time to knit...

After a non stop week of food, family and lots of fun, I'm finally able to show that I'm knitting. But first I'd like to thank the lovely Lolly for being such a wonderful host for the Socktober KAL. Although I have yet to finish my pair of socks. I've got one...

I was one the lucky winners of the Socktober goodies, and I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful skein of Mountain Colors yarn, perfect for another pair of socks, some lovely scented soap and a beautiful cooper bookmark.

I just love the pagoda detail. Thank you so much Lolly!

As for my knitting, I'm getting ready to start my second Socktober sock, but I've been a bit distracted my the Kristina bag. It's my first bit of multi stranded color work, and so far so good. but it's a bit wonky in places. Hopefully It'll all even out once it's felted.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish the Gryffindor scarf in time for the new Harry Potter movie, but I was able to knit before the movie started. The kids and I loved this movie and we're quite ready for Book 7 and Movie 5. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long.

Anyway I hope you have a wonderful week...Happy Knitting!

We went last night and I found myself looking at the closeups of Harry wearing his scarf so I could remember the pattern and gaps between colours. There is no hope for knitters!

The Kristina bag looks brilliant! I love the colorwork.

Waiting for the next Harry fix will be hard -- we were spoiled this year with the book AND the movie! ;)

SO glad you liked the gifties!
