Knitting Content and pictures - no really, I've got pictures.

Completed projects! I made this beautiful clutch from a book I picked up on Saturday called One Skein by Leigh Radford. I love almost every single project in the book. I'm sort of surprised that it took me so long to buy this, but I'm not at all surprised that I've already made something from the book. The clutch was a blast to knit and I really loved the act of knitting it and felting it. I used Lion Brand's new felting wool in the color Pumpkin. (When I purchased this yarn, I alson

bought a pair of those light up knitting needles, but that's for another post, at another time. I'm planning on loading this baby up and carrying it to work tomorrow. It's the perfect color.

I've also completed my branching out scarf in Knit Picks Shine. I have knit this pattern before, but in the wrong yarn. This was the perfect yarn and looks so damn pretty blocking on the floor that I don't want to pick it up - I want to use it as something to admire everyday when I'm in my living room.

Here's a close up look at the leaf pattern - love it.

This is the length - and what people who have only hard wood floor do when blocking a piece. Can you imagine what's going to happen to my linen closet when I make my first big lace shawl? I better move to a place with some freaking carpet.

Well - blogger won't give me any more picture up loads, so I'll tell you instead of showing you what's on the needles now. I'm making myself the Grown Up Bonnet from the book Knit2Together. I love this piece and can't wait to wrap myself up in it for the winter.

In other news, this has been a really hard week for me and I've got a lot of hard weeks ahead. But even in the midst of darkness in one person's life, you can see the joy in other's lives - such is the case in my dear friend Danielle has announced that she and her husband are having a baby. I couldn't be more thrilled for her. I can't wait to meet her dear, dear baby. I know what a wonderful mother Dani will be.
