Wow!!! It's been ages...
I have been distracted over at Sparkpeople.com.... Love that site! My focus has been away from the hooks and needles ... *gasp*! Can you believe? whoa! Been entertaining the prospect of becoming a runner... the Couch to 5k program... it is found on coolrunning.com... and Let me tell ya, it is a challenge like none other! whoa! But I stuck to it... and completed it! YEAH! Now I am on to the ONE HOUR RUNNER.
In the meantime, I have been sock-ing it! yep.... making socks... KNIT socks!! But they sorta kinda hurt my feet? I have made a few pairs... and then rushed out to get more and more yarn... Tofutsee etc... and then POOF... the second sockitis hit me! I have one sock that is mateless... poor thing.. and it happens to be the one I made for dd! ahhaha! I wonder if her feet have grown? I MUST get to casting on the second sock!!! I need inspiration and motivation!
I am also trying desperately to learn to KNIT mittens.. YES, YES.. I can crochet them.. and in the interim of my third attempt.. I did resort to Crochetting a pair of those fingerless gloves with the convertible top mitten. Yep... they were done in a nice simply soft brite blue yarn... yeah!
After visiting a local yarn store, the owner truly encouraged me to try again at the knit mitten thang... because she basically said if I can do SOCKS... then I, of course, I could do a mitten!!!! alrighty then... I shall search for a pattern to make..... yet again... I have yet to attempt to change colors in a knit project... there is just so much for me to learn in the area of knitting!
Of course.... bun covers for the dancers are keeping my busy too!! Basically I have got into a routine of refilling the dwindling box over at the dance studio on or near the first of every month. It's been working out pretty well for me. I truly appreciate the fact that the owner allows me to sell them! Every little bit that we can get to go toward that tuition helps! cuz...it's rather costly to have a dancer in competitions! phew! can I get a "ca-ching, ca-ching?"
Oh.... PODCASTS... do you listen to podcasts? I have been growing fond of A YARN THING by MARLY... it's real entertaining! You should check it out!
I know, I know...where are the pictures??? well, haven't got around to that yet! But I should! Got myself a nice Nikon d40x to do the handy photography!
