I wish I had more to say, or that I could make scintillating blog posts, but I've never been able to do that so I'm not surprised that I haven't gained that ability as I've aged.


So last weekend I cast on a new sock. Simple striped sock, 4 each yarn, black Cascade Heritage Sock & Wisdom Yarns Poem Sock in Tropical Sunset.

This is the fastest I've ever knit a sock in my life, I think... LOL Casting on the second sock tonight. I doubt it'll be finished as fast as the first, but we'll see how that goes...

I received another block in the mail from LSG quilter Amysbabies, but she decided that since she was dropping out of the swap, she didn't want to send out the fabric & such for her TARDIS block. I am very sad :(

Instead, I sewed together 4 blocks I received from the LSG quilters' bee swap and 2 that I made myself, and this is what I came up with:
Looks pretty good to me... think I'll stay on this path, yes? LOL I need about 10 more blocks to get the size that I'm looking for before sashing, binding, etc.

Alright, got to get a move on... casting on rainbow socks today, wheeeee!

Well, I managed to finish 2 items this week. This one was started last and finished first... I call it my Scowl of Doom (it's a scarf-like thing that I made into a mobius cowl). It is made out of some of my first handspun, actually my first hand dyed, personally drum carded, hand spun yarn. I'm pretty proud of it. All the yarn was dyed and/or spun at separate times, there was no planning involved in getting any of it to match. Worked out pretty damned well.


The second project, I'm really kinda embarrassed about this one. I cast this project on in March... of 2008. It is now March 2011. 3 years for a pair of fingerless mitts? Bad me, no biscuit! It is made from Sundara yarn Silky Merino in the colorway "Bittersweet". I got it for my birthday in 2007.

I'm making a goal to post at least once a week.

November 2010. For the lovely Aimee, she asked for a very specific block and sent pieces that were pretty much already pre-cut. All I had to do was assemble them. It felt very much like cheating.

December 2010 Jan 2011. This was a 2 month block in order to give people time to do the blocks around the holidaze. I was done on January 1st. Bringing quilting into the new year, baybee!

Amylynnknits's block

February's block for NutellaNutterson officially hurt my brain. Random is hard for me to do... but random AND wonky? Yeah. But! After I finished it, I liked the end product enough to consider doing a small lap sized throw in the far future.

I haven't gotten the fabric in for March's block yet... I'm supposed to be next in line for AmysBabies, and the block is a TARDIS block! I can't wait :)
