Lots of FO's for the neglected blog

I have lots to show you...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I knitted this for Hubby's cousin who is going through leukemia for the third time (I'd appreciate it if you kept Christopher in your prayers). It is Halfdome from Knitty. I used some Tahki Cotton Classic for the brim and Marks & Kattens Jeansgarn for the body. It came out rather loose. I'm going to donate this hat and make another with a few less stitches to tighten the circumference.

I made this great dishcloth Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket for the Dog days of Summer Swap. It's from the January 2007 issue of Creative Knitting.

I had some cotton yarn in my stash with no label and I made Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket a Dream Swatch Head Wrap for eldest. It is supposed to be almost 4 feet long but with the yarn I used, I only made it to 30 inches. I definitely want to make another of these.

Go away Jenny...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket. This Bella Scarf, made from Knit Picks Suri Dream, is her birthday present.

Finally, I had an extra skein of the Garnstudio Angora Tweed I used for the ruffles scarf. I made Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket the wave handwarmers from One-Skein Wonders.

I'll warn my few readers. I go back to school on Monday and I'm taking such fun courses as Chemistry, English Composition 2 and Oral Communications. I will try to do better than last semester on updates, but no guarantees!

I'll leave you with this... I'm thinking I have a goal in life now but I may have to put it off until we're done with Navy moves because hubby will kill me if we are over our weight limit due to yarn!!

Lisa - you able to use Suri Dream in July? You must have sat full-on in front of a streaming air conditioner. Or in the Beer Cooler at Farm Fresh ;-).

Best wishes for a good school beginning, for you AND the girls! tanya
