A few knitfull nights

Since Robin was at the school firing for most of this past weekend, I set myself up with a few knitting projects and now I'm an addict. I finished the toque for Bobby (for a pottery trade) in just two days, then I jumped right into a pair of baby socks for Took. 

Friday night I spent the entire evening on the couch, with the phone tucked into my left ear, gabbing away with friends back home and the klackity klack of my knitting needles as background noise.

Saturday and Sunday were more of the same, although I continued my knitting frenzy during daylight hours. Isla had to even remind me at one point that it was time for me to make her lunch and that I should put my knitting down. ACK!  

I brought along a big bagful of yarn when we moved down to Utah. Various skeins, some full and others just remnants that I figured I could turn into something at some point. So now I'm frugally trying to come up with knitting projects that I can utilize all my tag-along wool. Truthfully, all I really want to do is head down to the knitting store and buy copious amounts of new yarn, but I have to excercise some restraint. Christmas is coming afterall.   P.S. Everyone is getting knits for Christmas.
