I'm on a Streak

OK, so I'm on a spinning streak right now...
Two more skeins of llama are now spun up. I'm getting about 10-12 wraps per inch on this which would make it a worsted weight yarn by the looks of it. I'm amazed at how soft it has been turning out. I also went ahead and washed the two skeins to set the twist and get rid of the rest of the grease in the fiber.

Dunked and rinsed. I checked the skeins this morning and they are almost completely dry.

Yeah, I still knit too. I worked some more on my grandma's sock. I should be done with the pair by this weekend I think. I'm hoping I can be done by tomorrow since she's coming over to the house for dinner and it would be nice to give them to her then.

I'm almost to the heel now. Give me a nice hour long lunch and I'll have a heel turned and the gusset done, at least that's the plan.

Yeah, I'm putting off those last two front panels on the slog as long as I can...

More Spinning

I did some more spinning last night after having dinner with DBF who had a rare weekday off and sucking royally at poker. I decided to spin some more llama since I think I want to get done with that fiber and get it out of the back porch area. The roving was a little dirty, so it sheds sticks and grime everywhere when I spin it, hence why I've been spinning outside. I got done with another bobbin at least.
Now that I look at this picture, I probably should have spun up a little more on that bobbin's right side, but oh well, I'll just try to make it about the same on the second bobbin.
This llama fiber is quite fuzzy as you can tell from this shot. I also knit some more on the sock and finished the ribbing.

I'll be working on these a lot today and tonight so that I can get them wrapped up. I need to get started on my dad's father's day socks really soon so that I can get those finished and mailed out to him.

Finally, I'll leave you with a short video of a llama crying. Turn up the volume and you'll hear his little whine at the end of the video.

More Fiber In Your Diet

This weekend was about fiber and taking it easy. On Friday, I left work early to go pick up my grandmother from the airport since she was coming up here for a visit. After dropping her off, DBF and I tried to go see Pirates, but so did everyone else in town, so we just took it easy instead that night. Saturday, DBF surprised me and proved how good of a boyfriend he is! I went over to his house and he tells me to look in the paper because he saw something called Llama Daze. I looked, and it was a small llama and alpaca fiber festival just a few miles away. He asked if I wanted to go and of course I said yes. We went to see llamas. Medium llamas.
Baby llamas!
Adult llamas that looked interested in spitting on us...Heck, we even got to pet llamas!

What's that bag I'm holding? Yeah, I bought a huge bag of llama fiber from a llama named Razzleberry. Razzleberry won third best fiber in the state this past year, so I was happy.

After the fiber-filled lunch hour, we went to the horse park to look around and saw something other than horses.

These were the first goslings that DBF and I had seen all year. They were cute. The parents didn't seem to like that we were sneaking closer to them though. After the horse park, we went to see Pirates and actually got in that time. It was OK, but I liked the first two better.

Sunday we went to church, had lunch, then went to see Grindhouse at the dollar movie. Yeah, glad it was just a dollar. It was interesting how it was old-ish looking, but the movies kinda sucked, especially Deathproof. I like Tarantino movies too, but compared to Kill Bill, it just wasn't doing it. Yesterday we played disc golf and celebrated DBF's sister's birthday, so of course we ate too much.

I finished a sock this weekend too.

One more to go and then I can give these to my grandma. She liked the colors in it. I also did some spinning. I spun up three skeins of the blue wool my mom and dad gave me for Christmas and I just loved it. It really has a nice feel. It's the blended fiber from Copper Moose.
I was trying to get a worsted weight out of it, but after plying, the yarn really poofed out and I managed to get a bulky-ish weight out of it. I also did some spinning on the llama fiber and managed to complete two skeins of that.

Llama is a little scratchy, but this turned out fairly soft. I'll have to see how much I'm able to get out of the bag before I try to figure out what to make out of it. We'll see.

Hope everyone had a good long weekend.

