FO and Finger Knitting

January 3, 2009

I’m extremely happy, since I finished my Abby cowl.  It took long enough, but it turned out beautifully, so that’s good news.

I also started finger knitting, since I was bored and couldn’t go to my LYS to get the yarn for Fetching, which looks like fun.  I finger knitted New Year’s Day, when I was bored and had nothing to do, and I finer knitted last night, at my friend’s house while playing Life with Visa cards.  That was very enjoyable.  Not so enjoyable was slipping down her stairs.  I’m fine now, just a little bruised.

Today I have to do a ton of homework, since I’ll be at Medieval Times tomorrow.  Hopefully I’ll still be able to make it to my LYS for that yarn, and the needles I need.

Happy Saturday,

It’s picture day!  I finally have pictures of a couple of FOs, as well as my current WIP, Abby.

The 2×2 Rib Scarf


Close-up of the 2×2 Rib Scarf.  The colors are actually closer to the first picture, but not quite that neon.


Abby- here you can see the lace-y spiraling holes.


Another picture of Abby- I didn’t know how well it was turning out until I saw this picture.  Love how it looks!

Knitting: My Favorite Scarf

November 26, 2008

I just finished the best. Scarf. Ever.  Now, you may have seen the Yarn Harlot’s posts about the Noro scarf; supposedly the most fascinating 1×1 rib ever.  I’ve never made a Noro scarf, but the satisfaction that came when I was finished with an easy, chunky, soft, warm scarf had to be better than any Noro scarf.  Picture it:  Size 17 needles.  Chunky red-orange-yellow-purple in a non-pukey combination, along with a sproingy fall yellow.  Softest acrylic you’ve ever seen.  A scarf that just grows from the needles.  That, is an amazing scarf.


Now it’s back to Abby, a more difficult but probably just as satisfying cowl.

Knitting: Squee!

November 11, 2008

I am so so so so so so so HAPPY!  I finally got to go to my lovely LYS today, to buy amazing yarn for a fabulous pattern.  The complete awesomeness of this day was compacted when I logged on to the computer and saw that 1)my old blog is STILL getting comments.  I haven’t written on that one in months.  and 2) I’ve had a bunch of views on my brand new blog.  Mostly thanks to the my review of Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz(Scroll down for it).  I am so completely happy right now!

Anyway.  I’m going to quit gushing and tell you about the fabulous yarn I just bought (with a gift card!  I didn’t actually pay for it!).  It is RowanKidsilk Haze, in a funky blue-green color.  What’s it for?  Abby, a really cool looking cowl(rav it).  The only bad thing about this cowl?  It will cover up my newly dyed RED hair.  And I’m not talking ginger red.  It is fire-engine red.  Yowza!  It’s not my whole head, just the top.  But still.  It’s so cool.

I wish I could post pictures, but unfortunately the rechargeable batteries in my camera died.  Completely.  No more recharging.  So, until I get new batteries, the poor blog will be picture-less.  Oh well.

Off to knit!
