Its coming along!

Its about 8 inches in. I swear it looks like more in person! Hehe!

A bit of a close up so you can see that there is a pattern. Its going to look like 4 squares surrounded by a border. Cute!

I've restarted the damn blanket 3x now. My last project was ribbed and I keep on going back to that instead of seed. EEEEEK.

Breathe, and wait until I get home to try again.


Big Bad Baby Blanket

So, I've started the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stich and Bitch. Its for my good friend who is due to give birth in May! Well, the end of May.

This is the first post seperated from my LiveJournal, since it is a suprise.

Her favourite colour is purple, so I went with LionBrand Homespun Baby in Soft Violet. Its really pretty. I bought 8 skeins, at least I can get it locally, even if it is a different dyelot! Sheesh. Mmm...machine washable!

Update on Tempting: Its a hit at work! Everyone is saying kind things about it! It looks great off of the shoulders, but I wore it up today so I can wear a regular bra (like in the pic).

A month later, I have a Tempting!

Photos sure do humble me, I forget how "big" I am. Ugh. I'm working on it *sigh* At least the sweater is nice! Its actually kind of big! Heh!

Ugh. Not again!

Guess who is going to run out of yarn AGAIN? Grr, 300 yards extra and I won't be able to finish the top space. It will be done, but not to specs. I won't be able to wear it how I want either. Dammit.

Whoever sent the yarn monster to eat half of my yarn is going to die a horrible death. That or the designer was on CRACK.

I never said no nudity!

Well, I'm waiting on my yarn, bored and making little squares to assemble into slippers. I can't start the baby blanket because I need the 40" cord, and of course I can't get that until Saturday.

My yarn didn't come today, but I tried Tempting on for the first time. It will be lower, not so sheer (well, its not when there's no flash dammit), and the sleeves will come down. Seriously, I have 5 inches to go!

Its so Tempting.

So I've been working on Tempting from Knitty for about 3 weeks.

Yarn: Schachenmayr Aurora, in Navy/Marine bought at Its a very pretty ribbon cotton/acrylic yarn.

The yardage in the on the pattern is OFF. I've had to reorder yarn, because I KNOW I won't be done. Grrrrr.

Here's a pic from a few weeks ago. Since then I've attached the sleeves and I'm working on the yoke. Woo!

Don't be so jealous of my crappy pic! I hope to have this finished by the end of January. Depends on when my yarn gets here and when I can work on it!

Next up: Baby Blanket (Big Bad Baby Blanket, from Stitch and Bitch).

Yes, I needed a knitting blog.

So I resurrected my "old" blogger account so I can have a knitting blog. I'm such a geek.

Lets catch up, shall we? How about xmas 04?
