how fun!!! We are going to a friend's house... but the kids range in age from my 2yo to a friend's 9yo (and about any age inbetween) , so who knows how long we will last there before it gets ugly! 9 overtired children could be bad you know! I'm in the CST, so hopefully I'll be able to pop in before the party ends!
I am crocheting a couple of the Lion Brand cotton bunny blankets for a few babies due soon so I'm not getting into any knitting until those are done. I should be able to finish one tonight if I make it home in time to catch the party here.

I will be working on the Tree of Life Afghan, which I'm making for a couple that is getting married tomorrow. It won't be ready in time for the wedding, but I'm getting close...maybe by the time they get home from their honeymoon.

I haven't done any "fancy" projects with crocheting. Mostly hats for chemo patients. I think I'm really liking the knitting though!

I look forward to joining in tonight!

Glad you found us...this will be a great place for a new knitter to be tonight. If you run into any "snags" ask away...you've got some great help that I see will be showing up off and on all night. Don't be shy! I know from experience that they LOVE to help

Similar to the pattern shown. I'm using Fisherman's Wool (not very practical for a newlywed, I know). It's a cream color, which I felt would show up the cable work better.

I'm on the last tree section, and then I have to make the border.

I'll be here too. Just saying home with the cat. Had a long day at work and really looking forward to some TV, knitting and some fun time on here with all of you! I'll most likely work on a cowl I've been making but I might just cast on something new for fun...

I'm doing the scarf pattern from my LionBrand Learn to Knit Kit (Christmas present from DH ). I finished the hat last night. I was so pleased with it.

I'm almost done with the first leg, with the garter stitch. Then it goes into the stockinette stitch. I've practiced purl but putting it into play on a real pattern has me a bit nervous.

I did a dish cloth the other night, in garter stitch. Perhaps I should do another one but use stockinette to get some practice in. Ohhh, the options.
