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!! 😀

Photographic Perfection?

Posted in DIY, Photography, Stitch Markers at 9:42 am by Jennie

I think I like photographing my stitch markers more than I like making them. Then again, they are my current infatuation. At least I get to learn how to use my camera a lot better. Practice will eventually lead to almost perfect or insanity of perfection.

Sparkling Amethyst

I feel so artsy when I photograph. I’ve always wanted to be an artist, but sadly all I can draw are stick figures. Ehhh a girl can dream. 😀

If you have some time come on over and check out my lil’ Etsy shop

Working with my hands

Posted in Accessories, DIY, Stitch Markers at 9:16 pm by Jennie

First off, I would like to thank everyone who left me such kind comforting comments. I feel so close to ya’ll and yet we’ve never met. Strange. 🙂

Not much knitting, but heck, I’m super happy being crafty. What have I been up to? Stitch markers!! They are so fun to make. I made a ton for my newly formed knitting group. Consisting mostly of my coworkers. lol

It is such a joy to twist and turn copper wire into something pretty. A few of my friends suggested I try a sell a few, well guess, what? I freaking sold two sets of my left overs on Etsy. Now I’m on a SM (haha, no dirty thoughts here 😉 ) craze. Don’t know if I’ll keep this up, I tend to get obsessed with a craft but drop it after awhile when it starts become a chore.

Ruby Red Emerald City

I even started giving the sets names. LOL 🙂 Fancy hand painted yarns have pretty names, why can’t my stitch markers? hehe 😀 The green set above has been dub… Emerald City. There are more stitch markers in my Flickr account.
