My booga bag is now blocking. I don't think I am going to have enough I-cord for the handle. I'm not sure what to do about that.

Isn't my Camden... something.

Isn't my Sierra lovely?

These are the first two sets of straight knitting needles I have completed.

This is the oak set. They are US 10 (6.5mm) that are 12 inches long.

This set is birch. They are US 3 (3.25mm) and are 10 inches long.

This is a top view of the ends of the size 3 needles. They are handmade natasha beads.

I'm planning on trying to sell them on ebay to see how they do. I'll let you know how it turns out.

La Ti Da

My Buster bought these for me at a LYS in Denver called LaTiDa. I love that he went to a yarn store for me while he was out of town. He said it was pretty cool. He bought gifts for our girlies while there too. Posted by Hello

The left is a dark green Filati Bertagna called Mongolia. It is 92% merino wool and 8% nylon. The right is novelty yarn from Plymouth called Galaxia. It is 100% nylon. It's basically a tiny thin string with brightly colored evenly spaced and sized slub type things. I just have the one ball of each so any suggestions are welcome.

Here is the yarn michael helped me dye last week with kool-aid. The colors are cherry, orange, lemonade (which took twice as many packets), lemonlime, blue raspberry lemonade and then berry blue to make it darker, and grape. Posted by Hello

I dyed Patons Classic Wool Merino. I used two skeins which I broke up into easier to use lengths before dying. The microwave makes koolaid dying so easy.

The band for Coronet done in Lamb's Pride Bulky that I dyed with koolaid in Cherry, Strawberry kiwi, and orange. This is my first attempt at a cable and it's going pretty well I think. Posted by Hello

This is a close up of knitty's coronet. The color didn't come out all that well but I think you can see the detail of the cable, I hope. Posted by Hello
