Hahaha... oooops.

Mmkay, so, you know how I promised new pictures this post? Well, that's not going to be happening for a little while now.

I kind of accidentally drowned the contents of my small purse in cranberry juice, including my most important electronics. Thankfully, the most expensive one (and only one that I actually paid for myself), my iPod, survived unscathed, just a little sticky. My cellphone and camera, however, are another story.

My cellphone survived, but the battery dies in under a day and the dial pad is kinda messed up, also I can't put my ringer on vibrate, silent or high+vibe.

My camera actually survived pretty well at first, until everything had a chance to dry, now the function wheel will barely turn and as of today, it will no longer turn on.

So, new camera, new cellphone. I wanted new of both eventually anyways, but I would rather have done it on my own terms. So it'll be a while before I have new pictures, at least a couple of months, have to save up for a new camera. I also have to save up for a new phone and figure out how to get it working on the same plan that I have now.

Anyways, in the way of knitting, I have one new project started. I'm almost done the main part of my Shedir. I'm still working on my Noro striped scarf, which I think I need more yarn for. I finished one of the Hello Yarn Twisted Cable bed socks.

Bye for now.

Still here.

I'm still here.

I think it's funny how, every time I come back and say I'm back for good, I make a couple of lame posts then bugger off again.

A part of the reason is that I've started working full time a couple of weeks ago. I love my job and I'm having a lot of fun and I love the fatter pay cheque, but I don't find myself having all that much time to do stuff anymore. I guess I just have to get into the swing of things.

I have been knitting, I went to BC and brought back yarn. That was a lot of fun. That's an important story and I really need to post about that. It's very knitting related in parts.

Let's see, what have I been knitting lately. List time?

- Shedir Hat
- Noro Scarf (adapted from this which I think is adapted from something else...)
- Cable Twist Bed Socks

I have a lot of new yarn to post about, I might be able to post some of it in this post, but I still need to take pictures of some of the newer stuff.

Shoot, I don't have any pictures of any of the new stuff... I'll show you newish stuff that hasn't been talked about on the blog yet then..

Socks That Rock Lightweight in Firebird.
From the Rockin' Rock Club.

Socks That Rock Silkie in Walking on the Wild Tide.
Also from Rockin Sock Club.

This sock has since been finished, need to start the other sock. It's kinda hard to get on my foot, very snug. Maybe it'll be better with a block?

Knee high sock. Has been frogged. Made me feel chubby. Nuff said.

This is a lot bigger now, I think I have almost all of the repeats done. I need it done soon, it's getting cold out there!

I have received another Sock Club instalment since pictures have been taken. I'll try to take some pictures this weekend, hopefully the weather will be decent.

I also want to make this a lot. Is that not freakin gorgeous?

Well I have to get off to bed. Night.

Oh my gosh, I saw a girl in a sweater type thing yesterday. It was a long deep v vest, with a shawl collar that turned into a hood. I want it. I might try to design it someday... I think I need to actually make a vest or a sweater first so that I can know how they work... But I'm thinking steeked with the collar/hood picked up and added after. In worsted weight yarn... Oh my gosh look at me, I'm becoming a designer!

Happy 60th Post Me!

Yep, sixty... For my hundredth I'll try to have something really awesome... I can't think of anything yet. Hey, I know! Give me ideas!!! Leave me a comment!

I just got back from a trip to the new Salon One at Millrise Station. I'm very impressed. I got a haircut from a guy who I think is the manager, that makes me feel special. I love hairstylists! They're so awesome! They're all 'hey pretty girl!' and thats neat.

Have a picture! (added bonus of getting to see my pretty booboos, story on that later)Yays! Okay, story on booboos now. My boyfriend and I were riding our bikes home from his house and I went off the sidewalk and it's kind of a ledge and I ran into that ledge and wiped out. I somehow twisted 90 degrees and landed on my face, I cut up my chin, my lip and had two smaller scrapes above and below my right eye. BF was freaking out and I was laughing, because I'm weird like that, I think he thought I was nuts. :) This happened on Saturday, I was mostly pissed because I'm going to a prom tomorrow and it's definitely not going to be healed by then. (This picture is from today)

But look at my hair! Isn't it awesome! For $55 I think I got my moneys worth. I think this is the most I've ever spent on a haircut, but it's also the best haircut I've ever had. Yay! Celebration!

