"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

not that anyone will notice

I'll be MIA until next week. I'm heading to Michigan for my brother's wedding (finally) and won't be able to post. My knitterly happenings since Monday:

not much. i'm working on the gift package for Preggo, who's baby shower is the weekend after I get back. What will be included (er, what I hope will be included)

1) Teddy Bear All in One
2) Rowan Denim Pants from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (made with butterfly cotton)
3) Booties from Frog Tree Alpaca, pattern from 50 Baby Booties to Knit
4) Booties made with coordinating mercerized brown cotton to go with Teddy Bear
5) Pair of felted clogs for Preggo.

The clogs are tough, b/c it's been so warm. But she asked for clogs more than a year ago. Since I'm moving soon, I thought I better knit them now.

And, how come I know about Knitty and Magknits but not Spunmag?
I also found some cute patterns on this blog, Knitting for Boozehags. Who can resist with a name like that? I especially like the Bevin and the Lelah-top.

See you all next week! Hopefully I'll have some FOs to report.

Um, so I have a question. The pattern is written to preshrink the garment before sewing. Are you sure these are going to be the right size?
