Irregular posts, if any at all...sometimes I knit, sometimes I don't. I am trying to learn how to spin, but I don't have much time.

why can't I sleep

Last night i was up with the stomach bug that is going on around here. My sleep schedule is way off now. On a positive note i finished knitting the band on my very own OSW! Unfortunately, the band is inelastic and i am now unable to put the damn thing on. If anyone ever reads this, how do I fix this problem? I have managed to unravel the bound off edges on the short sleeves and have begun making them longer. I will post pics tomorrow after the DB and i go geocacheing.

Here we go!

I just emailed the Yarn Harlot with my submisson for the Knitters Olympics. I figure what better time to finally start a knitting blog. I haven't been knitting for very long and in this short period of time I have very little time to knit. I have managed to knit a few scarves a goofy baby hat and a felted purse or two (they came out terribly!). The main reason I have never started a knitting blog is due to the fact that I didn't have the means to post pictures and what is a blog without lots of yarn porn. Now that I have a digital camera I can post everything I knit.

As for the Olympics, I will be making a pair of HUGE socks for my DB. His big 'ol man feet are going to drive me crazy in 16 days. I am going for some simple starter stockinette socks in an ugly woolease color that he picked out. I'm thinking contrasting toes and heels. Socks kind of scare me. I am not afraid of knitting in the round, just of making something that is so form fitting and must be perfect.
