Knot Another Tangled Web (3)

There was a drive-by reply to me yesterday by the “mom” which was immediately followed by a hyperdelete and the cancellation of “mom’s” Ravelry account (yet again).  Not many people actually saw the post and were curious about what was said and why.  I didn’t get to see it myself, but thankfully a quick little birdy nabbed a screenshot in the few moments it was available.  So, what did we miss?

Not a whole hell of a lot.  Basically, it’s a copy-n-paste of the Ravelry guidelines that not everyone understands, so it seems.  I was hoping for something more exciting.  Like, an organic cat litter recipe.  Or a step-by-step guide for pissing off potential clients and customers for business owners.

Oh wait.  I think we got that last one.

Snow White in Summer

FINALLY.  The project that seemingly never ended.  After two major errors on my part and a much need hiatus, I finished Ysolda’s Snow White sweater.  Odd timing, but as soon as October comes around, this sweater will get plenty of sunlight.

I used 3.25 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Paris Night (my favorite color way).  You can check out more pictures and notes in my Ravelry project page. I need a drink.

Two Things

One…

And two…

 

(this is the project I promised pictures of a few weeks back, but we just photographed it this morning.)

As for the new design, almost finished.  With the Rocky Horror Picture Show (which was this past Saturday), time just was not as abundant as I would have liked.  I hope to finish this one by the weekend.

Streetwalkers and Buttsocks equal a very busy New Year

It’s late, but Happy New Year!  I’m almost sad, the holidays came and went so fast, but they can’t last forever (especially that stomach virus I picked up, thanks goodness).

Dyeing has picked up considerably and Wee One’s fifth birthday is just a few days away.  We’re heading down to Disney World and Sea World to celebrate with friends.  Another reason I’ve been dyeing like there’s no tomorrow, as well as my very first craft show/market/bazaar is coming up in February.  I’m excited and nervous.  It’s a local market bazaar which should make good for getting my feet wet. 

The To Dye For! Sock Club members have been receiving their first batch of yarn and so far, so good!  It is such a relief to see that everyone has enjoyed the colorway they have received.  I think I read far too many sock club drama threads on Ravelry and was emotionally preparing myself for failure.  SCORE!  I’m not full of fail!

I have finished some knitting projects, but have been putting off photographing due to the crappy weather we’ve been experiencing. 

I’m off to wind more yarn, but have some eye candy!

(Here is the new yarn in my Etsy Shop:  Streetwalker Sock; 60% Superwash Merino/20% Cashmere/20% Nylon; 390 yards/90 grams)
