Blahblahblah dialup internet blahblahblah. Are you tired of hearing me complain yet? I might try to update once a week from hereon out, but it means getting my shit together at the house first, then going to the library to upload everything. I really am starting to hate my computer, a little bit – did I mention it’s like.. 8 years old? I think sometimes I’ll try to open a website and it just laughs at me on principle.
So here’s what I’ve done since ‘You Devil’s release.
First, there was all this drama about some gloves.
(Which are knitted in Lang Yarn’s Jawoll Magic, which I don’t really recommend for socks, even though it *is* a sock yarn.)
Wherein I knitted the first glove, with full fingers. Alas, I knitted the fingers too short. So I crocheted some little bits in between the fingers so it would feel right, even if it didn’t look right, because I am *that* lazy. And then, I fast forwarded the yarn to the right spot to cast on, so that the gloves would math (because that yarn is self striping, and they were actually coming out nice, so I decided to make them match for once..) and let me tell you something.
THE COLORS DIDN’T FADE AT THE SAME RATE.
I got so frustrated at this crap… just ask my sister how bad it was. We started talking about Lord of the Rings, just to get my mind off of it.
See? This is how bad my brain was. Nonetheless, I kept knitting, then removed the tips from the other glove, and called them done.
I finished a pair of socks I’ve had on the needles since JANUARY.
(yarn is Knit One, Crochet Too Ty Dy socks.)
They are slightly too big, and that is the bad part about knitting Toe Up, I never get it right. However the yarn is CRAZY soft. Also, I remembered why I hate charted knitting so much.
Then, I took some pics of my thrummed mittens, just because I could, even though I finished them in Sept.
And I got pissed off because they aren’t as warm I had hoped. I’m toying with the idea of fulling them.
And then I knitted myself a new hat.
And um. That;s about it.
In other news, I’m currently almost a teacher for JoAnnes, which means I’ll get to teach people knitting along with other crafts. Also, I have exactly one week to finish a HogsWatch gift for my friend Bambi, and also I may be teaching Tahkli Spinning at a fiber festival next April.
And my awesome sister sent me a Tahkli Spindle for Hanukkah, and here it is:
I think I should update more often, so I can tell more about whats going on, and less about the things I have made.
