Now that long Halloween is finally over…

November 9, 2007

Hooray for November. No more insane hours at work. Hooray for return of sanity (well, almost).

I didn’t exactly do whole lot since the last post. In fact, the pink stripey (supposedly a stashbuster) is on indefinite hold due to shortage of yarn – yes, so the stashbusting idea totally backfired. I did start on another pair of socks though – started a pair of Dublin Bay with my insane lime-salmon J-Knits from the stash.


Let see, what else have I done in October…. Ah, I did manage to make a wee chef coat for one of my coworker’s little boy. I wish I could’ve taken better pictures but.. he just learned to walk not too long ago and now he’s running around everywhere and super fast! He’s making Speedy Gonzalez look like Regular Gonzalez! (Thank you Futurama)

Oh and have I mentioned that this is super image-heavy post?

And before I go, I need to give big hugs, wet kisses, and endless thank you to Ariel and Tania for insanely generous gifts! Tania sent me a breathtakingly gorgeous skein of Brooks Farm Acero, and Ariel sent me a skein of STR Lightweight (now I guess I’ll know what it is that makes STR as addicting as crack) and a very batty sock bag. Thank you, thank you, thank you girls!



More sewing

August 21, 2007

Oh I really haven’t been doing much lately – definitely no knitting for oh, almost a week now, if not more.

I did manage to make a bag though.

Yeah, you can totally see me holding on to the remote to my camera. And here are rest of my dorky self-photo session.

I like the way it turned out. Well, after all, it’s exactly same bag as for the one I made for Andrea a while ago. The only (and major) difference is that this has a magnetic snap closure rather than d rings – which I think is more substantial and usable!
And… I am working on making more of those sock pouch/bag things. It’s going pretty slowly but steady.

On that note, I think this may be time for bed. You know, it’s only 3 AM already 😀

Sock knitting bag, maybe?

August 12, 2007

I’m actually breaking the habit of one (ok, sometimes two) post per month, and decide to make another post for August! How exciting! Honestly, I usually only work one project at a time, so I don’t have whole lot of WIP discussion or whatnot. I start it, and I finish it. Not much there to talk about really. Eh. Anyhow – here’s my accomplishment of yesterday evening.

It’s a zip up pouch, just big enough to carry a small knitting project, like a pair of socks. Or, any other junk I suppose. It’s a plain bag with zipper pull on top. I suppose one can fill it up with make-up, candies, or something something, bah, who cares. But at the end, it was my original intention to make it in sock-knitting friendly size, so there it goes. And here goes the lining:

So, that’s my creation for Saturday.

What today was like…

August 10, 2007

I’m actually taking a long weekend off for once. And to start it off, I finally made a trip over to the post office and mailed out my Sockapalooza socks. Once my pal gets the socks, I’ll be revealing not-so-secret socks I made for my pal! How (vaguely) exciting! 😉 Hopefully it fits, and she likes them.

Afterwards, Chris and I drove around and around, which was nice and relaxing – it’s something we haven’t done for very long time. It was nice and sunny – okay, maybe bit too hot, but wasn’t terribly bad.

Then, we made a quick run over to a fabric store. I didn’t find anything overly exciting, but I did find this:


Oh and when we came home, I found this beauty in the mailbox!

I entered a contest over at Fee‘s blog and I was one of the runner-up’s. These are the most adorable wee stitch markers ever! Thank you Fee!

So, that pretty much sums up today. Just another not-manic Friday.

Again, stuff from last month…

August 2, 2007

I really need to break this habit of making something and posting it a month afterwards. But once again, here they are. I present you, stuff!

First of all, Another circular needle holder, made for Zyllah. And sort of matching stitch markers.

And a pair of socks for Carol. Yes, it’s Hedera again.
And, yes, I finished with my Sockapalooza socks. But no, I rather keep it under wraps until I send them out. Why? Because I’m just nuts like that. Also, as for Knittyboard sock swap, as of right now I’m about inch or so down on the second sock. (Hi Amanda!) And no, I will not discuss the further details on it either. Why? .. again, I’m that nuts.

Well, that was fun.
