Almost there!

Well I'm just about ready to work in the final color! Woot! My goal of finishing by the end of the week seems realistic!

Small Update!

Just a quick update on the 'Bashful Butterflies'... I'm making progress. I've just finished working in the 3rd color so I guess I'm around 2/3 of the way through! This thing is going to need some serious blocking! My little yo's are all bumpy! See a pic of the progress below.

I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the week, if everything goes as planned!

Moss, Ferns, and Butterflies

So here's my progress so far on Ann Weaver's 'Moss and Ferns' in Light Brown Hare 'Three Hares'. I'll be posting more pics as I get further along.

I'm progressing slowly on Julia Temiseva's 'Bashful Butterflies', for some reason I can't seem to count properly at the moment, resulting in several frogs and reknits. It is being knit in Unique Sheep's 'Sushi Sock' gradiance set.

More to come!

Return from the dead!

So after several years, many projects, and even more frogs, I've decided to start trying to keep up with the blog again. Who knows how long it will last, I am known for only half-finishing things, after all!

My first update is that I'm doing a lot of contract knitting now. I have several projects going for various designers and companies, some of which I can share, some of which are top secret! One that I'm particularly excited about is a shawl by Ann Weaver. She has not only allowed me to post pics of my progress, but has very emphatically instructed me to do so! Once I get it started and make a little progress, I will make sure to post pictures!

In the meantime, see the pictures below for a hat/glove set for my younger sister (who loves owls) I recently started. The hat and one glove are done, the second glove will be finished after I get some of these contract jobs completed.

Keep checking back for more posts! I promise I'll try hard to keep up with it this time!

Blasts from the past!

Here are some of the old projects that were posted on my previous blog. This is just a mishmash of various projects I have done over the past couple of years.

First, we have the classic fingerless mitts. Great for aspiring court reporters in cold classrooms!

I have to include the cute little booties knitted for my adorable niece, Laney. She even had professional pictures taken in them! What an honor! These were based on the Saartje's Booties pattern and turned out just perfect!

Next, we have the teeny, tiny, preemie baby booties knitted for charity. This is just one of several pair I have knitted.
Of course, the only knitting "job" I have ever had, the Christmas stockings for the Wolfe family. I was given a vintage stocking, made by an unknown person from an unknown pattern and asked to recreate it. After much charting and frogging, this is one of the 3 final stockings for the youngest members of the family, all complete with the child's name on the front and birthday on the back.

Well, hope you enjoyed my little trip back in time. Hopefully I can get photos of some of my other projects and post them soon! Have a great day!

Back on the needles!

After a long break of posting my projects (really a long break of needle work period!) I am posting my most recent creation! It is from a book by Christen Haden called "Creepy Cute Crochet". It has adorable little crocheted critters, most of which are perfect for Halloween! So, without further ado, I present to you, "Day of the Dead Guy".

Pretty cute, huh? I thought so! He was super easy to do and took me about an hour and a half or less. My next project will be the ninja, so stay tuned! Let me know what you think!

Re-Open for business!

I closed down my blog last week because I didn't think anyone ever looked at it. Then I was complained to by friends and family who did, in fact, visit it so I opened it back up! I'll try to repost some past projects that were on here before, and recent and current projects as well. This is for you Lindsey!
