My wrists, MY WRISTS!!!

My wrists hurt! Yes, it's because of knitting too much. The last weekend was nice, Andrew and I watched a movie, did a bit grocery shopping and the rest of the time, he fixed the computer, watched tv. And I did some laundry and knitted!!! I spent more time with yarn than my husband... I have been knitting several things. First, since I still have 1.3 hanks of Malabrigo Silky Merino, I have decided to knit a scarf to go with it. At first, I wanted to knit the Liesel scraf again (the last one I made was so pretty that I gave it to my best friend), but the pattern didn't really come out nicely with the hand-painted yarn, so I ripped it.

Then I modified the Foliage hat pattern to become a scarf. But after I have written the whole pattern in half an hour, I went to Raverly and found the exact pattern!!! Oh well, I did have fun making up the pattern though.

Last week, the co-work, who just had a baby couple months ago and I knitted him a pair of baby booties, told me that mittens would be great to have now... So, I knitted a pair of mittens with the leftover yarn from the booties. However, I ran out of yarn when I started to decrease the second mitten, so close. So I went to buy one more skein. Of course I finished the mitten, I still have 0.95 skein of yarn left. So, I knitted a hat also. However(again) the hat is way too small for the baby!!! Doh. If you know anyone just have a baby boy, please let me know, I have a give for him.

What else? Oh, I picked up the Cable-Down Raglan again. Since I have put it again for a while, I forgot where I left off and how to read that pattern. First of all, it has 2 errors in the pattern, which I had to read and read and read so many times to understand it(I guess I am dumb). Then After I knitted one row, it just didn't make sense to me how it looked. So, I frogged it and knitted it again from the very beginning. Honestly, I love the pattern and the look of the cables, but I am getting tired of cabling. I also love the yarn, it's Misti International Pima Cotton/Silk, yum...

Oh, I want to thank Rebecca for giving me some Zephyr lace yarn and Knelleyfor giving me some Fun Fur last week at SnB.

Also, I want to show you a picture of me at work on Monday. Don't ask what I was doing, sorry, can't tell... :D

At last, I saw people are having so much fun in their blogs for doing this, and here is mine...
