Hello World! It's sunday, the hubby is taking a nap and I'm watching tv or a change. I put the knitting away for a while today to stare at the tv.I am working on two projects...one is the lining of a bag for my tote exchange that I am in. I have had so much fun making this. It is the first project that I have knitted in the round and I really like it. It's not a felted bag, so I picked some really pretty colors and I am lovin it. I am working on the lining now and it is just about finished.I am also working on a booga bag for me. I won a hank of Malabrigo yarn and am using it for the bag. I am using a solid color for the bottom and the handles so there will be enough of the verigated for the bag. I carry it in my purse so that when I'm out I can have something to do while waiting.I just finished a scarf out of some of that fancy, shiny ribbon. It is very colorful. It is my Knit One, Kill Two project from my WhoDuKnit mystery knitting group. I just love that group! As soon as I can get my model to stay still long enough, I'll take a photo and post it here and on the WhoDuKnit blog as well.I have to do another scarf for my neice. She was supposed to come for a visit with her dad, this thanksgiving, but it looks like they won't make it, so I will mail it to her in Indiana. Her favorite color is red, so I found some really neat verigated yard and got some of the yarn that everyone is using to make scarfs with, but it's not eyelash yarn. It's red and will make a beautiful scarf.Our WhoDuKnit gourp is now doing a mystery ball swap. It is going to be so much fun. We get to take one or two skeins of yarn, hide all kinds of goodies in it as you roll it into a ball. Send it to a person that we are paired up with along with a pattern for them to knit. As they knit the project, they find the goodies. When they get to the end of the ball, there will be a note with the senders name on it. It will be so much fun, I just found out the name of the person I have and have already sent her an annonymous email asking her a million questions. When she responds, I'll pick the yarn and the pattern and start winding the ball.I really need to come up with the next swap and host it, so gotta put my thinking cap on and come up with one.Well back to the tv for awhile.....lol.
