I need to do an update on my ADVENTure progress, but I don’t have much to share since last month because I was busy with this . . .
Spring Garden Tee by Alana Dakos
Size 32 :: Needles #5 :: Yarn Naturally Caron Spa, 2.5 balls::
This is the first pattern of Alana’s I’ve tried (love them all though) and I would definitely knit it again. I love knitting in the round with no seams :-) In fact I’m already thinking of making another one in a different color for myself, and using a different yarn. The yarn was ok, but I’d like a ‘nicer quality’ one if I do it again.
As you can see from the pictures it was rather bright outside when I took them! So, do I knit another one OR do I get on with some ADVENTure knitting for Christmas gifts? Decisions, decisions!!!!

I may still post FO's and Wips here from time to time, but if you want to follow along with me on my 'daily journal' come on over HERE and say hi :-)
I'll still be keeping this blog up and running, if for nothing else so that I can visit you from my blogroll list. Feel free to comment here still or over at my daily blog. I will see both :)
I've knit Alana's pretty Spring Garden Tee and just need to take modeled shots of it. You can see some details on my Ravelry page here.

I’m joining in with Kristyn this year as she journeys on an ADVENTure to make all of her Christmas gifts. Mine will mostly be hand knit.
So far, I have a Juliet Scarf, Bella Mittens, Ruffled Scarf, and a cowl (will make matching mittens). I have other items that need to be finished off, but this month I started working on this… I think this little turtle hot water bottle cover is the cutest thing. I may make more than one. I’ve done the back and this is the front. I was reading a lot this month so didn’t get too much knitting done. I’ve also made a beanie hat and 1 (yes, just one) fingerless glove for Kristen’s friend. Once I get the other mitten knit I’ll take a picture.
I also started on this little guy. . . .
right now he is a 3 legged puppy! You’d think I would just get on and do the last leg! For some reason, I always want to knit toys, but once I get started I don’t enjoy the process of knitting so many ‘parts’! There’s not even than many parts to the ‘wrap me up puppy’ by Susan Anderson, but I am still putting off knitting the leg. Also this was knit on size #4 dpns cos I didn’t have size 3. The stitching is a bit loose I think. I have now bought the size 3’s so at some point I will try another one. This one already has Kristen’s name on it!
What I’d like to work on next is getting some gift cards made!

LOOK! I finally got hubby to help me take some modeled shots of McCafferty! I loved knitting this. Lily, it is a beautiful pattern:-) I’d love to try it with different weight yarns.
I used KnitPicks Palette, in color Fawn. Only took 3 balls!
Hubby started getting ‘snap happy’ with the camera!
Yup, that’s a thread hanging (above pic) I haven’t woven in the ends yet!
Now, it’s back to some GIFT knitting!
