Progress is my middle name

ok folks look what I got going on here:

So this is a fairly easy pattern- that is the Cabled Comfort throw (on my previous post). Its just going to be tedious. And yes, Duh- I should have used circulars so I can do this throw in one piece. Lord knows how it will be stitching these panels together- I suck at it LOL :)

Cable Comfort Throw

So now that I have finished the Mita, I've got something else going on..... of course *wink* Now I am working on the Cable Comfort Throw by Lion Brand Yarn online . But, I am doing it as a Bridal Afghan for my cousin Lisa- She is getting married on June 7th and her Bridal shower is on May 24th. so I gotta get cracking on this one :) I can do it though I swear. Instead of using the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, I am using Red Heart Grande. Cheaper, folks! Gotta love that!

I will definitely update as to my progress and this one I know will take me a while, but I can do it! Gotta love a positive can-do attitude!!!!!!!!!

Knit on folks!

Mita by Berocco

So I have been working on the Mita Bag by Berocco. The pattern can be found here: It is really cute! I am hoping to have it done by Saturday for my niece. It was her birthday this past Sunday and I'll see her on Saturday so I want to be able to give it to her. I have to finisht he second side of the bag and sew the handles on (which I have) so it shouldn't be too bad. The pattern calls for a Berocco ribbon yarn, but I had two skeins of Lion Brand Incredible in my stash so I was glad to be able to use it! Awesome! Stash-busting is pretty cool :)

I went to the dollar store yesterday and I found two skeins of Red Heart Symphony in persimmon- pretty cute color. It is a worsted weight mohair looking acrylic yarn. Now, the big question is, what to do with it? hmmmmm?
