Where does the time go???

My resolution to get organized has totally gotten away from me.  But... if at first, you don't succeed, TRY, TRY again.  I refuse to give up.  I just cleaned out one of my yarn stashing {read hiding} places.  My BFF Theresa is making Thread & Sulky free form scarves she saw on Fons & Porter and I have some great bits of leftover novelty yarns to share with her.  I can let go of this yarn knowing it is going to a good home. {Can you say hoarder?}

I have been knitting samples for the shop.  I made this cute felted bag.


So sorry.  The quality of the above picture has probably forever impaired your vision.


My BFF Carolyn took these pics at the shop, hence the quality!

The pattern "Lopi Hipster" is free with purchase of yarn.  I used 3 skeins of Lopi.  I could hook you up!

I also made the beginnings of this cute cable scarf using a skein of sock yarn and a skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze.  It is so soft and reversible - which is nice with a cable.

The pattern is here

I have also been taking a sock class with Jane.  I have one sock ready to Kitchner and another on its way. Can''t wait to show you the finished project - and yes, the sock yarn was from my stash.  I ambitiously purchased  it at the shop last year.

What's on your needles?

Cute purse! And what a cool idea to combine the yarns for that scarf -- I love a good cable knit! Can't wait to see your socks. I just finished a pair and now I'm hoping to get back to a sweater that's been languishing on the needles for WAY too long!!!
