Kintting quizzes!

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.
Take this quiz!

Friday's Feast!

Describe your laundry routine. Do you have a certain day when you do it all, or do you just wash whatever you need for the next day?

I just usually wash what I need for the next day. I wear a lot of black so there's usually a load or two of that each week. Everything else just gets washed when there's a lot of that color or I want to wear it.

In your opinion, what age will you be when you’ll consider yourself to truly be old?

Not sure. It's something I've never really thought about. When I get that age, I'll know.

What is one of your goals? Is it short-term, long-term, or both?

A goal of mine is to own my own house. Most defiantly a long term goal!

Main Course
Name something unbelievable you’ve seen or read lately.

Can't think of anything....

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how happy are you today?

3 Just not happy today.

I Almost Lost My Blog!

So....what happens when you don't log into your blog for awhile (like, just over a week?). You forget your password, have to reset it, and about panic when at first you don't see your blog on your list when you first sign in! But alas, it's here and alive! Yay!

So...on the knitting front...

I picked up some yarn at Danner's last week called Maizy. It's made from 82% Corn Fiber, 18% elastic Nylon. Finally, something in a red/black/white combo! (pictures later!)

I've picked up some clearance yarn here and there.

I've also decided to work up an inventory spread sheet of all of my yarns. I am honestly amazed of all I have (and yet I keep buying). I've got yarn in 12 containers, allowing a little bit of room in all of them (two of them have a lot of "growing room").

I've been doing a good amount of knitting. I finished up the Bermuda Sun scarf. It's going to be one of my favorites to wear once it starts getting colder!

I'm a few rows short of being half way done with the baby blanket.

I've been working hard on my charity squares. I'm up to 10 or 11 now, with another one in progress.

Okay, sorry for the not so good blogging, but I blogged, and I'm happy.

Knitting Update

I've been doing a bit of knitting.

I completely frogged the Bermuda Sun scarf. But I'm so glad that I did!

As I was working on it today I noticed that the yellow in the yarn is forming a zig-zag. I hate that I only have a little bit in the skien I'm working with now. I hope that I'll be able to continue the zig-zag when I add in the new skien. Don't you love when your yarn does something that you didn't plan on it doing?

Still working on the baby blanket.

I got some Lion Brand Suede for $.97 today. There was a pattern that I wanted to make that I knew took that yarn but I couldn't remember exactly how much it took. I want to make this bolero that's on Lion Brand's website. I need to get two more skeins and I don't know if I'll be able to do it until Sunday, Monday at the latest. I really hope I can still find it! If not I guess I'll have to look elsewhere and pay a whole lot more or just make something else! We'll see what happens!

Friday's Feast

I've seen these in a few other blogs and thought I'd blog a feast, too!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how polite are you?

I would say 7.

What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?

An avatar that a friend chose. It fit her perfectly.

Who is your favorite cartoon character?

Right now it would have to be She-Ra.

Main Course
Tell about the funniest teacher you ever had.

Most of my teachers were serious. I can't think of one funny teacher!

Complete this sentence: I strongly believe that _fate played a part with where I am today_.

Blogging at Danner's

Thursday afternoon and I'm at Danner's, although I have to leave in a bit for an appointment and then it's back here.

I've been knitting on the baby blanket and I'm nearing the half way point. I love how it's knitting up and the pattern is really easy to follow.

I've also pretty much finished the scarf using the Bernat Matrix. I just have bind off. I'm going to see about making a hat out of the stuff but I'm not sure how well it would turn out. There wouldn't be much shape to the yarn at all and I don't really want to use it as a carry along with something else. I guess this will be one of those trial and error projects.

I've got new yarn to make a scarf out of. I grabbed this one yarn out of the freebie bin at Danner's and I can't remember what it is. But I'm using it at both ends of the scarf and making the main part of the scarf out of Lane Cervinia Caprice in this green shade. I'll post pictures soon.

Okay, I'm off to work on something. Post again later.
