FO!! Holy moly!

10 Sep

Okay I hope you are ready for a good one here folks. I hope you’re sitting down for this… I completely finished two baby sweaters (that were really done in feb or march)!!. My coworker, who is letting me sell my “Hknits” knitted items under her vendor company at my office at the hospital, asked to see some of work via pics and I said I could bring in the purple striped baby sweater for her to see and feel. ::I’m really jazzed here at this point – insert big re-donk-ulous smile here::

So. I sewed on buttons in both, after a trip to Walmart at 9pm because I realized after I sewed one purple button on with white thread that it just wouldn’t work out after all. Ha!! So, after shopping like a poor college student, buying on one spool of thread, 2 ramen noodles and three packets of salmon, I finished the buttons. I was also able to weave in the ends on both sweaters and sewed in my “iow to wash label” on the nice purple striped sweater. (Pics below including my work table at the time ::sigh::)

Before all if this finishing that was going on, I had to go through every months photo album that was on my lap top so I could take my iPad in to work tomorrow to show Karen my previous work in knitting. (Pic below)

And after that, i had to FIND those two bay sweaters (omg lol). So I cleaned out my knitting bag aka, catch-all-things-that-have-to-do-with-knitting bag. (See pic for the hot mess).

Quick cliff notes: I decided to take my yarn I really won’t be using again and donate it to the ladies at the hospital who would want to knit or Crochet the babies hats and such. So that’s the pic with the bags of yarn. Also, I added to the purple striped sweater a little CARE KIT (I know, I know) with extra yarn that was used on in the sweater and two extra purple buttons and nearly tucked it in a little Baggie. I hope to add those little touches to my knitted Garments for sale at the office. I have also included a pic of the photo stream album I created of my knitted work over the last two years (some things I can’t find pics of unfortunately). I also wet blocked the two sweaters to get a better shape in them. :). I’m so good tonight.

Take care











I can only count on my knitting

Life has not been easy lately. This are getting thrown at me left and right, I don’t know what up or down is anymore. Knitting is keeping it together for me now. I just sit and docs in this one thing, one row, one stitch at a time. The sweater will keep growing as will my life 🙂 it all comes together at the end.

Eeekk! So excited!

Soooo excited. Just got an email from a journalist from a local newspaper in my town saying he wants to write an article about the knitting club and wants to come taken pictures for the article at our next meeting! Ahh! So cool. Hopefully his will draw more knitters and crocheters out to my (our, mine and Jens) club :).

In other knitting news, I picked up the green Shepards wool “yoda” baby sweater that has all of four garter stitch rows done. Lol. The back is done and so is the front right panel. Ugh…. The sewing and the finishing… Oh the drama ( in my best old school actress voice withe my hand across my forehead)

Stop the presses!!!

17 Aug

Holy cow, it has been awhile my friends. My iPhone 4S just got fixed and I have a case on my iPad mini so I can now update my blog from the train with pics more often.

I have been working full time and over time and have no time to knit. I’m sooo tired by the time I get home that I just veg out on the couch and fall asleep about 9 everything. Ugh

I started knitting a baby “yoda” sweater for a girlfriend of mine…but I’m only four rows (yes four) in. Haha so I guess it’s not really started… I am still knitting my boyfriend sweater. Still. It has been the absolute perfect weather for it here lately in nj. So it seems I may not be able to wear my boyfriend sweater at all this year. Ha. Go figure

Thanks do reading, glad to be back!