So after I got my haircut, I went to Starbucks and got an Orange Mocha, very good, very rich. I also got an Orange Creme Coffee Cake, I haven't finished yet but it's also very tasty. I like oranges. I'm still hoping that they bring back the Lemon Raspberry Loaf. That was my all time favourite, My two favourite flavours together. Bliss!

I then went to Shoppers and got some deodorant (woo) and I decided I wanted to get a Shoppers Optimum card... It makes me feel grown up.

Tomorrow I'm going back to Salon One and getting a set of gel nails for $75. (ugh) I know this is alot, but I just need to get it done and I don't plan on spending this recent paycheck on anything but prom stuff and maybe paying some people back money that I owe them. After all this prom stuff is paid for, I'm getting me an Ipod. (80 gig all the way!)

What? What's that you say? You thought this was a knitting blog? Oh yeah... Well I have some knitting content for you too, don't worry!

I started some knee high socks last night. I know, the last thing I need to do is start a new project but I want to knit socks and would rather be making my dad's socks but I need to buy some metal circular needles so I can do two socks on two circs (I might try doing them on just one circ) and I won't be able to afford that for a while. That and I'm still not sure what pattern I want to use, I would like to use a pattern that I can use with a figure eight cast on. I'm sure I could use any pattern, but I don't know how many stitches I would need to start with, I'm thinking it's a quarter of the amount of stitches I want to end up with for a good-looking toe. Make sense? For those knitters who don't know what I'm talking about, here's a good figure eight cast on tutorial.

Anyways, here's a picture of that sock. Oh, that's a little blurry, sorry. Oh well, it's just 2x2 ribbing so far anyways.
This sock is being made using a custom pattern generated by this calculator. It's really handy and it works quite well. I'm using Austermann Step in color 03 and I'll probably have to buy another ball for the other sock. I hope I can find another ball in that color. I don't think I've seen it around. I've had this yarn since my mom and I went to Kelowna in August of last year for her High-School Reunion. Here's the post.

Well I'm gonna go for now, I'll definately have prom pictures next post!

Monday, May 21, 2007


I did it! It's done! I finally put the bloody pictures up!!!! Go look at my Ravelry page!

PS I LOVE RAVELRY! I could stay up all night cataloging allll my stuff. This will definitely keep me organized.

Time for a Change

I've decided to change the title of my blog, along with my blog url. I'm now kiKNITics... it was either that or String Theory. I like science... :)

I've finished my Shetland Shawl and blocked it, I'll have pictures next post.

I've also signed up for an account on Ravelry which is what initially sparked this whole name-change thing, I needed a witty username, I started to think about how Kate Knits is a sucky blog name... Here we are.

I haven't gotten into the Ravelry thing too much yet, I'll let you know how I like it. (I think I'll like it alot)

Where the H-E-Double Hockeysticks are all my crochet hooks?!?!

I need to 'bind off very loosely'!!!

PS: If you haven't figured it out, this means I'm almost done my Shetland Triangle. I hope it doesn't turn out too small...

Friday, May 04, 2007

Proud to be Norwegian

Is that not a freaking brilliant piece of non-technology?

Just a check-in because I'm really trying to blog regularly. Next post I'll hopefully have a finished and blocked Shetland Triangle. It's coming along nicely, but it's too big now to stretch out and dry-block on the needles. So if I tried to take a picture of it, it'd be a big rumply mess... Meh.

Sunday, April 22, 2007

I'm back for real now.

I'm here and I'm posting a somewhat picture heavy catch up post. These are all the things that I'm actively/currently knitting.

This is half of an Eunny Jang Endpaper Mitt. This is my first try at fair-isle, I like it! I'm using the two handed method with one color in each hand, which is also kind of teaching how to knit English style (which I think is the one where you hold the yarn in your right hand) I normally hold the yarn in my left hand. Much more efficient. The yarn is Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift, colors 1020 Nighthawk and 1160 Scotch Broom. I think they might be a little small, so I might end up starting over with bigger needles... Do a gauge swatch next time Katie... Jeeze. I really love this yarn and this pattern. The yarn is just so earthy and sticky and wonderful. The pattern is so classic and beautiful, it's simply complex and complexly simple.

