  1. Fuzzy Feet for Cheryl and Michael — DONE
    Fuzzy FeetMy cousin Cheryl is getting married Labor Day week-end so my mother and I are throwing a shower for her this week-end. I knit two pairs of Fuzzy Feet for them in the same colors. I will give them the felting directions so that they can custom fit them! I am thinking about a tin of really nice hot cocoa to go with them with a note about frosty Chicago mornings. Any other suggestions about something small to go with these?
  2. Small Box for Marni — knitted, still needs felting
    Marni's Box My other cousin, the sister of the one being married, is having a birthday. I made the small box from the Mason Dixon Book for her. I’m not all that thrilled with how it looks and I am hoping it’s trip through the washing machine improves it! I think I’ll buy a pair of earrings from Melissa (a cousin on the other side) to stick in there in case the box still looks strange! Also, what was I thinking on the colors? The whole Christmas thing didn’t hit me till I was too far in to change.
  3. Buttonhole Bag for Mary — knitted still needs felting
    Mary's bag While in Maine I stayed with Mary who just happens to have a July birthday. I took her to Halcyon and had her pick out the colors for her Buttonhole Bag. After not knitting these for a while I forgot how fun and quick they are to knit. I think this one will be really cute when felted. Since she picked out the colors I don’t feel a need to include anything with this gift!
  4. Stripey Socks — my first socks ever are still in progress, I’m almost to my arch!
  5. Birch — oh yeah, really need to get back to that
  6. Avery for Bunny — well, he wouldn’t wear it in the summer anyway!

I’m thinking pretty seriously about ordering the Knitpick’s Options needles. They look nice and the reviews seem good. I just can’t understand why they don’t have double points in bigger sizes. Is there some trick I’m missing?

Finally, there’s a Barnes and Noble gift card burning a whole in my pocket. Big Girl Knits is certainly on the list but I’m looking for suggestions. What’s your favorite knitting book?


  1. I personally am enjoying the bood by Leigh Radford, Oneskein. As it seems you are enjoying Mason Dixon Knitting, I think you will also like Oneskein.

  4. Fuzzy feet and cocoa… how about a couple of mugs to go with that? You could roll up the ffs and put them inside the mugs. It’s a warm kit! (They look great, btw.)

  5. Check out what Grumperina has to say about the needles. Don’t know if it will sway you or not, but she’s so methodical, it’s worth a look! It was her most recent post, I think.
