A really honest to goodness update on my knitting post!

I know, you are all in total shock. I am posting. There are pictures of knitting. I bet you thought that I just stopped knitting, and this blog was just a sham. You thought that I just went on and on about grad school as a way of deflecting the focus from the lack of actual knitting content. The lame Internet quizzes, the "I am too busy to post" post, and the endless MEMEs were all part of a plot to make everyone BELIEVE I was a real life knitting blogger when in fact I was just a poser. Well, you were wrong. I do actually knit.

Pattern: Sweet Mary Janes
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes
Needle: size 7 dpns

Here are some finished Sweet Mary Janes. They are all done, and Sly is bundling them off to work to give as gifts as I type this.

And here is the Sweet Mary Jane carnage! Don't look at the poor, tragic, unfinished little dears. Mommy will take care of them!

Pattern: We Call Them Pirates (Lesa's worsted version)
Yarn: Lamb's Pride
Needles: size 9 16' circs

I did another "my version" of this hat for Sly since he liked Randy's so much.

Pattern: I just made it up
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky
Needles: size 7 dpns

Here is a lonely mitten I made for Michelle for Christmas. Since Michelle has two hands, I need to make another one soon.

Last, but not least, my loot from the 2nd annual Yarn Ho Christmas party. I just love all my gifts, and thank you so much to all the givers!

I hope you all get your Christmas knitting done on time!

If i hadn't have seen the pictures with my own two (ok, 4) eyes, i might not have believed it. There really is knitting going on over there in "Molly Land"!! LOL!!

Nice haul from the Yarn Ho's. What a lucky Gal you are. ;)

So you were posing as a poser! Hah! I knew knitting must be going on behind the scenes.
