easter egg (take 2)

okay here is the second attempt at the easter egg … this on i did useing a double strand of cotton one blue, one white. i like the way the colors blended together.

so i am still not convinced that it looks like an egg – i think i might see if i can find a bunny pattern and do that … we shall see.

the sweater is moiving along nicely i just have to do the shaping on the sleeves and the boarders and then i can block and finish that.

well i guess that is all for now …

project spectrum

i joined project spectrum today i think it is a really fun and sorta a non conventional way to knit with different colors that you may otherwise never use. so april i need to knit some thing in yellow & orange … i think i have the yellow figured out, it is going to be the yellow bernat yarn that i just picked up recently that i am going to use for a hat for caps for a cure.

to go along with project spectrum i joined the postcard swap, i think this is going to be a fun way to get to now other people – i guess it could be considered the mondern equivelant of pen pals.

easter egg??

in my opal sock list somebody found a pattern for knitted easter eggs, so last night i gave it a try, this is how it turned out: not as pretty as the original, the top is sorta funny looking but i can deffinatly see the “egg shape” so I think i am going to give it another run tonight and see if i can’t improve.

now for the important things:

1. i have decided to frog the bohemian hat, i am going to start again using the
simplest cap of all pattern, i think it is going to look much better than it does now … so i am going to have to knit fast to be able to get it in the mail on moday …

2. i have finished the back of the baby sweater i am doing for my friend, its going to be a vneck cardi in bernat satin, baby blue … it is very cute, i do need to get a few more skeins though because i want to make a hat and booties to go along with it …

3. last night i finally cast on my first ever opal, for dad’s socks although i only completed 1 round we are now moving in the right direction … onward and upward

4. i picked up 2 skeins of bernat baby boucle for caps for a cure, a yellow and a multi color purple (here is a picture)

5. and most important … my mothers cat had kittens wednesday, so we are taking one, there is a brown & white and a black one – i think we are going to take the brown & white one … now we just have to come up with a name and of course ds (7) and dd(5) are trying to help ...
