New look, New knit?

Posted in Baby, Knitting, Sweater at 3:07 am by Jennie

Thought I’d change up the look of the site a bit. Maybe it’ll go better with my new adventurous self. ehh…who knows. Anywho, this is my first non-sock project that isn’t a scarf or hat and I’m super excited. My very good gal pal is expecting and I thought this was the perfect time to learn some new techniques and to get over my fear of actual garments. So here you have my almost finished Child’s Placket Sweater

Child's Placket Sweater

I couldn’t wrap my head around the neck part, so it’s gonna have to be fudged. I’m gonna try to do the top in the yellow so it’ll at least have some balance. I had many hair pulling moments with this project but after attaching the arms and kitchenering them I’m a-ok now. 🙂

Movie: You Don't Mess With the Zohan

You Don’t Mess With the Zohan

If like stupid funny than go watch this movie! Some scenes are so ridiculously dumb they’re funny. There were so many people in there of all ages and I mean all ages. I was really surprised at how many people in their twenties were out watching it with their parents. hmmm.

My [rating:3.5]

Because sometimes you just gotta stupidly laugh out loud and it’s okay because someone in the audience is laughing out loud in such a weird funny way. Yeah, don’t all movies have that weird person?!?

Getting things done…

books

Yay! for new books, but wait!?! What’s that lurking behind the fun new books? Yes…sadly I have to buck down and start prepping for the GRE… Hopefully I’ll get a decent score. 🙂

Do not fret, I love my knitting. I’m flipping through 2-at-a-Time Socks and there are some interesting patterns. Sooo…do I really need this book? Probably not. There’s a wealth of free information on the web but I’m just a huge book hoarder. Take a look, wha-da-ya think?

2 at once

Sadly I’m using two different balls of Noro Kureyon sock yarn so I’ll have to do another set of socks but then again, that means I’ll have two new pairs. Yippee!! I thought I wouldn’t like working with the Noro because it isn’t a soft yarn. But I’m really enjoying the whole process. Experiencing a new technique and new type of wool.

More stitch marker fun…I just love working with my hands.

Green Vacation

Have a great rest of the weekend!! 😀

Okay, I am a sucker for funny T’s. Especially if they are a steal. I always try to hold out for one of their sales. And hurray! Threadless.com is having one of their sales this week. I picked up quite a few. A lot of them are only $10. These are some of the silly ones I picked up…

Go get some T’s!!!
