Trials & Tribs of the Bloggin' Knitter

I'm back after being MIA for a whole week. We left AOL, deleted their many files in my computer and entered the unknown world of att on dialup. Nope, we can't have dsl here.
See, you just can't have it all, evidently. Ah well.
We're in the bathroom today, Y'all. :) Excuse me (punny, huh), but isn't this the cutest soap bag you ever saw? The pattern is a free one offered by blogger friend Melanie. Check out her free patterns at Lil Knit of This & That. I knitted this little bag on a long circular via the magic loop method.
In the kitchen's cozy in here, too. Speakin' of cozy; I, also, knitted this tea cozy last week during my exile from the net. It's a pattern from Sugar n Cream. The Royal yarn is from Peaches & Cream.

Another Ballband cloth in S&C Sunny Sky & the Valentine Candy Box from Monthly Dishcloths in Royal (Peaches & Cream.)
Nope, I haven't finished the toe-up socks yet. I don't even want to think about them right now.
Maybe I'll just knit another soap bag and wear the pair of them instead. Nifty.

If I haven't commented on your blog lately it's because I wasn't able to do so. Some blogs still won't let me do that. I still have things to figure out on the new net service & a slew of plugins to download. Whatever that means. ;)

Have knittingly good week, Y'all!

Be Sweet, Y'all

That's not an order, Y'all. ;) Be Sweet (Magic Ball) is the yarn I used for this Frilly Wrap from Creative Knitting magazine, September, 2005. It's a combination of baby mohair, bits of ribbon, and cording & it's very soft. Here's a picture of six of the different yarns that were in each ball. I didn't get a pic of the stands that have little knot on them though. Very nifty yarn, I liked the way it made the rows interesting without having to make the changes myself. The wrap takes two balls of yarn.
Bertha May couldn't wait to try on this wrap. She says it looks better on her, probably true, but she's gettin' a little sassy for my likin'. Ah, well.
Back view.
Melanie, hakucho, & Missy gave me this award. I was tickled pink & I'm sending it back their way, because they have made my day with their comments and blog posts for over a year now. Everyone who leaves a comment here makes my day. Thanks, Y'all!

Be sweet, Y'all! ;p
