The last bottle cozy didn't out quit the way I wanted. So, I made another one. This was soom maroon Encore I had left over from my Maroon and Black Skull Socks. I wanted to knit a couple more rows at the top, but run out of yarn.

I forgot to post about my last KnitPicks order. I finally ordered a set of Harmony Interchangeable Needles. I don't have pics of them yet, but here are pics of the yarn I also ordered.

Volcano Twist


Inca Gold Essential Tweed


For some reason, I only ordered 1 skein of the Inca Gold on my last KnitPicks order, so this time I ordered another skein.

Here's a pic of the Bottle Cozy (second attempt). The spacing between the double cables is a little much, but oh well.

I finished my Dallas Stars Away Scarf. I started it on April 5th, and finished it today. And no, it didn't take me 2 months to knit a simple 2x2 ribbed scarf. It's just that I didn't work on it straight through. I knitted most of it during the Stanley Cup playoffs, but put it aside when Dallas got knocked out.

Yay!! My first gloves. The fit is a little off, but I think they're pretty good for my very first pair.


I've started over on my bottle cozy. On the first attempt, I didn't make it big enough. Also, I'm changing the pattern - the first attempt was going to be 2x2 ribbing; this time, I'm throwing in some double cables.

And, I'm practically finished with my gloves - I'm just weaving in the ends and closing up the gaps between the fingers. Pictures coming soon.

I finally decided to take on some gloves. The pattern is Kerri Cadd's Cigar Gloves but I finished the index and ring fingers.

They actually fit. And yes Jackie, they're inside-out ;-)~


I just need to finish the pinkys and thumbs and weave in all the ends

The pattern is Cheryl Niamath's Percy. But, I'm calling mine Mercy, since it's a man-purse. I can't remember exactly when I started this project; I think it was the first part of May.

I'm knitting a cozy for my water bottle because I'm tired of it sweating all over my desk at work. I have a couple other projects that I'm working on but haven't posted - either here or on Ravelry - but will be soon.
