Ive got pictures if you have time

I finished my first scarf just need to give it a proper good block. I will probably do that when I get them all finished. :)
And Im nearly finished with the second scarf!
These are from Victorian Lace Today they are the Double Boarder Scarf. The pattern is easy enough to remeber and they are flying off the needles considering I seem to pick them up only now and again. once I finish this second scarf I WILL be taking a break to finish my other sock. I just wanted to start these becauses usually I panic that I wont finish my xmas knitting in time. But I know this year I wll finish in plenty of time.
I really should update the blog more but its so much easier writting a message to twitter then sitting down and updating here so just look at my twitter feed to see what I am up to daily. :)
BTW yes I have still been behaving and have not yet started to read the third book of the twilight series I really am holding out until the fourth comes out on paperback trust me its hard though! I watched the movie though the other day again. :) I think thats being good as thats only the second time I seen it. I actually prefer the book to the film. the film is good and I did enjoy rewatching it but I just think the book offers that something more to you. :) Mind you it may be becauses I LOVE to read anyways.
Right Ive got a scarf to finish!

Quickly Quickly

I finished the first of my Travelers Socks from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush
Sorry I just took that the other day and put it in twitter instead of flickr so its just a link instead of a pic. but go look! :) I cast on 70 stitches did the first bit of the pattern decreased 2 stitches and then did the first chart for the leg and then went ahead and did the heel and foot plain. I was going to bring the pattern down the top of the foot but in tthe end decided to just leave it plain and show off the colours of the wool. :)
Ive also started my Christmas Knitting... yep you heard that right starting in July!
Its the Double Border Scarf from Victorian Lace Today. I read about trying to get your head around the pattern and remembering what side is supposed to be what row from Ravelry. And once I realised thats where people were having issues I made sure to note which was which and Ive been knitting happily away on it. :) will be making 4 of these and I will be very happily sick of the pattern just like I was with the Melon Scarfs I knit 2 years ago! :) Using some very nice King Cole Anti Tickle Merino 100% New Wool for these that I got off of ebay. Its really nice! I will have to get more for some other projects when Im finshed and Ive knit my other sock and two cardigans Ive got planned... *sigh* not enough hours in the day to get all the knitting done I want!
