Well I have been busy! I get on a hat trip and I cant stop!
Last time I made hats I made 18 of them in 21 days!!! *yikes*
(This was last year!)

I have made 2 hats so far and I have another one 95% done!
All are made with acrylic yarn! (most of my stash is acrylic or fun fur! lol)






I will post pics of the other one as soon as I get it finnished!

I hope everyone has a safe 4th of July!

I agree, knitting for charity is fabulous on several levels.
Jello: I suggest: http://www.snugglesproject.org/ for to The Snuggles Project, a nonprofit linked to Hugs for Homeless Animals. They ask for small blankets for shelter dogs and cats donated by crafty crocheters, knitters, quilter, and sewers. These blankets are great stash busters, quick, and easy to make and sent to local shelters in your area.
A good way to get those acrylics that just seem to pop up in the bottom of stashes.

Thank you for linking me to that!!!! I just read there whole site! I love it and I love that i dont have to mail them the items. Even small blankets weight alot some times! I will soo start working on one tomorrow! I need to call my local shelter first tho. I want to make sure they will take them! If not I will call another shelter! I have to do this! I have gotten all my pets from people who no longer wanted there birds,bunny,hamster and I found a very sick kitten in my yard last august that lives with me and the other pets! They need all the help they can get!  Grin
Thanks again!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Doing it in public: Leave me alone and let me knit! on: June 17, 2007 09:08:29 AM
I know the feeling. When I go to the doc I take my knitting with me and sit in a quiet area away from everyone so I can do it right and not mess up.

Well 9 times out of 10 someone has to come to the other side of the place and ask me 100 questions. I have to stop knitting and tell them. Once I answer all there questions most of the time they go away.

But theres a few who must sit right next to me and gaze at my hands. I cant stand for someone to stare at my hands while im knitting. I cant think of what im doing. All thats running thru my head is "why is she watching my hands?she cant even tell what Im doing! The stitches im working on are between my hands,she cant see there. Please go away so I can work on my item!"

So needless to say I dont get anything done 9 times out of 10. Sad

There was one time tho where I was happy to show someone what I was doing. Smiley

This woman came up to me in the docs office and said her granddaughter asked her if she could ask the lady with the yarn a question. So I told her sure!
The little girl,maybe 6 years old, asked me "what is that pretty thing your making?" (Its was just the top of a chirstmas stocking.But I was making the top,heel and toe in pink and the rest in black.) I only had the top pink section done and about 4-5" done on the leg section. But I sat there and told her everything I was doing!

She had a smile on her face the whole time! She was learning crochet at the time from her grandmother. The grandmother told me she was raising her and that the girl loved watching anyone whos making something with yarn! But I was the first person she had ever wanted to go ask a question to! I was sooo happy! I Think she will be a knitter or crocheter when she gets older! You know we might be knitting one of her patterns one day!  Smiley

Aura_reincarnation - I love your socks!!  They are so colorfull!!

After reading through this thread again, I realized I never posted the pic of my finished booties.  Undecided

So, here they are in all their glory:
http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q38/psmommy/booties001.jpg
The color's a little off due to the serious lack of light in my apartment (they're a deep purple not black), but you get the idea.  Cheesy

Thank you! I enjoyed making them!

I like yours too!!!
My next ones will be a solid color with something around the top of them! Wink

My camera is broken, so no pics yet, but I finished my booties!  They turned out nice, but a little big for me.  Maybe I didn't knit them tightly enough.  They are comfy though.  I passed the pattern on to my knitting partner in crime and she's going to try some too!  I think this is a great stash busting project! 

Mine are alittle big too. But I still like them! lol I think its because of the spacing of the bars and the fact that we are using 2 strands of yarn. Wink

That really is a nice pic!!! I love it! I love all the detail you put into it. From the arms being just right to the shoe strings! Keep upi the great work!


If I had to say something it would only be that she needs a step or something to sit on. Wink
