Houston, we have a PROBLEM!

Hey! Long while, time to talk. So I tried to knit this pair or anke socks the other day. I knit the first sock, then started the 2nd one. I did a really bad job at estimating how much yarn i had left! So, on sock is like 2 in. shorter than the other! lol :] Gotta love being a human and making mistakes! I'm actually becoming quite addicted to knitting socks!! You all are going to think I am weird, but my favorite part is the heel turn! lol. It's nice to switch from knitting in a circle, to knitting flat, to knitting in a cirle. Well, at least for me it is. :] I started another pair of socks the same, and I DO have enough yarn! I'm so happy, I could dance, but I'm being lazy at the moment, so I will refrain! lol.

As far as WIP's, I have a garter stitch scarf with Lion Brand Homespun on size 17's, and a seed stitch scarf on size 7's. I just finished the snake scarf! If looks soooo cute! I don't know what I would do with out www.knittingpatterncentral.com It is the best place! Also, I finished the stickinette/garter stitch scarf. Both are for my two little nephews.

So how is the weather! It is actually starting to knock back the heat a touch here. It has been quite tolerable the past few days! And not a better time cuz I start school on Monday! EEEK! But, I am a senior, so it is all good! Except for having one of the worst and most pious gasbag of a teacher for Algebra 2. Ugh!

TTYL! :-)


Stockinette, snakes, and socks... oh my!!!

I have three things going for me right now.... 1) a stockinette and garter stitch scarf. 2) A scarf in the shape of a snake for my soon-to-be nephew. 3) A pair of socks. I have grown to love the art of knitting! Great things come from it. My friends think I am nuts! I asked my friend if I could teach her how to knit and she told me no because she didn't want to sit around being bored and knitting! I was kind of offended!! It's like people think knitting is only for older women! No offense to any one. Ok well this is short, but I have to go!



Knitting Class and WIM List!

Good afternoon! Today has been a bit slow. Blah! Ok. Well, I started to knit my hat in knitting class Tuesday! It is coming along nicely. No trouble yet! I'm crossing fingers I can get it done without any! lol.

My WIM list keeps getting longer and I just learned how to knit! How exciting! I have scarves, blankets, dishclothes, and bags among the WIM's. The next class I am gonna take is the advanced beginners class where I will knit a baby sweater! Then after that....... suspense....... SOCKS!!!!! I am excited to learn how to knit socks because I found this really cute pattern for footies!!!!!!!!!!!!BMG's Footies!! They are soooo like the best! Hope you have a look and add them to your WIM list! Knitting is the best thing ever! Yes, I promised pics, but I didn't have time to take any. Next time, I will have them hopefully!

First official post (on this blog)!

Hey everyone! This is my first post. I had a blog previously, but I wanted to start a fresh one. So, here it is!! I just started taking a knitting class at the local yarn shop. It is so fun!!!! I cannot wait to knit things. Our project in the class is a hat knit flat instead of in the round. It's fun to sit around with these ladies and knit and laugh! hehe! Also, the teacher recommended that we not buy acrylic yarn to do projects with because the projects will become plasticy after a while. Leave a comment and tell me about your experiences with acrylic yarn, please!! I need all the help I can get. lol. Ok well I don't have any pictures right now, but I will hopefully have some later. Thats all for now!

TTYL! :-)
