Say goodbye to 2006!

I can’t believe that it is 2007!   I have found a few groups to join for 2007 the first, in an attempt to become a better sock knitter I have joined the socktpoia KAL.


The second is Knit from you stash 2007; Here are the “rules” guidelines:stash2007.gif

  1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 — a period of nine months.
  2. We will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
  3. Sock yarn does not count. What? You think we are made of stone?
  4. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that we really and truly do not have the yarn for, we may buy yarn to knit that gift.
  5. If we are knitting something and run out of yarn, we may purchase enough to complete the project.
  6. We each get one “Get Out of Jail Free” card — we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time.
  7. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.

So as far as the Knit from your stash goes … I will try but I am not holding out hope!  Good Luck with what ever you “try” in 2007!

Well we had another successful Christmas dd and ds were very happy with what Santa brought them … DH got me the Vouge Knitting book, so I think that I might have to try my hand at designing something.  All in all it was a great holiday! And I look forward to 2007!

As for next year this is what I would like to accomplish:

  • A sweater for myself;

  • Become a better Lace Knitter;

  • Learn to design a sweaters;

  • Learn either the magic loop or 2 circs method;

 I hope you all had a great Holiday! And are looking ahead to 2007 with hope and eagerness!

I found something …

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics … to knit!  I am so proud of myself.  A few days ago I saw this pattern; in one of my groups, can’t remember which one. So I thought I would give it a run, I am using a green/tan/white ombre, I think it is like sage country ombre??? And as I was working on that dd was asking a few questions as I was looking at this hat so I decided to start a hat for her, I am using some cotton fleece that I have in tangerine.  The only problem here is that I know full well that I am not going ot be able to finish before I leave … and I don’t think I am going to take either project with me, after all that is why I mailed my projects up ahead of me???

What Tarot Card are You?

You are the World (Universe)

Completion, Good Reward.

The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you’ve been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you’ve done everything right.


Take the Test to Find Out What Tarot Card You Are.

Finally a picture updated

nikkis-blanket.JPGHere we are finally some WIP pictures … first off we have the second blanket; I am using Mode Dea in some shade of blue that I can’t remember.  I am using grandma’s favorite discloth pattern for it, I think when I am done I will buy some boyish things that I can iron on.

dsc00922.JPGThese are some stitch markers that I bought from Andi’s ebay sight, I have to stay away or I will keep buying them …


 this is the second fix that we had to do on DD’s shrug … the cat just does not like this … I still have to fix the cuff …

 dsc00920.JPG This is some yarn that I got from Mandy and Caps For a Cure … not sure yet what I am going to do with it but I will think of something!
