Technical Difficulty

We got back from Disney World Tuesday but when I got home my main computer is broken. It has crashed in the blue screen won't boot up kind of way. So Pictures will be slow in coming until I figure out how to load them on the laptop that B tends to hog when he's home. We had a great time, the kids rode lots of rides and we saw all 4 parks in 4 days. Note to anyone going to DW soon, don't go to all 4 parks in 4 days. It is exhausting! Oh well it was fun while it lasted. I started a pair of ribbed socks on the trip and last night picked up my silver sweater again. I have 2 sleeves and a collar left, then all I have left is the sewing together. I will blog again I promise sorry there isn't anything more interesting to write about. Blog with you all soon!

A Lump of Coal

I made this bag from the Interweave Knits mag. It's the Dumpling Bag by Sharon Dreyfuss. This is a great quick knit for a gift. I used Lamb's Pride Burly Spun in Charcoal.

I found some shell rings at a local crafts store. I think they look pretty good.

I have made these mittens from Elizabeth Zimmerman's book, Knitting Around. They are the Mitered Mittens. I used a garter stitch bottom edge instead of the i-cord edging. The only problem is one has no blue in it at all so it is a little boring. I have enough Noro Kueryon left over to make another mitten so I think I will . I'll have a 3 mitten set in case one gets lost. Then the only thing left is the thumbs. The pattern calls for an after thought thumb so I need to get up the nerve to cut into these to make that.
On the home front, we are planning to go to Florida soon to visit Walt Disney World. The kids are really excited of course, I am going to be excited once I get on the plane:) I have a bazillion things to plan and pack for that so I better get going.
