Baby Norgi


is the main reason I haven't been posting lately! The baby shower is on the 5th, so I have 1 week to finish it. I'm in the home stretch now, so it *shouldn't* be a problem...

Whew. I have to finish the sleeve, cut the steeks, and finish the neck.

When my hands can't take the size 0 and 1 needles, I work on my Hand-to-Hand:

Nice thick wool and size 9 circulars. :-) I'm into the decreases on the sleeve now. I *think* I'm going to make a coat (the purple yarn is where I'm going to take the yoke apart when I steek the body). That's a yardstick next to it, not a ruler. :-)

Unidentified loom

Can anybody help? I am not a weaver, but I'd like to learn. What is this loom missing?? It was a gift, and I'd love to learn to weave, but it seems to be missing some parts. Unfortunately, I have no idea what they might be. :-) It has no identifying marks on it whatsoever.

WIPs are taking over!

Criminy, I need to knit faster, or something! Right now I have on the needles:

Hand-to-Hand Sweater - Highland Wool
Pi Shawl - Naturespun fingering
mobious (sp?) scarf - black alpaca
2 different socks
a pair of gloves

Yesterday (snow day! Woohoo!) I cast on Baby Norgi in jaggerspun superwash wool and two different colors of sock yarns (green and brown) This is for my soon-to-be grand-nephew (due in March). The shower is February 5, and this is knit on size 0 and 1 circulars! Yikes! All other projects just came to a screeching halt until I get this done - this is going veeerrrryyy sloooowwwwwllly. I'm normally a fast knitter, so this particular project is driving me nuts already.
