updates?

I haven't really had anything to post lately...well, I have, but I'm lazy ;)
I hope the new year has been good to everyone so far. I had a blast at our
party!

I picked out the sweater pattern for my first sweater! It's from the "the
knitter's handy book of sweater patterns". I chose a seamless yoke pattern
that has a cables around the neckline. It's basically knit in one solid
piece for the body with the sleeves joined, so there are no seams! I'm
excited about it. I spent a good part of last week measuring, calculating
and doing a little victory dance when I found out I do have enough yarn to
make it :) If I have time before bed, I'll post a pic of the pattern with
the yarn...

I've started another scarf for one of my mom's friends, and I have one more
to do after that. Hopefully after that I will be done with the scarves for
mom. I did join a scarf exchange with an online crochet group I belong to as
well. AND I just picked up some yummy tye-dye type yarn for myself, but I
don't think I want to make a scarf with it anymore...I'm sure I'll find a
use for it :) And did I mention I picked up the dredlock bag again? All I
have left is the dreds, but I'm only about 1/4 done with them and I have a
LOT more to do...It will be so cool when I'm done, but I don't think I'll
want to do anymore I-cords for a long time! I plan on turning it into a
camera bag for my new digital, but we'll see how it looks after felting.
