School Blues, Reds and Greens

Standard

I know, I know, I havn’t posted in days. I’ve thoroughly given up on daily posting! I shall simple post when I have something interesting πŸ™‚ Although I’m sure you’ve noticed by now the new page up top? ^^ “WIP Workroom” is where I’ll keep a record of all of my WIP’s (“Works in Progress” for you non-ravelry users) just in case your curious πŸ™‚

I’ve started school and feel thoroughly confused and lost in it, but that is to be expected…during the first week πŸ™‚
I’m sure by now some of you are wondering about the title…well at least the colorful parts πŸ™‚ Well then lets shake things up a bit shall we? Lets start at the very end (a very good place to start).

Green – I’ve been stuck at the heel flap of my Ribbed Ribbons socks I told you about in my last post because of some crazy counting reasons (“Down With The Calculator” is NOT a good campaign, I’ve proven it) and they are very very Green.

Now lets skip to the beginning.

Blues – See “Greens”, they make me blue πŸ™‚

Reds – O.0 ….. You expected me to have a purpose for everything? …Oh…Woops… πŸ™‚

Now some unrelated colors that I DO have a purpose for!

Beige – I’m not sure if any of you were even aware that I finished my September designers challenge AND Wrote up the pattern AND got it tested AND am currently making the page for it on Ravelry as I wait for just a sniffle more info from a tester (Sniffle = Triffle =Smidgen =itsy bit) …aren’t you proud of me?

Pretty, Huh?

Just in case youd like to know, the challenge was to create a:

Object:Bag
Theme:Patterns in Nature
Technique:Rows of sc

You should really see the gorgeous yarn this month here!

I’m just finishing up testing and you can expect me to edit this post to add a link sometime tomorrow!

Now I’m fairly sure thats all there is for now, Ttfn!

Adam Ant – Prince Charming

Frogging Froglessly

Standard

Hehe! I hope that my title didn’t confuse you, did it?

Anyway, I just finished a test knit on Ravelry for Suzanne Nielsen(shezam on Ravelry) and it’s absolutely adorbs! I’m sure that you’ve guessed by now that it has something or other to do with frogs, and your right!

Isn’t he(or she) just the cutest? This wonderful pattern is called Froggy Cloth(there’s your link to the pattern) And it was pretty darn quick!

Suzannes’ pattern call for filling the eyes with ping-pong balls so that little froggy can float in the tub but, I did a little thinking and thought, “What If I filled the eyes with soap instead?” So now he gets a little foamy ’round the eyes when I use him πŸ˜›

One Pig, Two Pig…

Standard

One day recently, I was sitting at my over abundant stash of really, really acrylic-y, disgusting yarns thinking, “What on Earth am I going to do with all this! There isn’t enough to make any hats or decorations(not that I need any more) and there’s too much to make any small toys(not that I need any more of those either plus, anything that would take that much is always doomed to be started but never finished {see my Granny Square Blanket started July 2010}) So I went surfing(web not ocean since it is winter and a bit too cold for my taste) on Ravelry and finally found the wonderful Chichester The Pig Pattern By Helen Apocalypse! Her Blog which she posted it too read exactly what I was looking for;

Chichester the Pig was born when someone asked me for 26 knitted pigs for an event and I was forced to come up with a pattern that I could knit 26 times without it making me crazy.”

Perfection! I printed it out and knit up oh…2…or 3…or…cough, cough, 7, cough, cough. But in my defense one did escape my picture taking frenzy πŸ˜‰ Here they are:

From left to right: Betty, Letty, Netty, and half a Jetty...

 

...Half a Netty, Jetty, Petty and Earl

 

 

 

 

 

The only piggy missing from this lovely family portrait is Jim-Bob III. He was light blue and the same size as Jetty!
