Extreme knitting

About a year ago I was in a very artistic mood and I came up with the idea of using arms as knitting needles. Surprisingly, it actually works. I was playing around with it again today, and in about 2 hours I knit this:

I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it kinda looks like a badminton net or a fishing net. What ever it is though, it sure is cool......

GrumbleKnits has a new pattern!

Lorrie is a cute little scarf perfect for those pretty skeins of sock yarn that are to beautiful to hide in your shoes. It is a very quick and easy knit and would make a good last minute gift. See it on ravelry here or the PDF here.

things that make me happy

Do you know what makes me happy? Finishing a sweater in under 24 hours.

Ok, it has short sleeves but it's still a sweater. And a nice one at that. Now for another thing that makes me happy: big boxes from knit picks.
I got 10 skeins of Wool of the Andes bulky, 7 balls of Palette and A zephyr interchangeable needle set. Very exciting.
