They Are Finished!!

I finished the second glove last night. The pattern was pretty easy to follow and total knitting time for each glove was about five days. Not too bad since it takes me months to knit a pair of socks! Of course I didn't knit much else during the time I was working on gloves. 

I did work on this market bag while we were being held captive on the plane last Thursday afternoon. It is for a friend of mine from The Scrap Room. I just need to get it in the mail.

I knitting this little baby sweater on my knitting machine. The pattern is really unique. You knit it all in one piece and then fold it to turn it into the sweater. The seams are at the top of the shoulders. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, it was just fun to knit. If you know of anyone who needs a baby sweater, let me know.

I also knit a blanket on the knitting machine. It is done in three pieces so I still need to sew them together. I think it will be a car blanket when it is finished. Now I just need to do another one so that both Melissa and I will have a blanket for the car.

Stitches Midwest is this weekend in Shaumburg. They have classes, a huge yarn market and lots of fun things going on. We are going on Friday afternoon to check out the market and see what we want to buy. We are going again on Sunday with the ladies from our knitting group. I'm sure we will come home with some nice yarn.

I can't even imagine knitting gloves. I'm going to have to take a knitting class or two. Your gloves look great along with everything else.
