At last, some FOs!

But not what I'm supposed to be be knitting.... I'm getting nowhere fast on my cargo pants... It would really help if I actually worked on it. I have about an inch to go on the first leg.

So what did I do? I've cast on some Christmas knits. I was going to knit up a lot of things for a lot of people. But then I decided I wasn't going to knit anything. Ha! So I've cast on a PillowBot for my robot-loving brother. And then I need to cast on a squid iPod cozy for his new wife. And then I've cast on another Gillian scarf....

I knit one of the Gillian scarves for a swap that I did over on Flickr... I couldn't post it before my swap-pal got it, because I wanted it to be a surprise! So I finished that a while ago. Here's a pic...

It was so much fun to knit! So like I've said, I've cast on another one. It is another gift, for a cousin who's coming for Christmas.

Speaking of the above swap - it's the Color Me Happy Swaparooni on Flickr, as I mentioned. It was so much fun! My swap pal rocked (rocks - she still does!)!!! Look at all the fun stuff she sent me! And, as a non-knitter, I have to give her major props - she ventured into a yarn shop and got me some yummy soft yarn (upper left hand corner). I'm having problems remembering things, like how to take good pictures of things, so I have no pics of the yarn up close.
I also knitted a way-too-small hat for the Big Boy. It looked big enough for him - honestly it did. sigh...

He barely even let me put it on him for pictures.
OK - so I'm off to knit some and watch some TV.

Peace out, dudes!

So glad you liked your swap gifts.

And you, my friend, are the one that rocks.
