I'm Just NOT a Martha

It's true. I can't be a -no martha 2Martha. I took the quiz, and read the descriptions, no doubts about it, I'm a Frank. Definitely. And I am trying. Really, I am. I don't expect to have these socks done in time, but I wanted to try to knit something out of character, to see how I do. *sigh* This is as good as it gets folks. Actually, to make matters worse I am wearing some Frank-type socks in the pictures! Ugh. Ironically, both yarns are Cherry Blossom Fibers. The socks I'm wearing were the Blue Flash "I Dreamed of Africa" socks. The socks I am knitting are a toe-up version of the Madder Ribbed socks from Knitting Vintage Socks in Nermal. The colors are neutral, but it's still variegated. lol And I had to do something other than Madder detailstraight stockinette as I was kinda scared I'd never finish them, stockinette bores me. Really, the only reason I picked this ribbing pattern was for the name. Come on...Madder ribbing? Oh yes, I'm so doing this again in a bright pink and purple, so I can call them my "We're all Madder here" socks. bwahahaha! Yes, I'm nuts.

Anywho...Endpaper Mitt #2 is a tubular bind off and thumb ribbing away from completion! Actually, I got it to this point last night, and then realized that Justin had stolen the computer and I had NOT printed out the directions. Bad Kitty, bad! Oh well, I got through the last bit and managed to not break any more needles. binding off 2Since my 0s are metal (KnitPicks) needles, I'm not too concerned with them breaking. I am just procrastinating now. That means I have to start the Converse booties, and I'm kinda scared. Granted, I've done the pattern about...5 times already. Still, I am worried they won't be good enough quality. My seaming really does suck. *sigh* I wish the stuff would get here for my PRGE pal already! If it's not here by the end of the week, I'll email Sunne and let her know. Not like I won't dish out the extra couple bucks to overnight it or whatever, it'd be my fault and I DON'T wanna end up on that deadbeats list.

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!
