Finished Object Friday

I'm back again, and with MORE finished objects! The first one this week was a request from Ash, a black Pussy Hat. For those of you unfamiliar, the Pussy Hat Project starts with an extremely simple hat with a flat, seamed top to form cat ears. These hats can come in all colors, but are… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Knitting Break

It's  been a while since we had one of these, hasn't it? Well, now that the holidays are over, I can share some of the gifts I made. These socks are, once again, Hermione's Everyday Socks, but they're also a Christmas gift. I made them ankle socks, per the recipient's preference. The yarn is one… Continue reading Knitting Break

Stress Knitting Finished Objects

With all these socks I've been knitting, I guess you could say I've really been stepping it up, huh? It felt so good to get these teal socks off the needles. I started them way back in July, as one of my village crafting projects. I worked on them off and on, but my new character… Continue reading Stress Knitting Finished Objects

Current Projects and Finished Objects

I finally finished a few things! Not overly exciting, but I made a dishcloth. Plain, simple, straight up crochet. Function, and it gave my brain a rest when it needed it.  Bog standard pattern for me, just trying to use up the last of my crochet cotton. Slightly more interesting, we move into the WIP… Continue reading Current Projects and Finished Objects

Last Day of Vacation

The parental units will be back either this evening or tomorrow, so I'm enjoying my last day of unlimited internet and being able to listen to loud music at 11:30 pm (that's the best part of being in the country--the neighbors are too far away to hear). I've been incredibly lazy, but also quite productive.… Continue reading Last Day of Vacation

Vader for Prez

There's hasn't been much going on around here--the only things I could write about would involve me complaining, and we don't want that. For this reason, this will probably be a short post. I started a new crochet project last night, but I'm going to have to frog it because as Alice pointed out, it… Continue reading Vader for Prez

Weaving in Ends

M'kay. So I'm maybe a little bit behind in my photo-taking. Last night I FINALLY sat down and wove in the ends on the Medusa Shawl. I also finished the Turkish Rib scarf, added the fringe and wove in my ends. For some reason, that last little bit of yarn came out of Hammer Space,… Continue reading Weaving in Ends

Knitting and Tension

Well, it took me long enough, but here is the finished image for the Edinburgh hat. I have yet to take a finished photo of the Draco Gloves/Mittens with Attitude because it is rather hard to operate a camera while photographing both of one's hands. They're just boring sitting on a table. And as soon… Continue reading Knitting and Tension

Cabled Laptop Cozy

I'm only a little behind. This is the "finished" image of my laptop cozy. I've attempted several times to make one in the past, but it always ended up frogged. This time around, I was determined to make it work. Stats: Times frogged: 4 for this attempt, at least twelve overall. Yarn: 1 skane of… Continue reading Cabled Laptop Cozy

Welcome to Scotland

Edinburgh is amazing. I adore it here. I understand now why this is where so many authors have chosen to live. This morning we went to the St. James shopping center to look around. It's much more enjoyable when I'm not ready to pass out. We walked quite a ways down Princes street, looking in… Continue reading Welcome to Scotland
