Something Different

And now that all the knit gifts are done, I decided to work on some cross stitch.  This will become a very ornate butterfly.

Ruffles, Tiny Ruffles

So I have been on a ruffle binge as of late it seems. This scarf was knit out of premier yarns starbella flash. Of the two ruffle yarns I have used so far, I prefer the bernat ruffelina. I still have one more ball of flash left so I will be making one more ruffled scarf. Right now though I am working on wanderlust from the new winter knitty.

Afghan of Fuzziness

Behold the completed afghan with my queen sized bed for scale.  This used 10 skeins of lionbrand homespun yarn in 5 colors.  Thanks to an awesome Thanksgiving day sale the thing only cost me 15 dollars to make!

Two Ruffled Scarves

I knocked out two more Christmas presents this week. I hate to admit it, but I actually liked working with the bernat ruffelina yarn. It wasn't nearly as annoying as I figured it would be.

Catch Up

There's been a lot going on since I last blogged.  I have been knitting up a storm and managed to finish up some projects that have been on the needles for a while. 
The reason I have gotten so much done is sad though.  On Saturday,  my grandmother lost a long fight with pneumonia.   She passed away peacefully and I am thankful for that.
So this week I am with my parents getting ready for the funeral.   While here, I have been knitting a pair of Christmas stockings.  Here is the first one.
