Purple Rain!

I finally finished this hat and scarf set for a dear sister in my old English congregation. Done in a week!

Things are looking up! I’m just doing what I need to do and hoping for the best.

So knitting fun. I need to finish my mom’s sweater pictured below:

I just need to finish the ribbing and the sleeves! I can’t wait to be done. It’s based off the $5 Dollars in Paris pattern on Ravelry. This is a great versatile raglan sweater pattern.

And also, today is a Music Monday. Go listen to MNEK right now!

 

 

I’m going to try this again…

So I tried to keep a blog right? How did that work? It didn’t. So I’m going to try this again. Fridays will be my blogging day where I’ll update you guys on my knitting projects. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to lately…

I’ll do better photos next Friday. Does anyone know some good, free sock patterns for worsted weight yarn?

Xoxo,

I hate when…

My knitting gets in the way if other things. Like I totally need to be focusing on schoolwork and practicals and I’ve been wasting time on this beautiful pattern. It’s called Abalone (look it up on ravelry!) I want to finish it so badly but I need to put it down and do more important things so badly too. Gah. Choices are so hard to make. Fashion and failing or…. Work?

Recent Knitting Projects…

I just got back from a trip from Bay Shore, Long Island, New York. It was a wonderful break from my school life and general life. I haven’t had a real, get away vacation in two years because of my surgery. On this one, we took two trips to the city, took a Bible tour, had an intriguing look at my rich, religious history. Then at the MET, we took an Integrity tour which was really encouraging. It showed the correlation between Greek culture, its influences on modern day culture, and how we can avoid some of the negative effects of this influence. Then we walked around the MET and took pictures all around.

I did quite a bit of knitting. I finished some great projects. I started a mistake rib scarf from a gorgeous yarn I got from an A. C. Moore on Long Island.

Love it! I can’t wait until its finished. I also finished two hats that I can add to my donation list.

I’m feeling really happy about this. I also just started my own Abalone cardigan. I don’t have a picture yet but I’ll post as that project looks less like a blob.

Ciao homies!

Vesty for my Bestie

I need this in my life. Will I ever have time to knit it?…..

No-Law Knits

If I’m being a smart knitter, a prudent knitter, a practical knitter, then I have a pattern in mind when I go into the yarn store and I buy the perfect gauge and precise amount of yarn I’ll need for my well-planned project. That happens about one out of every six time I go to the yarn store. More often then not, I wander through the store picking up skeins here and there telling myself I’m sure to find the perfect project for each tomorrow afternoon. It’s not often I find the perfect project. I have a large yarn stash. But recently, I did a grand thing and found the perfect project for some Knit Picks Billow chunky cotton I bought on a bit of a whim a few months ago. (It was on SALE. How could I not?) And now, my friends, I give you my racerback vest!

Look at this beauty! Look at this beauty!