A Long Weekend Ahead

I love the promise of long weekends. I really like the fact that come Monday, I won't have to drag myself out of bed, but rather can sleep in as long as possible and enjoy the time away from this place. A lot happened yesterday at work and I was reassigned to another department temporarily because they are so far behind and I'm one of the few here who knows how to do their work plus my own. Anyways, at least I'll be busy.

I get a half day today too because my grandma is flying in from Florida for a visit. I did not get her pair of socks done. I only got half of the first sock done, but she'll be up here a month and I'm sure I can finish a pair of socks. I'll be only working on those knitting-wise until they're done. Then it'll be back to the slog.

Speaking of the slog, I finished the second sleeve.

Two sleeves and the back panel are done. Just two front panels and I'll be able to sew this sucker up, get my money, and never speak of it again...

I forgot to mention that I bought a skein of sock yarn while at ReBelle on Tuesday. It's Lorna's shepherd sock in the Black Purl colorway.

Mostly I picked it up in honor of the new Pirates movie coming out this weekend. I am fascinated with the subtle color shift in this yarn though.

This yarn is just hanging out on my desk right now so that whenever I get stressed, I can pet it and feel better :oP

And here's Grandma's half a sock.

I'll probably be blogger-less on Monday since I'll be home, but I'll be back on Tuesday for sure. Have a good long weekend to those who get it!

Farce of the Penguins

So last night after work, I met up with my friend Erica. She was really bummed because she got fired yesterday and she was concerned about finances (aren't we all!) and being able to pay her bills. Lucky for her she has a roommate that can help out with that. So while there we ate dinner and watched a movie called Farce of the Penguins. It's a spoof off March of the Penguins, only in this movie you can hear what the Penguins are really saying (I'm freezing my nuts off! is one thought they had). The movie was narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and I have to admit that it was so corny that it was funny. Fart jokes just never get old when you're in the company of depressed friends :oP

So while I was watching that, I knit on the second sleeve of the slog and I managed to finish it. Now I'm just down to the two front panels. I'm going to take a little break from it though so that I can work on a pair of socks for my grandmother. She comes in tomorrow and I haven't even made a dent in the first one, so I better get hopping on the socks. Plus after that I need to work on the pair for my dad for father's day. Everyone gets socks this year!

I'll have pictures tomorrow. I was too lazy last night and Spooky was demanding attention from me. Spooky seems to be enjoying my grandparents house. I think they are enjoying her too. I walked in the door last night and Grandma had to tell me all about what Spooky had been doing all day. It really is cute :oP They should have gotten themselves a bunny years ago!

Anger Out, Fiber In

I'm trying not to be one of those people who is just so angry about work that they let it stem over into other things. It gets hard when you have crazy shit happening all around you and you feel like you're utterly helpless in it, but I still try. One of the ways I manage my job anger is to go home and spin. I probably have karmically evil infused yarn because I channel my anger into the fiber. It's meditative to me to spin and just let the anger go. I feel like my anger is like the clump of raw fiber, just messed up and not aligned, but when I focus on it, I can turn it into something beautiful.

I've started to spin a lot more in the past few days. As a matter of fact, it's something I think about while at work. I go home and I want to immediately take out my wheel and get rid of the day's crap by spinning this fiber. So far, it's keeping me fairly sane (comment away on that one...).

This fiber has been wonderful to spin up so far. It's from Copper Moose, but I forget what colorway. Mom and Dad got that for me for Christmas and the five pound ball 'o fiber has been sitting in the bag since then. I neglected spinning for a while, and even though I have a giant slog, I still need to spin.

I know it's just a bobbin of singles, but it means a lot to me right now. I'm looking forward to the next bobbin and then to plying them. This yarn is going to turn into a sweater. I had planned on it being a sweater from day one, but the more I work with it, the more I know that it is destined to be what I orginally had planned for it.

I went to SnB last night too at Janes and we ate cheese, salmon dip, olives, and drank some good chardonay. It was a fun gathering as usual and for a few hours, I could forget about having to be here this morning. I'm now 3/4 done with the slog's sleeves.

