Hand Warmers

From the yarn that my in-laws got for me and the pattern from One-Skein Wonders I give you The Wave Hand Warmers.
These were very quick, easy knits. I finished one in an evening and the other in an afternoon. It was very nice to feel a quick sense of accomplishment. I have another skein of yarn from my in-laws to make another pair of these lovely accessories.

Merry Christmas

This was a very good Christmas for me. My in-laws got me 3 knitting books...
I also got two skeins of Cascade Pastaza to make The Wave Hand Warmers from One-Skein Wonders, along with a set of size 8 dpns.

I got a new iPod from my husband (a silver classic). After uploading my music, videos and pictures to the iPod, I searched for knitting podcasts (I never really looked for them before). I downloaded Pointy Sticks. I'm looking forward to listening to these episodes (except for 8, it wouldn't download for some reason).
I also gave my mother-in-law a Chevron Scarf that I started in August. I've been working on it when time allowed and when she was not around. I finished a few days before Christmas. I used Moda Dea Dream Solid yarn which was nice and soft.

Hope everyone had a great holiday too!


Today we celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday. A few months ago she showed me a picture of the "sleeves" she liked. I found the Hug pattern online and ordered the yarn (my husband picked the colors). It was relatively easy to knit. I found I had to write the pattern out so I could follow it. The smiley faces were used to mark when I finished a row. It definitely helped me when I would leave the project and come back to it.

I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky yarn. It was so yummy! Nice and soft.

I have enough left over now that I can make something else. I haven't decided what yet, but my sister-in-law did say she liked some of the Fetching patterns she happened to see. So I searched Ravelry and found Fetching by Cheryl Niamath. Of course I have a few other projects on my plate right now, so the Fetching may need to wait.

On another note, the teacher's in my school are involved in a competition. We are all wearing pedometers and working to get over 10,000 steps a day. I did well during the week, reaching over 10,000 each day. This weekend though I seriously slacked. I'm hoping this coming week and weekend I can reach that goal everyday.

On a different note...

Nothing to do with knitting or books, but I found these cool online activites. Have fun!