This is's Luna Moth Shawl. I'm using Crystal Palace Kid Merino in color 9798 Red Cinnamon.
I haven't done enough to start to see the pattern yet, so it's boring so far. I need to find a better needle for this one, the cable is misbehaving.

This is the Shetland Triangle from Interweave Press' Wrap Style. This shawl is the main reason that I bought the book, I saw it everywhere and it was beautiful.
The yarn is's Baby Silk in Aubergine. Remember the Razor Cami I was making? This is that yarn, I got tired of the cami. I originally wanted to frog the cami and make Thermal, but maybe my first sweater should be made of something a little thicker than fingering weight yarn, no? Anyways, this is far along enough to see the pattern and I think it's going to be really beautiful.

News break. I'm going to a friend of mine's prom on May 25. I'm his date! I have a pretty dress and everything! I'll try to get a picture of it for my next post. I'm so pumped for this. I get to see some old friends and dress up and I just, you know... I get to go to prom! I didn't think I would get to. I'm not graduating for another couple of years and I don't really go to a school. I hope to be able to get three proms worth of wear out of this dress, my friend's, my old school (being a date for a girlfriend), and I plan to have my own prom this summer for anyone who didn't get to graduate or just wants to have another chance to wear their dress.

This is yarn that I made with the Ashford Kiwi I got for Christmas. And it's pretty damn good if I do say so myself.
I plan to re-dye it, the color's pretty icky and blah right now. Like a gray sort of lavendery-pink. I was going for lavender, but I think I ran out of blue. I'm not sure yet what I want to make with it. I might just put it on permanent hank-display.

I've been using the leftover hemp from these hats for a scarf/belt/hairband thingy. It's almost done.

I learned Brioche stitch. It's kinda cool. Took me a while to figure out that it can only be done in the round. Well it probably could be done flat, but the directions I was going by were in the round. This is the yarn that was formerly skully mitten.

This is a Clapotis. In Artyarns Ultramerino 6 in color 127 (my dream color and thats a freaking beautiful picture in that link) I think this is kind of a person's rite of passage into the knit-blogging world, if your a knit-blogger, you've probably made a Clapotis.
I've made two drop rows so far. It's a lot of fun.

That must be it for pictures, so I'll give you some more news. I quit my job at the Zoo, because I'm going back to school in may and I would like to be able to have more hours and the Zoo closes at five. I got a new job (within a week, can you believe that?) at The Body Shop in Chinook Mall, I start Tuesday.

Oh and my dad got an awesome new car, I really love it. It's red.

Oh! I've gone vegetarian! It's really great actually. Aside from the health benefits, I'm no longer participating in the cruelty to animals raised for slaughter and I'm no longer risking the effects of poorly regulated meat products. I've taken the PETA 30 day pledge for Vegetarianism, I started on the 28th of March, so I'm officially done on the 27th of this month. I'd like to keep myself vegetarian permanently though. I'm very proud of myself for taking this kind of initiative in something like this, I'm not very good at keeping promises or anything like that so this is a big deal for me. I'm actually starting to miss meat a lot less now, sometimes it even grosses me out. The other day my mother had a steak out on the counter that she made herself for dinner and I just had no desire for it. I've found many really delicious vegetarian recipes with meat substitutes. Like a really wonderful chili that my mom made and she just threw in TVP (textured vegetable protein) instead of the chicken that the recipe called for. For dinner tonight I had this 'Just Add Veggies' kit, it had rice, soy protein nuggets and teriyaki sauce, I added green pepper, broccoli, snap peas and onion to it and it was wonderful!

One thing I could never do is go Vegan, there's just too many things I love about that kind of stuff. I love to bake, and I refuse to use margarine or any kind of milk substitute, it's wrong. Butter is better for you anyways, I don't really drink milk, of any kind, I use soy milk on my cereal because dairy milk makes me feel yucky. I do use dairy milk for hot chocolate and baking like I said. Also, I love wool... All kinds, Alpaca, Merino, Cashmere (I mean it's just basically a haircut, whats the big deal) and I love silk too. I don't really wear leather, except for shoes. Yeah...

