yeah, it's Wednesday

for about 10 more minutes give or take ;)

Progress on the Chickadee Cowl..hey did you know the Chickadee is Maine's state bird? See read my blog, get a bit of trivia, who knows you could win a game/contest knowing that information huh!

I'm loving the Watermelon Tourmaline (mediumweight, doubled on size 9 circular).

You can see the striping, but not in a neat orderly way, kinda just flowing. Perfect for the car, quick, mindless knitting stuff! Not much hat progress as I was finishing a needlecase order and taking DS shopping...again ;)

On another note, I blogged about some cool knitting gadgets I received from Karastix a while back. Since then, some of my friends had one of these that she wasn't making at the time. So yeah, I got one!

This is so perfect for my little notions bag! After those peeps above posted theirs, she had a run on custom orders, but luckily all I wanted was socks on mine and this set was ready for purchase. I gave her the liberty of decorating the socks however she wanted..heh..has she been reading my blog? So glad it arrived before my trip. Gosh, the stuff she thinks of is awesome!

Hats for Alex another one! This time the Sunday Dulaan Cupcake Recipe
My mods were size 8 circular and Lorna's Laces Shepard worsted in Child's Play, single stranded. Too cute! I don't have leetle ones or dolls to pose on, so this cup will have to do. I have plenty of this yarn leftover for at least one more hat, in another pattern though.

A view from the top!

Well folks, not sure if I'll post again before Saturday. Much packing and last minute shopping to do! I'll be posting from the road, so bye until next time!

The cowl is just going to be gorgeous! I've GOT to get one of those keychains.

Is it sad that I thought for a second Dulaan cupcakes were actual cupcakes?? I think I need to eat a bigger breakfast!

What cute cupcake hats! And that Watermelon Tourmaline is knitting up so prettily!

Karen said...

That cowl is so pretty!!! And wow, the keychain is the coolest thing I've ever seen. You always find all the great stuff. :)

Have a great trip, and we'll hold down the fort while you're gone.

That cupcake looks good enough to eat! I think it's the yummiest Cupcake Hat I've seen so far.

As a matter of fact, I did know that the Chickadee is the Maine state bird ;-)

Have a good trip. The weather is supposed to be beautiful next week; sun, temps in the mid 70's/low 80's and low humidity.

I am a Karatstix fan since you first blogged about them!!!

I really like what you have knit with the STR :)

I have some stuff from Karatstix, but not that! Now want more! LOL So cute!

The watermelon colorway is nice and summery. That's STR, right?
