A Little Bit of This A Little Bit of That

As I sit here tonight looking for pictures to add to the post, all of a sudden I am off looking at something in my favorites on Ravelry, which makes me want to cast on a myriad of things!  There are so many cool things to knit on and I already have so many on the needles.  I am just a knitting fool these days.

One of the guys at work today asked me what I had going on this weekend.  I told him about the baby shower that is going on tomorrow and how on Sunday, if the weather turns foul and icey that I would just be home, probably doing laundry and watching a couple of movies.  He knowing that I was a knitter, made the universal sign for knitting (two hands moving quickly), and said that I would probably have plenty to keep me busy if I was confined to the house during an icey could he have known?  Anyway...

 Isn't this a great pattern?!  It is a free pattern by A knitsofacto design.  She has a super cute free baby sweater pattern that I might just have to knit up for my niece's baby for later this spring.  But, I digress.  I can so see this with my gray wool coat.

I'm not normally a hat kind of person, but this one really called to me.

I was pretty sure that Knit 4 Together had some yarn that would work for it, and sure enough, they did not let me down on this one.

 I worked on my peapod last night out at the shop.  It is the perfect kind of pattern to knit when you are in a crowd.  Too bad I didn't bring the second ball of yarn, or I might have been closer to being finished with it.  This baby is not due for a while, but I would like to get it done and give it to the Grandma to be  so they have it in time for the newborn in March.

One of the ladies at the knit shop has been working on this throw recently.  I was up close and personal to it and I love it.  I think I need one for our house, but not this year though, it will have to wait until the Fall.

What can I say?  I have become addicted to buying project bags.  I'm okay with that, but one can always use more, hint hint.

I love etsy!
