Oooo.... I am all about this Knitalong. I decided the day after Christmas that I was going to try and make 1 or 2 gifts a month, to spread out the work and money. I will definitely keep this post with my progress!

i am nearly through with my liesel, and i got bored last night... so what did i do? made a goofy hat with an argyle fair isle pattern, and a long i-cord at the top with a pom-pom on it.  it's fun! and i'm going to make matching mittens when i get to the mittens month.  i think the next couple of scarves i do are going to be a little less time consuming, so i can get at least a total of 3 done this month.

I just finished some hats, lol, I know its not hat month!  One was for a swap, but the other two are possible future xmas or birthday presents for my boyfriend's brother and sister!  I will post pics soon.

Also I'm working on Knitty's Yorick scarf.  I've finished making the skull and its about 2 feet long now.  I like the plain stockinette body because its easy to work on during class!

Right now I have completely finished one hat, am about 2/3 finished with a second, finishing the first skull on an illusion scarf, and am about 1/2 finished with a shrug.

*Sigh*

I can never just follow instructions  Grin

so yeah, the way i'm figuring is that the months were a loose guideline as to what we need to be doing.  just as long as we're knitting, right?  i'm working on my clap, and i'm also knitting some soon to be felted clogs for my hubby.  it's a practice pair, so i will be kntting more... probably not in the right month. Embarrassed

There is totally a website... *looks through bookmarks*

Aha, here it is:
http://www.jigsawknits.co.uk/illusioncreate.html

It gives directions on how to create your own illusion pattern. I would just graph out a moon on some graphing paper or in excel or something, and then follow the directions on the site.

Happy mooning!

Erm...


Anyway. I totally got a spinning wheel today, along with 3 pounds of white wool roving. So, needless to say, some of my upcomming projects shall be completely handspun. Ahhhh... it feels so DIY to say that!

rockfullofawesome -

i'm totally there too! one of the ladies in my lys brought me back a fleece from scotland, so i'm going to be spinning most of my yarn from here on out.  it's a merino/shetland crossbreed, springy and soft... doesn't it feel great to get down to the roots of a craft (ie: spinning your own yarn)
