Well Now

We all just knew it had to happen now didn't we, eh?

I just couldn't get into the groove, so I frogged the 3/4 finished sleeve. Sometimes a knitter has to do, what a knitter has to do.

Good thing I have some of this to make me feel better.

Purchased from Susan's SpinningBunny on eBay.

I know what I'm going to make with some of it. After seeing Smoking Hot Needles Morning Surf Scarf, I knew it was going to be on my to-do soon list.

Oh, and [PDF File] these socks. [PDF File] Yep, I'm liking those, too.

I just may attempt to spin and knit a couple of the Morning Surf scarves for Christmas, but I'm not going to push it. If I do it, great. If I don't, that's great, too.

Speaking of Christmas...

I know you don't want to be reminded, but maybe this will lift your bah-humbug spirits.

Two new knitting bags are on the market that you may want to put on your Christmas list.

The first is the Swift by Tom Bihn.

I'm sure alot of you have already heard of this bag. It was designed in collaboration with the readers of Knitty. It is reasonably priced, comes in a variety of colours with your choice of two different fabrics.

Or, if you're interested in something a little more expensive [I'm sure if your significant other was naughty, this would be a great way to make up], there is the PurlPod by Elizabeth Garson.

This is a backpack style bag that comes in some pretty amazing colours. I'm not crazy about the grommet thing that's happening on the inside of the bag, but it is an attractive bag from what I can see of it. At $250.00 a pop, I don't think Santa will have one of these in his big bag of goodies for me, but perhaps he'll have one for you.

Keep On Knitting...

*snort* a month can be a long time, no?
That Kauni looks a mess, but I am sure that you'll fix it and it will be fabu!

The other picture makes me drool, now that I can appreciate the rovings, being a new spinner and all.

Hope you enjoy knitting the NMS!
