New Knitting place

Having the hardest time finding a place for our knitting group to meet. GRRRR it is SO frustrating. Though we found the perfect place tonight but the owners wanted to close up early because they were tired :PPP

Knitting block

  So last night I had knitter's block. I looked through every book and pattern I owned looking for inspiration, nothing felt right. So I turn to Ravelry for help. So many patterns !!! What is a knitter to do?? After a couple of hours in pattern heaven I decided that what I wanted to knit was a hat. So I found this cutie. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Drop Stitch Scarf

Originally uploaded by tishknits
This is one of my WIPs (work in progress) This beautiful 100% silk yarn started out as a small stockinette scarf. But half way through, it decided it didn't want to be that. So I frogged it and went on a pattern hunt. One of the many pleasures of being a knitter is the hunt for a fun pattern. I stumbled on this scarf from I love it, and so does the yarn :) So I am off to knit my pretty pretty scarf.

Snow Day Knits

Originally uploaded by tishknits
I am working on 2 different knits today. Yes at the same time. My attention span leaves something to be desired LOL. The purple one is a the second sock of a pair that I am knitting for my grandmother. Very pretty socks, but very time consuming !!! The teal is the first of a pair of wristlets that I am knitting for Lainey. I will post a pic of both when they are done. Both should be wonderfully cute.

Then to Zaza's for some lunch and knitting time. Have no fear I have lots of pics to share :) I will upload those in the upcoming post !

Ah Ha Moment

I was trying to figure out how to get a picture from my phone to my blog using the LEAST number of steps. Yes, I am that lazy LOL After a little googling I found that Flickr has an app (of course) and I can use it to upload directly to my blog WOOHOO
