Time for some knitting!!

Well, I just dropped my sewing machine off at the shop!! It'll be there a couple weeks at least. Ouch, that hurts! Maybe it'll give me time for some prep work for some new projects.... Though my DH and I just agreed on a spending freeze, so I guess I'll be limited to my stash - so either every quilt back will be pieced, or I just won't get around to finishing anything!! Neither prospect is all that great!!

So I guess it's time to pick up my knitting again! I could finish something I've started already... but that's no fun. My friend got me a neat book of knitted toy patterns for Christmas, so I started making the elephant from this book, out of celery green soy yarn from my yarn stash! :)

Since I don't have a picture of that, here's a picture of my little one wearing a pair of socks I knitted for her before she was born... she finally fits in them!

I look forward to seeing the elephant. I'm just learning to knit and LOVE elephants, so maybe I'll tackle it in the future.

That gives me incentive to get it done! I've done one half and hit the mental block that always comes along when you have to do the same thing again, (second sock syndrome?!)
