my sister-in-law who lives in another state called me up and said, "Hey. You haven't updated your knitting blog since last October. Post something!" So this post's for you, Jean!

firstly, i'm not working at the Yarn Store anymore. *sniff* i graduated from college and had to join the full time work force.

now! onto the yarny stuff!Collapse )

so that's my update. hopefully i won't be so bad as to not update again until next year...

so much crafting... so little time...

i have SO many projects (knitting, crochet, sewing) that i want to work on. and i want to work on all of them at the same time. but i can't!


i need to keep myself from starting anything new until i get some of my other projects finished!

soooo here are some images of yarny things that have been happening since the last post. :)

so yeah...

i'm done with the scarf. :)

it's pretty long. like i could jump rope with it. i put a little fringe on the ends with the little bit of yarn left in the skein.

onward to silly pictures.

you learn something new everyday.

check this out:

i'm knitting a loooong skinny scarf with some fuzzy stuff i got at wal*mart a long time ago.

i'm sure the first question on your mind is, "but susan, what size needles are you using?" look to the next picture:

yep. those are my fingers. not needles. today while surfing knitty.com i found this: Finger Knitting. Pretty cool, eh?

i've heard stories of people who knit with a loom type thing and i think it works something like this. but i think this is pretty neat! i'm going to Kingfisher later this afternoon/evening and maybe i'll bring along a skien of yarn and show tyler's little sis how to do it. who knows!

speaking of tyler:

isn't he handsome? <3<3<3

well hello there

Hello friends of knit_ten!

i haven't updated lately but that doesn't mean i haven't been knitting. oh no! in fact i've been knitting a lot. i've been working on hats, scarves, purses, baby blankets, dish clothes, pot holders. lots of things. but i don't seem to be finishing anything!! i've started so many things but finishing them is just not on my list of things to do! i have finished several dishcloths though. i gave a couple of them to Tyler's mom for her birthday which was on the 4th of July. and i gave one with a frog design on it to one of my mom's friends. and i kept another one for myself.

blah blah blah... talking talking talking...

work is great. we've rearanged all the stuff in the store and it's looking good. this july 25th, the Yarn Harlot is coming to our store. neat huh? my boss is a funny lady and she makes me laugh.

that is all for now. maybe pictures later.

i'm making these fingerless mits from this pattern. http://xephyr-42.livejournal.com/17597.html you also might notice that those are hufflepuff colours... and for those who don't know me, i sure as hell am NOT hufflepuff!! this girl is slytherin all the way. but my boyfriend was unfortunately sorted into hufflepuff. so they are for him!

after i finish these, i'm going to be making this. http://community.livejournal.com/weasleysweaters/43554.html in ravenclaw colours for my brother. and THEN... maybe i'll knit something for myself.

in job news, work is AWESOME!! i love my job so much! this saturday is the knit-in so i need to get a hold of avery and see if she wants to come. :)

p.s. - i made another hat using that silk garden pattern... well i tweeked it a lot actually. i'll post a picture of the resulting hat a little later.
