KAL Felted Stocking FAIL update!

Ok so I know I said I bound off the other one halfway through and tried to hand felt it just to see how it would turn out.

Turned the heel

This is an update on my socks, progressing slowly. This is knit with my own handspun using the CD spindle. I really like this yarn!

When will I learn?!

When will I learn to calculate gauge on EVERYTHING?! I thought that since it was a felted christmas stocking, and nobody would be wearing it, gauge didnt really matter.

Bitter Sweet Sweater

I was making this sweater for a woman at work that was pregnant. I had already made her an baby afghan and gave that to her. Last week she lost the baby.

From my colleagues...

A few of my colleagues have found me knitting during lunch breaks and while I administer tests in my classroom.

The WEB's Yarn Sale is Killing Me!

OMG! How much more money can I spend on yarn? I'm going to have to get to the mail box before the BF does. I always get this comment "Don't you already have enough yarn?". Ummmm...NO!

Baby's hats?

I would like to make some hats for a couple of babies in the clan. I've seen the tomato hat and the apple hat - they're cute. Any other good ideas?

knitting philosophy

Even though I've knit for nearly thirty years it's been only recently that I've really bothered to "learn how" to knit. Part of that was learning how to knit continental.
