MsKnitaholic's InfiKnit Adventures

Welcome to my wonderful world of knitting. I am a beginning knitter who just started a couple of months ago. This is a place for me to keep track of projects, post patterns, etc.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!
Mine was nice and relaxing. We met up with some friends for a picnic, went to see Spiderman2 (which was very good), saw tons of fireworks and yes, I got some knitting done!

I finished the main blanket portion of the pound of love. I just need to knit the hood and sew it on to be finished. I am hoping to get that done tonight before I go to bed. I will make sure to post a picture before I send it off to Phoenix, so that my sis in law, Kristen has it for when she gives birth.

We spent some time in Walmart yesterday. I needed weird things. Shampoo, a rice cooker and tablecloth. Aren't these things on everyone's shopping lists?? I thought so. The rice cooker is very cool. Had fun making some healthy brown rice with that last night. I was also eyeing the craft section there. I know most of the yarn is acrylic, but acrylic yarn is oh-so-handy for certain types of projects and I was also looking at some of the fun fur and boucle yarn for scarf xmas presents. I ended up picking up Peaches n Cream yarn (I guess it's like sugar n cream - but not) in a cool winterberry color. I don't know what I'm going to make with it yet, but probably something kitchen-y.

I guess after I finish this blanket, I'm gonna go back and finish my sophie. I did sign up for the sophie-a-long and I made the bottom and then picked up the baby blanket instead. I guess when I don't have pictures, I have a lot to say!!!

How does the rice cooker work? I thought about getting one, but I have a hard time bringing myself to buy one because I keep thinking a pot with a lid will do the same thing.
