...that's how I feel for not posting. I feel so guilty, that I even dreamed that I had updated the blog.
I've been very busy and lazy, that's all I have to say for myself. I started a new job (can't tell you where, just in case I want to rant about it) and a new quarter in school.

I've been knitting for my new niece and had a little project in between.
Let me show you what I've been doing:

This little booties are the first thing that I knitted for the baby. My sister told me she was pregnant less than one week before she was supposed to arrive for her visit. I had to have something for the baby, so I decided on these little worsted-weight booties. They were very quick and she liked them a lot. This were knitted before we knew it was a girl, I think the yarn works both ways, but the dad disagrees (I'm glad it's a girl!).

The yarn used is some recycled wool that I dyed some time ago and used for Zaida's hat. I still have enough left for another hat or maybe a small jacket, What do you think? Do you think the yarn is "too much" for a little jacket?

This is EZ's Surplice Jacket

It's almost done (that's an old picture), but I won't show what it looks like until It gets to Zurich.

I finally finished my little brother's scarf! I started it a long time ago. I think it's too small, or at least not as big as I intended it to be at the beginning. I noticed that my gauge has gotten considerably looser in this last years. Compare the beginning and end, maybe I've become a more relaxed knitter, who knows.

The yarn is (if my memory doesn't fail me) Lion Brand Wool-ease and I used 2 balls.

I made a Bainbridge scarf for myself. This was a very quick and easy knit. So easy and quick that I considered making it as this year's Christmas present...then I tried it on, not at all what I had in mind, but the more time passes the more it grows on me. I think I finished it like a month ago, and after trying it again for the picture, I'm now thinking it would be a great Christmas present ;-)

The yarn that I used is this one that I dyed myself.

Okay, enough for today. I still have pictures to show you (there's one of a cat) and stories to tell you ( that I think about it, do I ? really?) I don't want to use up all my material in one post because we know what that leads to...
