Hey everyone!

I haven't done a lot of knitting lately, but I have a few pictures to share with all of you!

Yarn Haul!

I started off last week (Monday) getting these two boxes in the mail. A friend of mine - bustix2000 on LJ and her icon community - sent me these two boxes of yarn and vintage needles. I've already picked out a pattern to make with all of the yarn:

Gauge Swatch Cardigan

This cardigan, from the book Knitorama. It is made out of 30 gauge swatches. I've been wanting to make it for a while, and now I have the yarn to do so. :D

I also learned to crochet last week, and made this:

FO: Amigurumi Octopus

An amigurumi octopus! It is a prototype for a request by a friend of mine. Here is a shot for scale:

I've also cast on for the Koolhaas Hat in Manos del Uruguay for my Photographer friend, and I've been working on The Snapping Turtle Skirt from Norah Gaughan's book Knitting Nature. And, of course, I am working on my Green Dragon socks.

So, I guess I have been doing a lot of knitting lately. :P I'm off to bed for the night, but I will leave you with a picture of my latest objet d'art

Needle Sculpture

What? I needed someplace to keep my needles! :P
