Third Time Lucky!

Well hopefully you guys might be reading this, my third attempt to get something on here!!! My computer hasn't been behaving! Just to say a HUGE thankyou for such a warm response to just titles so far!! I'm VERY excited to have found this place to share my knitting-related thoughts, joys and frustrations!! My mother taught me basic stitches when I was just into my teens, and I managed to put together a few scarves and a VERY basic sweater made from rectangles of garter stitch...I seem to remember it looking quite cool under dungarees (EEK!!!). A girlfriend of mine started to knit a couple of years ago, and I picked up some needles one evening with her and haven't stopped since!!

Beowulf scarf done

So, this summer I whipped up a scarf. Fancy that. I deisgned the rudimentary pattern. There is more info on my blog... except Blogger just ate my post. So there WILL be more info there.

 

 

 

Finally Some Time Off

I finally get two days off in a row. It is about time...

This means I am going to get some long over due knitting in... I hope to knit for at least 4 hours each day.

Which is good since it is getting close to christmas and it is time to start working on christmas gifts for family....

well I am off to knit everyone have a good weekend.

Airing My Dirty Knitting

First, my sincerest appologies to all you guys for avoiding this site for awhile.  I feel very close to alot of you and it has been unfair for me not to respond to your emails and PMs.  I'm ashamed of myself.

Next, since there are far to many of you to write the same thing to and since it's public knowledge here in Dallas it might as well be around the world.

As many of you know my Grandmother passed in July and again I thank you for all you condolances and kind words.  However, two days after I got back from that horrid, horrid experience Jim told me he was leaving me after 6 1/2 years of what I never suspected was a relationship gone sour.  That brick hit an already bruised head from behind.  If I had seen it coming towards me it would have been easier to take.

illusion knitting

I have recently started to try llusion knitting, but i still don't understand how it works so if anyone here knows how it works could you please explain it to me.

Been Too Long

It has been to long since writting here... and it is not because I have forgotten the page... It is just that i have gone back to work after vaction... Which has been pure hell and long hours.... I have had one day off since the 5th of sept. and have work 9 hour days except for the 12 hour shifts which there was four of them....

The good thing that comes out of this is the money... However I have only knit two dish clothes in the last two weeks... Which sucks.. I  use to knit at least three a when I was working... but work has been to much and has drained me.... To the point where most days I do not want to knit when I get home...

Looking for "skull cap" pattern

Getting holiday projects ready, a friend of mine wants a cap like Muslim men wear. It's not really just a short ski cap-- and wonder if anyone has come across such a pattern. Please let me know.

First sweater!

Well, I am pretty new to this group and I havn't posted anything. Here it goes. I havn't been knitting very long (total 16 months) and up until now I have only knitted small items. Because I am temporarily living in Japan, my projects must stay small (yarn costs about 2 times as much)

 Well, I finally broke down and bought enough yarn to do a sweater. It is not a terribly original design (see scull sweater in Stitch & Bitch book) but I like it. Wish me luck...