I have dreams of owning a Happy Vegetarian farm where animals that would normally be raised for slaughter or labour can be raised as happy companion animals. Cows, horses, pigs (pigs!), chickens, goats, sheep (of course I will shear the sheep), etc. It'll be pretty awesome and I'll probably give tours or something and maybe someday be associated with PETA... Maybe.

Sometimes I don't like the way that PETA talks. They kind of force veganism on you and make you feel guilty for eating meat. They don't really cite their resources either for a lot of the things that they say. They seem to be very preachy at times, they treat you like a bad person if your a meat-eater and even sometimes just a vegetarian, but they treat you like a saint if your a vegan. Those of you who know me know that I am the farthest thing from preachy and I'm very open-mined and I really dislike preachy people.

Veggie rant over I think... :) I like to talk about myself. I guess that's why I have a blog, right?

PS When I have companion animals of my own, They'll be vegan. Just because cats and dogs can't really be just vegetarian, because they don't eat or drink any dairy (cat's shouldn't drink milk, it makes them sick) or, you know, wear leather and knit with wool and stuff.

It is actually more of a challenge to have vegan cats than it is to have vegan dogs.

See dogs are natural Omnivores, so they're okay not eating meat. Cats, on the other hand, are natural raw carnivores. They need the taurine (an amino acid) that is in raw animal flesh. (read that wiki page, the link) They also need more acid than dogs, for urinary health. Urinary problems seem to present more in male cats on vegan diets than females, PHified vegan cat foods are available which give the animal more acid. Vegan cat foods also contain synthetic taurine. Synthetic taurine is often added to animal foods containing meat too, I think the taurine kind of goes away when the meat is cooked. Please go here for more info on cat and dog food.

The reason I would have my companions be vegan is not entirely because of the same reasons I am a vegetarian. It would be because whatever meat the FDA or whomever deems unfit for human consumption, often gets thrown into companion animal food. I would be choosing a vegan diet for my friends for their own safety, I would not want them to eat diseased meat, I would not want them to eat anything that was unsafe for humans. I believe we should treat animals as friends, not things to give your leftovers or scraps to.

This is mostly unrelated, but please visit this site to learn about the cruel acts performed against circus elephants and visit this one to see how they can be living in peace instead of fear.

Also unrelated, check out this cool music video, it's a pretty good song too, and it's knitting related!

I just bought The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and The Chrysalids. I'm in the middle of many books right now. Wicked, Life of Pi, The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats, Possessing Genius, to name a few, I'm sure there's more. I seem to get distracted by new books
a lot, or I lose the ones I'm reading, or something happens to make me forget about reading for a while and I forget that I'm already reading something the next time I want to read and I pick up something new.

I bought the latest Interweave, and Wrap Style, which I have been wanting for ages. I finally got a look a scarf style, it's just not all that impressive really, maybe one day when I have more money to throw around I'll get it, I think I need to look through it again. I looked through the new Lace Style, it's quite impressive, there's some really beautiful stuff in that one, I think I'll wait till I can get it cheaper though.

I made yarn, from scratch. It's pretty damn good if I do say so myself. I also made a Kate the Cat for the Loganator. As well as a Le'Slouch in teal/turquoise Cascade 220 that was originally meant for a One Skein Wonder, which reminds me, I also made a One Skein Wonder in purple Cascade 220. No pictures today, maybe another day.

I was given a swift as a birthday present from my mother. I just put my name on a waiting list and my mom offered to pay for it as a birthday present. By the way, I turned seventeen on January 14th. Woo.

Holy crap, was that a blog post? I think it was. Don't know where the hell that came from. Bye.

PS Have a kitty!

And I'm only seventeen... I've seen way more than 94 movies in my life, they're just not on the list. I love Tarantino and Hannibal movies, so my list will grow exponentially as soon as I can find them at the damn rental place. I watch movies a lot. Especially since I started knitting. Movies are good for knitting because you don't have to touch the remote for a long time. I watch movies when there's nothing else on TV.

Next post will feature something I made, something I bought and something that I was given. All knitting related too!
