Writers Block

After sitting in front of a blank blogger screen for five minutes, I've decided to give the quick photo diary of latest knitting projects as well as saying I did survive my first day of school. More details to come as I give the crazy little ones a few days to calm down before complaining too much...

Here is a picture of my first scarf that I finished (this is the one that magically grew in width for quite a few inches before I sucked it up and ripped out what I could and started over) -- it's a little short but good for my first project:

Here's a picture of my current project -- a "muppet scarf" for my 10 year old niece for Christmas. I think she'll like it:

More projects to come with my new stash of yarn :)

You're turning into quite a good knitter. I think mom will be proud of your new project. :)

I love your blog. When ever I find a new message, I can't wait to see what's new, what's funny, and what is to come.

I am sssoooo proud of you, you little knitter you!!!!
Very good job on your first project.
I do like Kylie's muppet scarf.
She will love it.
I am working on a scarf and more booties.
I am dying to start a new project, but I have lessons to plan and papers to correct. . .
Hang in there with school; your little ones will improve.
