Okay, enough teasing. Here is the picture of the mysterious triangle put together. It is supposed to be a diamond...tilt your head to the side to see I am working on the Celtic poncho/sweater lately. I have to knit 72 triangles for the basic piece...I have 30. woohoo. I figured I better get moving on it or another fall/winter will go by and I still won't have finished it. I am still slogging along on A's other sweater and finished the front left section last night during the Spurs-Jazz game....booo! Too bad they lost. Since I don't have cable, just regular t.v. I only get to see 1 or 2 games and I really want to see my team win. I am sure they will go to the playoffs though.

Non-knitting picture content! I also rubberstamp and do alot of mixed media pieces. This is a piece that I did for a "challenge" that a group of us "played" together. The challenge was that you got a bag of all kinds of stuff and had to make something using at least half of the things in the bag. This is mine. I enjoyed making it and probably will do some of the techniques again on something else.

Just read this on the and decided to play. Anyone that wants to be tagged you're it!

7 Random Things about Me:

1.I can't stand my hair down or on my face--it must be "scraped" back in a ponytail, no matter how severe it looks. Can't stand little flyaway bits and pieces.

2.Even though I really like coffee (hot and black), I almost always drink hot tea at home.

3.When I'm concentrating on something-like putting something together (like a vaccuum) I always have my tongue sticking out.

4.I like to fall asleep with the light on.

5.If I can't fall asleep I listen to the soundtrack from "The Blue Lagoon"...don't judge me...out like a light.

6.When I'm knitting for myself I will leave some mistakes but if it's for someone else I will tear it out and restart or go to before the mistake.

7.I love basketball...NBA. GO SPURS!!! I don't play any sports and only watch basketball and golf.

Here is the sweater that I finished this week. Yah! good for me. Actually it has sleeves but A. stopped by and had her camera so I grabbed it up and snapped the picture. I think it came out really well.

I have also managed to work through some lace patterns and obviously it was just me and not the patterns. heehee. I also am finishing sewing together my felted satchel andmade some really cool knitted flowers to sew on the flap. I used the same wool that I used to knit the bag and I hand-felted them in the sink. They are more "fulled" than felted but look really nice. I will try and get a picture of it next week.

FINALLY!! I think that I have broken the "lace" pattern block...I have managed to make a dishcloth in the Baby Fern pattern and it's doing really well.

This is something that I've been working on ...and off...and on ... for the past year. It doesn't look like anything now but the next picture will show more of what it will be when it "grows up". I have put it aside to work on various other things...mostly for other people. As if it makes it alright for it to be languishing in it's bag because they were things for other people. It watches me reproachfully as I go blithely past to pick up some other knitting and creep back by it as if it doesn't know I'm ignoring it. But...this is the only ufo I have...well, the crocheted afghan is still a work in progress but that doesn't count because it's not knitting. Well, and the sock, but I have worked on it some. I am almost finished knitting on the sleeve and then put it together and that's done. And then I will work on the above piece.

I cannot get the lace patterns correct for the washcloths for anything. I thought maybe the pattern was wrong but I tried another and it's obviously me. I guess I will have to go to the knitting group at Barnes and Noble on Tuesday. How sad...heehee.
