I'm still trying to dig out from underneath items for swaps before I can start a project for me......I am wildly knitting to get everything sent out so that I can get started on a lace project for myself. Hopefully by the end of the week, I will have everything done.

Almost done.....one scarf to go and a couple dishcloths to go. Maybe by this weekend I will be good to go on something for me. :)

My Project

I've decided to sew a roll for my knitting things. I haven't sewn in a very, very long time. I've decided to just try and make up the pattern as I go. I just wasn't able to find anything online that didn't look too difficult for my limited sewing skills. This should be interesting.

This is my first post to the unswap blog. I'm glad to be a part of this. I will post in my blog tomorrow what I am working on and why. Thanks for coming up with this. :)

The Gold Dust Shawl

I finally did it! I cast on a project just for me! I call it the Gold Dust Shawl because it is knit with Wool in the Woods Gold Dust Lottery colorway in purple/pinks.

The yarn started off a bit tricky but after finally settling on a pattern I like and getting comfortable with the needles, it has been going pretty well and I have the pattern pretty much memorized already.

My one "me" sticking point is going to be when I go to block it because I really don't have a place to block her at my home without one of my children interrupting its rest. So I will most likely have to do it at my Mom's house and therefore she might get stolen by Mom. I am open to sharing with Mom but, I am not gifting her to Mom. This is supposed to be for me.

The Best Idea!!!

This is the BEST idea ever for me! I don't think I have ever made anything for myself that hasn't been swiped by my Mom or my daughters (they are 4 and 6 btw)

I had actually decided already to make a One Skein Shawl (I selected different yarn because of a wool allergy) just for myself. My Mom says she is stealing it but, I don't think so!! The needles I needed just arrived today so, all I need to do is finish off a project for my 6 year old and I should be good to go, I think.

I know at some point it will get pushed aside so a little while but, it is just for me so I plan on keeping on working on it and this blog is going to help me do just that!!

Best Swap Idea Ever!

OK, I think this is great...although I love, love, love spoiling others...it will be very nice to pick something to create for ....me. :) Details on what I choose are to follow in the next few days...could it be a felted bag? pair of socks? not sure yet...but I'll let you know! :)
