Memes and quizzes

Because I really don't have much else to post about - aside from playing with GarageBand (thanks to copy and paste, I now have 2 guitars!) I finished the Razor Cami, but I'm going to add an edging and then find someone to take a picture of me wearing it so I can post it. Now it's back to the Rowan Sweater which has been languishing all year. And some socks. Maybe another Claptois....

Fig And Plum had a great post asking about Etsy stores. Here are some of the ones I particularly liked:

Just a quick post

It's been hectic lately between the new job (which I love) and dating (meh) and trips with friends (woohoo! Bring on the wine!). But, in very exciting news, I'm this close to being done with the Razor Cami. And I love it (I tried it on last night) All that's left is for me to knit the straps and an edging and weave in ends. But I'm really thrilled with how it's turning out (in other words, I may actually wear it)

Which begs the question - what knitting do I bring home with me?

I can't stand it.

Razor Cami and other WIPs

Still plugging away on the Razor Cami - it's going faster than I though. I may finish it by my birthday :) (Not that it matters - a camisole in Northern California doesn't strike me as proper Thanksgiving attire) (Yes, my birthday is on Thanksgiving this year. 3rd time I can remember it happening)

I've also been doing a little spinning - still working on getting an even thickness :)

The start of Intolerable Cruelty from Knitty. Mmmm....tweed.

I also learned the proper way to spell segue thanks to yummyyarn. All this time :)

Stitchy McYarnpants

Seriously? Stitchy McYarnpants? Where has this name been all of my knitting career? It amuses me in the same way my friend reading "CO 16 sts and knit in st st for 10 rows" said "Come on with 16 stitches and knit in stitchy stitchy for 10 rows"

I still die laughing about it.

It's almost as good as Threadbared.

In other news, I'm beginning to question my knitting style. I thought I knit good old-fashioned Continental (since my mom, who taught me, is German). But looking at the diagrams on this site I'm wondering if I a) knit Eastern or b) was at some point knitting Continental and just morphed it into Eastern/Combined....

The sock gets a good view

Monday, November 06, 2006


This weekend was spent camping, and in Harlot fashion, sock pictures were taken. This is what happens when 3 knitters go camping :) Pictures to come soon!
