Catching up……..or at least trying

Just stopping by to share a little bit of creativity with you.  I realized that it’s been 3wks. since my last post and although I’ve been gone I have been knitting and planning some sewing projects.  I started and finished a Stethoscope cozy only to discover it was too short and the wrong color for my SWAP partner.  So, I made another one.  I really like this project as it is a very quick knit and a very good way to use up the self-striping sock yarn that had just been sitting in the basket longing to be made into something.  Here’s the completed cozy.

I’ve also started on a Cabled Cap from Tanis Gray in Vogue’s On The Go!  Cables Mittens, Hats & Scarves.  I love this pattern as I was one to always think cabels were just to complicated until I found Fall Cable KAL back in ’06 and made my Karoake scarf.   I’m using Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease in Chestnut.  I don’t like that the cable definition is not as detailed as I would like but I will make this again a few times in a merino yarn. Here’s my progress so far……..tell me what you think.

Erin from Eat.Sleep.Knit had a Black Friday Sale and it was absolute madness.  The demand to shop her site made the server crash talk about anticipation.  I finally managed to get on and complete my shopping after about 6 hours of refreshing the site.  I do have to say that it was really worth it.  There was the option to save up to 100% off your order YES, I did say 100% off.  I did get 15% off my order and if you spend over $75 USD you get FREE shipping.  I also made it to the 5M mark in the Yarnathon.  It’s a competition to make the run in yarn from 1M to 26.2M  along the way you win prizes and exclusive discounts.  If you haven’t joined you should and did I fail to mention her shop carries Malabrigo, Lorna’s Lace and many other lovely yarns.

Well this is all for now as I do want to spend the rest of my evening knitting and dreaming of creating more lovely knits.  I’m even thinking of trying lace.  Ok, just like cables Lace sends a bit of a tremor down my spine but I’ve always been a daredevil on my road to being creative so I just have to find the right beginning pattern.  So if you know of one that jump started your love of lace please drop a comment.

Stay tuned for my Creative Year In Review.  I will share a review of my crafts, lessons learned, and my creative prospects for 2009.
