year end wrap-up

so my camera wasn't charged last night for me to take pictures and post - i forgot to plug in the dock ... woops :-]

but here is what i have:

as far as knitting goes I haven't done too much on anything I haven't really had the time but I did finish one of my Crusoe Socks! [well almost]

the only thing I have left to do is cast off the toe. It gives me the option of knitting the stiches on needles one and two and then doing the kitchener stitch of the first and second needles together, or of pulling the yarn through all stitches. This is the first sock I've ever made so I'm not sure which is best. Any suggestions??

on the non knitting front I made some curtains for my room yesterday!

First of all my room is all black and white pictures of New York, and Audrey Hepburn like this:

This is only the wall that my bed is on but you get the idea of it. Now before I made the curtains that I did, I had these maroonish deep red curtains up that well, did just not go. Here is what I made:

Cute aren't they? They're black with white polka dots, which I think goes very well with my room.

I also had a martini glass on my dresser that was just overflowwing with chapsticks and perfume samples so I did something that isn't very crafty but it used craft supplies so I suppose you could count it - I filled the martini glass with 'pearl' beads. It looks adorable on my dresser with all my perfumes set up. I would post a picture but blogger isn't allowing me to add anymore, I'm not sure why though.

Well, my goals as far as craftyness goes are that I would like to finish everything I started this year, if not everything than at least half. I would also like to try dying some yarn of my own. Other than that I'm not really sure.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and as always ...

Happy Knitting!

I am a slacker,

and a large one at that!

I have two days left of my school vacation and last night was the first time I knit - and even then I only did maybe 4 rows of my socks.

It is horrible.

Granted, I got myself a new digitalized sewing machine for Christmas so I have been sort of fooling around with that a bit, I had a friend sleep over for about three nights in a row, and basically I have just simply been enjoying the fact that I do not have to wake up before it is light outside to go somewhere. As well as the fact that I get to watch all those craft shows on HGTV and DIY Network that I miss while I'm in school.

Right now my camera is charging, but later on tonight I will post some pictures [and a list of things I need to finish next year!]

Until then, happy knitting!

Christmas Traffic

I know I havent posted in a while, and sadly it looks like I wont be posting again anytime soon. Every year the two weeks before Winter Break are crammed with last minute projects, tests for the half-quarter mark, loads of homework, etc. I have been extremely busy with school - so much so that I've called out of work a couple of times to just try and catch up and relax. I honestly do not think I've gone to bed before 11:30 in the past week and a half, and I have had no time at all to knit, I go once a week to my library knitting group but we always do more talking than knitting, or I end up bringing homework.

So until everything with school calms down and when I have a spare minute I will post, but incase I don't talk to everyone before the holidays come around: Happy Holidays, enjoy time with the family, etc.

and don't forget...

Happy Knitting! [if you have the time :-D ]
