This is 2 of 3 of a set the I am making for my sister. I just finished the Wrist Warmers last night and the hat a couple days ago. I used Wool-Ease Worsted Weight in White Multi 301. I used not even a 2.5 oz ball for the hat and then not even a 2.5 oz ball for the wrist warmers. The hat pattern comes out of Stitch 'N Bitch Nation it's the Basic Cable hat. And the wrist warmers are from the Irish Hiking Scarf KAL blog. I am still working on the scarf.

Cool Needles

I was reading Major Knitter's blog, and she had an entry about knitting needles that have lighted tips for knitting in the dark! I went to her link to the article in the New York Times to check them out, and I think they are just too cool! Here is where you can buy a pair if your own. I could have sworn that I saw something similar on Ebay, so I did a search for lighted knitting needles and found this. They even have crochet hooks people! How cool is that! These things seriously remind me of Light Sabers!! Haha! Can you imagine the comments you would get knitting or crocheting with those. May the force be with you...

Drop Stitch Bangel Belt Pattern

Image Hosted by

Here is the pattern for now...

Use size 7 K knitting needle
1 ball Judi & Co. Hand-Painted Groovy Yarn
2 metal rings

BANGLE ROW k1,SB,k3,SB,k3,SB,k3,SB,k3
SB means slip a bangle up to the needle

String bangles (the number of bangles would depend on the lenght of your belt.)
Cast on 13 sts (supersticious?? haha!)
K 6 rows (this is the part that will fold over the metal rings
*Bangle row
K 3 rows
K1, yo 2 times to last stitch, K1
K 1 drop yo to last stitch, K1
K 4 rows *

Repeat from * until the belt is as long as you want it. Remember the end will be woven through the rings so you might want to stop adding the bangles at that point.Fold the first six rows over the ring and sew with thread. You can crochet around the rings like this belt or leave them plain.

Now for the bragging! The belt in the picture was knit by one of my incredible students, Marlynn! She described a belt she had seen, I wrote this pattern just for her, and we are sharing it with you. Marlynn I am so proud of you!!

Tennessee, Tennessee Ain't No Place I'd Rather Be

I can't wait to see who gets that song reference!! Rob and I are going to the Nashville area this weekend, and I am going to meet one of my online knit blogging friends! How cool is that! Another cool thing is that the flight is freeeeee! Yay! I finally have my flight benefits, and I'm going to try them on for size. I am going sans knitting/crocheting due to the whirlwind nature of the trip.

Things are still crazy here, and I'm still running around like a chicken with it's head chopped off. I can't wait untill it all settles down. That will be a beautiful thing. Hopefully I will find more time to take better care of this blog! I owe you pictures! I owe you a pattern! Hmm maybe I can pull of the pattern...
