Today I began a little knitting group. Well knitting, crocheting, teaching, learning, children running around screaming, babies eating needles and gnawing on yarn, group. I hope it sticks. It's that good kind of chaos that leaves me feeling like the rest of the day is calm cool and collected. And it wears out the kiddos.
Today Soulemama blogged about what's in her knitting basket and I thought- Hmmm I don't have a knitting basket, I have a knitting space between our trunk and the love seat and then there's the overflow.... We won't talk about that....
But then I realized there's yarn all over the house. And I really like it that way. So I dug up some places there are yarn and this was after I had already picked up a little.
A yarn covered diaper next to a yarny WIP
Yarn came in the mail today from Mamaw to finish off a baby gift
Part of my stash that was revealed to the knitting ladies today
Ahem- the diaper bag with a purchase from yesterday....
Penny's Halloween lady bug ears that are still played with.
And finally my knitting space. Complete with my knitpicks harmony needles I got for Christmas (LOVE!) and most of my works in progress.... Here they are in detail.
A baby blanket in a made up classic ripple. It is very American looking, but also very lovely I think.
A mystery test pattern knit. I can't wait to blog about this one and also about the person who wrote the pattern, probably one of the coolest people I internet know. (You know, instead of real life know...)
A waiting scarf for Grammy that was promised back on New Years and still not started (Sorry Grammy!)
Penny's Christmas Blocks that still aren't finished either... I got distracted by other beautiful things.
