Blue Bird Necklace large by yasminellis on Etsy

OMG, I need it. I need it or I will explode. Why would I not need a bluebird necklace made out of a measuring tape? It is full of cute. And I am full of squee.

Struggling and stranded knitting

I don't think it is too strong a statement to say I hate purling in stranded knitting. Hate it.
I think I'm going to try switching to knitting backwards on the purl rows. I'm pretty proficient at doing it so we'll see how it goes. I have never tried doing it while changing colors but it has got to be easier than this. Blah.

I made a short video of me knitting backwards:


This is a great skill to have in your repertoire especially for things like short rows or entrelac.

I am filled with knitty giggles over this



I am a sucker for stop motion. Add knitting to the mix and I am just a mess.

Crush it, baby!

Thank you Rich German for setting it up.

Hiding things from myself

Don't you hate it when you "put something away" and you put it away so well you dont remember where you put it? I've got some test knitting to do and I can not for the life of me find my knitting needles. I have turned this house upside down and it is making me feel a little loco. My knitting needles are mocking me.

I think this medication is making my brain fuzzy. Or I'm just getting old. Whatever.

Long time no see

Well, a lot has happened over the past few months I have been missing from my blog. My mother did pass away on December 23rd, 2009. The grief was and still is overwhelming. I knit my sorrow into a mourning shawl. I knit I did not want to have to think about how bad it hurt. Counting stitches occupied my mind so I just kept knitting. Over the course of my mothers whirlwind illness I knit five hats, a scarf, and three shawls. Mom was always a strong proponent for "no idle hands", I know she would be proud. Working with my hands is helping me heal and I will forever be grateful to Mom for teaching me to be artistic and crafty. I miss you Mominator.
