Wahoo for firsts!

Excitement in our house today.  Our first time using our new swift!  Yay!  This is extremely exciting for me as today was not only a new experience for both of us with the swift, but we were winding my first skeins of hand-dyed yarn!  I know, I know, I am slow to jump on the wagon, but jumping on late is better than missing the wagon altogether.  
Action Shot:

Very poor pictures of the yarn to follow, as I was trying to use the couch as a background and the lighting in our living room is less than poor.  Also sorry for the poor picture quality as I was using my mom's camera.

My knitting life is quite boring, I am sad to say.  I have been waiting for new yarn to come in the mail and I often find myself sneaking peeks out the window to see if the mail man has come yet.  Sadly, my yarn has yet to appear.  So, the pictures from eBay will have to suffice. 
Also, I finally got a swift and ball winder!  Yay for Easter!

Not much to say

I don't have much going on.  More knitting on the scarves which I have dubbed as my "sick scarves".  My knitting ADD is being sufficed because I am switching back and forth between the scarves at about one hour intervals.  Although I love the two scarves I am knitting, I am dying to cast on the Multidirectional Scarf from Ravelry.  I have some lovely variegated yarn that I think would look lovely in that pattern.  Hope everyone had a safe and fun St. Patrick's Day!  Until next time, I will leave you with a picture of the coveted Multidirectional Scarf.

Sorry for lack of posts.  Sickness has not run short in our house this season.  New picture posts to come soon.  I have been knitting like a fiend on my scarves, which have become my new obsession.  I hope to have pictures of each of them up by the first few days of spring break.

Not Another Teenager

A little background... I read blogs everyday.  I am a blog addict.  I love about 15 blogs and check them every morning and night.  I am hoping that our blog becomes one of those blogs that people love and can't wait to check on every morning.  With that being said, I, the younger of the sisters, would like you all to become obsessed with our blog.  A conscious effort will be made everyday to post something, even if it is just a thought.  I know photo blogs are more fun, so here is a favorite photo of me with my knitting.  
That's all for now.

Blossoming Bud for Bouncing Baby

So, I felt the urge to knit a hat and I love making baby hats because they go so quickly.  I got Itty-Bitty Hats as a gift and I was dying to get started making all the adorable little creations.  The Upside Down Daisy was my first hat and it was so charming, I was tempted to slap out fifteen of them for all the baby girls of the future.  I knit really quickly and I loved working with the Rowan Cotton.  The GGH Samoa was also quite delightful to play with.  All in all, I just plain liked making this hat.  

Completely finished:
I know the petals are a little sketchy looking, but that's what I get for knitting under the table during Scholars' Bowl practice.

I am so excited to be starting a knitting blog.  My sister and I started knitting about 4 years ago and try to knit as often as possible.  This blog is going to be a collaboration of our brains and knitting.  We have been reading knitting blogs forever and finally decided to jump on the bandwagon.  So, jump on, hang on tight, and prepare for the ride.
