holy freaking crap

this is going to be short

* i got a package from my SP8 and it was just freaking awesome!! sooo much yarn! and stitch markers! and popcorn!!! I didn't think to snap a pic and everything is put away. I suck. I will however take pics of everything at some point this week. Except for the popcorn....that's gone :-D

* my dear friend Nikki is coming all the way from PA to NM to visit me for my birthday (which is Sunday!) so i'm looking forward to that.

* high stress here due to situations out of our control. Just going with the flow here, dreading phone calls, and watching time go by.

* I think I'm going to have to rip out what I've done so far on my "Something Red" sweater. Things are looking a bit funky. Oh well i was only about 5 inches into it!

They are all my own design and stitched on wool felt. I think i'm going to back them with some cotton and make them into little hanging pillows or something and list them on etsy. Any other suggestions for them?

Knit Cake

I'm just finished and added a new plush to my shop. I've been making these for a couplel years now but not to sell...so we'll see how this goes. They are fun to make at any rate. If I actually *knew* to to write a pattern I would sumbit this to Magknits or Knitty. But for now I'm just gonna sell them.




Yay for knitting!

Bridge Troll

so I have a little website where I make plushies.

That's been taking up a lot of my time lately, getting ready for for the Plush You II event, for which my stuff as to be in my July 20. I sent it out yesterday so hopefully it gets there in time *crosses fingers*

Here's what I sent:

new project

I'm gearing up for a big art show so I've not been around and knitting has taken a backseat to sewing plush.

Today I did buy this pattern I saw it as a kit at Kpixie but I have some yarn I want to try it out with and since it was instant download after payment I cast on while my daughter was napping. The best part is that it's knitted from the top down all in one piece so it seems like it's going to be a pretty quick knit. I'm thinking I might make one for my mom for Christmas as well, after I knit it through once for me we'll see how I feel about the pattern.

I'm debating on buying this kit again for my mom (i really like my mom :-) ) but Kpixie won't wind the silk yarn into balls so it's a bit of a turn off. I don't have a ball winder and i'm a little afraid of attempting to do it myself especially with recycled silk yarn. I dunno, I'm still thinking about it.
