Odds, Ends & Goodies!

This is a photo-heavy blog. I've been knitting furiously lately due to several impending births and the Christmas holiday season. That said, I'll let the photos do most of the talking....

The most recent Christmas gift bowls:


The three bowl styles(Ginger, Mesa and Standing):


Three new baby hats:





A new baby blanket (this is nothing more than a giant dishcloth/168 stitches at longest point):



Finishing touches on Miss Chicken:




And now, the goodies! Dianne greatly surprised me with souvenirs/gifts from her trip to Pennsylvania (The Mannings yarn store). She brought me the beautiful chunky Mauch you see below, as well as the Andes sock yarn. Thank you so very, very much! I cannot wait to dive into them. Again, thank you, thank you!





And for Nikki & Marianne. Here's the eye candy hubby. :) LOL



P.S. Thing 1 and Thing 2 are going to my sister's home in Maryland this Monday for a week. Hmmm, what's a mother to do when a) she doesn't have to cook, b) pick up after kids, c) clean the bathroom, and d) launder six tons of clothing? I shall be soooo lost...NOT!

WOW..you are so awesome!!How do you do it?..It's all so very lovely..and the chicken..how artsy!!
I need to photograph my beautiful yarns from you and Linda...
Better still, I need to get busy and use it..but those yarns are so special that I want to be able to concentrate on each stitch..so I spend the time doing squares and dish cloths..it fascinates both Mom and her Roomie..to see finished dish cloths but both say..they're too pretty to use..lol..
Can't wait to see all the 'ahhs'..over your photos..and the special "Eye Candy"..Hugs..

What lovely yarn Dianne brought you! :) I can't wait to see what you decide to make with it...

the bowls are great! and I love the chicken!! I'm doing quite a bit of baby knitting myself. My nephew will be born the end of Sept.
