Thank you …

I would like to thank M over at mega(k)nits for being a great secret pal! I got a package in the mail yesterday from my secret pal.  It was full of wonderful treasures. In December I wrote a post about what I would like to learn this year.  dsc01023.JPGOne thing that I wanted to learn is knitting socks on 2 circs so … my wonderful secret pal sent me these and Sensational Knitted Socks.

She also sent a very cute bag, which my daughter has already tried to take away from me … I colors are very nice.  In the box was also some candy, mints, and note cards.  SP9 was a lot of fun …

 Happy knitting ~ have a good one!!

the blues

dsc00980.JPGwhat is this you might ask? well it is the frogged remains of the rave lace shawl that I started for my grandmother. I some how screwd up the pattern (yo, k2tog ~ yo, p2tog). Clearly I have overshot my ablity to knit and follow directions.  I messed up the pattern and had to start all over again.  Not once but 3 times! 

When I picked this pattern I figured that it would go quickly (using #9 needles) and that the pattern was for the most dsc00981.JPGpart easy, since there is really on 2 pattern lines you need to remember.  Again I clearly overshot my abilities!!  Here is the revived shawl. Lets see how long I can go without having to FROG!

Moving (again)

moving.jpgSo about a year or so ago I bought a url www.knotbuilder.com, well I am finally going to put my blog there!! It is going to take some time to set up the new blog so I will post here in the mean time, but it will get there. 

In knitting news, I had been making good progress on the shawl and some how lost 2 sts so I had to frog the WHOLE thing! I am now just starting again.  As far as the socks go I made good headway on them yesterday.  I think they might actually get finished some time in the next few months :)!
