This is where K@ waxes poetically about....

her total stupidity. Remember a post or two ago when I said I couldn't find the stitch markers that Meg made for me and I said they're around somewhere? Well, they were around somewhere... they are IN a WIP!!!! Hello? Knitter! Where did I think they were going to be? ROFL even though I felt as dumb as the rocks I collect I was very happy to "find" them again.

*gasp* Does that mean I'm knitting? Why yes it does! And on a WIP that's been going on for a few months as well! I'm trying to knock off some of my WIPs before the summer semester starts. See, I only have one class this spring and it's a math class so once the homework is done, it's done and there are no lurking reports to do, no presentations hanging over my head, and that my fine woolly friends means there will be knitting time for me this spring! WooT WooT

I'd love to show you the WIP with the markers but it's a birthday gift for my friend Jess who's birthday is in June. I will post a photo later though. Promise. So for now, I'm off to keep my coffee buzz and KNIT. Yes, I still can't believe it, KNIT, I am KNITTING and I am getting things finished and in between spaces in my house are getting cleaned. Life is good. Peace out woolies!

Wow, call the newspapers!!

It's two posts and both have knitting in them! I just finished what I dubbed the Grape Vine Poncho. My own design (don't ask, I B.S.'d my way through it) and it's with that Catherine the Great colorway yarn that I can't remember anything else about. I can't believe I'm modeling with no make up on either LOL, but tough! :P

And this is the first hexagon for the Basalt Tank from Knitting Nature. King Tut yarn. I have to make three more and a few half hex's. I would like to wear this tank to school this summer to show off the tattoos ya know? :)

I'm pretty happy with the first one but I seriously need to find more comfy stitch markers. I'm ashamed to say that I've missed placed the ones Meg made me using beads her bro. made. I'm such an ass. I'm sure they're around somewhere, it's just locating them in this sty.

Anyway, enjoy the duel post with knitting content. Who knows how long it will be before it happens again. :)


Hats and Tats

I went get my new tattoo and took this to Mr. Ed. I was excited to give it to him and wish I could have sooner so he could actually wear it but hey, it's Michigan and the day will come again that requires wool on the head.

And for his lovely wife I made the shrunken head. I love it and they're fun to accessorize.
And this is my newest tattoo... flash on, flash off LOL. I love it. I love it so much it almost brings tears to my eyes. Mr. Ed is just amazing. Just amazing.
The red tailed hawk is my spirit animal, totem animal, something I always need to be aware of in my life - clear sight. Anyway, I'm in love with the hawk and Mr. Ed is my hero.

Here's another photo

This is the photo The Yarn Harlot took of my tattoo.... (See that red mark on my neck? That's what happens when essential oils get directly on your skin... but the massage was worth it anyway!) So despite the goofiest damn look on my face this is how the tattoo looks now (and I drew the original myself *squeal*.)

Is it my imagination or do my boobs look extra big now that I've lost that 45 pounds? Just wondering LOL. Peace.

Finally, a post with knitting content!

The Yarn Harlot! She was beautiful, clever, and hilarious as always. Always a delight to get a chance to see and if you weren't there then, well, you seriously missed out! This is a terrible photo (Stephanie doesn't look horrible, my photo was) but you'll have to take into consideration that I was at the very back of the room and flashes only go so far.

But, this is a better one! Meg (Blogless No More), Stephanie, and I with my knitting tattoo! Maybe one of these years I can actually stand next to Stephanie in a photo lol.
I made some mad progress on my "school sock". Count down 4 red sections and that's what I got done while waiting. My nail polish matched too, pretty groovy eh? I call this my school sock because usually I only knit on it between classes.
I decided instead of doing regular ribbing I'd do a basket weave look and it's turning out pretty good. I wonder if it'll take me another two semesters to get the second one done. Lets hope not! I have at least 8 or 9 Socks that Rock kits to do an another one coming in a month or so. Stash! Gotta love it.
I do want to apologize for the lack of posting these last few months. School is kicking my hiney and my kids seem to decide that instead of all four of them getting sick at once they'd play tag. I've had one sick for one week for the last four weeks. Now, on top of all that I have a HUGE paper in my ecology class due Tuesday, a presentation for Monday in Glacial Geology, and a HUGE paper due in my social foundations class by the 22nd. Plus take home questions for my last test in ecology Thursday, four field trip write ups for geology, a poster presentation in biogeography, and two finals. Hello? Can someone shot me now? Holy sheep sh*t I'm feeling a bit crazy, overwhelmed, and panicky. Thankfully there's knitting to relax me (procrastinate with). Have a great weekend and if I don't emerge in 10 days come peel my face out of my text book K? :)
