I am in love with this site. The patterns are amazing, although they are sometimes hard to read. I'm making a cabled/ruffled neckwarmer from there right now. Its so pretty! I have also recently been introduced to the world of knitting podcasts. I really wished I would have looked for them a while ago when I was looking up harry potter podcasts. I was there for the beginning of pottercast and mugglecast and am still a faithful listener of both. If you haven't subscribed to them you should (if you want to do one, go with pottercast they are a little more grown up ) Anyways, on with the knitting and craft podcasts. I have subscribed and listened to all of the episodes so far of Lime and Violet, Cast on, Just Linda online knitting, Craftychica, craftsanity, the mosh knit, Crochet cast. So you may ask, why do you have so many stinking podcasts Dana? Well the answer to that my friends is that my job is boring and I need fun stuff to listen to. Podcasts are sooo fun. Its sad that you listen to them and feel as if you know these people, but I guess that is part of the charm. They are normal people just like me who decided to pick up a mic and talk to others about their hobbies and obsessions. I must say that lime and violet are my faves though, they are stinking hilarious and completely honest about how horrible some yarn stores can be (we all know its true). Cast on is next because Brenda Dayne is goddess of all that is knitted and her voice is soo soothing. The mosh knit has great music and brooklynn is fantastic. These people are just too crafty. I love it! I'm ready for some of them to update, now that I have listened to all of the back episodes.
I have made some great stuff this week for a swap so I can't post pics yet. But be ready for hello kitty greatness. I've been on a roll and wanted to keep it all for myself. My sock book is coming in tomorrow hopefully. So I can work on dad's socks after I get it. Saturday is the southside hooker meeting so I shall work on them then. I need to buy more yarn for the baby blanket. I found out she is having a boy so I can buy an edging color now. What else... I made a hello kitty doll that has been faceless for a week. I'll post pictures when she doesn't look so scary.
I finally found some good textile paint that will help me remake john's major victory shirt. I'll probably work on that Friday night.
I made some really easy and self designed (yay) wrist warmers for a lady at work. I will post about these and put up a pattern tomorrow.
I'm finding it very hard to keep this blog up along with my xanga, facebook, myspace, and post on craftster. How do people do it? If you read this and find your blogging to be successful, please help a newbie. I've kept up my xanga for like 5 years now, but can't seem to keep up with my crafting escapades. I would really like to turn this into an awesome website, but lack the time, skill and money to do so. Eventually, Eventually...
