Lots of Things Going On

February 2, 2011

as i am typing this, i am listening to the knitwitspodcast.  I just love this podcast.  rick and carin are so super cute and i find carin to be quite the inspriation. 

so as i have titled the post, i do have a lot of things going on here.  finally.  things have been so slow and boring around here for so long and uninspirational.  i have finally found a bit of a groove and i am trying my best to stick with it.  now if only i could fit some housework in there, i would have it going on.

i just received my order from knitpicks today.  take a look at this haul:

this is what’s in there; i purchased this kit.  which was a great buy.  this kit included 2 skeins of stroll in merlot heather, a hank of bare in superwash wool, nylon fingering weight and a hank of stroll in the playtime hand painted colorway.  just lovely.  with three patterns.  socks, fingerless mitts and a slouchy beret.

i also got 2 hanks of imagination in the mermaid colorway to go with the multnomah shawl pattern on ravelry and last but not least i got 9 skeins of shine worsted in the serrano colorway for the knitpicks pattern called after five lace shrug pattern.  it is just a great looking pattern.  i cannot wait to start  i don’t know where to begin,  i think i have a serious case of startitis.

umm, what else do i have going on?  oh okay, a new item in my zibbet’s store at  http://www.zibbet.com/marylove.  it is a very slouchy beret.  and i have totally been into pinterest.  if you want to be friends on there look me up because i would love to hook up.  my username on pinterest is marylove and you can find me on twitter as @marymakes.

please check me out and if you have any sites that you would like me to check out, please let me know.

WIPs

February 5, 2010

I know that I have not been very diligent in my blog writing, but I have been so in my knitting.

The first WIP I have to show is not a very good picture but the best that I could get with the light given.

It is a picture of the sweater I have been working on.  This is the front, the back is completed.  The unfortunate thing  about the sweater, is that I failed to order enough yarn for it.  So I have been working on my other WIP which was a birthday present from my sister-in-law.  It is the New Traditions Afghan from KnitPicks.

Here is a square I have been working on.

I am really enjoying it.  I love changing the colors often.  It never gets boring even though it is all garter stitch.

Last but not least, is the sock I have been working on.

Again, not a great picture but all I could really get.

So, as you can tell I have been busy and I do love blogging again.

Tomorrow:  A possible blizzard to report.

Back Again

January 6, 2010

So anyway, I have been so so bad at posting on the other blog I started, (with good intentions), that I decided I may as well come back to the blog I really liked.

I am here to stay and hoping to do better.  Really and truly.  It is a new year and I am hoping to start new things.

I recently made my first purchase from Knitpicks and it is definitely not my last as you will see in future posts.  I ordered 4 balls of sock yarn and a set of Harmony DPNs.  Very exciting.  I am working on my first pair of socks and loving the needles, as well as the yarn.  Hopefully, I will have pictures tomorrow.
