So, um, yeah

July 31, 2012 Uncategorized

Damn! I had no idea it’s been a while since I last posted…oops! Anyway, I have been knitting. I have FOs galore. I have, however, not taken any pictures of them or any modeled pictures. I think I’m getting lazy. Remember the ChicKnits Ribby Pulli? I’ve only been working on it since 2007. Well, I […]

Vodka Lemonade Update

June 29, 2012 Great American Aran Afghan

Well, Folks, I’ve been focused. Which means that after completing Ribbon, I decided to focus on Vodka Lemonade. As you can see, I was able to complete the body. The seed stitch at the bottom is rolling a bit, but I think that will be fine once I’m done and I block this baby. While […]

Cast On Bind Off

June 22, 2012 Books

I just received my new copy of Cast On Bind Off. I seriously was considering taking a class on different bind offs/cast ons, but then saw that this book was coming out and I decided that it’s cheaper than a class! This is not the type of book I’ll sit and read. However, based on […]

New Knits Wednesday

June 20, 2012 Loopy Mango Alpaca blanket

I told you that I had a productive weekend finishing projects. Let me introduce the Loopy Mango Blanket. When I was in NY, I bought this yarn at Loopy Mango. I chose the brown alpaca because it was Yoda color. This way, I can leave it on the couch and not see the pug hairs […]

New Knits Monday

June 18, 2012 Custom Knits 2- Ribbon

It’s only taken me about 6 months to finally finish Ribbon. I originally started it because it had no sleeves, so I thought it would be a super quick knit. What the hell happened? I think I got bored, stopped traveling as much (thus no extra time), and got busy with life. Whatever the reason, […]

The Case of the Missing Yarn

June 1, 2012 Custom Knits 2- Ribbon

For some reason the other day I decided to pick up Ribbon. I had started it in December thinking it would be a quick knit and it soon fizzled. Quick because there are no sleeves! Anyway, I had the front and back all done waiting to be connected together. And then I noticed it – […]

More Days of Christmas in May

May 29, 2012 Pattern Review

Well, I didn’t want to leave you all hanging with the fun stuff that came in the mail for me. Today we will focus on more fabric. I’ve definitely started a fabric stash! Metro Textile Group Metro was actually the first place we went while in NY. We visited Kashi and I found some great […]

It’s Christmas!

May 23, 2012 Pattern Review

The Boy says it’s more like Chanukah since the UPS/FedEx/USPS guys are bringing me stuff every day! Either way, it’s an exciting week (not so excited for when the credit card bill arrives, though)! I have some items I bought before the NYC Pattern Review shopping extravaganza, so those items are thrown into the mix […]

Vodka Lemonade Update

May 22, 2012 Vodka Lemonade

Here I am plugging away on Vodka Lemonade. Thank goodness I didn’t just throw it to the side. The weather is erratic here (HOT one day and cool the next), so I think I’ll still be able to get some use out of it before the fall. I’ve separated the sleeves from the body and […]

Just taking inventory

May 14, 2012 Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater

Sigh. I have a lot of projects that I am working on and not enough time in the day. I decided to actually take a little inventory about things I am knitting and came up with this list: Cable baby Sweater – knitting is done. Need to sew on the snap band I made. Lazy! […]
