Knit Michigan

Anyone going to Knit Michigan this year? Carpooling?

I’ve been trying for the last two hours to get a report written but my attention span isn’t cooperating. Then I discovered something that honestly has my feelings pretty damn hurt so I figured that avoidance and posting pictures in my blog might help. THEN I’ll get back to my report. *nods*

My ShiBui socks are finally done. They’re for my mom. They were supposed to be for me but she saw the first one a few months ago and went “Oooh!” so yeah… they’re hers. 🙂 I did the Kitchner Stitch for the first time ever (first time successfully, that is). 🙂

Another first… I started a pair of mittens. This artic weather has gotten to me and inspired pretty mittens. Every time I make a toe up sock I think, “Wow this would make a cool mitten…” and then I keep on knitting it into a sock. But I’ve been meaning for a while to turn some gifted yarn of mine into a pair of mittens and just never did it. The yarn below isn’t the gifted yarn because I wasn’t in the mood to use it, but it’s still a mitten and I’m pretty happy with it so far.

The yarn is Crystal Palace Merino 5 (100% Superwash Merino). I bought 4 balls of it on the Traverse City COB trip last April. The pattern is the basic mitten from The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Bud with a Bamboo Stitch (I think) added to one side for prettiness.

The cold has also brought plenty of photo opps…

Rave turned 9 a few weeks ago…

Doodlebutt took the opportunity to spread big sister’s yarn all over the living room while we were playing a game and no one was paying too much attention to him. LOL

Rave and Wessels eventually dicovered the mess… LOL

It took Grandma all evening to re-wind the yarn… you can see her in the background of this picture that Wessels took of Aunt Kellie. 🙂

Another fan of yarn is my friend Shawn’s kitty Lola… she loooooves to “help me” knit and spent New Years Day helping me out.

I also have a new boyfriend. This is Hammy. He loves me long time.

And just because it’s cute… Doodlebutt showing us just what he might look like as an annoyed teenager one day. Can’t you just hear him saying “Aunt Kellllllllieee!” with a sigh and a roll of the eyes? LOL

That’s all for now. I really do have work to try and get done. No more knitting, blogging or facebooking until my report is finished. 🙂
