Hey look, I'm blogging! I didn't plan on blogging just now, but... well, here's the conversation I just had with Krystal via im:
Krystal Grams: yeah. you NEED to blog
Krystal Grams: stop knitting
Krystal Grams: blog
Krystal Grams: now
Krystal Grams: go
Krystal Grams: lol
Angie Ferrier: Grrr... but... but... but... SOCKS!
Angie Ferrier: *cracks up*
Krystal Grams: *cracks up* no. put them down. blog
Angie Ferrier: *growls and goes to get batteries for the camera*
Krystal Grams: *laugh* thank you
And now I'm blogging. It isn't that I didn't WANT to blog (or that I do everything that Krystal tells me to. Far from it. lol), but it's that I enjoy knitting much much more. But she's right. I really need to blog.
So here's what I've been working on:
Pattern: Minttumaari-huivi from Ulla. (How cute is that little dress on the main page??) It's in Finnish but you really just need to know how to work from a chart. And just barely that. Very easy
Yarn: The absolutely beautiful Zephyr that Krystal got me for Christmas. I had to tweak the photo a little in photoshop to get the true color and that screwed around with the color of everything else, but at least the shawl looks good. lol
Pattern: Loksins. Yes, same pattern Krystal is doing for her second sock syndrome KAL. I'm attempting to light a fire under her butt by injecting a little friendly competition. Not only that but it's a gorgeous pattern I've been meaning to knit for awhile now.
Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks
Pattern: Miss Dashwood. Here I've done about half of the cast on. The irritating, bobbly, crazy-making cast on. Miss O is going to be beautiful in this (not as if she isn't already beautiful). I think some little star or heart shaped sunglasses and some sunscreen will be just the thing to give her with this hat. Do they make baby sunglasses? Hmmm....
Yarn: Cotton-Ease in lime
There. That's everything interesting I've been knitting. There's also a plain sock in some really ugly Regia sock yarn and some boot liners for Dylan done in acrylic that makes me want to weep... but these are the projects I love the most. Hence, the ones you get to see! Ok, now I'm off to work on my Loksins.
