A Glass Head and other knitting news

Well it is another year and I just past my 3rd year anniversary of knitting. I can't believe I've been knitting for 3 years. I am definitely happy with the progress I have made during this time. It is always enjoyable to look back on what you made in the beginning and seeing how you have improved. An example would have to be the teddy bears I've made, both were from the pattern used for The Mother Bear Project. The first one was made in about Sept. of 2006 and the

second was done in August of 2008.

In other knitting news I am working away on the blanket squares for a blanket exchange I am taking part of in the greatest ravelry group known as Knit Knack. I have procrastinated on making these squares and now with the deadline looming I have been knitting nothing but squares. I have until the end of the month and 12.5 more squares to go. Then the process of sending them all out. After that will come the process of me sewing the squares I receive together. I guess I should take some pictures of my squares...

Oh and now about the rest of the post title. A Glass Head. I just had to share that I am now the proud owner of a Pier 1 glass head. I have been looking for one of these for at least a year now and now I have one. I can't wait to make a cool hat to use this as a model. I guess I'll have to wait till those squares are done.

Awesome new head! I'd love to see pics of your squares. I decided that I'm going to wait until I have all 24 knitted, then mail them at once.

Just wait 'til we're all old with 50 years of knitting under our belts - won't that be a sight to see!
