    Love the set vickilynn! The color is just gorgeous, she will love it. I am glad you were able to wrap another gift. What's next for you?

    DC - I'm using my homestead challenge to knit real heels to also be a Christmas gift...socks for my hubby. And reading how fast YM knits, I'm teaching myself to knit conteniental because it's faster....it feels odd at first, but then knitting did too.....

    Ugh! I haven't worked on anything since Monday. I'm going to try to get a lot done this weekend on the clutch purse I'm knitting. I'm thinking that I'll also start the fingerless gloves for my Mom if I have needles available for it.

    Yes YM does have bionic fingers when it comes to knitting. It takes me a half an hour to do one rotation on the dpn's!

    Welcom iida! What's your first project?

    DC - I discovered my knitting spend depends on what's going on...I go slow then speed up then slower..... dh would say that's the way I drive..hahahha

    But I'm back to knitting with the yarn in my right hand,,,,, cause I like it that way! Enjoy the process right?

    My speed is in the super slow lane..... The lane where the little old ladies and little old men go for a Sunday drive.

    Doesn't matter how fast you knit, just as long as you get there!! Now driving, that may be another matter. I tend to knit fast - helps regulate my tension better!!

    I knit rather slowly I think and didn't get as much done yesterday as I wanted because the yarn was tangled up. I stopped knitting to rewind it into a ball and it took forever! I know some people wind the skein into a ball before they start, but I never do that. Perhaps I should start!?

    Valerian, I never do... unless the yarn is tangled on the inside. Even then, sometimes I just deal with the tangles! To me, there is nothing worse (aside from ripping out a project) than winding yarn

    I finally FINISHED something! It's just a water-bottle cozy carrier thingie, but it's a gift, and it's actually meant for someone . It's not an entire gift, as I will have to give something else with it (maybe I will buy her one of those metal water bottles?) but the stitching part's done. She drinks nothing but water, and lots of it, so she's always carrying around a water bottle. I saw the pattern and thought of her.
    Now on to my next project - a crocheted wrap for my sis-in-law.

    I did attempt a pair of slippers, but my gauge is off, and I can't seem to fix it. My stitches (in crochet) are taller than they are wide, and it causes all sorts of problems on patterns that require your gauge to be spot on. For things like sweaters and wraps it doesn't matter because they say "continue in pattern for 10 inches" or whatever, but for things like slippers, the pattern is exact and my gauge is off
