blue seude 3I finished my socks for the month of February! Oh, I joined the Sock-a-month thing too, just to encourage me further. There is a lot of yarn leftover from knitting these. It'll probably end up as socks for Kyran, and maybe even a pair for Nolan. Depends on exactly how much is left. I also just figured out that taking pictures like this one upside down and then flipping them in the viewer makes for cuter pics. lol

I started the Slouchy hat over the weekend. It's the leftovers from Wicked and some yarn I had in the stash for a fulled belt. The blues look really great together, Wicked slouchyit's exciting. I was almost burnt out on the ProjSpec colors for these two months (wow, that was quick!) until I started this hat. Not that it matters though. I've still got the sweater for my LYS. Which is all sorts of colors. So, I ended up having to knit a few rounds in the dark Friday night. Somebody decided to drive into a power pole. Hopefully nobody was hurt. Otherwise my biting sarcasm is just plain cruel. One of my knitting buddies drove by the scene and said that it didn't look bad enough to have caused severe injuries. Then again, she also said it didn't look bad enough to for them to be by candlelightputting up a new pole.

Got to spin some on Saturday! Not enough to yield any yarn yet. Right now I'm working on spinning up some chocolate colored roving. It's so scrumptious. My spinning is getting a bit better, or my drafting is anyway. Still a bit uneven, but I'm not (surprisingly) too worried about it. Spinning just feels good. Whatever I do with it will be for me anyway. I'd like to get good enough to make sock yarn. But I'll settle for a thick/thin worsted type. It balances out a lot when I ply anyway. Oh! Great news! My mom agreed to go half and half with me on a new wheel when we get our refund in!! Isn't that fabulous? We should get about 7 grand from the refund, plus about 7 more from an "incentive" bonus that Justin is getting. So I get a new tat as well! Very exciting for me. :) Alright, guess I'm either gonna work on my slouchy hat or the LYS sweater. Which had an accident. Let's not talk about it.

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!
