EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY.....

In this case knitting past, present and future!

KNITTING PRESENT.......

I started knitting this wrap several days BEFORE EASTER!! Yep- and it's about 18 inches long now......only46 more inches to go!

I'm working with Crystal Palace Kid Merino in 3 different pastel colors and Fizz Stardust in a beige gold yellow.

KNITTING FUTURE.....


This is the BUCKET O' SUGAR AND CREAM STASH I've lovingly collected over the past two years. Many colors to choose from and the collection keeps growing!!! Mason-Dixon Knitting is inspiring me to focus on knitting with what I have....we'll see if I can stick to the plan! And the plan is to make a heap of waaarshcloths and baby kimonos from M-D and also those cute little cupcakes from One Skein Knitting.

Check out the sites. I've posted my FO photos! There's so much creativity on display that i just love going back weekly and seeing what everyones been contributing!

KNITTING PAST....

These are MY Babes inspired by that fabulous Knitted Babes book. They were knit from my stash and newly purchased supplies. now I have enough fat quarters and felt to outfit an army of Babes!The plan was to donate them to my son's school for their chinese auction. He won them back for me..how sweet. Well, they're going to this year's church Christmas bazaar. Hopefully, the boomerang effect is thwarted this time! They were fun to knit, and I am having a hard time letting go!They are named Sally, Callie, and Ally. You do understand why they must go, don't you? When ya start naming them, there's a problem!!!!

Love my 2 U.K Pals from the One Skein Secret Pal Exchange! Looking foward to the August unveiling of who we all are...but it's sad too because it will end and it will be time to move along...sniff!

Would love to know what everyone thinks of the KALs for Mason-Dixon and One Skein. Drop me a comment and tell what you are knitting from the books!

Ooh, love that wrap - colours and textures are gorgeous. Somewhere in my pile of UFOs I have the Rowan Froth scarf in a very similar green.

The baby kimono is sweet, too.

Your projects, past present and future, are all wonderful! I would find it hard to let go, too. I'm loving the M-D Knitalong...so far, I've knit Absorbas, warshrags, baby bibs, kimonos, and burp cloths. Not sure what I'm planning next, although I did buy a couple of skeins of Euroflax. Hand towels, maybe?

Everytime I see these dolls I crack up. I am REALLY thinking of making one for my little monkey!! She LOVES dollies!
