Hiatus

So last week I blew out my hands. I did a crazy marathon knit session on Thursday night while being a television premiere night whore then followed it up on Friday evening with more knitting as well as beading. By the time I went to bed Friday night I was miserable and Monday was the first day I could make fists without pain. Yeah… reminder to self: the tendonitis doesn’t like marathon knitting even if it does result in a sock for Obi Wan Ka-Wessels in record time. I don’t have a picture of said sock yet, and sock number two is patiently waiting for me to be able to grasp things again but it is darn cute. 🙂 His new favorite color is aqua and I had the perfect yarn in my stash. Superwash, worsted weight, varigated with aqua and blue… 🙂 Let’s just hope they fit!

I do have pictures of something I’m quite happy with though… Remember the frog beads I bought while on the last Circle of Brain Weekend?

Those mixed with some other beads I had made this bracelet…

I’m seriously in love with it. 🙂 I should have bought a few extra frogs for earrings and a necklace though. Oh well. 🙂

I think I might be able to knit soon though so I’ll hopefully have some knitting content soon. Doodlebutt’s second birthday is also this week so pictures will be posted! 🙂 I’m also planning to go see Obama on Thursday so who knows, I might get a cool picture or two out of that! 🙂

There’s also potential good news on the homefront but… that’s all I’m saying for now. LOL

WIP: Mama Socks

Photobucket

One down, one to go… fits her perfectly and she’s rather geeked to be finally getting her own pair of hand knit socks so I guess that it’s worth giving up the pretty yarn to her. 🙂

This is my first ever after-thought heel and it worked out pretty well if you ask me. 🙂 We’ll see how it wears! 🙂

In other knitting… I’m still making those darn mini mitered squares out of sock yarn for a blanket… I’m addicted. Maybe by the time it’s blanket sized I’ll have a kid of my own to use it on. LOL It’s smaller than it would be, but I ripped out all of the blocks I’d made before because I decided to be sensible and use bigger needles so I started from scratch. Purty though isn’t it?

Anywho… that’s all for now. The Biggby’s that I’m at is closing early tonight so I’ve gotta get out. 🙂

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 tomorrow… I won’t be there unfortunately but I hope everyone has fun!

So my Backstreet concert last weekend was fabulous. I had a blast and ended up being in the 10th row which wasn’t too shabby (buying tickets through the fan club this year was sort of sketchy and I had no idea where my seats were until I picked up the tickets the day of the show… yikes!). I ended up getting a few really good pictures which made me happy too.

Knitting while waiting for the gates to open…
