Stops and Starts and More

I finished Barb and Chauntel's hats and one of Carly's gloves for their trip to Chicago in a couple of weeks.

Then I found this book at Michael's one day while I was waiting to meet friends for lunch.

Which lead to these projects that are knit then felted.   The gray tubes will become holders for double pointed knitting needles...and knitted hearts will become felted hearts.  I'm way ahead for Valentines Day 2012 !!

And those projects lead to this so I can make lots more needle cases and hearts of every color to my hearts content.

Then a friend showed me this book which I quickly ordered....

...that lead to this..... this to DIE for or what?  And my good friends who are with me every minute of every day....

Jaxon and Casanova

And pretty Belle (anxiously awaiting dinner...can you tell just how underfed she is??)

And so it goes.  I've been stitching on the Blackbird Design stocking series and only have 2 left to stitch!!  Wahooo....they'll be pictured in my next post!

Thanks for stopping 'buy'.  I can only imagine what Nashville Market releases will appear in the mail box!!

Great projects Cari but I didn't see my socks in the picture! LOL

Ya, that cat is starving to death! Better hurry up and put food in that bowl before something awful happens!

Siobhan said...

Cari, clearly you are neglecting your poor cat!! LOL All three are adorable.

Great job on the knitting! You are a knitting and BBD stocking MACHINE! I can't wait to see the stockings.

OMG! All that yarn!!!! so yummy! Love the hats and gloves! You are a knitter extraordinaire! Great hearts and knitting needle tubes! So cool!

Love the kitty pics too! Isn't it amazing how much we love our kitties? The one of Belle cracks me up! I have the same problem with Mia. She still insists on being fed 3 or 4 times a day -- a kitten feeding schedule. I need to break her of this habit somehow. lol!

Wow! I am dying over the beautiful colors. Those gloves are adorable too. How lucky your nieces are! Your cats just crack me up. I bet they take as much of your time as my kids do mine. LOL!
Hugs to you.

I am so lucky, my shop owner came for lunch yesterday and brought my market order to me ;-).

Love your kitties, my two puppies are right there for all my projects too, LOL.

You have been SO busy, Miss Cari! Love the knit hats and gloves and all your new yarn is glorious! Love the ruffled wrist warmers on the cover of the first book you showed - I SO learn to knit!

Your kitty kats are so pretty (and well fed, I might add!).
