Ok, so I finally have my digital camera uploaded into the new computer, so get ready for some pictures, backdated, but pictures non-the-less!!

First, here is the Branching out Scarf I finished a while ago:

here is another shot, it's a little dark but you can see the lace detail really good:

here are the pedicure socks I made for my mom - which were supposed to be a Christmas present but I just couldn't hold off that long to give them to her (click on the link under 2006 Finished Projects for a different picture):

this is a ribbed keyhole scarf I made, I also made my own pattern up as I went along and I think it came out pretty good for my first time 'free-knitting'

Those are all my FO's, or at least all the ones I could find and carry downstairs in one trip. If I find anymore I'll post them later.

Here is the current [ok, one of the current] WIP I'm working on. The Crusoe socks from Knitty.

this is the front part, I'm not doing the full leg, I am sort of going to try and make it into an ankle sock

this is the back heel flap, I just started and I'm about 6 rows into it.

Alright, I think I'm all caught up!! It's so nice to have my camera finally. I got it for Christmas last year and am just finally getting to put it into a computer, it's so nice. Now I will be able to post reguarly with pictures! Who doesn't love pictures of knitting to look at?

Still no news about my SP, maybe I'll just have to sit out of this round :(

That's all the updates I have, hope everyone has a lovely week and ...

Happy Knitting!

No school today, it's election day!

My camera is still not hooked up, but I got a great idea to scan in my besotted scarf from someone. I'm not sure how well other things will scan, but I will try a little later when my homework and what not is done, but for now here is my bessotted scarf:

I like how the verigated yarn is making it look kind of rainbow-ish. I also like how because of the cables the colors are not going in stripes like they probably would if I weren't using cables, but I am working on this for the Fall Cable KAL 2006

That's all I'm posting for now I have to go do Spanish Homework, Art homework, and study for a huge French test I have tomorrow. I'll try and post more later today.

Happy Knitting!

Well, I was without a computer for about a week. It crashed, completely, and we had to order a new one. Which makes me happy. Wanna know why?! Because as soon as my mom checks something out with an uncle of mine, I can install my digital camera software and grace my blog with pictures


None today though, but I do have some knitting news:

1) Socktoberfest 2006 ended on Tuesday, I didn't get as much as I would have liked to get done what with homework and my job but I did finish up the pedicure socks for my mom and start another pair for myself.

2) My projects for the Fall 2006 Cable KAL are going smoothy. The besotted scarf from Hello yarn is adorable, I am loving the way it's coming out with the ribbon yarn I chose to help me de-stash a little bit. The Central Park hoodie hasn't had much progress but it looks nice!

3) SP 9 pals were given out, but my named was overlooked somehow. I have contacted one of the head hanchos about it and the're working on it. But, I will say I am feeling a little left out, every blog I browse it seems that someone has gotten a fantastic package from their SP. I suppose good things come to those who wait though. Too bad I am extremely impatient huh?

4) I am looking into convincing my mom to let me open up my own Etsy shop. I don't think anything too extravagent would go in it. Nothing like cabled sweaters, but some little knitted items, probably some sewn too. I have to really figure out how the whole thing works first though.

Other than those four main things there is not much else as far as knitting news goes. I have barely any time to knit with school. This year is brutal with homework. I stayed home today so I got a bit done, and I have next Tuesday off of school so I should get more done then too.

That's all my updates, hope everything is well with everyone, and ...

Happy Knitting!
