Ravenclawified yes.

I finally finished my Ravenclaw scarf. I'd been wearing it for a few weeks now, but last night and today I finally weaved in the ends and added the tassel fringe stuff. It makes it look a lot better. It is very warm and I am pleased with it. Too bad it's supposed to be seventy degrees tomorrow. Better pictures later maybe. My camera is in North Carolina with my dad so I have to use my sister's and hers isn't as good as mine.

Hey kids

Okay. I've got an almost FO! All the knitting on my Ravenclaw scarf has been completed. I still have to weave in the ends and add the fringe stuff, but I've been wearing it anyway. It's warm. And nice. I will take pictures when it's finished.

And my goodness I still haven't put up any pictures of boy's socks. They are very much done and given to boy. He wears them, I think. Well he must because they've been washed. I'm glad they didn't fall to pieces in the wash, that always worries me.

A while back I started the Branching Out scarf and here's a picture of what the lace looks like so far.

I haven't been working on it as much though, because I've started a new project! The Hug from magknits. It's basically sleeves. I needed my 10.5 needles from the Harry Potter scarf, so that's why it got done so quickly. I'm using some yarn from the stash I got from Bea. I have no idea what it is. It's black, stretchy, kind of oily, and kind of glittery. So we'll see. My gauge is a bit off but I hope that's just cause I am using a rib pattern.

Oh gosh so much updating. I also went to Hobby Lobby this weekend and bought a basket thing to hold all my knitting crap in so it's not strewn across my bedroom floor. It's ugly, but works well and was half off. I'll get pictures of that too sometime.

Okay I think that's all. For now.

Well. I've got no pictures for you today, but lots of updates. I worked on three seperate projects on Thursday, it was a good day.

Harry Potter scarf: Coming along. Okay no I lied, I'm only like three rows from where I was a million weeks ago. And it's 60 degrees today so I'm never going to get to wear it this winter. Oh well.

Socks: Almost done with the second one. I'm just knitting up the foot and it's taking a while. I did most of the heel and everything yesterday. I'm also getting low on yarn so it's good that I grabbed the other skein from Bea.

New project: It's a scarf. Ha. It's this one. I'm using this thin blue stuff that I got from Bea. The label looks old and I really have no idea what it is, but it's turning out nicely. I'll put up pictures sometime.

That's it for now. But those ipod/camera cases are going straight on the dpns once I'm done with the socks.

This is a happy post. First off, I finished my first sock! Sock as in singular as in I still have to knit another one. But still I'm pretty proud of myself.

This is a picture of my wearing it. I'll take some pictures of boy wearing them when I get the other one done.

I still have to block it though I guess and I don't know how to do that.

Also! This lady I work with, Bea, is a knitter and she had a whole ton of yarn that was just going to donate somewhere and so she let me pick out as much as I wanted. For free!

It would've taken me ages to accumlate this much yarn. I am so appreciative. Soooo exciting. Now I just have to find somewhere to put it all. I need a basket or something for my room.
