My knitting fears, hopes, dreams, and what comes of them.

New Name

So, I've decided that "Knitty-Gritty" is a little generic and overused, so I'm witching to a term Becky uses quite often: Creative Tangling. ^_^

In other news, my swap partner received! Pics coming soon. <3

A Few Pics

I got around to photographing my StR yarn. God, pictures don't do it justice.

Also, I've been slowly handing out the gifts that were meant for Christmas, and here's a picture of my friend Eilene with her set.

Lastly, Becky recently made what we like to call the Monster Scarf. The thing is at least a foot wide and about ten feet long, made out of burly spun wool. To give you an idea of how long it is, here's Eilene wearing it as a dress.

Also, all of my swap items are packed in a box, ready for mailing. So excited!!

My Socks that Rock yarn came today! I had never seen any in person before, and it is AMAZING! The colors are so vibrant and lovely, and it feels so soft... I hope I can pick a pattern that suits them! I am really excited to start using this yarn...

In other news, Becky and I participated in our residence hall's craft night last night. Sadly, only about four people showed up, but we did manage to send them all home with yarn and needles, as well as some knitting basics. Everyone learned how to cast on and knit, a couple learned how to purl, and one girl was even doing ribbing and binding off by the time we were through. It was a lot of fun.

I have finished EVERYTHING for my swap! I'm going to go pack it now so it'll be ready to send out tomorrow!
