Gauge Class is Over

I am glad that I took the class on gauge. Sara taught it and I learned quite a bit. I wasn't exactly sure how to count my stitches and such, I have just gone by luck and guess in the past. Now if I want to get adventurous and make a sweater I will be able to know how to make sure that the yarn and pattern will go together and most importantly if it will more than likely fit me when I am done. I don't think that I will be doing a sweater any time soon, but who knows.

I had a really good time and it was nice to be able to get out of the house. Kevin and James were waiting for me in the chair watching cartoons. James was fussy today and I guess he didn't get any better after I left. Poor little guy is trying to get 2 more teeth, so I am sure that is what is bothering him. I just wish that they would pop through and give us all a break.

Well Wednesday I get to go out again and this time we will be making a pumpkin. I still need to see if I have size 13 double pointed needles before I go. If not that is something that I will have to pick up there. I am curious to see what type of pattern we will use. I am guessing that since we are using the double pointed needles, that we will be knitting in the round, but I could be completely wrong on this.

I still need to pick my pattern for my scarf class. I think I have it narrowed down to 3 or 4. Now out of those I need to pick only one of them. This is going to be a hard choice. I don't want to pick something way over my head, but I also want something that is nice when it is finished. Guess I need to go through the book yet another time or two to see if I can narrow it down any more. Maybe I will see what they suggest at my next class. Humm that is an idea, that way I will know what to look at and what not to.

It is time to turn in for the night. Sweet Dreams.


  1. Hey chica... you're going blog crazy, eh? ;) I think it's awesome. I tried to learn to knit a couple of years ago and caught on a bit, but it wasn't my thing. Not the right timing, I guess. I LOVE knitted scarves and blankets though... *hint*hint* ;)

    Maybe I can pick up something from you on here to inspire me to go back to it.

  2. I am just going crazy in general. :) So what colors do you like? I still have some of the fuzzy yarn if you want a scarf. I believe I have a blue and green mix and a type of orange mix. I will have to look through my stash and see what I have.

    Maybe it could give you something to do between classes and in your "spare" (hahahaha) time. It is relaxing to me, plus you get something to show for it in the end.
