Knitting Up A Storm!

Thursday, April 17, 2008

I am at my limit people - if I knit one more webkinz sweater I think I'll scream. Look at Maddie's pile of webkinz:


And Julianna's pile:


Believe it or not, I have only knit sweaters for 1/2 of their webkinz toys. I do think the amount of webkinz they have is kind of nuts. However, most of them were rewards for hockey accomplishments, b-day presents, and some they bought with their own money. Plus, I really like them and when I see a cute one, I scoop it up. I'm an enabler I guess - webkinz style.

Even though these things are getting quite boring to knit, two things good things have come out of knitting all these sweaters. 1. I am using ALOT of stash yarn for these sweaters. You know all the odd balls us knitters own and don't know what to do with. But we keep just in case. At one point, I was going to Goodwill all these odd balls because they were driving me nuts to look at, but I am glad that I didn't.

The 2nd reason is my girls are so happy. Well, at first they were, now they kind of expect me to knit one for each of their toys. I have to remind them to say thanks now. Sheesh.
