I got the Mason Dixon book not long ago and I've become obsessed with stuff from it. I knit a baby bib and intend to knit more of them.... Usually I'm not a big fan of garter stitch, but it has its uses.
I've also never in my dreams thought I'd want to knit a blanket. But I started a log cabin blanket to use up some of my scrap of Patons Wool. I just need to make room for the Peace Fleece that has exploded upon my yarn stash. I'm quite enjoying doing it and this way I get to keep just a bit of the projects I've done. Each color represents a finished sold project to me. =) It's kind of fun. Also I keep changing colors and it's coming out rather neat.
Also last week I went on a throwing things away spree and I threw out all my old finished objects that had things wrong with them or things that no one would ever want. It was all in the name of practice and it's nice not to have those things staring me in the face anymore.
I've been working on a cabled vest for my husband off and on. I was hoping to have it done before it got cold, but that didn't happen. I dropped some stitches in the cable. =( So I had a friend help me frog it, but now I have no idea what row I'm on. The back of the vest is miles and miles of stockinette so I'm working on that for now. I'd love to get it done before Christmas.
After an 8 week or more hiatus I have returned. I've been working on some person things. I've started a top for myself. Lately I've been on a dishcloth kick. I've two different ones on needles right now. I'm going to start a vest for my hubby soon and I've got a little sweater in progress for my littlest one.
This does not mean that I'm not able to put those things aside and work on something for someone. I am opening back up for customs with the expectation that I'm not quite as fast as I used to be. I'm getting there, but not quite yet. Your object should be in your hand though 2 weeks after I start.
Things that I still have for sale at the moment can be found here
I'm a beta tester for the new site Ravelry and have been spending WAY too much time playing with it. I've been adding projects and yarn to my lists pretty regularly and once they open up you should be able to see most of things I've knit over there.
frootijen your shorties are finished. I finished them yesterday and took some pictures. I will try to get the pictures posted today and the shorties mailed out tomorrow. You are super awesome for being so understanding. =)
I'm hoping today will not be as ridiculously busy as the last 4 days of my life have been. I greatly apologize to everyone. Today may be a tad bit busy, but it should drop off after that. Tomorrow we have some time in the car, so I should have some crochet time to work on cerise_blue's shorties.
But the good news is that we put in an offer on a house and we will be moving in the beginning of July (yes with a one month old...)
So what I'm going to do probably as much as I hate to is I will probably close for customs from June 1-July 31st. That does NOT mean that I won't be knitting and crocheting, but it means I can't promise anything in a reasonable length of time, so would rather not be committed to making something.
I will still accept custom orders up until June 1 (I'm not due till June 14th) as long as it's with the understanding that we are trying to get our house on the market and a few things packed up before the baby gets here and I'm not going to be as quick as normal getting stuff done.
color_so_loud, I started the bunny and I LOVE the color...it's adorable. I need to take a picture. It reminds me of raspberries and cream. It is very soft and perfect for sucking on. However...it is smaller than the other ones I have made, but it's still going to be about 12" from the bottom of the blankie to the top of the head. If that is too big I can start over. Let me know. It goes REALLY quick, so it's not a big deal to pull it out and start again. I know you wanted something more like 9" or 10"
