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.

Here, have a meme, to make up for the fact that I've done almost no knitting in the past month...

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?

Well I would have been eight... Would have just been getting out of third grade. Uhh, yeah can't really remember that far back. I learned my first bits of french that year.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?

1. Make a snack for work
2. Drink lots of water
3. Finish this post
4. Go to work
5. Possibly get some cleaning done when I get home, but probably not because it will be late

3) Snacks I enjoy:

Dark chocolate, honey flavoured stuff, cookies involving chocolate, brownies (that can be a snack, right)

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

1. Buy a house... in the country... with a bigass farm
2. Get a couple dogs and a few cats.
3. Start a hemp farm as well has manufacturing plant and textiles mill.
4. Go travel with some friends. Finally see outside of Canada.
5. Start shopping 100% free trade, organic, free-range and as local as possible.
6. I might quit my job but maybe not right away. I like my job.

5) Places I have lived:

Saskatoon and Calgary.

6) Jobs I have had:

Pretty much all Retail Salesperson.

I tag Dad... and anyone else who wants to do it. Leave me a comment if you do so I can check it out!

Lilacs are Blooming

Been kinda busy lately, I'm slowly recovering my social life again. I also just started a new job a couple weeks ago.

I have been knitting, I finished my cable twist socks and started a new stole. I'll have pictures soon hopefully.

Away From Home

In Lloydminister
Hey all, I'm in Lloydminister for some family stuff. Just chillin in my motel room. So that means I don't really have any good knitting content (ie photos, I forgot my transfer cord) for you, although I have been knitting.

I brought my dad's socks and my cable twist socks with me. I've been having second thoughts on dad's socks, I'd like to start them again but have them on one long circular instead, I've been doing this with my second cable twist socks and I'm finding that it's going a lot quicker and smoother. I'd also like to start over because I casted on way too flippin tight, it's a shame though, I'm past the heel already. Not a big deal, I wasn't totally happy with them anyway.

April Flurries?

I figured, since everyone else is doing it, I'd show you a ground shot of Calgary's progress on spring.
Yeah, we're not doing as good, it's been snowing every day. I found a little melted patch on my backyard lawn and the rest is all snow. (see how my Merrel treads are snowflakes?? Cute huh?)

Here's some progress/detail shots of Dad's orange socks, I'm past the heel now.

Before I go, you must see pictures of my new baby MacBook!
Click to enlarge. He's a pretty one.

ETA: Sorry about the new layout guys, the template that I had was cutting off my pictures so I've switched to a boring but wider one for now. Hopefully I'll have a nice new one up soon. I just have to figure out how the hell this whole switching templates thing works.


ETA3: I think I'm pretty much done fixing things, let me know what you think!

I am pretty sick, I haven't been able to talk since yesterday morning and I'm coughing like crazy...

Somebody come make me some soup...

Keeping my word

I seem to be doing okay at this blogging regularly thing.

Here's that modeled shot of the Montego Bay scarf I promised:
Montego Bay Scarf
Yeah, I'm terrible at taking pictures of myself. Also, that mirror is filthy. Some day I'll have a better one, but for now, that'll have to do.

This is the wrap for my mother that I've been working on for I think two years. I'd have it done by now but I'm having hard time staying motivated, all I've got left is the ties. It's only 1x1 ribbing but I'm finding it excruciatingly boring.
Mom's Wrap
It's nice though, I think it'll look great on my mom.

This is my version of the Anthropologie Inspired capelet. I'm really liking this project so far, it's working up lightning fast because of the bulky yarn.
Anthropologie Inspired CapeletPretty Brooch
The brooch is pretty, no? I found it in my room one day while I was trying to get a little organized. I'm planning to use it as a closure for the capelet instead of a button or something. It's also got a little dangly pearl drop on the bottom.

I think that's all I've got for you right now, see you later.

Spring Cleaning

So I just deleted somewhere around 13 old blog posts, they were either irrelevant, or irrelevant and stupid.

I have been spring cleaning a lot lately, but it's not really in the physical sense. In other words, my living space is still a disaster. I've been doing mostly electronic organizing. I've been photo cataloguing all of my yarn and my knitting projects and posting all of these photos to flickr as well as ravelry with descriptions.

So that means theres a lot to see on my Ravelry account, but not on here... yet.

I've got my Montego Bay scarf finished, I need a modeled shot of it. Here are a couple of things I'm working on right now.

Some orange socks for dad:
Basic Cabled Socks for Dad

My Green Shedir:
Shedir Hat

And mom's wrap:
It's a Wrap! For Mom

Well, that's about all I've got for you right now, more next time.

I'm back, hopefully for good this time. I know, I say that every time don't I? I've been a little busy but things are starting to slow down a bit and I now have the technology to write proper blog posts.

I just got a new computer, it's a Macbook, it's white, I'll have pictures of it up shortly. I love it, it's my baby. I also figured my camera out, so I have pictures and everything now. Yays!

So I've started and finished my Montego Bay Scarf, it's insanely long but I love it. Montego Bay Scarf - Handmaiden Sea Silk
I've been wearing it a lot lately with our spastic Calgary weather. I still want to give it a bath and block it out. See if the fabric changes at all. I'll also have a modeled photo up soon.

I haven't really be knitting all that much lately I guess. I'm still working on my NaKniSweMo sweater, I don't think I'll be calling it that anymore though, haha oops. I've had the urge to work on socks lately though, I think I'll try to finish up the orange Earl Grey socks for dad. Here's a photo.

They'll be nice to work on.

Okay, so this blog post sucked but they'll get better, I promise.
