Picture Pages, Picture Pages

WOOT! check out my sweet pics...

First off, jaywalker progress



I'm turning the heel now (well not right now LOL) and progress is a bit slow. size 1s are taking their toll on me and I can't work very long before my tendonitis gets the better of me...

next up...SURPRISE!



Kelly was looking for a banner and I made her one and this is how she thanked me :) I really needed that after a L-O-N-G day at work (14 hours!) and the work is beautiful. Check out the artist, Cathy .

sock it to me

so I've finished that little sock/hat thing for my dad's brake cylinder on his goldwing. I think I'll add some elastic to make it a bit more secure, but not too bad for not having a pattern :)

so I've have this skein of socks that rock in emerald isle and I haven't been able to decide what I want to do with it. I tried to write my own sock pattern based on another but I've never actually knit a complete pair of socks, so I scratched that idea. I think I've finally settled on the jaywalker pattern. I came accross this blog and they came out beautiful. I was also worried that I wouldn't have enough yarn, but I think I will. I'll just have to be really accurate with my cast on and I should just make it. So hopefully my first complete pair of socks won't be a complete distater :) and hopefully knitting on #1's won't kill me either! LOL

She's ALIVE!!!

ok, so you all must have thought i fell off of the face of the earth since I haven't made a peep in over 3 months...the good news is I am still alive :) I've been very busy not really knitting or crocheting for the past three months...there was a momentary scarf blitz around Easter, but that's about it.

The dredlock bag is almost complete! It's only taken me *almost* a year to do it, but I'm nearly there. I've finished sewing in the zipper and now just a few snaps and I'll be sporting it around town :) Pics will be posted. promise!

WIPS
• some weird sock thing for my dad's morotcycle
• another cleo in all black
• that damn olympic sweater - it'll have to wait for a VERY patient day :)
and I think that's it...LOL

and on a personal note...
I've gotten a new job! I'm now the graphic designer for The Woodstock Independent newspaper. YAY! a job in my field! and I'm loving it :) :) :) i'm spending a LOT of time here in Woodstock (I'm actually writing form my office) and hope to be moving here soon...

SOOOOOOO I'm planning on updating more often and actually doing some knitting and or crocheting. Look for more in the future!
