I have SO many pictures to show everyone! First, I’ll show my new sock for my SITM Pal. I think these are going MUCH better than the socks that I had started out making. I’m making the Monkey socks by Cookie.
I’m also working on Norberta on Knitty for my boyfriend. I was hoping to be able to get it to him tomorrow, but it’s not going to happen. I do, however, think it’s totally adorable and I know he’s going to love it!
Everyone and their mother has been working on the Mystery Stole 3. I am one of those many many people. I just finished Clue 3. It’s apparently 1/3 of the way done, and I absolutally love it!
I did my color swap today with Wendy and she gave me this great yarn and the pattern to make some dish cloths. I did the one that has “Born To Knit” written on it. I know you probably can’t see it too well, but it’s there and I think it’s adorable and it went so fast. I did it just tonight! It took maybe two hours, with breaks and while watching television. I was VERY impressed.
She also made me a pair of Monkey socks. She read on my blog that I hate DPNs so she decided to make me a pair of socks. I absolutally love them and it confirms that my SITM pal is going to LOVE the ones I make her!
Well, that’s all I’ve got for right now. I just wanted to get all of these pictures up here! Hope everyone has a good weekend. I’m so excited for this weekend. It’s officially my anniversary =) I’ll try to post pictures from the concert/trip. OH! That reminds me to charge my camera. I’ve got to get on that one!
So, I think that the Mystery Stole 3 group [ on yahoo! ] is by far the best thing that I’ve ever joined! I haven’t finished Clue #1 yet, but I still think it looks fantastic! I know I messed it up a little bit, but I thought to myself, “fuck it,” I really don’t care anymore because by the time I’m done no one will ever be able to notice. So, yeah, here’s how it looks so far [ so far as in more than halfway through Clue #1 ]:
So, other than that, my new KAL is doing really well and everyone should come check it out [ HERE! ] and join. Everyone knows that there is something that’s on Knitty.com that they want to knit, but they don’t have a real reason to do it because of all the other projects they have going, but now you finally have a reason to do it.
Well, other than that, I don’t really have much to talk about. I’m just hanging out with the boyfriend right now, so I think I’ll get back to that. He’s falling asleep because I’m not paying attention to him. What a baby! But what can I say? I love him to death! Who wouldn’t love this guy:
Alrighty, I’m going to get going. Talk to you guys again soon! I think I’m also going to get back to working on my Mystery Stole 3! Goodnite guys =)
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 =)
