On Vacay

Okay...so it's not really vacation when you are staying with your in-laws and have to sleep on the couch. lol But it's all good. Anyway, I finally got around to binding off and weaving in my ends on the MP. I missed the deadline for the fall issue, but maybe I can try for the winter one? I'll try anyway.

I finally got my chance to gauge swatch that Gem for my mom's top, that stuff is so hard to work with. It might just be my needles, because the Denise needles aren't perfectly smooth and kinda snag the yarn a bit. Or maybe it's just because I'm not used to using ribbon yarn. When I get back to NC I'll ask Linda about it. Because I was getting like almost an entire extra stitch per inch, and I'm not a tight knitter.

My mom tried to take me to the Yarn Garden in Annapolis today, but it was closed. I guess I should have called, but I'm a little slow sometimes. All of the other sites had notes posted about when they'd be closed, so I just assumed no notification meant they'd be open. It's alright, we just went to lunch. lol Really, I just wanna get my hands on the right shade of yellow Cascade 220. I'm just gonna order it I think, got some other colors of the Cascade that I wanna pick up. It's just kinda a pain in the rear to order it when my LYS stocks that yarn, just not the colors I want.

I'm about to start the heel on my Jaywalkers...pray for me! lol I'm doing this with no help, I'm going to read the directions and just try to not mess it up. The girls at the shop said that the ankle on them tends to be tight, I'll have to cross my fingers because Jamie has wide feet/ankles and I really hope they will fit. Since I'm taking them with me tomorrow to a mini-reunion type lunch we're having, I'll at least measure Jamie's feet. The Jaywalkers don't have to be a surprise, but I really don't want her to find out about the pedicure socks. So if I have one pair of socks that I finish for her, the second will be like a cakewalk...right? She'll probably be amused one way or the other.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
