All it needs is a zipper, again
Hello, everyone, and welcome to the wild and wacky life of Amanda and her little pug Yoda. This Christmas was filled with tons of dog toys?!
While little Yoda looks like she was bad, she really was very good at putting the toys everywhere!! But that's not all folks! Yoda, who is styling in her new coat, also is one of the best dressed pugs in her new muscle tee:
But who could forget how happy she looked in her Santa hat:
Last night I put off the fingers again. But for a good cause--Christmas knitting. I have one more project that I must finish by Christmas: a Sophie Bag. I am knitting the body at this point. Quick and pretty easy.

The Knitty knit-a-longs, that is. Eklektica! has already put out a call for Mariah knit-a-longers. What did I do? Well, I signed up of course! I even hopped on over to Joann.com and ordered my yarn. It was only $3.99 a ball--good deal. I ordered the Russet color. It sounds like a potato, but it looks like a rusty brown:
Ei was gifted with the Japanese magazine with this pattern:
I picked this up with something in mind--labels. I know it is a little late for Christmas gifts, but for future use. You just design what you want, print it, and it works like fabric. There are 3 sheets in this fabric for about $5 at Walmart. I know you can also get it at places like Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, and quilt stores. This way I can try out different looks before I decide if I want to order woven labels.
The Winter Knitty is up! There are a couple of patterns that I really like: Leftovers, Mariah, Tempting, and Pasha. Now, I do have to mention this--I am all for women's power, but I think Womb is a little much. Yes, it is what you think it is. Why would anyone want a knitted...Anyway, I can't wait to read the articles. The technical articles are very good. I learned to kitchener from one of those articles. Happy knitting!
I worked a bit more on the left front panel of the Ribby Cardi last night. It's moving along pretty quickly. I thought it would be like the sleeve anticipation, but it really isn't that bad.
Did you notice that as soon as December 1 rolled around, your life became much more hectic? I don't think we can really blame it on Christmas. I mean we've known for twelve months when it is--you'd think we would all start our shopping, crafting, knitting a little earlier to avoid the stress.
The back of the Ribby Cardi in Antique Blue. I am doing the plain pannel version. Next will be the ribbed...
I decided to do a sleeve before I began the rest of the body. Kind of trying to beat the sleeve blues. But I am not sure I am happy with it, so it may be frogged and reknit--after I do the rest of the body!