Horrid picture, I know, but you get the general idea. I should be done with this sleeve tomorrow. After the sleeves are done, I just have the two front panels to do and then the collar once it's all sewn up. Once I get done with the sleeve, I really need to work on the socks for my grandmother. She comes in on Friday and I haven't even finished one yet. At least socks are fast.

Some Days

Some days you just don't want to deal with crap at work. Today is one of those days. Luckilly, I have a SnB meeting at lunch, so I'll be able to get rid of a lot of frustration there if need be. Anyways, on to knitting content.
I worked some on the sleeve while playing poker last night. This is the second sleeve and it's coming out nicely, just like the first one. Here's an awful picture because this thing will not photograph well due to the blackness of it. I'll get out the SLR when the thing is done and get some good pictures on film assuming my camera will fire up and not eat another two batteries.
DBF and I ran in a 5k this weekend too. Did I mention that we won trophies too? He got first in his age group and I got third in my age group! Here we are, post-race.
There ya go. My first running trophy... We all gotta start somewhere I suppose :oPNow, if I could just get rid of those two pounds I managed to put on last week, life will be good ;oP

I'll have pictures of knitting tomorrow. I had to move out of the house this weekend, so I didn't get a chance to download pictures off of my camera. I did however have time to go to the movies this weekend with DBF. We saw Spiderman 3 (at times too corny) and Bridge to Terabithia.
DBF and I knew nothing about this movie. We figured it was going to be a fantasy-type flick, feel good movie. Nope. We were both balling our eyes out at the end of this movie. We cried after the movie. We cried on the way home, while cleaning the fridge, and while petting Spooky. Good lord...

Why did Leslie go there alone? She should have waited for Jess! He should have invited her! That teacher shouldn't have invited him to the museum! WTF?

OMG, I still want to cry about that this morning...

AnnaSophia is the best kid actress I have seen in a long time. DBF and I need to watch Because of Winn Dixie and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory now just to see her so we know she's alive...

The Joy of Work

Happy, happy. Joy, joy. I'm at work this morning, but I really thought about calling in after yesterday. Recently, it's just been one thing after another it seems.

Anyways, I won't get into it right now. It's too long and I don't feel like typing that much :oP On the bright side, I did finish the first sleeve on the slog last night. I'm going to start the first front panel this weekend and hopefully I'll get a good chunk done. I'm not allowing myself to start anything else until I get done with this slog. Believe me, I have lace yarn and lace patterns just sitting there, taunting me, so I really need to get the slog done.

I'm running in a 5k tomorrow. The first 5k I ran in a month ago, I was so excited about running in it. This one, not so much. I'm not looking forward to it after my past two runs feeling like crap. Hopefully I can run the whole thing, but I'm not going to kill myself over it if I need to walk this time. There will be other 5ks that I can run the whole way on :oP

So I just need to get through today at work and then I can have two whole days where I can forget about it. Knitting and spinning really helps when stuff like this happens. I even spun up a bobbin of yarn last night. I'll probably go back to my old Wednesdays are for spinning routine as of next week so that I can crank out some yarn. I'm spinning up the wool that mom and dad got me for Christmas. It's spinning up so pretty and very even, so I'm thrilled with it right now. It's going to be a worsted weight, but if I wanted to, this yarn could be spun up much thinner and probably go down to a sock yarn weight. However, I have dreams for this yarn to be a sweater from Inspired Cable Knits, so worsted weight it is! :oP

And I need to not buy any roving. I was looking at roving yesterday online and I saw some I really wanted. I think the Yarn Harlot's sock yarn has me thinking of bright colors...

Cable of Sanity

That is what I am calling the very simple rope cable on the slog's first sleeve. It really is keeping me sane right now. After the 56 inch stockinette slog, I decided that I really needed to do something that I could finish in a couple of days, so I started the sleeve. I'm at 14 inches now, so I'm over half way done with it. Here's a picture of the sleeve:
Having trouble seeing the cable? Drawing in photoshop can be good for something...

