Busy Knitten

I have so much on my mind. My holiday gifts, the ball tomorrow, the babies, making a DPN case, making a sock bag with a twist, my in-laws are here, getting my computer back, paying bills, and so on. Details first.

slipper socksI fulled the socks a second time, they are at 10 inches now. I'll have to watch them closely on the next go round. It makes me happy to know that I'm essentially done. Yes that's right, all that remains is one last trip in the washer, and sewing them all up!! That makes me happy. My next project will be Bamboozelle, and I'd start it now, but my MIL is here and I don't want her to see it.

yarn bead 2She's here to watch the kids while we go to the ball tomorrow. Which will be sooo much fun! Dancing, dinner, and friends. No kids. Plus, as a bonus, Justin hasn't seen the dress, so I have my first opportunity (in a loooong time) to wow him. We'll see how that goes. Don't worry, there will be pictures.

I wish I had some time to sew, I could have made my own dress again. It was really gorgeous last year, you should have seen it. Besides, I want to make a case for my DPNs and sock circs. So, it's like a sock needle case. I've only got two circs, but several sets of DPNs. Plenty of cow print fabric to go along with my theme. lol And just today I got a cute idea for a sock bag. You know, like the sock bug, but more fun. Just waiting for some free time. So there might not be any progress on that until after Christmas.

kipOne of Matty's knucks is nearly finished. I should be a pro at these by the time I'm done. This is my third set and I still have two more! One will be for me, although I plan on making two for me. As a matter of fact, there is some purple yarn in the Tail Spinner just waiting for me to buy it. The yarn I have already is brown. I also want to make some for Kyran and Heather. Heather will probably fit into the child sized gloves, but Ky will have to have specially made ones.

Do you know how hard it is to NOT buy yarn? It's hard...really hard. I've NOT bought yarn three times already today. And I think I might break the rule and buy some more yarn to dye. Oh, speaking of, I have to re-dye the brown on my Fall Foliage yarn. There are yarns I want to buy for the Arrrgyle socks. My plans are...complicated? Yes. Well, I want to knit the foot with my Lorna's Laces, then turn the sock inside out (that's right, inside out) and knit the cuff with Arrrgyle pattern. That way it folds over. Um, don't ask. We'll see how this works out. Anyways, I want to buy some KnitPicks Essentials (or maybe Palette) in black, white, grey and purple. Then, some more in Burgundy for the Södera socks. To match my plaid skirt.

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!
