New Things:)


Image hosted by Photobucket.comI understand this is a knitting blog but I had to post a pic of Tommy the Turtle.  Yes a turtle has adopted our family.  He is almost the size of a hub cap and LOVES our backyard!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis is the begginings of the hat.  I put a ton of stitches on it, lost count!  I think once it is finished it may be big enough for DH!  It is skt st so it rolls.  using Sz 3 16' circs and sock it to me sock yarn.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comGoodies in the mail.  This is from Elann.com.  I didn't really expect it to be ribbon yarn but I think I like it.  This is the pattern of the tank top, better pic below.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comLots of balls for this project.  I made a swatch to check gauge.  It knitted up well but looks more casual that I had hoped.  I stopped and made a smaller swatch b/c I may make a ribbed sample instead to check gauge. As you can tell I am not totally sold on this yarn for this project!

What is the name of that pink ribbon yarn from Elann? It is so pretty. I may want to try it sometime. Thanks!

Turtles are COOL pets. Just ask your niece. She has two of them. One she has had for almost ten years.

BTW, very neat blog!

Tell Chris and the boys hello from all of us!
