Knitting Pretty
Tuesday, June 5, 2007
I got one of the washcloths done on Sunday. I really love this pattern despite the fact my fingers hurt for a little while after doing it. Here's the finished project.

It's weird though, I don't know why it leans to one side like that. On another note, Kiya gave her approval of the yarn.

I show pictures of my cats like some people show pictures of there kids. Typical behavior though, as I do not want children my cats are fitting into the catagory for me to "nurture". Basic psychology. -=giggle=-

I feel a ton better. Work has been extremely busy and I have basically been coming home and hanging out with Grim. Other than finishing the washcloth, I have not been doing much knitting. I'll probably work on another cloth tomorrow. I want to clear out all my promised knits so that I can start making the stuff I want for summer. I have been shopping for yarn for the bathing suit pattern. Fixation won out, and I found it at yarnmarket for $4.95. Seems expensive but I shopped around and can't find anything that has the same yardage and the shipping won't bite me in the arse. So here is what I am going to make the bathing suit out of. Oh, what bathing suit you ask ? This one. Here's the yarn I have been looking at for it. It's dye lot 3628-Yankee Red. Pretty eh ?

Oh Yea! On Sunday, I went to buy cloves from the Gas Station. They have been doing construction in the lot lately so I guess they let this organization set up their benefit sale there. I searched through the books and I found every single book on my to read list. Feminine Mystique, Wuthering Heights, Pride & Prejudice, Devil's Advocate, 3 Shakespeare Books, and A WWII book for Grim.

Then to the library where I got Mansfield Park - Jane Austin for KTC. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on CD so I have something to listen to at work. I'll probably write a review on the Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire when I have a little bit more time. Anyways, I think that's pretty much it for now. Less than a month now and I will be on vacation.. God I can't wait. -=giggle=-

    Interesting to see how the bathing suit turns out. Let us know how it wears.

    The washcloth came out well… I guess once you block it… it won’t lean to side. Oh yes… kitty approval is always the best….lol. Naughty Needle... you say… I checked out the yarn…and I believe its what I’ve been looking for.. I like the fact that it has some elasticity…. Looking forward to seeing the bathing suit. Thanks for the link..

    Ohh..I like the bathing suit! It's just cute!

    I agree with Sheila, that once you block it, it might go into proper shape. You might be knitting it REALLY tightly. Try a bigger size needle.

    ..oh yeah, and cat's aren't as messy as kids either :D.
