Cowls and a WIP!

October 9, 2012

I made this cowl for Katie last month as part of a three-way swap with Andi.

The one I received from Andi fits into my wardrobe perfectly!  I was surprised how spot on she was because I don’t think my ravelry page is a good reflection of my style (I’ve trashed or given away most of the finished objects). Thank you so, so much Andi!  I can’t wait for it to get colder.

Thanks Andi!!!

I was without a portable project for a while so I started a beanie. A few rows in I decided it’d be better as a sweater for Hugo. How dapper would he look in polka dots?!

This weekend I’ll be working the Harvest Festival in Anaheim (the weekend after that will be Del Mar!). It’s Boojiboo’s second to last show of the year and the selection is better than what we have in our online store. If you’re in the area, swing by!

Happy Tuesday!

Have A Good Weekend

Hugo + Some Updates

September 12, 2012

I have five high-quality (non-iPhone) photos of Hugo. Pretty ridiculous considering his face looks like THIS.

THIS face.

His photos made me realize I need to start carrying my DSLR again. The iPhone, while convenient, doesn’t even compare quality-wise. I forgot for a second there ;)

Hugo’s been with us for almost five months now and I’m happy to report that he and Lily are BFFs. I was really concerned I wouldn’t be able to handle two on my own but it’s actually a little easier as they keep each other entertained.  His separation anxiety has disappeared and I think he knows he’s with us for the long haul.

I know I haven’t posted that much craftiness lately but with good reason. I’m putting together a small clothing collection! It’s not for retail or anything major, just my portfolio. I’ve grown a lot since I first started and my portfolio needs to reflect that.

I’ve been able to sneak in some knitting at night and have two projects on the needles. One is a cardigan that hasn’t reached the photographable state yet and the other has to be kept secret until the end of the month.

I have a dentist appointment today and I think they’re going to tell me if busting my jaw is really necessary. Wish me luck.

Santa Barbara with my friends was pretty damn awesome. I’ll spare you the details and just share the few photos I took.

Bird Mittens

August 11, 2012

The right mitt was my first attempt at fair isle one and a half years ago. It sucked. The left mitt, which I just finished yesterday, turned out much better. Even stitches, even tension. I blocked the two together and while the right one improved, the difference between them is still noticeable.

I have a few dresses to finish today and tomorrow I’ll be out and about. Hope you all have a great weekend!

As of Late

I started the Sidewalk Shawl last week during the opening ceremonies. It took a while for me to get used to the written instructions (charts are my preference) but I got the hang of it after a repeat. So far I’m “meh” about the project. I was going to power through it but I think I have to set it aside and work on something else.

Unofficial Ravellenic Project

I finished my pullover (based off this one by Vince) a few weeks ago and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Definitely worth my time and the best part? The yarn was free.

Today I went to The Griddle Cafe with Katie and it was amazing. I ordered the Black Magic Pancakes and was shocked when the waiter brought them out. Seriously, 12″ in diameter. And there were three. She was a lot more responsible and ordered a waffle.

Now I’m off to re-knit these mittens. Lily and Hugo will be nearby, I’m sure. Happy Friday!
