"S" in the Eleventh Hour

Ok, this is so last minute, and I know the picture quality it not good. But- it is done. My cables project, which is also a donation for the Red Scarf Project. Whew.

October will be the month in which I try felting. More to come later.

Red Scarf Project

I'm intent on joining the efforts of the Red Scarf project. I've been wanting to do some charity knitting AND try out cables, so what better than the Irish Hiking Scarf (see link in my In Progress area). If I can drag my kids to the yarn store, I'll buy the yarn tonight. :)

It is raining Contests!

Another contest: This one is by She-Knits. The contest is easy- if you read the entire post. Just do it. Also, check out the great felted bags there. :)

Back to Reality

Another contest: this one is by Golden Purl. Head on over there and check it out. I just love that there are so many contests in the knitting blog community. So much fun. :)

In other news, I prepare to send my little ones back to school. They start next week. Even worse, I go back to school this week. Don't get me wrong- I love my job as a school librarian, but I have gotten a little addicted to knitting and blogging this summer. We'll have to see how I mananage that in the school year.

Hey, here's a contest for you at "The Times We Are Living" Blog. I think that's an appropriate link to her site, but I'm new to this- so who knows? Can the person I link to tell that I did so? How does that bit of magic work?

Anyway, I am working on an afghan, which I thought to use for my KAL in September, but I'm pretty close to finishing it now. It is the largest thing I've knitted, and it is ok. I know where my mistakes are and I hate that. It is sort a basket-weave-ish pattern, but its hard to tell with my photos. Very fussy and muted.

Candy Bag

Here it is- the Candy Bag! I really liked this pattern, and it gave me great confidence after botched attempts at socks on sz. 2 DPNs. I recommend it for anyone in fear of DPNs.

PROJECT: Candy Bag
YARN: Sugar 'N Cream cotton in Ecru
Sugar 'N Cream Twists in Country Twists
(less than a ball of each)
