Socks Shawls Mitts: Here's my knitting!

So long time no see. How have you guys been? Sorry I haven't blogged in a while.....Yeah, i don't have much of an excuse other then the usual PROCRASTINATION. So yeah.

I've been knitting a lot! I've finished stuff, started stuff (mainly started stuff).
But I did finish something! My sisters socks! I had promised my sister (and mom and brother - we'll not go into that now) socks....last Christmas. As in 2011. And I finished it January 2013. Oh well, they are done, and that's what's important. They are also the socks that gave me a hatred of bobbles.

 Yeah, never going to knit bobbles again if i can help it.

I also started a shawl!!! Pretty no? I'm hoping I'll have enough yarn, I'm using some wool, and then some acrylic, but i only had one ball of the wool, and off the acrylic, three balls of unknown yardage. It's not that they are mystery balls (well they are I guess) it's that the labels do not carry that information. Why? is all i ask. WHY?!?

Anyway, it's coming along well, really simple Stockinette stitch increase rows, and then there is a pretty lace border that I should be coming to soon. It's more of a shawlette really, but it is lovely so far! I really like how the different yarns, even though somehow they are the same exact color, just the different materials make stripes.

I'm also working on some arm-warmers for my job. I should be casting on some more projects for that soon, and finish these up quickly.

I'm also making some mitts as a present for someone, who I will not name, because they may be reading this. Don't worry, I'll let you know as soon as she has them :)

That's all my knitting. In other news, I've started editing my novel from NaNoWriMo. It's going well so far, I'm really liking it. Also, I'm now on YouTube! It was a bit scary, and even now I'm cringing, but I knew my first video would suck, and that only doing more would make it better.
So if you want to check it out, just click here .

Well, i hope your weekend is wonderful, and i am off to knit and read and do more awesome stuff.


PS - I hope you guys had a wonderful National Do Nothing Day yesterday - i know i did

Happy New Year!!!

 Hello. Welcome to the year 2013, which is the year of the snake!!

So, i had a sleepover with my friend Madrone the other day.....and we crafted.

We ended up making a lot of stuff with playing cards.... \

(Note: I only have pictures of my stuff, because I forgot to take pictures of me, hers are awesome)
 I made a purse!! I love this purse so much! I am going to be carrying it everywhere!!

I made a clutch as well...... gold inside so you can see, and also, gold is the power color of 2013

I also made a wallet.....very fun, and they look so cool!

And a very nice little notebook.....Madrone found all these tutorials, man is she good!

We also exchanged christmas gifts, and look what she got me!!! I love this ring so much, I haven't taken it off :)

I also started knitting on my sisters socks again, and a class this month with the HPKCHC group, you can turn in WIP's, if they have more then 50 yards to go. I definitely  do.
