Playing Catchup!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was filled with cooking and family. Everyone enjoyed the meal(that made me happy), and overall the day was nice and quiet. Thursday night, I laid down and thought to myself, for once, I wasn't stressed out. Family can drive you crazy, and there is always going to be something that goes wrong either at work or at home but at the end of the day, I don't know if I would change a thing, except maybe my job. I'm thankful to see another day, and to share it with the people I love, my family, friends, and my new friends that I have found here. Thank you.

Now, to play catchup:
I didn't list any info on the yarns I used because I'm just plain tired, but I think I listed the info on ravelry, and in earlier posts. If you can't find the info, send me a message and I'll do another post or email it to you.

First up is Baby Eleanor

Juliet

Baby Blanket for Courtney

I finally finished my first vogue pattern for pants. The pattern is V8298. The pattern was pretty easy to work with, and I definitely want to make another pair. I only paid $1.00 a yard for this fabric. I was buying fabric at JoAnn's and the sales woman told me that instead of buying muslin to try out a pattern, test it out on some cheap fabric first. That way, you still have a finished project that you can knock around in if the pattern doesn't work out.



The crochet class I taught a couple of weeks ago went over very well. Everyone learned their stitches and even one student already has one fingerless glove made. She plans on giving a pair to her sister.

I casted on for the front of my mother's shawl collared sweater. I hope to have it done before Christmas. I'm also working on a felted handbag for myself. I'm not using a pattern for the bag so I hope it turns out okay. I want to embellish it by doing some needle felting on it and maybe some beading, but I'm not sure yet. That's it for now. I have to go and update my ravelry page, and watch all my television shows' I've missed lately. I love watching my shows on my computer. It beats taping, or tivo.

Wow, There is a lot of FO love goin' on here! You know how I feel about BabyE....gorgeous. And you must wear Juliet to knitting circle so I can examine and get inspired to get past the garter part. Also lovin the pants, very nice fit!

Have fun catching your breath, and catching up!

Glad to see you had a great Thanksgiving! Also, thanks for the birthday wishes :)

I am so amazed at all you have accomplished. I loved the blanket you made for Courtney, and her face in the picture is pure joy.

Baby Eleanor is too cute! I'm very impressed ;)

Wow, I am very impressed with your FOs, especially Juliet and the pants! The color of Juliet is really pretty, and the pants look like they fit well. I do the same thing now - make the first pattern version out of some fabric I don't care much about but that is still wearable.

Love your 'Juliet'. The color is great and I like the length. I bought this pattern and can't wait to make one.
