2009 Update

Okay so far in 2009 I have made a lot.  Mostly gifts, though.  First, my favorite, Peanut’s Spidey Afghan.  I got the pattern off ravelry, and I used the recommended yarn and changed my colored rounds a bit.

Next, my yarn bee shawl for my mom.  I made up the pattern.  Very easy.

Oh, the socks I made for myself and then gave to my mom.  The mistakes in the yarn frustrated me, and I can’t bear to keep these.  Thank You sucky sock yarn, you have made me detest sock knitting!

Next my Nubby Cardigan from Knitscene Fall 2008.  This one took a while to make since I moved homes a lot when I was making it.

My Sleeveless Shell from Verena Summer 2008.  I started making this as soon as I got the magazine, but put it aside to knit winterwear.  I just did the finishing and blocking about a week ago.  This is a pic before it was actually blocked. The day I wear it, I will definitely take a picture.  My mom was such a fan of it that she asked me to make her one, too.  I think I will have hers done by mother’s day.  Maybe.  First I want to finish my giant granny square blanket.

Here are some fun toys I crocheted up for Peanut.  Easter eggs, which he didn’t really like, and doughnuts, which he loved.  I made the doughnuts using the free doughnut pattern on lionbrand.com

 I made this tote out of a lot of scrap yarn  I hated it at first, but now I love this bag.  I love it so much that I am using it as my project bag. 

I think it looks even nicer in person

Finally, my hand/wrist warmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.  I thought I would get use out of them, but I made them when it started getting warmer outside.  I don’t think there has been one cold night since I have made them.  It’s okay, I will use them in the fall.

Okay, I think that is it.  Wow, I sure have a lot of leftover yarn… Hopefully my giant granny square afghan will fix this problem.  After all, my hubby can’t use the excuse that I have too much yarn, if there isn’t any yarn left.
