I havn't updated in a while, and I'm not sure if this blog, or poeticdream
is connected with Secret Pal, so in sake of the rules, I'm going to update. that and I really don't want to do school work
I'm currently working on a sock. Opal yarn, size 2.5ish needles in a very generic sock pattern. Mainly becuase I want to use up the yarn, and becuase I want to get a jist of knitting socks. Later on, I'm going to do many, pretty sock patterns. The fall knitty was loaded with them. I <3 Socks and you can never have too many socks!
Soon, I'm goign to cast on for my Silk
fingerless gloves!!!! Yes, I am excited. I'm using Debbie Bliss 100% Washable Silk Yarn in a lovly ivory color. I might do some accenting with a brown of sorts, but that's later on...I just need to buy the needles.
I also want to, and this is a horribly crazy idea, make a shawl out of recycled sari silk. I know it will be heavy and a pain to work with, but oh! It will look wonderful!!! As I said, it's a crazy idea.
I really want to do some lace project!!!!
I'm still collecteing plastic bags for knitting. Lol. I have garbage bags full of them! I want to make mats for under the bathtub and some recycled shopping bags.I know I'm going to need a lot. Maybe, during one of my school brakes, I might start casting on...It's just one of those projects taht are in the back of my head.
Other things I want to knit are:
- Fishnets for the Abby.
- OMG-CUTE sweaters and shirts and dresses for the Abby
- The Sunrise sweater from Interweave.
- And, of course, just abuot all the sock patterns I see!
Secret Pal is going wonderfully! My Spoiler is absolutly wonderful. She's from Rochester, so I deffinatly feel some sort of connection with her. She's treated me well, giving me everything from chocolates to *gasp* LUSH!!!!! Needless to say, I'm deffinatly feeling spoiled. I hope I'm going a decent job on my spoilee. I don't think I've made enough contact with her, but I know I've sent her lots of stuff. She loves making wearable art, so I sent her a box just off beads and charms and things that would make wonderful jewlery. I also sent her lots of buttons, stamps and fimo clay. Of course, she received a box of yarn too ^-^ I think I'm going to try and send one or two more things to her.
Well, I think that's about it for an update right now. Schoolwork is learking over me. And, all I really want to do is lay in the AC and knit.
