Shhhhh... Secret Pal 7

I have signed up for a 'Secret Pal' exchange.

Kind of like a 'Secret Santa', but not during the festive season. :D

I have NO idea what to expect, but I'm hoping it will be loads of fun!

My SP'er will be coming into my blog to read (yay! that'll make one reader!!) to get a feel for things I like and knitting related things that I might be yarning for (geddit... yarning / yearning???). I'll put a schpeel on that a bit later.

I'm very excited and can't wait for the 'games' to begin!!!

Scrunchable Scraf!

Well, I'm making my first winter toasty. I know it's still the 'middle of summer', but if I get ONE set done each for DH & I, then we at least have one set... right?

So, I'm making a "Scrunchable" Scarf and hat set for myself, and a Ribbed set for DH.

It looks like it's going to take about 3-4 balls of Patons Inca. My scarf set will be in 7004, and DH is going to have 7007.

Spanky new stitch markers


Made with Fire Polished Crystals, shown sitting on a 10mm needle.

I'll soon make more and post them on Ebay for sale.


The next project?

Well, I desperately need a needle case, but I have no plans of knitting one. So the question is, what to knit next?

I have some great yarn that's like an icord made with cotton, which I have to make a shrug out of... so maybe I should knit that?

Now to find a pattern, it would have to be very lacey, otherwise it would be too chunky. And I think I'd like a bell shaped sleeve.

If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears!
