I can’t believe it!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:47 am by mystrawberrylane

 

 Wow!! I can’t believe it! (and pardon the crappy pix, Mister Gamer Man was busy saving the world playing Rainbow Six so I had to take my own pix)

My very first sweater, the lovely, the gorgeous, The Somewhat Cowl. Man! I have NEVER knit so fast in my life!  You are looking at 4 days worth of knitting! I am not a fast knitter guys…. This is an accomplishment.

 

 

The bad news….. it takes 6 hanks and I only have 2 =-(

I’m almost thru the 2nd hank =*-(

Woe is me!  =-(

I sorta planned it this way but now I’m regretting it. I had these 2 hanks lying around with no real plans for them, and then decided to go ahead with this pattern.  That way, I would run out of yarn by the Olympics and not be tempted to weasle out of my sock knitting. Well who knew slowy-slowhands-knitter would get sooooooo gung ho and bust it out so fast. It helped that my husband asked smart-assily “Are you actually going to finish that?”

I just got soooo exremely excited about this.

Maybe because it’s the first REAL object I’ve knitted myself.  Maybe because I’ve spent so much time knitting for other people.  But maybe it’s because this yarn is INSANELY luxurious!!

It’s also real nice to knit stockinette after lace and shaping. I can watch TV and knit along all at the same time!  I’m really loving the top-down raglan, it’s awesome!

Threaded Bliss Olympic Buttons

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:27 pm by mystrawberrylane

Stopped by Threaded Bliss yesterday to pick up some needles and ended up just hanging out for about an hour. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my LYS. Everyone should have a place this cool to go to. It’s a dream come true.

So Sheila was telling me she’s setting up a site for Team Threaded Bliss for the Knitting Olympics and she needed a button. So I’ve got 3 of them I hope everyone likes them.

I’m going with button #1!!!

Olympics

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:33 pm by mystrawberrylane

No pics right now – I wanted to post pix of my new koigu (my first Koigu) yarn and my first picot edging at the begining of my first socks (but I haven’t taken pics yet!).  I am knitting Amelia Raitte’s version of Grumperina’s Jaywalkers. (she does the picot edging instead of ribbing).

Knitting Olympics

 This is also what I chose for the knitting Olympics.  I’m not cheating, I am knitting 2 pair, one now and one later.  So by the Olympics I will already have a feel for the pattern. I am entering the Knitting Olympics as an attempt to get out there in the blog world and be apart of something. No one reads my blog yet =( and I need to made some friends.

 

In other procrastinatory knitting news, I meant to post a pic of the “Purse Couture” I made for my Mother, an extreme variation on the Sophie.  It’s so cute! I need to get a pic and post it, it’s one of the few monumental things I have to write about!!
