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:

Ugh, I can't believe I had to frog almost the whole body of my Gathered Pullover. I was just starting the army holes... I did the split to front and back... finally got to try it on.... way too big. Way way too big. 2.5 skeins of yarn unraveled, the whole damn cable and everything. 5 days of non-stop knitting. I'm just about ready to shoot someone.


I've cast on again, in a smaller size, but my heart isn't in to it. It's just frustration that's got me knitting right now.
