done his throat has gotten me several deep scratches on my hands - so I have learned just give him the treat lol.

I got a couple of books for Annies attic, and of course I cannot find it right now. It is the afgan crochet book with an afgan for every season. On Saturday MDH let me buy the yarn and I am going to work on the first motif to night. It has a rose in the center , stems and leaves and a rosebud on one of the stems in the middle of each square, the background square color is off white. I choose oatmeal.

More on that later.
I guess that is all I have to say today.
Will try to post daily

Things on the needles

Currently I am working on the First part of Feburary Dishcloth and the Afgan square on a size eight circular ( Joann's didn't have any 7's :-( ). I am going to use Sugar and Cream in HOT PINK, for the dishcloth and more of the red for the afgan.
I also belong to AtMyHouse group. I joined the kercheif exchange this month. I had some very very soft unlabled yarn in gray that I got from an email friend. So I whipped this up in 1 hour. I crochet much faster then I knit. I sure hope she likes it. I will be making one up for myself because it is just sooooooo soft.

Holly Socks Done

I was making these for my son to give to his bride to be for valentines day. I wound up grafting the toes just as she pulled up. Thank God they are done, I just do not work well under pressure anymore. The left sock I did first, and my fibromyalgia fog kicked in and I didn't carry the pattern all the way down the leg. But I am sure she will love them anyway.

I used wool from Italy and I can't find the paper so I don't remember what brand. I used size 2 dp needles and it took me the better part of two weeks to finish them.

They have a partridge heel , and that was very interesting. I really like it.

1st dishcloth square for afgan done

I have decided to use the designs from the dishcloth newsgroup that I belong to to make a lapgan for my scooter, so here is the first completed square. I don't know what happend to the to color, it is done in red heart supersaver red, bright red.

I am very happy with the way it turned out. I will try to do better with the scanner next time
