on the ball

I may or may not have lied about the holiday breakdown, but let's get real here.. I actually was knitting, and not just writing about it. Also, I found my camera (right where I left it in my Camelbak .. )

Here is what I've done:

Several lovelies-- a few hats, a cowl, and some mittens. There seems to be an unintentional tweed theme. What can I say? I can't resist a good tweed yarn ;) It is so cozy! Details on the FOs later when the ends are weaved in, they are blocked, and properly photographed.

I've really and truly been lagging on the project page front, but here's a little peak at a couple of sweaters I finished around late spring/early summer.

Today, I was delighted to shop Cyber Monday over at the Knitpicks website where I claimed several skeins of yarn at a low, low cost. I also threw in some stitch markers (mine grew feet and walked off somewhere ::shifty eyes:: ) and a lint shaver. My sweaters are all in need of a good shave. Hello, weekend project! My goodies should arrive later by Friday-ish, having splurged for 3-day shipping. Yay!

I leave you with a cake that I made this weekend for a baby shower. It was so fun to make a cake at home with my supplies, using actual creativity that is lost in grocery store decorating. It was delightful :) 

Have a good week!

return from hiatus

I'm baaaack. Okay, so I am in the last month of my college career. It is exciting and terrifying. I think I might be a terrible adult and that sucks. It is taking every ounce of my willpower to not completely ignore my studying and homework assignments. Two of which are due within the next week.. ah!! (Hm, I need to get on that.)

Also, I have misplaced my camera so I am very behind with updating both this blog and my ravelry page. I think it must be hiding in my room under all my WIPs and clothes. My room is far too small for how much fibery goodness I have acquired over that past 4 years at school.

Ohhh.. I'm engaged now too! To Mr. K, of course. The big day will probably be early- to mid-2013. You will, of course, get the latest details (if I can find my camera, hurumph) <-- So no ring picture for you yet, sorry.

I am greatly overwhelmed at present. I am taking every opportunity to get Giftmas knitting/crocheting/crafting done and it is my only link to sanity. I have a few things to show you, which I will capture with the camera on my phone (which isn't actually that bad fortunately! 5 whole mega pixels!)

I shall return with the Giftmas breakdown in a couple days, so come back soon :o)
