Day 2, we are up and running

First things first... Yes the answer to the riddle yesterday was a



I hope you enjoyed it. I love trying to make them up.

We had quite a few comments yesterday, that was good. I had almost 100 hits to the page though, can you imagine if they all commented too. We are well on our way to that 2000 hit goal. Woo hoo.

I am still building the prize box and am enjoying that. Glad it's a long month cause I have so much I want to put in there.

I decided to do a dishcloth exchange for the first time this month, so in between blogging, housework, Adam watching, etc. I will also be filling a "puffy" for the exchange. I know I am crazy, but I felt led to do it, so I obeyed.

I did something to myself yesterday, not sure what, I am going to believe it's just a pulled muscle and nothing more serious. But OUCH.

Okay onto the contest assignment for today...

What is the last thing you made for yourself? Tell us about it, maybe a link to the pattern if you have one?

Post your comment today to be entered into the drawing for the prize at the end of the month.


The last thing I made for myself was a pair of slipper socks, and that was a year ago. I like making things for others more then me, they are more appreciative, LOL.

Okay, that's it for today... have a great one.

Hello! The last thing I made for myself was a scarf from Alpaca Grande wool. I cast on 20 sts (multiple of 4 sts) and row 1 was K1,P1, row 2 was K2, P2. Just repeat-this makes a pretty, ribbed scarf that won't curl-has seed stitch inbetween the sts. Easy!

I made a scarf when I first started knitting(4 years ago) and it was so ugly I kept it!! I have yet to make anything for myself recently. I have a pattern for a sweater wrap that I'd like to try, so maybe I'll do that over the winter... I've never done a sweater type thing so it should be interesting! :) Oh oh... I did make myself a washcloth a few months ago!! I almost forgot!!

The last thing I made for myself was mittens. I got the pattern from an old pamphlet my grandma gave me, so I can't link to it, but it's just a basic mitten pattern. Perfect for the cold weather we'll be getting pretty soon.

The last thing I made for myself was a soda can cozy that I actually designed myself. I never get to keep anything I make but this is I have been using everyday. It's quick and easy. If anyone is interested the free pattern is here.

Ummm this is embarrassing... I haven't knit oh wait...

I knit a scarf for myself on Mother's Day... it was from a yarn that I picked with my $25 card from that LYS in Raleigh (I earned it after spending an 'awful' amount of money in there over time!)...

It's really pretty, and I should post a link of it on my blog at some point... before that though.. i can't recall the last thing I knit for myself..

A Feather and Fan Shawl, however it's not finished yet! ROFL! I keep plugging away at it, but I just can't seem to finish. Other projects keep popping up. And the cloths that I have done have been usurped by the children, LOL!

Kathy and everyone - sad to say I've never made anything for myself .. everything I've made has been a gift for someone else. However, I have purchased yarn for a capelet - maybe next year!! Take care everyone

I knit a dishcloth - knitted for whoever is going to wash the dishes in this house.
So I guess it wasn't really knitted just for ME. (DH and I disagree over who does the dishes more often.)

I have made myself a couple of dishcloths. One was a butterfly that didn't turn out right and the second was a tulip dishcloth. I didn't like the pattern.
