Lookie, lookie at what I made

You know I'm trying to get my knit on. Well...I have collected a ton of needles from thrift stores and ebay (I know I probably should come off some money and get really great needles...but these are actually ok, I checked out the different brand feedback before purchasing on a bunch of knitting websites).
I have a ton of flannel from the annual JA's $.99 sale. Can I tell you while they have the best prints, I have come to realize that I absolutely hate flannel. Well, I should say I don't know what to do with it. My kids don't like it and we live in a moderate climate that you don't really have the opportunity to need flannel clothing. I've made some lounge pants and bags, but still the flannel will just not die! So...I thought, hmmm...I'll make a knit roll for my needles. So, that's just what I did. I should have paid more attention to what I was doing since I should have stitched the pockets before attaching them to the outer fabric. Oh's utilitarian although far from perfect...sort of like me. Oh...and here's a picture of my progress so far on the sweater I'm working on. I'm knitting on my size 8 addi turbos. I'm digging them. I actually feel like a real knitter using them, lol. I might just finish this sweater before Christmas.

Oh cool! I keep meaning to shop Etsy for one of those. Mine are just living in a basket for now and it doesn't look very tidy. I use the JA flannel to make lovey blankets for the kiddos and for gifts. One yard and one package of the satin binding are the perfect size. Addis rock!
