Wolfen Cam Monday/An FO!

I made Wolfen a sweater over the weekend. I just finished seaming it up.

I used the Pampered Pooch pattern in Not Your Mama's Knitting. The only changes I made were to make the section around the tummy shorter than on his back and to intarsia the monogram on instead of embroidering it. Oh, and I had to do a little math because he has a large barrel chest compared to the rest of him. I think it turned out alright and I think he likes it. Well, he tolerated me poking and prodding to take measurements and to try it on him at least.

W is for Wolfen!!

It's Like Christmas, A Month Early!

I've gotten sooo many goodies in the mail over the past week. My International Scarf Exchange pal sent a beautiful scarf made of baby alpaca. It's really cushy soft. And she sent a ton of other treats too.

I joined another swap at Swap-bot, of course, and received this great yarn in earthy colors and other great treats.

These books arrived yesterday...

As did this huge Knitpicks order.

I said I wasn't going to make any gifts this season, but I'll make a couple. The line-up goes from left to right: A sweater for my nephew in Crayon, armwarmers in Elegance, the Pampered Pooch sweater (from Heather's book)in Salishan, the doctor bag in Knit2Tog in WOTA Bulky, Toasty Toasties (also from Heather's book) in Decadence, a hat and neckwarmer combo in Decadence and legwarmersin Wakashan....mind you, that 3 of the 8 things are for myself :)

The weekend can't get here soon enough!!!

The Unhalloween Party

A few of us went to Jill R's place to avoid the chaos otherwise known as The Village last night during the parade.

Chicks with Knits!

And here's Trixie! Notice the paw inching towards the yarn?
