Ok I didn't mean it to be so long between posts, I have been working on the Irish Hiking scarf and finally got an email into the blogging group for it's knit along. Yay. I've found that knitting on the bus with a good podcast is the way to go. Mostly I've been listing to Cast-on and Potter cast I've added a few more podcasts tonight so I'll have some new stuff to listen too since I've used up my reserve of podcasts that I hadn't heard yet.

Right now I've got a nice hot pot of tea (Lots of sugar and milk). Tomorrow I'll be regerstering for my classes and panicing about a 8-10page paper due on Friday. I tried to get started on it today but I got nowhere with it, which make me sad I'd rather not spend my Thursday night franticly typing fluff.

This picture is from Thursday Night, I'm quite a bit further now.

Ok I think thats it for now, I really should be doing something productive... I doubt that will happen tonight... well folding laundry is productive...although really productive would be putting the laundry up....

OOO Lookie, Yarn!

Ok I should be in bed I've got classes and a midterm tomorrow, But posting past and current projects seemed like more fun. I don't know if Blogger has a cut feature to it to put pictures behind a link So these will be out in the open I suppose. I'm sorry about the poor quality of these I took them with my web cam, which does not have very good color resolution.
This is my current project, I've just got the itch to knit and this pattern has a Knit-along on Blogger. The color, since you can't tell from the photo is a dark green, I'm using Red Heart yarn from the stash.This will be a purse one day. The pattern is here: http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/brea/brea.html I'm using a yarn made from llama and Alpaca that I got for christmas. the color is a purplish pink with tiny bits of green in it, really pretty and kind of fuzzy . I need to the the bottom of it and the handles...one day...

And this is yet another project on hold, my first sweater(Jumper) A la Hogwarts, it's... well... a bit dull, all the same stitch. Made with Red Heart The MC is Black, With a silver and green stripe.

I'll post more later. I'm off to bed, Night

A Real Post

It's strange writing here when I have no idea who will be reading this, hopefully new knitting friends! I've found so many blogger journals that I like that I wanted to join in on and this seemed like a good place to have a knitting Journal, as well as one I can post to when I need to discuss things with people without worrying if they'll get wind of it on LJ. Sometimes You just want to post your honest opinion on something without it coming back to bite you. that's not too often though.

I do not have a digital camera at the moment so projects I do have pictures of are because someone else took a photo of them (normally I beg them to because I've been wanting to do this for a while)

This Journal is pretty bear right now but I'll try to make it pretty (read: fill it up soon)

Kind regards,
