Knit Along

I just joined my first knit along. It's the Triada scarf in the Summer 2005 Interweave knits. If you want to join you can find it here.

I have also joined the Irish Hiking Scarf knit along. The links will also always be on the right side of the screen.

I almost forgot to tell you guys. I scored on a pair of Addi Turbo's. At Needlepoint Joint they have punch cards. For every $100 you spend you get $10 of your next purchase. I wasn't quite finished punching my second card there and had already used my first one for part of todays purchase. Well, the woman that was helping me started to punch today's purchase and realized that I'd be starting a new card. She used the second card for todays purchase and then put the full amount of the purchase on the new card! So I got an extra $10 off and more than halfway on a new card. I ended up getting a total of $20 off my purchase which included a $25 pair of Addi Turbo's. Essentially I got those for $5. I almost couldn't believe how lucky I was.

Well I have things that I have to do before I can do any knitting so I'll blog to you all later.

I just found the funniest site I've seen in a very long time. Go look. I'll wait.

To me that is the most hilarious thing I've seen in a while. that people are actually that serious about something so ludicrous. It's just amazing.

I laughed for about 10 minutes when I saw that. They have correspondence courses.

Long Awaited Pics

Please be forwarned there are a lot of pics in this post so if you have a slow connection it may take quite a while for this particular page to load. So with no further ado.

I have finally recieved my Knit Picks order. I'm so excited I can hardly sit here and type.

Also pictured is the hand painted mohair and the solid color that I plan on using for my shawl.

I have also finished seaming up my 3 yr size baby sweater. Here it is pre-blocking. I'll prolly be doing that on Wednesday since I have the day off work. Click on the pic for a close up and for better color.

As stated earlier I finally figured out the macro setting on my camera so here are pics of the beaded stitch markers that I have made so far. I do plan on selling these online for approx $2/pair. Do you guys think that's too much?

Welp that's it for tonight. I'll have more to share tomorrow I'm sure. I'm off to work on some of that boring stockinette stitch I was muttering about earlier so that I can play with some of my new yummy yarns.


Book Meme

Just a funny little meme for the day, cause I couldn't think of anything else to blog about today:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"I make my own trail wherever I go."

That was not in fact from the first book that I grabbed. However pg 123 of the first book that I grabbed is a layout of channels and show times for Sat 04/09/2005. No sentences there. The quote is from my datebook.

BTW I figured out how to use the macro function on my digital camera so look for pics later tonight. I know, I know. I said that Saturday but I was ill yesterday and didn't go any further from my bed than the bathroom.
