Not a long yarn

So I haven't been doing much knitting lately. The TV and computer have kept my attention lately. Even though I usually enjoy knitting and watching TV at the same time, I've just been sitting and watching.

I am still working on the scarf I started using the yarn I bought in England.

I am still working on the Better-be-easy shawl.

I am still working on a little mat for my tea pot out of the same yarn I made the cozy out of.

I have almost completely finished the pink wristwarmers For the Cure. I just need to knit the thumbs. I don't know what i am avoiding it.

Last night for my knitting book club I decided I wanted to knit on something different. So I dug through my knitting and found a pair of socks, I don't even know how long it has been since I worked on them. I was even surprised to realize I had completed one of the socks. After finally tracking down the pattern I started the second sock. It is very easy, just knitting...the pattern is in the yarn. Simple, mindless and I seem to be motivated to work on it.

I have L_'s blankie to finish. I have about 2/3's of it done, but it is WAY too hot to be having a big ole blankie on your lap.

Let's not forget all the knitting I have been commissioned to do by friends...Pammie is a bad friend!

Anyway, I feel the urge to knit!

I have taken lots of pictures of what I am knitting on...

I am knitting a pair of wrist warmers For the Cure, which I will donate, and then they will be sold at Race for the Cure for cancer research. I have almost finished the first one, I just need to finish the thumb.

Then I have the blanket for L_ I have been working on:

I finished my tea cozy! I am making a little mat, same yarn and pattern as the tea cozy for my tea post to sit on.

I have dipped into the yarn I bought in England and began my English Memories scarf based on THIS PATTERN. I really like how it is turning out.

Last but not least, the It Better Be Easy shawl...

So, there it is!
