Still alive

Well made it thru the holiday just. I got really sick and am still (I think my relatives shared some germs). With all the travel, non-stop business and illness I haven't had much time to knit I will update hopefully this weekend.

I want them!

Have you seen Eunny's two new patterns! The mitten pattern isn't up yet and I am not sure that it will be on her site or only in her book I wish I knew when that was coming out cause I am going to have to have it!
I haven't been knitting much i finished my collard poncho and was thinking about submitting it to knitty but I am not sure about that. I am also making an easy purse out of leftover yarn from the poncho. I would have embellished the purse more but it is made with thick thin yarn and so in my opinion doesn't hold a cable very well. plus I am using 11's so that makes it a little looser. I have been crocheting some patterns from Craftster. A octipus and a ball for my ds and knitting a bear for a friends son.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab

I ordered a bunch of imps ears from here which are samples and oh my gosh they are awsome my favorite ones are Eve, Aunt Caroline's Joy mojo, Jack, Lucy's kiss and Shadow Witch Orchid (plus a bunch more and I got 2 extra ones for free)! The first two are my most favorite so far though. If you haven't checked this place out do! They make each order from scratch so you have to be patient but it is well worth it!
