hi everyone, i'll try to post some pics later but here's what i'm working on:

a sweater for my daughter : it doesn't look exactly like the pic but its my first time working with multi colored yarn (dont remember the name :oops: ) but it still looks pretty good. its also my first sweater.

2 afghans. one i'm almost done with. my little cousin seen me working on it and she liked it so much so i'm gonna give it to her :).

the other one i'm planning of finishing it up so i can give it to my friend who's having a baby in September.

I just finished a pair of socks for my husband using fixation cascade (or the other way around?) yarn and he loved them and wore them once to the gym to work out and after i washed them they shrunk big time i'm so disappointed :(

oh well. i'll try and post pics later :)

I can't wait to see your pictures! Everything sounds so nice. Sorry about the shrinking sock....I guess this is why we are supposed to wash our gauge swatches, huh?! (I never do, perhaps I should start, huh?!)

and the rainbow blanket i was making just to make. i liked it so i doubled the pattern. my little cousin seen me working it on the other day and liked it a lot so i told her i will give it to her for her birthday in oct. WELLLLLLLL my 2 year old wants it big time. everytime she sees it she hugs it and says its mine. so i guess i'll be making another one lol. i've got about 6 rows left then the fringe but i'll be allllllll done. my first big project!!!!
