Been Dreaming!

I have joined a lot of swaps lately and I have filled the requirements for all of them but ONE! the International Scarf Exchange...I have a fun pal that reads my blog HI :) scarf pal! I am going to start working on my pals scarf as soon as I get a break from Christmas knitting....You may ask what swaps I was part. in.. Holiday Cheer swap, Ornamental swap, Stitch marker swap....WOW!
I am apart of The Norwegian Kit-a-long hosted by Yummyyarn lady herself. I will put that button up shortly so you guys can find it easily... I have decided to do a hourglass sweater version with a snowflake border on the sleeves and bottom of the sweater... here is a photo of the snowflake graph.

Hope I can post this, don't want to get caught by the "knitting police" :) This is my first time doing any kind of color knitting so I needed something easy..So it isn't officially "Norwegian", but it will do.
I have also joined the Sexy Knitters Club and we are voting for a KAL right now... It's not to late to join up ladies! Here are some must do's!!!! Orangina and Picovoli
I think I am just going to order the kit from discountyarnsale.com..for Organia, and Shine from knitpicks.com for Picovoli. For P I want to make the sleeves a little longer and sightly ruffled, what do you think?
So how many garments do we have? Ummmm, think I can do it? he he he! I am in love with Bad Penny. Gotta find some worsted for that too! gees I'm a ravenous animal when it comes to this stuff..Ya'll are lucky I left out Kepler (it's b/c I hate seaming) shhh!! Okay after I wrote this I saw on the KAL blog, how to turn it into a raglan, Darnit! guess I will have to do one of these too :)
First and foremost when I am done with knitting obligations the first thing I am starting is my Birch Shawl...Ya'll remember Wendy from Catknits sent me the kidsilk haze for it? I have it sitting on my desk with the needles right next to the 3 balls of yarn... I call it MOTIVATION!!!!!
No pics of the christmas knitting, sorry... Moms Hourglass sweater is shaping up! I am 18' into the sucker! I might actually finish in time! Dads socks are almost done too! I promise pics next time.... Have a good week!

I love the idea of the snowflake border on the Hourglass. That will be lovely! I have never tried colorwork, but I am planning to make it one of my New Year's Knit Resolutions for 2006! ;)
