yes I am crazy, so what?

I must be crazy. I joined the Sock Knitters Pentathlon 2008 on Ravelry. just what I needed, right? but looking back at the projects I finished in 2007, I made 6 pairs of socks and 1 pair of baby socks. so I can do this. just waiting for my order from Knit Picks to arrive.

besides I'm not the only one crazy. Ann is too :-P

I heart Ravelry

I really do! I had a bunch of yarn that was gifted to me. it was nice yarn, I loved it, but had nothing to do make with it. so I joined the Karma Swap group and its like Christmas! I offered my yarn and was able to claim someone else's unwanted yarn, aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh. yay for new pretty yarn!

for all you yarn whores. here's my latest yarn purchases/swaps.
bought this Malabrigo in Cosecha at ReBelle on Sunday to make thumbless mittens and a baby hat for a friend. I've finished the first mitten.

I receieved this yarn in a swap. Cherry Hill Yarns Sockittome in Serengeti

its been a long time...

The last month has been absolutely crazy. Gretchen wouldn't sleep during the day unless I was holding her, so no computer time and no knitting time. I started knitting Anouk for Gretchen using Knit Picks Crayon yarn in blues and green. I haven't gotten very far though. I finished my gloves and a calorimetry for myself. Oh and I finished my Anastasia socks finally.

on top of little to no knitting time, I got sick and thankfully the kids missed that. The husband lost his job, so he's been at home job searching. fun times here I tell ya. but hopefully things will start to look up soon!

I leave you with pictures of my calorimetry during our "big" snow and the itty bitty socks I made for Gretchen. I need to get pictures of my gloves and the socks. (and a cute Gretchen picture just cause she's cute)
