Sadly my three day weekend is almost over. It was very relaxing, especially with all my easy knitting projects. I can’t believe I have two scarves on the go, but I can’t help it. I am also hoping to knit myself another hat. My friend had her neighbour knit her a Herminone hat (like the one she wears in POA) in red and I would like to knit myslef one in grey. I want to know how to make those cute bobbles and I think it’s a really great hat pattern, even if you aren’t obsessed with Harry potter.

So onto my knitting. I am almost done my basic ribbed scarf. I was knitting it peacfully by the fire until Suzie came along. She has this thing about natural fibers, she just has to chew on them!! Oh well, I guess I need to add cat toys to my list of things to knit. She is a very lucky cat to have someone knit for her!!! Also, I started a double seed stitch scarf, using a pattern from I live On A Farm..  I just discovered this blog and I love it!!! I made the scarf a bit wider than I would like so I am going to continue knitting it (becasue I don’t want to frog my work) and will just fold it in half and sew up the edges when it’s done.

Finally, I have a FO that is long overdue for a blog entry. I made myslef a blanket in October when I was inspired by a fellow knitter I worked for over the Thanksgiving weekend. It is purple and very warm for acrylic. It took me a little under two weeks and it’s amazing. Very quick on big fat needles and the cats love it. So now when I watch tv and knit on the couch, I have the blanket and a cat to keep my company.

That’s all the updates I have for now. I am supposed to be knitting a hat for my school’s knitting club to donate to charity, but I need to cast on again because the first time I made it way to big!!! Maybe I can donate one of my scarves so they know I am trying to knit for others as well as myself. Oh, and I still want to knit those Snicket socks from Mag Knits as soon as I find grey sock yarn. Wish me luck!!!
