A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

And Now Some Pictures...

I have been in a knitting frenzy for the last month or so. I've started a knitting group that meets once a month and I joined the Seattle Stitch N' Bitch.

I made a few stuffed animals from Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys. I made the dolphin (which looks more like a shark) and a cat.

I thought the cat looked a little plain. It's a Christmas gift for my best friend's daughter. So I added a collar with a rhinestone "C" on it.

I made a Booga bag for myself recently and love it. These bags are really fast and easy and they look great. I get stopped every time I go to my LYS. People want to know all about how I made my fabulous bag. My best friend was admiring it so I made one for her for Christmas too.

Last night I nearly finished a sock I've been working on for the last week. I wanted to try a project on really small needles so I made a Basic Ribbed Sock from Vogue on the go! Socks Two. I used some Regia Cotton Plus that I got off the sale shelf and size 1 dpn's. It was really slow going at first but a worthwhile learning experience. I still need to kitchener stitch the toe together.

I'm waiting on some Kureyon #115 I bought on eBay the night before last to get started on Rosedale II from the fall Knitty.

I did some blocking last night for a Punk Rock Backpack from Debbie Stoller's awesome book Stitch 'N Bitch. Hopefully I'll get all the blocking and sewing done in the next day or so.
