All Wrapped Up

Sorry I haven't been around. Feels like I've been saying that a lot. Especially here. *shrugs*

Ruched Camisole 003Anyways, lots of things have been happening. Most of them personal/non-knitting related things. I'm not going into the details, the people I wanted to tell already know. There was some knitting stuffs happening before shit hit the fan. Or whatever other metaphor you want to use to represent rough times.

I made the Ruched Camisole from Knitting Lingerie Style. It was pretty simple and quick. The worst part has been the finishing up. I still have to attach the straps to the back. Otherwise it's finished. Not like I have anywhere to wear it or anything. Either way, I feel accomplished because I finally sucked it up and used the yarn. Which at first I thought would be WAY too fiddly for me to ever concentrate on.

Somewhat Cowl is still...languishing, if you will. But I started a scarf and the Motorcycle Chica Gloves. You all know how I am with scarves, this one ended up on Retro Chic 005hiatus about two weeks after I started it. And the gloves, well I got SGS (second glove syndrome). It may have been because the thumb doesn't fit quite right. Things like that bother me. Then I have to make the decision to frog and fix or just...dwell. Lately I've been in a dwelling mood, I don't have the energy to even think about the flawed gloves. The funny thing is that I've been in a pretty decent mood the past few days. Tuesday was an amazing day, I was totally on top of the world. It snowed! First time I've seen that happen while I've been here. Snow is magical and I've missed it.

I've finished a few things. I'm not completely crazy. Maybe I am. Anyways, I made some Kolenya fingerless mitts. Then my brother gave me this book with cute little crochet critters in it. I was thrilled and started making Cthulhu immediately. He's super cute and I love him. Then I made the devil for my brother. Oh, there will be entire army! BWAHAHAHAHA!


...*cough* Got carried away.

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!
