Catching Up

Hello again. I'm back. Apologies for the lack in posting but I've been without internet for almost all of February.

You see, I've moved. Out on my own. I'm living in a basement suite, and I've got my cat back. He's now living with me. I know he hates living in a basement with tiny windows that he cant reach, but I also think he's just happy to be living with someone who loves and cares about him again. I love having him here.

I've been knitting a bit, I'm almost finished that nice cowl, but I wont show you pictures, I know stockinette progress pictures are pretty boring. This may very well end up being a photoless post.

I've decided to do Project Spectrum again this year. I've 'done' it the last two years as well but didn't ever really follow it. I plan on actually participating this year, and I'm looking forward to it. The theme this year in 'Cardinal Directions.' (north, east, south, west) First two months should be easy, as the designated colour is green. Green is the predominant colour in my yarn stash and wip line up. And I know I'll enjoy taking photos of rocks and snow and dirt. Odd as it sounds...

For more information on project spectrum please visit Lolly's Project Spectrum Cardinal Directions post. It might help you readers to know where I'm getting some of my inspiration. And it might be fun to follow along. Or join yourself! You don't have to be a knitter to join. You can just take pictures that go with the theme, scrapbooking, clothing, whatever strikes your fancy.

I've been thinking about what new projects to start lately. I've got some worsted weight purple coloured wool that I'd like to start a February Lady with. This sounds like a much easier first sweater project and much more flattering than what I orginally had in mind.

I'm also trying to hash out an idea for a cat bed for Mittens. I have a specific cable pattern that I'd like to incorporate, but I need to do a small amount of figuring to make it work.

I've got some soft green GGH Kid mohairy yarn that was formerly another project that I really disliked. I'd like to turn it into a Reading-in-Bed Shrug or something. I'm not 100% sure yet.

Anyhow, I think that's all I have to say tonight. Thanks for reading.

PS Have a picture of the Cat

Happy New Year

Hello, welcome to 2009.

My new years resolutions are...

Blog more often (we'll see)
Knit more often (already doing pretty good)
Get my diploma (goal is to do that by the time I'm twenty, not sure yet if that's realistic. I turn 19 on Jan 14 for those of you who don't know)

Guess what, I've been knitting for just over three years now. What do I have to show for it?

"Spiral" Cowl Progress

I've been working on this cowl for a while. I'm just over half finished I would say. Looking forward to having it completed.

I'm knitting it in Artyarns Ultramerino 6. I love this yarn, it really does knit like cotton because it's spun so differently but the feel and sproing of it is spectacular. Loving it.

I also love picot hems. Although I finished the first hem while in a moving vehicle. Not recommended, especially when you forgot to bring a needle to hold your live stitches! That was risky..

I think that's all the knitting content I'll give for today. Don't want to catch up all at once. At the slow rate I'm knitting I'll be caught up in a few posts though.

Thanks for reading, and I hope all of your new year celebrations were happy and loving ones. I know mine was.

Alive and well.

Holy, a lot has happened lately.

I have no camera, I was celebrating a friends eighteenth birthday with her at a pub and it was stolen.. That sucks. My next camera shall be a Fujifilm Z10. A green one.

I do have some knitting pictures still that I never got around to posting about. So I'll try to post those in the near future.

I got a new (read: better) job and I start on Friday. I'm nervous.

I moved. To the other side of the city. I've been living here for a week and only last night did I finally set up my bed. No more sleeping on the floor for me!

That's all I can think of for now, although there's probably a lot more than that. Isn't catching up fun in point form?


PS I miss my kitty!

60th Post!

Well I've already had a 60th post, but that was before I deleted all the stupid, irrelevant ones. So this is the real 60th post.

Here's a photo from a recent road trip of the front of my mom's car. We thought it was rain at first. The sun had just set completely so we couldn't really see what was hitting the windshield, turns out it was bugs...
Mosquito Carnage
That's all mosquitoes. I like to think we did the world a favour.

ps, I've been knitting, not much but I've got one hem repeat done on my bleeding hearts stole, I'll start taking photos as soon as I get to the main body of the pattern.
