I'm making the Ruffles scarf from Scarf Style for the sister-in-law, the Basic Cable hat from SnBN in the Jellybean colorway for niece #1, Vegan Fox from Knitty for niece #2, and a charcoal seed-stitch scarf in Wool-Ease Thick and Quick for my dad. If time permits, more scarves might spring forward into existence for other lucky recipients......

Me has been told me has healing hands.

Does anyone have a pattern for a knitted snowman with a knitted scarf and hat? My mother had this pattern and can't find it.  She would like to find the pattern again and I was hoping someone here could help.  The pattern is knitted and then put around styrofoam balls.  There are two sizes.  One is about 12 inches tall and the smaller one is about 6 inches tall.  They are easy to make and make wonderful gifts.  If you can help, I would appreciate it!  Thanks!!   Huh

Oh Zephren, I'm so glad to see someone's finished version of that hat! A sister of a friend is having twin boys soon, so I'm going to make the froggy hat and the matching slippers for one of the boys, and the ducky version for the other.

Those are soooo adorable, I think I'm going to make those for my best-friends daughters... I couldn't think of anything and know I have the perfect gift... Thanks for the link!

I whipped up a scarf for my niece using Lion Brand Boucle and Fun Fur.  It was fast, easy, inexpensive, washable and most important....PINK!!!! 

I haven't put it in my photo album but it was my Dec 7th blog entry and includes directions for the recreating the scarf (not that it was even a teensy weensy bit hard).


Hope you like it!

Finger Puppers! From Knitty (summer '03). I have made a bunny and a bear so far. They are qyite easy to make. I will make a group of happy animals and then make a (non-knitted) qulited house for them to live in and give them to my friend's son for xmas. I don't know if he'll love them like I do cuz he's really into Thomas right now. And I also thought they could be stuffed and then they'd be mini "dolls" to live in the house. Hmmmmm..... my wheels are turning. I must get to work now.

I also have a pattern for a farm (the farmer and his barnyard animals). How cute!!!!

I just had to get on here and express my frustration. 
I'm currently working on my second ever project, a scarf for my best friend.  My first ever was a scarf I started for myself a year and a half ago, and just finished.  Of course, I dropped the project several times and did the second half of it in a week.
So anyway, I've had a crappy time with this new one.  First of all, I'm using plastic needles because all the stores have been stripped bare by the knitting boom, and they were the only ones I could find.  My other needles are metal and so much easier to work with (but alas, too big for this scarf). 
And I'm quite rusty at casting on, so I've started over about 4 times.
Hmmph.  Just had to vent.   Angry

Edited to Add:  OMG!  I'm about to start over AGAIN!  Grrrrrrrrr!

Dude, I feel your pain.... maybe I can help with the casting on sitch... it used to be a little tricky for me too. What I do, is:
a.) (if you're a righty) a couple of feet before the tail end, wrap the yarn around your left thumb.
b.) Pretend your thumb is the left needle now, and stick the right needle through the yarn as if to knit.
c.) wrap yarn around and basically, just knit. repeat until you're done casting on. Hope this helped. :-)

Sure, I've got one of those knittin' blog thing-a-ma-jigs!
