I finally have a knitting accessory to brag about :)

From my aunt. I can't tell you how happy it makes me that someone else (other than Mom and Grandma) is being supportive of my knitting enough to buy me knitting related stuff (and not at garage sales).

My Gathered Pullover!

(the spots are on the camera lens)

I'm so happy with it :)

I finally finished my Gathered Pullover yesterday. I wore it today to school and it was great. Acrylic+nylon is so much better than wool temperature wise. Besides that, I love the way it looks. I was so happy with it I told the woman I work with that I made it. lol, I'm told this isn't really bragging, but I'm not sure if I believe it. Doesn't matter though, cause I'm even if it's bragging, after all that work you have to show it to someone. Anyways, I got some nice compliments, and the two women in the lab asked me about knitting in general, so it was nice

After a month, I'm finally at the inc part of the sleeves for my Gathered Pullover. Excitement. Only 5 more inc repeats and I get to do the shoulder shaping. This winter has been so mind there's no real need for it yet. I still want it done.

I got a coupon for the pattern store at Interweave Knits. 20% off - not bad. I only want one hat pattern, so a dollar off is real nice. Somehow $4.50 a hat seems too expensive, but $3.50 is fine.

Knitting post - yay!

My Harry Potter sock yarn arrived. It's so pretty, I love it. I've never loved yarn before until now. This also happens to be my most expensive skein of yarn bought to date - 19 dollars. I think it's worth it.

Harry colorway, obviously.


I made a little pouch for my Gameboy Advance SP. It's Michelangelo, my favorite Ninja Turtle.


My very own Soot Sprite just like in "My Neighbor Totoro" or "Spirited Away". The eyes are buttons with pupils I painted on with black nailpolish. I used this patter:

Yesterday I made my 1000 post on (my favorite knitting site). Very exciting.
