Stitch Along Wednesday

Good morn....err...evening.....and since it never works when I schedule this...I'll post it tonight...

Looks like Wednesday is the only day I post now....school started...things will settle down...and it is hella hot and humid here and computer is in a room with no a/c.....I spend as little time as possible in this room right now....but yarn is also in this room....I am drenched in sweat at the moment, as I'm looking for some self-striping to do a sock KAL.....I have two, but I want something autumnal...but just may take what I can find...and beat feet out of this room....

so gonna start that tonight....haven't really worked on anything else....aforementioned heat and school....

So how's your week been?  Can't wait to see what you're working on.....

As always, please link back...thanks!

Stitch Along Wednesday

Morning!  It is back to work week for me...the students don't come until next week...so we are all...

we have two days of workshops...the presenter isn't too bad...but really think it could have been done in one day....and we still have not had enough time to set up our classrooms...ugh!

So, I have worked on projects this week...but alas, do not have pictures....

I've mostly focused on the Sockhead hat...and the test knit, which got put in timeout, as I have an extra two stitches....

How about you this week?  What have you worked on?  Do you have a job where you have to attend never ending PD? (professional development)

as always, please link back..thanks!

Stitch Along Wednesday

Good morning my peeps!!!  It is my last week of summer vacation and I am booked this week!  Today I'll be taking a couple nephews shopping for their belated birthday gifts....should be fun...

I have three projects that have been front and center this week...first up, the Dork socks...almost done with sock 1..these socks took a backseat for awhile...

and then I have two hats...I joined a Sockhead KAL....(I always pronounce this sockHEED in my head)...if you want to join, it's here, until Sept 30...you do have to use an indie dyed yarn...that's the only requirement (or self dyed is good)

My yarn is Dizzy Color, one of the Buffy inspired ones from Patrol 1....

And..I'm doing a test knit...
This is a MadColor yarn from a Harry Potter club...

They don't look much different, as it's a lot of K2, P2 ribbing for both...I'm onto the pattern in the test knit, but have 2 more soul draining inches of ribbing on the Sockhead....

So two questions today...what's the best thing you've ever done on vacation?  And/or ..what was a soul draining project for you?

Oh and since there have not been reliable links up on Friday, I'm just going to start doing a Friday linkup...I don't always have an FO, but I'll post the link anyway....AND Ikneadtoknit also has linkups on Wednesdays and Fridays, so check her out...as always, please link back, so people can fins us...thanks!

Stash Saturday

Seriously...
we went for a trip to Northhampton last week....if you don't know, Northhampton is the home of WEBS...I was actually looking for a specific yarn..
The Fibre Company Savannah...for this....
and then I picked up some Madelinetosh to show the Hubs the colors....it was Magnolia Leaf...well he put in the basket..then we picked out Daffodil to make a sunflowery inspired shawl....
So gorgeous!!!!

Then I stopped in at Northhampton Wools, while he was in the used music store...
Mrs. Crosby came home with me....

On the way to meet Felicia Day, I stopped at an LYS and well they had some Hedgehogs Fibres..very difficult to get here...so Newsprint came to live with me...


I know I also have some in the mail on their way...and well fair season is coming.....and oh yeah, I picked up some more at the Art Show last week....I found the only booth with yarn in it...
She overdyed yellow onto grey..it's from a local farm, Flatland Alpacas.....

I think that is it....I have no will power....I have also started two new projects in the past two days...one for a KAL...Sockhead...and one for a test knit...now I am off...a former student is going to study in Germany and today is her goodbye party...toodles...

FO Friday

Good Morning!  Again the people I link to have not put up a link, so I'm going to throw one up...I think I'll just start doing a Friday link if people want one...need to come up with a picture....

So I have two finished objects, but only going to show one...as the crocheted boot cuffs, I need to fix....I'll explain when I blog them...

So here are Those Socks...just a plain vanilla pattern..I wanted the yarn to speak...
I'm going to love these!  They are too warm for now....

They are Zauberball...and yes they match..I made them match.....I'm not sure I could wear mismatched socks.....I absolutely love the gradient effect.....

I started these in February and finished them yesterday....But made many things in between...I am so not a monogamous knitter or crocheter, are you? 

Please link back, if you link up...thanks!

Stitch Along Wednesday

Good morning my lovelies!!!!!  Haven't blogged in a week!  I've done things and had things to say, but just haven't gotten to the computer....

I've pretty much been working on a second sock....here is a bad night picture...

In the picture, I was on the heel...now on the gussets....

Today I am off to the Boston area....going to a book signing by Felicia Day tonight...wohoo.....I also hope to pop into a nearby LYS to check it out....

On Monday I went to WEBS....yep...and left with stuff......had some people tell me I needed therapy...I told them yarn was my therapy....

How about you?  Is yarn your therapy????  I don't have to do anything with it...just squishing it helps!

As always, join up and please link back, so others can find us...thanks!
