In my very first post for this blog, I mentioned that I sometimes have a short attention span when it comes to projects – – – that I can be fickle – and that my projects are often random. Well, I haven’t changed much since then! lol If you remember, I had planned on finishing the circular throw (among other things). Well a certain someone told me what a WONDERFUL pillow this would make and how MUCH they would LOVE to have such a WONDERFUL pillow – what a WONDERFUL surprise it would be ….. you getting the idea? Soooooo…. MY circular throw is a PILLOW! I now need to start ANOTHER one for me. I have also recently mentioned that I was casting on my fingerless gloves, yup I did, and wanna know how far I’ve come along on those? they are CAST ON! So in light of all of this, I left my cast on fingerless gloves, my not yet cast on Fuzzy Feet, my now non-existent circular throw and my bottomless babe and made THIS, actually TWO of them (bodies that is, they are not finished….. naturally ;))!
I made the one on the left first – it was some kind of fuzzy yarn that got really fuzzy where the dpn’s changed – not sure I like the striped look. So I had some of this loopy yarn (I think they were both Reynolds – I got them at the warehouse last year for mittens), but I don’t know what the name is. I am enjoying making this little guy as it moves along quickly – I made both bodies in less than an hour and I’m not a superfast knitter by any stretch of the imagination. So there you have it, I am fickle!
Now for a quick note….. I just thought I’d let whoever happens upon this blog know that Lisa has started a Knit-a-long called “Naked Stix by 2006” to finish up all the WIP’s we all have going – – which means it’s time for me to take stock and start counting! ugh!. Check it out if you have time!
