Knitting

Tonight I went to Stich'n'Bitch! It was so nice to sit and knit with other people who were also knitting!! My back is killing me (darn those stools and daddy's genes!) so next week I'll be bringing my own chair.

So I've finally gotten around to taking pictures of all my knitting WIPs. I also thought I'd post some pictures of what's at the top of my "must knit list".

We'll start with the WIPs:

^ This is the "Om Yoga Mat Bag" from S'n'B Nation. I've finished knitting it but when I went to seam up the side I somehow sewed up one side faster than the other. I got extremely frustrated with it and chucked it across the room but I think I'm just about ready to try it again.

Here's what it's supposed to look like when it's finished (except I cast on extra stitches so it would come up past the top of the mat):

^ This is the "Soft Drawstring Pouch" from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's my "on the go" project; I keep it in my bag and when I'm in the car, walking to the library, at the movies, or just need to keep my hands busy I work on it.

Here's what it'll look like:

^ This is my leftovers project. In a few years it'll be a huge blanket. I'm knitting it on US8 29" circular needles in garter stitch (yes I said circular needles, yes I'm knitting it in one piece, and yes I'm insane). Right now it's about 10" long

^ Here's a picture of what I was working on tonight at S'n'B. I was about half way through one side (it's knit in four pieces and than seamed together) but my edges were so tight I decided to frog it and start over. I'm going to make it with the same color as my yoga mat bag. It's from Bags: A Knitter's Dozen


Now for the top few of my huge must knit list:
I've been wanting a shawl for awhile...these are my favorites - they're both from Shawls and Scarves
