Some stuff


Oh, look at the crocheted candidates for president! How hilarious is that?! I love it--if you make them, they'll probably be collectors items in the future!

Hah, I love that too much!!!

Also, I was reading Norah's blog--did you know she is offering a free pattern that is very swing-coat, Hanne Falkenberg reminiscent?! It is offered on her blog and her Ravelry group members are the test-knitters! How cool is that?! I love Norah Gaughan's stuff....wish I had some needles free at this point!

So there I was, surfing the Berroco free patterns site, when I came upon "Quixotic". For all you mosaic knitting lovers, this looks like the ultimate project! I love the way it looks in black and white, too! How pretty! I'm tempted....

And I'm still in love with Beatrice...I'm sure I posted about this in the spring. It looks so easy and quick--nothing like fast crochet garments in ripple stitch!!! I want to make this with some stash cotton.

Another beautiful (and free!) pattern is the Alexi throw. I love the color of yarn their sample is knit in, too.

Now, on to something I've been holding back--I can't keep it to myself anymore. I wanted to be able to show an FO of this before I posted the link, but that's not gonna happen. (I'm really backed up with Christmas knitting) So I'll share it now! I really want to make one of these starfish dishcloths. It's a great shape, and I love anything ocean-themed!!! Hope that might give you all an idea for gift-knitting....

Well, have a nice weekend. I'll be out of town, so no blogging til next week at least.

wish you had some needles free? You don't have spare needles? Oh, get thee to thy LYS right now - you can never have enough needles! I recently found about 35 UFOs in my stash, and I still have at least 100 sets of needles with nothing on them...

I've got a million needles too, but never in the size I currently want....Quixotic is really cute!

Those crocheted pres candidates is something else. I wonder if this crop is going to be more memorable than most? You'd think so, but you never know.

"Wish I had a free needle" is more a tongue in cheek reference to the fact that in NO WAY am I going to start another project! I have UFOs in large quantities that I need to deal with. AND I'm not buying any more yarn this year! (I really do have plenty of needles!)

Well that was a fun post, I was clicking away to all those sites. Thanks for the trip.
