Project Linus Blanket

I started this two years ago, and I decided it just had to get done.

Project Linus in Red Heart!

This is taken without the flash so you can see the texture.

Project Linus 8/7/07

This is an early picture of the project that shows the true color and stitch definition.

I used - sitting down? - Red Heart!! I still of a ton of that plastic crap in my stash. At least it's done. God, it felt awful knitting with that stuff. The pattern is from Knitting for Peace, and excellent resource for charity knitters.

Goldilocks Market Bag

Bernat Market Bag

I started this bag three times. The first one was too small. The second one was too big. The third one was just right. I'm really happy with the outcome and I've used a big chunk of my worsted cotton stash. The yarn is Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Ombres & Prints, 470 yard skien. Colorway is Meadow. I used the ballband pattern, modified heavily, of course.

This pattern is from Little Box of Socks by Charlene Schurch and Beth Parrot. Easy pattern to remember and a quick knit.

Saturday Night Movie

Here you go - parody of Nickelback's Rockstar (my current ringtone 'cause it's awesome!).
