Aidez KAL

Who doesn't love a knit a long....well I sure do!!!!  So come join me in knitting a beautiful sweater over on my friend Kelly's blog.  She is hosting a lovely KAL, which has really grown.  I'm so excited to see everyones sweaters.  Here is the start of my sweater. 

I have chosen to knit this in the yarn that the pattern calls for, which is usually not the case for me, I typically change it up somehow.  Well the only change that I made was to the color.....and it seems a little dark.  I know the pic is hard to tell because it was taken indoors....with a flash....but I'm a little scared right now.  Hopefully tomorrow I will get a little more knitting done and a picture in during daylight.....fingers crossed because I already caked my yarn....eek!!! 

Unfortunately I didn't get in as much knitting time tonight as I would have liked to, 
but I did get a good walk in with a friend....

Kinsley's Sweater

Here is my second sweater for the Summer KAL over at blog.  This summer blog has given me soooooooo much inspiration....My list of must knits has skyrocketed!!!!

This is a C-mas sweater for my little cousin.  I was hoping to knit it from stash, but I'm starting to get low on the pink. (I should have knit the green stripes wider and used less pink....but I am not about to rip it back now)

I have approximately two balls that are 16oz each...I hope I can stretch it out so that I don't have to buy a second ball....I would need very little.  Wish me luck!!!!

Stop over and check out the sweaters in this KAL, you won't be disappointed!!!!

Some more box bags to share

Once each of these box bags find a home, they seem to take on the name of the person who bought them with me.   And I just love seeing them being used for projects at our knit ins!!!!!

Each of these three have found a new home.
"The Elizabeth"

"The Shari"

 "The Trish"

As always, no two are the same.  
However I have had requests to make matching of them is in the works for a special order.  But I am going to try and only sell matching sets together.

This weekend I went on a little day roadtrip with some knitty friends and picked up some new fabric!!! I am so in love with it, and can't wait to make up some bags.

I also have some plans for some lined drawstring bags too.......My mind is racing

Stay tuned for "The AlishiaMarie" I just finished that one up tonight.
