Leah says… I’m not even a teeny tiny bit Irish, but Happy St. Patrick’s day to all of you who are! My brother, as I mentioned earlier, and his girlfriend are in Ireland for a year and he emailed to say everyone in Galway, where he is living, has been drunk since Sunday. I will definitely try to have a green beer today!

 As for my knitting, well, I finished this!

Actually, I lied, it’s not finished, I’m going to knit more into the neck as it keeps slipping off when I wear it. Yup- I can WEAR it in MARCH because it’s so freakin warm out! Yesterday was truly balmy, I kid you not! I’m loving this weather, as long as Spring in March doesn’t mean Winter in April- then Leah will be very blue. I like my seasons to happen during the months dedicated to them!!!!

 Anyway- what’s next for the knitting queue? As soon as I finish an easy scarf, I’m starting this….

 A baby blanket for C and T’s baby boy, T is due in June! The pattern is free from ravelry and this weekend, I’m going with J’s Mom and sister to yarn shop and I’ll start it hopefully on the weekend.

‘Project- Economical Knitting’ has been going very well. I love one skein patterns! I think I’m going to knit some coasters with leftover linen wool (loooooooove linen wool) and some more cowls as well. They will be my peace of mind when I’m bored with the blanket.

Oh I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you with all the cheering that’s been going on. GO CANADA! March 2, 2010

Leah says: Did you guys see that hockey game, Canada vs States for the gold medal or what?  I was out there in the middle of it at Yonge and Dundas in Toronto- sang the anthem about 16 times, nursing a very sore throat this morning, and am so proud of my country.  You American hockey players sure didn’t make it easy.  Tieing the score with 20 seconds left of the game… come on!  I think I had about three minor heart attacks during the overtime. 
 
Anyways, back to knitting!  Check out what the Leah’s Olympic knits have produced:  Whaddaya think of Justins new hat?  Cute, huh? 

And a cowl scarf for his Mom- this edging is called picot edging and is so cute and easy to knit.

  Right now, Operation: Knit all my yarn, save money! Is proving to be a success.  I’m knitting a poncho with some yarn my mom gave me. It’s acrylic and twisty.  I hate it.  But it looks nice, and I have oodles of it, so I’ll suffer. 
 
I’m probably going to be popping out a ton of knitted items while I go through olympic withdrawl.  I already am so sad the games are over!!
