Maddie Knits

My addiction to knitting and the life around it.

UFOs to Hell

So, it has taken me forever, but I have finally gotten around to sticking up some pictures of my projects that I just can’t seem to get finished!  First, there is my very first sweater that I’ve ever made that I used some junk yarn with and I didn’t do any shaping because I wanted to learn how to do everything that making a sweater entails and not have to worry about making a piece of shit with nice and expensive yarn.

See why I think it’s ugly?  Anyways, I also can’t seem to get into finishing this cute little pattern off of knitty that I had been talking about.  I started it, I think it’s great, but now I just don’t know.  I’m not a big one on lace, so tell me what you think:

I was hoping that someone  could steer me in the right direction while looking for a yarn store in the Miami area.  If you do, just shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment!

Alright, well that’s all I really have time for right now.  It’s time for me to get back to The Starter Wife [ Debra Messing Rocks ].  Goodye for now =)

  1. i think you’re lace is lovely! you should stick with it. plus lace really undergoes a huge transformation when you block it. you could try pinning it out to see how it might look too.

  2. Hey Maddie!
    I think it might turn out a little nicer than you think. I agree that you should keep with it and steam block it for a more finished look. I need to tie up a few loose ends with some of my projects as well, before allowing myself to contiue on with new projects. In the meantime, I think I’ll procrastinate some more by getting started on your box-o-red.
    Happy knitting!
