In an effort to learn how to make increases work, I made the Stitch n Bitch kerchief.

It came out looking pretty cute, but that may have more to do with the model than with my knitting skills.

Wow - I made something!

Considering the fact that I hit a total knitting wall, I felt a need to just FINISH something, something that wouldn't take any time at all.

So I made a dishcloth out of some cotton yarn that Mar sent me a little while back. It's not perfect but dammit it proved I still remember how to do the bloody knit stitch.


Now to do something better.

Dude, I think even *I* could make this poncho!

I am having so much trouble feeling motivated to keep knitting. I wish there was a local knitting group I could go to but that's the problem with living in a stupid-ass suburb; there's never anything good around.

DNA Scarf Pattern

Because I'm such a farkin' geek and since my favorite television show is unapologetically CSI, my knitting new year's resolution (besides, you know, *finishing* my current scarves for people) is to finally learn everything I need to know in order to successfully make this very funky DNA scarf.

Birthday scarf

This is the scarf that I was working on for my sister's birthday. It was December 25th, so unfortunately I didn't get it done in time but I'm still going on it. I hope to have it done soon.


I hope she doesn't think it's too wide.

This was my first time ever working with an actual wool blend instead of acrylic. I like it. But I still fucking hate hanks. Ugh.

I still don't have any new completed projects to share, but I finally got off my excessively lazy ass and took pictures of my projects I am currently working on.

I'm about halfway through Hayley's Gryffindor scarf. I'm SO looking forward to weaving in all those f-ing loose ends, NOT.

The following post contains coarse language.

Note to self: Never ever buy yarn in a fucking HANK again unless it's an actual yarn shop with one of those machine things that winds the fucking hank into a ball. Do you know how long it took me to wind my fucking hank into a ball?!

Grr, spit, hiss.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I just can't motivate myself to keep working on Hayley's Gryffindor scarf. I like the scarf, I *want* to finish it, but I think I'm just really freakin' tired of doing a plain knit stitch over and over and over ad nauseum.

I do need to get a move on though. She does have another scarf that she can wear for now (she's been wearing the fuzzy burgundy scarf, the very first thing I ever made) but I want to free up those needles and I hate having something not only unfinished but stagnant.

Yeesh. I don't know what happened. I just stopped halfway through Hayley's scarf. I need to get back on it. I'll try to take a picture tomorrow to show what I have thus far and maybe that will inspire me to finish it.
