FO: Twilight Tube Socks

I’ve done so much knitting this week that my hands hurt and I can’t knit tonight. 😦 I did a round on my latest socks while at dinner tonight and it was like torture to my poor hands.

But… I do have a finished object to show for the pain! 🙂

Name: Twilight Tube Socks
Made for: Shawna
Pattern: I used the toe from Lynn H’s Toe Up Socks pattern and then just winged the rest…
Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug… Summer Berries (I think)
Needles: US 3 dpns
Verdict: Loved doing a tube sock! The yarn is lovely to work with and the colors a beautiful but I don’t like the way the color pools. The recipient loved them though.
Why the name? The bulk of the socks were knitted while I listened to the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Great book, btw.

In other news, I’m serving as Foster Mama to my grandpa’s cat, Bo. He’s sick and has had to have daily meds and stuff. Since Gramps is 93 and wouldn’t even know how to begin giving a cat meds, Bo has been with me for the last week and a half. We’re not sure what’s going to happen now though because it turns out that the lump he’s got on his shoulder is a sarcoma and needs to be removed along with his leg. But that’ll be a $1,000 surgery which of course I can’t afford nor can my mom or my grandpa. Anyone know of a vet in Michigan who does pro-bono work? 😦 I mean look at this face…

Knitterpalooza Revisited

Knitterpalooza was a smashing success. 🙂 I didn’t plan on getting to go to the cookout/knit-in part of it beccause I was scheduled to work until 6:00, but when at 3:30ish all of our customers at the shop were gone and headed to Kristi’s house Rob told me to go. 🙂 (Thanks, Rob!) Kristi throws a great cookout, Noel is still the Hubby of the Year, and Kelli still gives the best hugs! So I got to go and join in all of the fun and even won a door prize! Wee! Before I get to the goodies though… check out our fabulous group of knitters…
We're sexy and we know it...

And of course I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of my boyfriend Otis…
Such a stud...

Now the goodies! My door prize was a Everything-But-The-Knitting-Sock Bag made by Miss. Amby who I finally got to meet in person. 🙂

Here it is closed…
Cuteness!

And with my own loot inside of it…
Perfect!

It came with a notions kit in a tin as well as a crochet hook (in it’s own little pocket, so handy!)…
So handy!

The notions kit…
I love it...

In a few words… I LOVE THIS BAG! 🙂 Seriously, not only is it cute, but it’s well made and it’s the perfect size. I’m currently carrying around my Ravyn’s Scarf O’ Pinkness as well as my current socks and notions in it. Want one? You can buy one at Amby’s Etsy shop.

So yeah, Knitterpalooza was a blast and I’m looking forward to next year!

As for my own craftiness… I recently made a new tee shirt…
So true...

When Ravyn saw it, she looked at me and said, “Well, that’s what you do, right?” hehe…

Ravyn’s Scarf O’ Pinkness is growing… That would be Alex the Spaz Puppy checking it out. 🙂
Pink, pink, and more pink...

That’s about it for now. 🙂 I’ve got a season finale of Saving Grace to watch now. 🙂
