Saturday Special

The Saturday Market Bag is finished. Another check mark on my “To Do List” of knitting. Sweet.

It was an easy knit despite the 4 false starts I had. Inevitably with lace if you don’t use safety lines your going to screw up and have to frog the whole thing. After awhile it got to be ridiculous so I put in the lines and had no trouble from then on. When I finished one side of the bag I was mildly concerned that it wouldn’t be big enough so I added an extra set of lace repeats to each side. I shouldn’t have worried because the tote stretches out even when it looks like it won’t. I was able to fit 10 skeins of yarn into the bag easily. The holes are not too big so as long as I’m not storing straight needles or pens inside of it I should be good to go.

Yarn: Sugar and Cream in “Summer Splash”. The bag took less than 2 skeins even with the extra repeats.
Pattern: Magknits June 2006 issue.

Happy Father's Day

Here is a nice closeup shot of the DNA scarf I made for my Dad. I thought I'd continue on the science theme that I did last year with his Doctor Who Scarf. Hope you enjoy it Dad. Love you lots!

Headline News

After a few days of knitting I finally broke down. I am simply incapable of being a one project girl. As a result of this meltdown I was compelled to start something different. I took a break from finishing my father's day gift and started/completed a hat. My ever trusty Netflix supplied me with a marathon of Alias episodes for my viewing pleasure so while watching them I cast on and knit the SnBN newsboy. Huzzah!

In other news my kitty has made it her life's mission to knock everything off of any available surface so that she can nap on it. She cleared a coffee table, a chair, and part of my desk all in an effort to stretch out. I may as well be living with a dog the way she's going.

Present and Future Works in Progress

Some of my current knitting. I need to end my habit of beginning new projects long before I've finished the ones I am working on.

Right now, I have four active projects and countless nonnative ones rotting in a yarn pile somewhere. The top one is my Tubey sweater; it is the closest to completion of all my wip’s. Next is my lacy scarf that will eventually be done someday. Perhaps some day after that I may even properly block the thing. Who knows? My rainbow yarn project is being made into a mosaic bag that will be just big enough to carry the essentials: wallet, keys, phone, lip-gloss, and taser. My final project is my Father’s day gift but that will not be described or pictured here just in case Dad is reading this.

I promised myself that I would not start another project until after I have completed at least one of the former ones listed here. As soon as they are I already have 4 projects lined up. First is a modular scarf made out of some fantastic Noro that I picked up and is pictured below.

After that comes the new Magknits Market bag, SnBN Newsboy cap, and Knitty Topi out of yarns I picked up while in the Rio Grande.
