knitting & purging

First, the knitting...I'm working on a cute little bag and an afghan (yes, I am crazy) but the sweaters...that's where I've made the most progress and that's what will (hopefully) be finished soon! First, the bonita:

The back is done and the front is *almost* done. Then I can do the cap sleeves and do the finishing (the part I'm DREADING.) I went like gangbusters on this for awhile but haven't touched it in a couple of weeks. Hoping to possibly finish it up this weekend - fingers crossed!

I also started this one awhile ago...a sleevelss cowl neck design. Here is the front, almost complete. Have to say I really refer knitting in the round. Hopefully soon I'll be proficient enough to convert patterns so I don't have to do as much piecing after the fact! The bottom will look much nicer after blocking and it will be finished off with a thin ribbon. Hopefully I'll have it done in the next few weeks as well!

Yesterday I cleaned, organized and purged. Seems I do it once a month and somehow, the piles grow and multiply in the blink of an eye. I'll probably be posting stuff here and there that I'm looking to unload but am to lazy to list on eBay :p My laziness means freebies for my readers - all 15 of you :D Can any one use an HP 96 black ink cartridge let me know and I'll send it off to you!

    I'm stunned! I can't believe how FAST you are. And good!!! How long have you been doing this again? So impressive.
    I started knitting a scarf about 6 weeks ago( my 1st project since age 8, and that was a scarf too, lol)and have gotten maybe 1/3 of it done. I was really into it for about a day, and then, ehh. I guess Noah will be wearing it NEXT winter. ( if I ever do finish it). He did tell me I could make it into a neck warmer though, smart boy. ;)

    Seriously, I am blown away by your knitting skillz- are you part 'Bionic Woman' with super fast motion hands? ;) And I bet you scrapped about a dozen layouts too in between!

    erica, you rock. and always leave me speechless with your talent, or spitting diet dr. pepper on my computer screen with your wit. =)maybe it is a good thing we've never met in real life, because i would either not have anything to say to you (speechless) or i'd be spitting diet dr. pepper on you (wit).