Just take my word for it...

After dropping off the last of the non-essentials over at my grandparents, I opened the shiny cardboard box that arrived from knitpicks. Inside of it was this:

Shimmer lace yarn in tourquois splendor. I immediately wanted to cast on for the dragon shawl, but I knew better than that. I must finish the slog first before starting anything new aside from socks. But that yarn just begs to be knit. I'm thinking about knitting the Adamas shawl from knitpicks out of this and using the Helen's laces that I ordered for the dragon whenever that yarn comes in. I was petting this yarn for most of the night.

The Bunny and the Slog...and a SnB

So yesterday at noon, I went over to meet Kim for SnB. It seems like it had been forever since I saw her. She does look much happier now that her Spring classes are over. But while we were there, we were getting a new chick hooked on crochet.

By the time the meeting was over, she had her first row of single crochet down. She was pretty even tensioned and everything! Now we just need to take her to ReBelle and see what happens :oP

While at SnB, I enlisted Alexandra's help to photograph the almost finished back of the slog.

Told you it was big...

Anyways, after I went running with Rebecca and stopped by my grandparents to do a little unpacking (figured I would get as much unpacked before I bring over the final load of clothing and crap sometime this week), I came home and spent the rest of the evening like this:

Knitting and giving the bunny some foot lovin'. I finished the back of the slog and laid it out on the floor for Spooky to inspect. She really didn't know what to think of the blanket-like thing.
She shunned it and went back to the carpet. However, my other plan didn't work out so well. See, my feet were tired from running and rubbing the bunny that I hid them under the slog. Turns out bunnies have a good sense of where something is hiding...

So I put Spooky up and went to bed. Terribly exciting evening, I know :oP I cast on for the first sleeve last night because I needed something I could finish quickly so that I don't go insane. The back of the slog nearly made me go insane, so much so that I bought lace yarn. I can't have that happening again right now (I'm broke), so sleeve it is!

Slog en Macro

I was having difficulty getting the slog to cooperate for photography purposes, so today I present Slog en Macro in order to illustrate why I am so giddy this morning despite having cleaned all last night and part of this morning since the home owners are coming back today to drop off some stuff.
Is that what I think it is? Could it be???
Yes! It is! An armhole decrease! I am 6 more inches away from being done with 1/3 of the slog (a third for the back, one for the two front pieces, and one for the sleeves)! 45 inches are done! 45 inches are done! I am entirely too happy to be saying this. Another reason I am happy this morning?
A new sock is on the needles. The yarn is some sort of Opal that I traded some needles for with Jane from SnB. These socks will be going to my grandmother who is coming up here in a few more days.

If they weren't going to her, they'd be going to me, kinda like the socks I made for my mom. I really need to hop over to Stone's Throw sometime and pick up another ball of that Sockotta cotton blend.

I sucked at poker last night, so no stories to tell about that. I'm almost done with the move now too, so there will be much sighing of relief this weekend when the last of my stuff gets moved out of that house. While I enjoyed the privacy, I had too much crap break and annoyances from the homeowners, so I'll be glad to head out.

Tomorrow, there will be better pictures of the slog in its full view. I will get Kim to help me photograph it today at SnB.

Moving, Mother's Day, and Survivor

I packed up some more stuff this weekend for the move. The owners of the house are back this weekend, but as I found out last night, are also coming in on Tuesday to drop off some stuff and leave one of their cars. Blah. I'll be very glad to get out of this house. I'll miss the privacy for sure, but I'll be glad to be out of there. Hopefully nothing else major breaks or happens this week.

The socks I was making on here were for my mom. She got them and said that she liked the material a lot and that they fit her well. I'm glad that they fit since I am an awful judge of shoe size since I'm sitting over here with size 12 feet. Yep, just call me big foot.

