Birthday Yarn For Me

And this is one of the beautiful things I received for my birthday from a favorite uncle. It's Woolen Rabbit's Laceweight Merino in the Tupelo Honey colorway. I think a finely knit sweater is in order. What do you think?

There Is Actual Knitting!

So to bring us up to date... I RAN OUT OF YARN FOR THE BLANKET!!! Yes. I did. With 10 ever-shortening rows to go. OKAY?!?! Fortunately, Personal Threads was able to come to the rescue. In less than 48 hours from ordering, I had two more skeins of the Trendsetter Scoubidou in my hands. How is THAT for service?!?! Kudos to Personal Threads, and I can finish the blanket. We won't mention or even think about dye lots. Alrighty then!

I gave up trying to make the dragon skin wrap - even I know when I've been beaten. I am making the wrap, it just won't have any dragon skin. That's going much better. I have the ties and right front finished. The left front is making nice progress, and I see a finish by Monday as certainly possible. Haha, famous last words.

Not another

2 weeks have gone by!! I'm nearly finished with the baby blanket - which is a good thing - I'm so ready to be done with it!

And I've started - and frogged - the Dragon Skin Wrap six times. So that is going so well. Not sure how to fix the troubles I'm having, except to perhaps chart it out entirely row by row, and if I'm going to complete it in time for the Ravelympics2008, I don't have time to do that. So that's kind of where things stand. Very frustrating - as usual!

Finished Manos Scarf

I think I mentioned that I actually finished something! I've been getting very discourage. maybe this is the boost I need. Anyway, here's a pic of the finished scarf. Sorry, I didn't realize it's not much of a close-up.
