Day 11, Jan. 30

If you know me, you know I'm a planner. I like to know what's going on, it's true with my knitting too. Today I planned for my next knitting project, a shower gift for my friend Julie (hopefully she won't see this). So I searched Ravelry and decided on the Little Sister's Dress, made out of Hempathy from my yarn stash. Colors planned and buttons chosen, now I'm ready to start knitting.

Day 10, Jan. 29

Just knitting away on the never ending blanket.

I think someone is jealous of my knitting.

Day 8, Jan. 27

Chugging away at mom's blanket while watching some of the State of the Union address. If you know me, that's pretty amazing, since I'm not really into politics. But of course, I can't just sit, must be knitting on something.

Day 7, Jan. 26

The fourth Tuesday of the month is our knitting guild's meeting night. As one of the guild's co-president, it's a fairly big night for me even if it usually involves little actual knitting. Since I didn't do much knitting today, and forgot to take a photo during our meeting, here is my dog Bella, curious as ever and wondering where I've been all night.

Day 6, Jan. 25

I spent most of my evening getting ready for tomorrow's guild meeting. I finished my boxes and my knitting bag is packed and ready to go.

Day 5, Jan. 24

Today I've been working on decorative boxes for a couple ladies in my knitting guild. These are recipe boxes that I've painted and decorated as a fundraiser for our guild. Right now, they are about half way done.

Day 4, Jan. 23

French Press Felted Slippers are done! They turned out great. They were a little big so I threaded yarn through the inside of opening, tightened it a little bit and tied it off. Now they fit great. Next I have to figure out the best way to add some grip to the bottoms.

Day 1-3

I'm a big fan of knitting and have recently gotten on the project 365 bandwagon. I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone and start a blog of my knitting adventures with a photo a day. So my self imposed rules are that I take a photo a day with my iPhone of something I've worked on that day relating to knitting or some other craft. I'll then post it here and on the Flickr Ravelry 365 group.

I started January 20 and am catching up since then.

Day 1

First time wearing my lacy 22.5 degree shaw/wrap.

Day 2

These are my second pair of french press felted slippers. Fortunately, I get to keep these! I'm impatiently waiting for them to dry.

Day 3

This is a blanket in progress I'm working on for my mom. I bought this yarn with intentions of making it for my grandmother, and when my mom saw the yarn she said she wanted it. So I came up with something else for Mimi and have been meaning to get to this for the last two year. I finally started it and now am very worried about running out of yarn before I get it the size I want it.
