So let’s see… when I last left off I’d begun dyeing yarn and was knitting a set of Noro socks. I finished the socks and Sock #2 turned out with less of a wonky stripe at the heel thankfully. I’m still not thrilled with the thick and thin of Noro especially when dealing with something as fine as sock yarn, but the color is so worth it, I WILL be trying to figure out how they get such beautiful colorways in their dyeing. 🙂

…to finally make my sister a stole/scarf/wrap thingy. 🙂 I’m using the One Skein: A Stole pattern which is free in Ravelry and uber easy yet lovely.

I treated myself to a new camera for my upcoming birthday so I can now take pictures like these…

I went on a much needed vacation during which I fell in love again with St. Joe, MI and taking photographs of it’s beautiful scenery.

Wee Warmer Model

I was checking the length of my Wee Warmers the other day and slipped one on Devin over his jams… I thought he’d want to rip it off right away but he actually liked it and wore it for a while. So of course pictures were taken. 🙂

Darn cute, huh? They should be perfect for the little girl I’m making them for. 🙂

Finally got my Raverly invite. I still really don’t see how people are spending hours and hours on the site and what the big deal is… I looked up one yarn because I have two skeins of it and need a project and I basically found a huge group of people making the exact same two projects… kinda lame… but that’s just my opinion. 🙂 Someone already had my KelKnits username so I used the username from my daily blog since no one ever steals that one from me. 🙂

Anywho… I’ve got knitting up to my eyeballs to work on and no time at all to do it so instead of blogging, I’m going to go knit. 🙂
