Those colors are so pretty! I really like the idea of place mats, and it does seem like a good homey thing to have. Of course, I'm in an apartment and I tend to eat either in my room or at the counter, so place mats are useless, but damnit, I want some!!

I've been away from the computer for a couple days and this thread exploded! I feel like I haven't been as chatty as I should. I'm currently still in the planning stages for my crafts. It's dead week here at my college. Next week is finals then I'm DONE!! And then I can craft my little heart out. I've loved seeing how excited everyone is, though. It's so nice!

I sent in my info this morning, and I'm already on the list! I just saw this swap a couple days ago and was a little hesitant about starting it b/c I have SO MUCH homework to do before the end of this quarter, but I just couldn't pass it up!

A funny thing happened while I was filling out the survey, though. I got to the end, filling in everything and paused to think about anything else I might want to put in, and to eat something. I look back and most of what I had just typed was gone, but some of the stuff at the top was still there. So, not everything I typed was gone, but most of it, and none of the survey itself was gone. I have no idea how that would happen, except perhaps fey mischief... Wink

I want to....

1. Knit Mon Petit Chou. I WILL conquer my fear of this pattern
2. Knit a lace cardigan from VK winter 05
3. knit the Sweet Mary Jane Cardigan
4. Knit rambling rose from IK winter 06
5. Diminish my stash. I don't have to not buy yarn at all, but I have to use more than I buy. So all those patterns above in the list? They use yarn from my stash. Handy, huh?

Nice! I did something similar a few years back with Moda Dea Cache, and gave it to a friend for x-mas too! Love the simple skinny scarf.

Oh, just an observation but your stitches look twisted (I think, it might just be the tension of the ribbing). This is not really a bad thing, I kind of like how it looks most of the time, but it can get in the way when doing more complicated patterns. You might be wrapping the yarn the wrong way or sticking your needle in the wrong side of the stitch. Though, it looks like it skips a row so it might just be a problem with how you knit or purl. I recommend knittinghelp.com for videos on knit and purl stitches, as well as lots of other stuff for future knitting projects.

Wow that looks great!
I can wait to make something that beautiful when I learn to spin & dye my own wool Grin

Yeah, I can't wait to be able to spin nice yarn of my own, but I was very lucky to have a family member who trades me yarn for jewelry (my other crafty passion) and who the rest of my family will buy yarn for me from. I have very lovely yarn around that has some incredible sentimental value, I might as well make beautiful things from it!

I love it! It looks like a soft fuzzy monster (the best kind, imho).
