Finishing & Starting Stuff

Things have sortof settled down here. I’ve been able to pick up the knitting for brief bouts of time as I’m still dealing with sinus issue (allergies? cold? I have no idea.) Anyway, I finished sheldon (knitty.com) – but as it is for Lorelai, I’ve named this turtle Sookie.

A relatively quick knit, fun to do, and I will knit it again for future babies. I would not stuff the shell as much next time, and I would work the applied i-cord in the opposite direction (lefty issue, but not a big deal).

I picked up the Debbie Bliss magazine: New magazine
There are some cute items in there (I’m obsessed with the vest mostly.)

I finished a sock! First one since April! Oh, how I miss making socks! I love that this is a sport weight yarn, knit on US3 – one week and the sock is done! Sanrio Sock #1
This is the yarn from my woolgirl.com “Sanrio Sock Kit”. The yarn is TV Yarn, Fat Sock from white oak studio and I love it. With all its neon goodness, and you know, I almost think the yellow is not bright enough! All the other neon colors tone it down! Can’t wait to finish the next one. Lorelai is interested as well.

She’s funny – I can give her a length of yarn and she’s happy. Then we talk about knitting. Maybe it will stic

I had to work on something else sort of quick and mindless. Seeing Peacefulknitter‘s neckwarmers have kept me thinking about them, so I have started the Chickadee-cowl (rav link) using Farmhouse Yarns Mary’s Little Lamb Light Worsted held double.

So far, so good.

Can’t believe it’s been 7 Years since 9/11/01.

On a more upbeat note I’m sortof employed! I found a part-time, work from home on the computer, legit gig for an internet entity. Can’t really say much more than that. But it should be good.
