From The Craft Table

On my craft table I have a stack of patterns that I have been wanting to get to for awhile.  There are buckets and bags of yarn ready to be wound and cast on under the craft table.

When I finished the last bear for the Mother Bear Project I cast on many new projects. 


One good thing about not having started them before Sept.  is that I ended up having better yarn selections for the projects.  For instance, the Mini Maiden in Cocoa I won from Lisa - Fibernymph and the Indigo and Bronze Age I was lucky enough to snag from a Hazel Knits update.  Otherwise, they would have ended up being knit in some various shades of blue that are in abundance in my stash.

A few shots of the really pretty ones, or at least the ones that are large enough that the fabric can be photographed.

I cast on another Clapotis and I am casting on another shawl tonight.  October is all about socks and hats, mostly purple hats for Katie - Knittin' On The Fly click for babies KAL.  Socks for Socktoberfest.  November I will be going to the Interweave Lab and taking classes and enjoying some amazing keynote speakers - more on that later.

I want to knit more bears.  I am trying to finish the Green Mountain Shawl as well.  We'll see how it goes.  I am enjoying the Challenges, Lois of Knittings My Bag has done a wonderful job.
