I knit something for me...

Yes, I needed a break from the Christmas knitting, so I whipped up something quick and fun for ME! My sweet friend (who I will meet in person for the first time EVAH in 15 DAYS!!! WOOOOOOHOOOO!), Plucky Sarah sent me some yummy yarn from FeltStudio UK and I had to knit with it. Amazing stuff. I can't believe all these different textures of yarn are all spun into one gorgeous skein.

(Modeling in the 90 degree AZ heat....this is the last time you will see long curls...chop, chop tomorrow!)

(I adore these colors!)

(How hard is it to take a picture of yourself? VERY. I resorted to the mirror...complete with spots...to give you an idea of how long it is with it wrapped around my neck twice)

Basic Recipe:
Cast on how many ever stitches you want it to be width-wise...I think I did about 13
Knit garter stitch on size 19 needles (I felt like I was knitting with friggin' salad spoons!)
Knit until you have enough yarn to bind off. Bind off loosely.

All I've been doing lately is super secret Christmas knitting. I did needle felt for the first time last weekend but I need to perfect the thing because it looks more like an orange than a pumpkin. Pics in a few days.

Have a super weekend!
