I could’ve

May 30, 2007

This past weekend there were many projects I could have worked on. Many many projects. These are the only ones that need to be done now. (Except I’m not event thinking about the one for my mom.)

K's Graduation Sock

I could have worked on friend K’s graduation socks consedering her graduated 3 weeks ago.

Ballband dishclothes

Or I could have worked on the “Welcome to your new House” gift for some griend moving into their new house next week.

Wrap Jacket

But instead I decided to fix the collar on my Wrap Jacket. The collar knitted up way too wide. It was nearly large enough for a hood. I ripped it out and started over with few stitches and worked half the increase. I think it turned out much better. Picture will come soon.

Up next: Mom’s scarf. After 4 starts I think I’ve found a pattern for the yarn she picked out.


Harry Potter bookmark

May 24, 2007

Harry Potter bookmarkThe bookmark was a birthday present for a friend. She and I have made several trips to the book store to buy the latest Harry Potter. I’m sure we will do the same with the final book. I don’t even want to imagine what will happen in the final book. It has been so long since I read 1-4 that I’ve been thinking about rereading all 6 books before #7 comes out. I started the first book last night. We shall see if I can finish them before I pick up the 7th book.

The bookmark: I started it last fall and have been making slow progress on it since my friend’s b’day isn’t until May. My first round of stripes came out kind of wonky and the transition between the two colors wasn’t very smooth. Although I would love to have my own Harry Potter bookark I don’t think I’ll be making one soon. It took a lot of patience on my part to work with that small tube on tiny needles with some of the thinnest and slipperiest thread/yarn. So as soon as I forget about all the issues I had with the bookmark I’ll make myself one.

Wrap Jacket: In timeout. It has been very very bad.
New Project: Law school Graduation sock for a friend
