I happened upon a website for a movie coming out in February called Coraline. It's directed by the same guy that directed Nightmare Before Christmas, but what surprised me most (in a good way) were the two gems nestled in the site about knitting!

I finally took a picture of my legwarmers, but it sucks because I look like poo in girly legwarmers. I think they turned out all right.

Intarsia in the round?

I'm making hats (and maybe mittens, but I gotta be realistic) for my niece and nephew (4 & 2) as X-mas gifts.

Two Christmas Hats

So my brother gets married today, and just in time for it (and Christmas,) I finished the hats he asked me to make for them.

OT: A Few Pics of Our Winter Wonder Land

Man has it been cold and snowy. Here are a few pics of my kids in the snow and such. Maybe tomorrow will be a snow day too.

Pattern Ideas

I'd like some pattern ideas for the yarn in the picture. For some reason I'm attracted to the colors in it. I usually like solid colors, so I'm lost on what I could do with this yarn.

Odin's Sweater - Part I

This is the most complicated project I have attempted to date. I began working on it last night (17 December 2008) and am pleased with the progress thus far.

Christmas mail frustration

Since finishing a wonderfully chunky scarf last week, I've barely picked-up a pair of needles. Not because I need to take a break, but because the complete set of Knit Picks nickel DPNs haven't arrived from just about the only UK supplier.
