Knitting for Christmas

I meant to post this yesterday, but I was sick sick sick with food poisoning...ick! Today, I still feel very weak and I haven't been able to eat solid foods yet, but yesterday was just not pretty one bit! I faded in and out of sleep all day and just felt so...uncomfortable! I wanted to knit or crochet something b/c I find that so very relaxing and comforting, but it was all I could do yesterday to sit upright.

Anywho, on to happier knitting!

I've been working on this simple stockinette scarf for awhile now, and finally finished it this past weekend.

I've seen people pin their knit items down, but I never knew why...until my stockinette stitched scarf started curling up and my friend at the yarn store told me to pin the scarf flat and spray it with water. I patiently waited all day for my scarf to dry and when I pulled it curled right back. boo! I guess the trick only works when you work with natural materials, like wool or alpaca. Oh well, it's still pretty cute and will make a great Christmas gift...I hope!

I've got lots of other great knitting ideas for Christmas presents, but I suppose I'm really running out of time, aren't I? I need to get knitting!

GET WELL SOON! I should really learn how to knit.

I’ve just started my own fashion related blog and need all the support I can get!

Here is the link:

I was wondering if we could do a link swap and if you could add me to the list of blogs on your page?

I’ve already added you to my favs :)

Keep up the great work!

Thanks (and please reply back)

Wow, I got lost in all the crafty projects on your blog and forgot how I even got here but you have to be the craftiest person ever! Is there anything you can't do?! I'm amazed. Adorable puppy too. :)

Merry Christmas!

Hey Shredz, I added you on SA but I'm trying to keep the Chic Life links to just crafts/home stuff. Thanks for the comment! Good luck with your blog!

Hey Shawn, yes, it's a pretty busy (and messy) house right Thanks for the compliment on the puppy and thanks for stopping by!
