Happy Knitversary!

To me!! lol So, I did my best to enjoy the day, even though some crummy things knitversary cuppycakeshappened. In staying with that outlook of the day, I'm not telling you about the things that did not make me happy. So, here is what made me happy today:

I got commissioned to make 4 pairs of those Converse booties! The lady will pay me $10 per pair, and since I'm using acrylic I'll have $30 profit. That is pretty sweet. More money to fuel my habit. :)

To celebrate my knitversary, I made cupcakes. I tried to make them look kinda like balls of yarn, but I'm definitely not as good as Carissa. So, they camekromski symphony out kinda ridiculous looking. They still tasted good. hehe Also, I spun some tonight. Man, I have been jonesing for some spinning time. Justin says to order the wheel tomorrow, I think I will. I'm thinking the Kromski Symphony, I tried it out tonight and it felt so smooth! The double treadle looked kind of daunting at first, but it gave me something to do with that other foot and made me less likely to hit my shins on the bench. The colors are looking soooo good to me, I was trying to step outside of my teal/turquoise and brown combos. I was down to olive green and baby blue (already had a full bobbin of chocolatey brown), the gals at the shop voted olive. It looks good too. Here is some yummy goodness (as always, click for larger pic):

Hmm, what else? We are now going to San Jose instead of Phoenix. Which is where the Winchester Mansion is!! I have knitversary rovingwanted to see this place since I was about 11 or so. This is way more exciting to me than Phoenix. Picked up some more things for my PRGE pal, still waiting for a few things to arrive before I can mail her package out. Started some kinda plain toe-up socks out of my Nermal yarn, I was doing the Snowflake socks, but I hated it. Now it is going to be a lame version of the Heelless Sleeping Socks from Knitting Vintage socks. The roving I ordered from Cherry Blossom Fibers arrived today too! It's so gorgeous, I'm pretty sure she has been crawling around in my head. Plus, she's great. Seriously, go there sometime.

Is that it? Oh, no, Justin says I can still go to MDS&W!!! That is fabulous. Tomorrow will be even better, I am sure. I mean, it's St. Patrick's Day folks. :)

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!