Saturday, DBF and I went out to eat with my grandparents and great grandparents for Mother's Day. It was a nice lunch and it stuffed us all, even though we all still managed to eat some dessert. Sunday, DBF and I went out to dinner with his mom and some of his family and we gorged ourselves at a buffet. I managed to make myself fairly miserable, but it was relieved courtesy for cheesecake that must have had egg in it. At least it freed up some space :oP I'm still amazed at how quickly it hits me now that I'm off all the stomach meds.

Last night was the Survivor season finale. I won't say who won in case some people reading this taped it or haven't heard yet. All I will say is that the person I wanted to win finished fourth. Oh well.

I also knit on the slog. It's time to shape the armholes on it. Depending on how much cleaning I get done after work or if I go running after work, I'll work on the armholes at poker. If I don't get stuff done before poker, then I'll just stay home and clean and hit poker tomorrow night.

Anyways, pictures of the slog tomorrow. It really is huge now.

A Growing Slog

Ok, I worked on the slog yesterday while playing poker and it's now 31 inches long. 10 more inches and I can start doing armhole decreases. The good news is that it's half way done now! Woot! Well, at least the back is half way done. I'm more excited about the front panels and the sleeves since they will have cables in them and that will keep me occupied.

I ordered some knitpicks lace yarn (shimmer- tourquois splendor) yesterday morning and made a special order of Helen's Laces too, so I'll compare which lace will make me happiest with this shawl. Worse-case scenario, I'll have extra yarn and will be forced to do more lace knitting :oP I'll have enough lace to knit to keep me busy for the next 3 years.

My stomach finally calmed down after the Indian food experiment on Wednesday. I couldn't believe how long my stomach churned because of that. I don't think there was anything in there that I was allergic too, I just think it was the spices and the way it lingered that got me. Anyways, all is better in the stomach world.

Thursday, May 10, 2007


Now that the socks have been mailed out, I have no excuses not to work on the slog. I worked on it last night and it grew about four inches and is now 29 inches long. only 11 more inches to go before I can start working on the armhole decreases. I'm looking forward to those, as silly as it may sound, just because it will be something different than miles of stockinette. Here's the slog in progress:

To appease my mind and let it know that more exciting knitting will be coming, I also ordered the Here Be Dragons shawl by Aurora-Alpacas. It looks like this for those who have not seen it:

I ordered the pattern off of They people at Aurora's really do respond quickly. I had the pattern within an hour of ordering. Now I'm on the quest to find the perfect yarn for this shawl. I really want to use Helen's Laces, but they are so expensive (50 bucks a skein, and of course I need 2 skeins for this sucker). I'm going to check Magpie yarns sometime this week and see what they have in lace yarns. If they don't have anything I like, then I may have to place a knitpicks order. The alpaca cloud yarn has a lovely greenish blue that I like.

And since I have no more knitting content to show you, I leave you with a video of Spooky flopping on the floor. She did this while I was knitting on the slog. I think she understands how I feel!

Packed Up and Heading Out

I went running after work yesterday and had a bit of a scare. I was heading into mile 2 when my Ipod came unhooked from inside of my shorts and smacked hard on the ground. The little wheel thingy was jammed in it and the volume was getting louder and louder because of this. I was about to get really upset since Ipods are not cheap and I didn't really want to replace mine right this minute. I grabbed the screaming Ipod and headed back to the car to see what I could do with it. I jammed the wheel as hard as I could on the other side and it popped back in place. Moral of the story: Don't run with an Ipod clipped to your pocket. Go get one of those armband things. Also, it may be time for me to upgrade past my mini and get one of those new nanos. Perhaps after I'm out of credit card debt and after I buy a new digital SLR.

After running and showering, I went to SnB at Jane's. I made some hummus and brought rice crackers. She provided an Irish blue cheese, and then cookies arrived with Kaye. We had a good combination of food and some good tea that Jane made as well. I knit and I knit on the socks and...
I finished them. They are packed and about to go in the mail as soon as the post office opens up. Here's a close up of the stripes:
And of course, as with all socks, they must be Spooky approved. I wasn't able to wear these since they are for a smaller foot than my own, but Spooky still came and checked them out.

