These are the seven mini skeins that I did they are about 66 yards a piece. I figure that is enough to keep me going a little bit on my blanket. :)
I still can't dye without getting it all over myself and my kitchen. Thank God for Windex (which works better than bleach for some reason).
This is what I've been working on lately...
Ok ok here's the hexagon blanket...
I started a hexagon blanket from my leftover sock yarn. It will be a long going work in progress seeing as I don't have many leftovers, yet. It's funny because now that I am enjoying the hook wielding again I am wanting to just kind of start sneaking in the sock yarn that hasn't been used yet. I've been holding off for the time being, but I just have sooo many pretty sock yarn colors it will be hard to keep out. I guess I need to start whipping out the socks. :)
Look I have pictures! You may have already seen these, if you have been perusing my flickr account. I put them up a couple of nights ago intending to write a post and then got a migraine. So, the post had to wait.
The first FO of the year! This is the Quickie Cowl. It has actually been sewn up and finished for a week, but I haven't taken pics of it yet. This is going to go to my boss, because she knits scarves for people all the time and has yet to get anything in return. I really like this pattern, it is easy and cute.
My mom bought me sock monkey making socks!!! Woot! I am sooo happy about this. The big sock monkey my great grandmother made me is missing (we think I sold it in a garage sale a long long time ago with the scary clown dolls--long story). But now I can make my own, yay!
I got my FO 2007 book finished and back from Qoop
It looks pretty amazing. I have to admit my photography skills have greatly improved. I am still wishing for more natural light to enter my apartment, but for now it is ok.
I am really happy with the Qoop products and decided to try out the cards this time around. I like them a lot!
Sorry this pic is grainy I didn't want to use the flash. I should have scanned it, but was being lazy. :) Aren't these cool? I should have ordered more.
Ok I have a busy day of reading for classes and going to a stitching group. I will chat more later. Have a great Saturday everyone!
P.S. My birthday is on Monday so I may be too busy with festivities to post for a few days.
p.s. I am feeling better and am going to try going to school tonight.
I am feeling better though. Still coughing up stuff with one hurt ear, but better. I'm thinking about going to work tomorrow, but seeing as it is supposed to be snowing, maybe I'll wait until Thursday. I still need to practice being vertical. I figure I'll try going to class tomorrow night, if only for the first half. Get all the introduction yada yada and then sneak out before a coughing fit begins. Even though I feel up to doing things I hate going out in public when I'm still coughing up stuff. It is just plain gross and no one should have to be witness to it all day (like my coworkers). But, they are pretty much used to it by now. At least the pregnant one is on maternity leave now so I don't have to worry about making her sick.
Ok enough with the sick talk. I've been knitting on my Lombard Street socks. Yeah I finally picked them up again. They had previously been tagged for the frog pond, but the yarn screamed for mercy not to be ripped again and I decided to grant its wish. I didn't really have the will to start something new so I decided to work on these. I needed something to keep me busy. I got some stuff in the mail this week that I need to share too, but that will have to wait for another time. I've got to get out of the house now so they can come spray.
