oh, deadlines..

So I am officially a BAD FRIEND. I had one piece of deadline knitting, only one, and I still managed to bypass the deadline. I waved goodbye to it yesterday, as the friend who was visiting town left without the socks that I was going to surprise him with. The goal was to send them …

OWLS. (and babies)

So I have something of an obsession with owls. I don’t know why this is, but I find them adorable and interesting and altogether wonderful in their owlishness. Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that there is a cable pattern that looks EXACTLY like an owl. Add to that, it’s simple, and well …

Geeky Knitting

So I’ve been thinking about something this lady posted a while back. She was talking about how knitting is a bit geeky, in that knitting is something that involves design and contruction, learning a lot about a (relatively) esoteric subject, with lots of different and unusual techniques, etc. etc. I’m just paraphrasing, she said it much …

Come and get it!

Dear Internets, I am slightly ecstatic to say that I have (finally) stopped lollygagging around and have posted my first pattern on Ravelry. It has instructions and charts and everything! I took my flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants half-assed design, with no notes or anything, and turned it into a real, repeatable pattern. Provided, of course, that people actually …

An original design.

Now, please forgive me in advance for the crappy pictures. I promise, this hurts me more than it hurts you 😛 These had to be photographed in a hurry the night before they were given as a gift, so the lighting is less than ideal. I knitted these up in an evening as a birthday …

The guilt is working

Hey blog! Lookee here… That handsome fellow is a toe and three pattern repeats on the second sock. He’s even prettier than his predecessor, though due to the magic of self-striping yarn, they will at least be nearly identical twins. He is artistically posed upon my headboard, where he thinks he looks quite grand, and …

Truly shocking.

So this is sort of knitting related. I was talking to my mom about the knitted Christmas presents that people are getting. My brother is getting a knitted bowtie, and I told her that I wanted to make Dad some socks, but that he only liked one brand of nasty sweat-inducing acrylic socks. To which …

Bit by the bug.

Earlier this summer, I came across a lovely pattern for a feather and fan scarf. I fell in love, and promptly went out, bought yarn, and cast on. After happily knitting away on this for a while, I realized that I had been thoroughly bitten by the lace bug. This pernicious little insect has caused …

The lonely sock on the windowsill

Look at that poor little sock. He’s been sitting around for weeks, complete but for a quick kitchener stitch to close his toe. To add insult to injury, he’s all alone. I haven’t given him his other half, and he has to sit in my knitting basket with all those other smug projects and balls …
