Found my pattern so the knitting is back on. YAY!

I really want to make that pencil skirt from kitty. I can't afford bamboo yarn though that would be positively scrumcious. Any suggestions as to anything else I could use?

trades, dyes, and weaves

Back agian.

The skull scarf is going well. Half of it is finished and a quarter of the next half is finished. I miss placed my pattern for a week so I couldn't finish it. I was suprised to realize I handled the pattern every day that it was missing and hadn't even realized it haha. I had used the back of it to write out my weaving pattern for class and had been using it daily for that. That project it done hurray. I really like weaving. I'll take a picture and show you the first sampler I did. Its got some mistakes but I love the colors and had fun making it. Its a shame looms cost a whopper or I'd be begging to get one this christmas. Maybe next year... probubly not.

So ya. Knitting is back underway. Hopefully I'll get up to weaving this weekend. Tomorrow we are starting a yarn dying section in fibers. YAY! granted we're using it for weaving I can't wait to experiment this x-mas break on my own. I need to make a bunch of hats for trading purposes.

Walt wants a hat, I want some of his bowls and a watering can.
I want some of brittany's beer glasses, don't know what she might want yet.
some other people have asked about hats but I can't think who off the top of my head.

I think I'll make a bunch and have them at the ready so people can just choose.

Chicken little


Things seem to keep getting away from me this semester. I haven't been on top of anything. My classes, my blogging, my knitting, my relationships. It sort of feels like everything is coming crashing down around me leaving me feeling a lot like chicken little.

So I have been trying to take the bull by the horns and get back on top of things. I am caught up in school agian and started knitting agian yesterday. I missed it so much I can't begin to tell you.

I am working on a skull scarf from knitty. I really like it the pattern is easy to understand and fast to knit so hopefully I can get it done quickly. haha.

Speaking of knitty I am in love with a skirt from the new knitty. Its a pencil skirt. Amazing. I am temted to work on that this winter break since I will be at home most of the break.

What else. Nothing to report really been pretty well entangled in school and making friends and am currently trying to just get in a groove to finish out this semester. I am hoping next semster I will be much more organised and on top of the game.
