So much knitting, so little blogging

Work has hit the oh-no-we're-not-going-to-finish-on-time phase of our production schedule. We always get to this point when there is about a month left in the schedule. I almost think that we should make a column on the schedule for when the production manager freaks out.

So, I've been knitting as much as I can, but blogging less. I just noticed that I haven't updated my sidebar to reflect what I'm really doing now and I don't remember the last time that I added blogs to my blogroll. Someday I'll take care of that. But today is all about photos.

Finished Fancy Scarves

Patterns: out of my own little head
Yarn: Kollage Yarns, the red one is Passion and the purple one is Romance
Recipient: A customer
Notes: I wish I had used a bigger needle with the purple one. It's a bit on the small side as a shawl/scarf. I thought it would be a nightmare to frog, so I just continued what I was doing. I added the ribbon to it to dress it up a bit and to help it stay on a person's shoulders. As it turned out, the "shawlette" is the perfect size for the customer's daughter.

Started the Dad Hat

smells interesting "What's this?" asks Scout

how convenient! "Oh, it has a handle"

gotta go! "Thanks for the toy Mom!"

I'm making a cabled hat out of Katmandu Aran. Though the yarn is very soft it contains an amazing amount of plant fibers (i.e dead grass) that I'm constantly having to pick out. I usually don't mind plant fibers in wool, but this seems to have a ton. This is the first chance I had to use the pretty stitch markers that Helen made and sent to me. Thanks again Helen!

Finished the Super Secret Project
But no photos until after the winter holidays!

Hmmm...Kollage. I showed the color catalog to my mom today. Not my thing, but I can see how some would like it. It's nicer than a lot of novelty yarns. Your projects turned out very nice.

Scout is a hoot!

I love the shawlette, and the ribbon is perfect for a little girl. So cute!