They are bunny approved, and we all know that this is important. She is the ultimate judge of socks, just ask her.

Tonight I'm meeting Erica for coffee and I'll be doing some knitting while I wait for her to get off work. I'm putting down the socks for a little while even though I need to make a pair for my grandmother who is coming for a visit since she asked specifically for a pair to wear when her feet get cold at night. Tonight I will knit on the stockinette slog which still sits at 25 inches. I'm hoping by the end of the night that it will be longer than 30 inches. I am seeing the light that is armhole decreases just around the corner.

Blood Suckers

So, yesterday I had to go get a bunch of blood drawn to do the spectrum of tick tests that doctors do. I might as well have gone in there and donated a pint of blood to them. That's what it looked like they were taking anyways. In a week or so, I should know if I have any ticky problems, but hopefully it'll be all clear. Damn biting ticks...

This weekend DBF and I played in a Magic tournament. Friday night in a hot, non-AC game store, I sucked, but DBF did well. He finished 6th, but if he had won his last match (Curse Victor!) he would have finished in first place. It's amazing how much one loss will get you in those last rounds.

Saturday, we met Emily and her husband over at IHOP. It was so nice to see Emily again! She finished her doctorate here and then moved to Connecticut to go do post-doc work at Yale. I don't blame her for taking it, but Kim and I really missed her! I have her two skeins of highland wool for those cold New England winters and she gave me two skeins of Koigu in this lovely blue color. Sadly, I have no pictures of this yarn since it was packed up and moved this weekend. when I make something out of it, you'll get to see it.

Sunday was about the Amazing Race season finale. My team won, but I wish they hadn't complained so much on the race. While all of this was going on this weekend, I knit and knit on the socks. I need to get them in the mail by tomorrow if they are to get to their intended destination on time. Here they are:

I'm definitely going to have to get some more of this yarn for myself. I'm loving the feel of the cotton.

Magic Days

OK, so today is a Magic day. The new set, Future Sight, is out. We got our cards yesterday and DBF has already opened his fat pack. I'll be ripping into mine tonight when we get together, so I'll have a report for you all on Monday. If you tried to email me yesterday about the stash sale and you did not hear back from me, please leave a comment. It seems that some emails may not be coming through for some reason. I still have some stuff left, but a good majority is now spoken for.

Future Sight is about taking a look into the future apparently. The time-shifted cards are actually shifted from future sets and include new mechanics and hints as to where Magic might be heading. I haven't seen that many cards from the set yet, but if it's like the other two Time Spiral sets, this one should be decent as well.

Knitting-wise, I'm working on the socks and the Big Black Thing (hey, if the Harlot can have the Big Pink Thing, I can have a BBT). The socks are almost to the heel and the BBT is 25 inches now. I'll be glad to have BBT done soon so that I can move on to other projects or just knit socks until I'm tired of socks.

Anyways, Derby party tomorrow, Magic cards, some knitting, I'll have the weekend report on Monday.

ALL SOLD!!1 skein Bernat Baby Coordinates in Aqua/Pink colorway. Taken Off, a friend of mine just called and there will be a new baby coming...

OK, now for some logistics. I take paypal and I'll take a money order or check. If you pay with paypal, your yarn will be sent out the next day. All the prices include shipping since I'm too lazy to figure out shipping costs. I don't care that I'm selling this for pretty cheap. I have to be ready to move at the drop of a hat if one of the apartments I'm on a waitlist for opens up. This was the yarn that I could part with. I saved a bunch for myself, so this is only the stuff I could bear to let go. Again, email me at knittingmagicgirl @ and I'll post up here when stuff sells too.

Oh, and I knit on the neverending sweater. It's now 24 inches long. Knit on...
