Jumping on the BallBand Wagon

I got Mason-Dixon Knitting a while ago and here is my first project from the book.

I made these for my One Skein Secret Pal. I also made her these:

And speaking of secret pals, I got a nice surprise in the mail yesterday:

They came from Jimmy Beans Wool and I didn't order them. There wasn't a note enclosed so I'm assuming they are from my One Skein Secret Pal. I've never felted before and these will be a nice first felting project. Thanks Pal!

Finished Object

I have another one! I finished the Razor cami. I used 5.5 balls of Jaeger Albany on #5 needles. The only change I made to the pattern was to do a 3 stitch I-cord for the straps. Oh, and I also split for the front and back at a different place than the pattern called for. I saw on the knitalong where people said that the straps ended up in the arm pit so I tried it on and figured out where I wanted the straps to be and split for the front and back that way.

The lace pattern is super easy to's just 2 rows with the 2nd row being a knit row. My top rolls a bit after blocking so you might want to finish it a little differently.

Knitting in the Park

When Michelle was here, she asked me to teach her how to knit. She happens to be left-handed. I tried to teach her the english way, cause that's how I knit...but that didn't work out too well. I finaly figured out how to knit continental (which I've been wanting to do for the longest) so that I could show her that way. That worked out better and by the time she left, she had a nice garter swatch knit up.

I'm still working on the Razor cami

A Necklace

My friend, Michelle, is visiting for the week. Her birthday was at the end of July so I made her a necklace. She sent me a pic of a similar necklace a while ago and I figured I would surprise her with it...because I'm sure she forgot all about it since she asked sooooo long ago.

An End to a Summer of Baseball

This past weekend, Christian's team got knocked out of the playoffs for baseball. 4 months of baseball has come to an end. Yippee!! Shhh, don't tell him I said that. Every weekend, we've treked out to Great Neck or somewhere near there out on Long Island. Here are some pics:

This was my uniform. What you don't see is the bottle of sunscreen and the gallon of Gatorade by my side.

Stitch N Pitch, with Razor cami on the needles...that's Christian "on deck" in the background.

This is a mural painted on a building in downtown Great Neck. I had to do a double take the first time I drove past it.

I am,until the end of Sept when fall ball starts. Sheesh! And he says that I'm obsessed with knitting!!!
