Lining up the projects.
Thursday, July 19, 2007
So I have been flipping through magazines and books looking for new patterns I can try. The result is that I have found a bunch of things that I want to make soon. Here's the list that will probably only get bigger.
  • Naughty Needles Bathing Suit
  • Zeeby's Bag from Stitch'n'Bitch
  • Boogie Time - A wristband watch pattern
  • Still on the hunt for a simple knee-high sock pattern.
  • An Enterlac Washcloth (I will make one dammit!)

I have also pulled out the poncho again as I believe I mentioned in my last post. I am still a little confused but I am going to work on it this weekend and see what happens. It's my first real wearable item so if it's botched -=shrugs=- I'll cry. -=giggle=- The library has a copy of "Fitted Knits" waiting for me so I am sure I'll find cute patterns in there as well. I have just been dying to try new things, broaden my horizons a bit.

Oh and by the way. Does anyone know how to successful make a ball out of a skein of yarn ?!?! I spent nearly 2 hours untangling the yarn Emily sent me. I know I did it wrong and knotted the hell out of it. Unfortunately that mean that 1 skein, turned into 4 balls because I couldn't get the damn thing to unravel correctly. Mishaps of a knitter, I suppose. In other news I have updated my reading blog again if you want to take a look.

I think that is about it really. Still waiting on the Ravelry invite (in the words of Hedwig) then again, aren't we all ?

    ooo! an entrelac washcloth, that's a good way to get use to that trick pattern :) *makes mental note to put that on her to-make list as well*

    Get yourself a ball winder to wind center pull balls. It works wonderfully. You can get one off eBay for around $20 and it will be the best $20 for a knitting thing you have ever spent. I hope you are awesome!

    Yes, get a ball winder and swift. At least a ball winder. You could put the skein around the back of a chair.
