I can't wait until I get the rest, it better show up soon! I'm still working on the shawl for my mother, but I'm estimating that it will be done at this progress, in about.. ohh.. two years? I've learned that I despise working on size 17 needles, it's too cumbersome for my little hands. Anyway, this is the final total of all the stuff I'm sending to the RSP. I'm sending the package tomorrow (along with my mix-cds, woot) and hope that it will get there in time. I made the one scarf and the hat and my friend from work made two other scarves (crocheted). Hot. I hope they like it! :)
I'm going to order a massive amount of yarn on Friday from knitpicks, everyone I know wants a hat, geez! I even ordered some for myself (in green/cream/orange colors, pretty fancy) so I'm hoping to actually keep something I knit one of these days. We'll see. That's all for now!

I used Woolease in "wheat" color for the main part, but for the gray and orange accents I used some of the cheap mohair I bought from Target a few months ago. So soft!
Other than that, I've just been working a lot, which will continue into the next few days. I knit some fingerless gloves/wrist warmer type things today out of this old-as-hell crappy yarn that Delaine found in the storage closet at work. It's variegated red/white/brown and I think it's pretty, but since I just bought new fingerless gloves, I think I may give these ones to someone, but we'll see. The battery on my digicam is dead so I'll take a photo of them tomorrow.
I think that I need some sleep, so that's all for now. Goodnight!

Nothing special, but I used this pretty Riviera Multi yarn that I bought a few months ago. It's the variegated color, obviously, and it knits up beautifully. However I bought like eighteen skeins of it, so I'm trying to trade some of it. I don't see myself using nearly 2000 yards of it anytime soon. Ah well. The scarf itself is just a mix of knit stich, purl stitch, some ribbing sections, etc. I wanted it to be very patchwork looking and I think I accomplished that. Other than that, I've just been working a lot and trying to finish "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks. Excellent book. Oh and I'm making progress on the shawl I'm making for my mother. Here is how it looks so far...
I'm making it in three different sections and then just seaming the edges together. I'm about halfway done with this panel, so *shrugs* it'll get there. I'm not used to working on such big needles (I think these are size 16, I don't want to get up and look..) so it's hindering my process a little. Okay I think that's all for now. Later!

I have a few projects I'm working on for the red scarf project but I currently don't have photos, I'll try to take those tonight or tomorrow. Well that's all for now. Later.
