1. Holy Gusset Holes, Batman!
This is what happens when I'm bitten by the toe-up sock curse and begin to expound upon how wonderful it is not having to do any work at the end. Knitting socks should not be this easy, and the universe has shown me that by giving me
2. I Really Am A Winner!
I received my
FYI, I'm not photographer. You can see (not very well) from the picture that Cara is. Look at the beauty of the card! The colors and the clarity of all the yarn and the socks just show Cara's genius. I'm not worthy!
Over Easter weekend, I was a busy bee. I upgraded my blogging software and sewed an entire purse - the Velma purse by Amy Butler. I think I even made my Easter Bunny Ipod Cozy that weekend. I already put the Easter Bunny Ipod Cozy up, but the purse, I haven't blogged about. And there's a reason for that. I'm not sure I love it. I like it, don't get me wrong, but I thought I would L-O-V-E this purse. I think it's because the pattern on the fabric isn't centered.
What do you think? Is it cute? Or should I make another one? I think I can get another yard of the fabric (which I might do anyway, just to make something else), or should I just leave it. The purse is cute, I give it that, but it isn't fantastic, like I wanted it to be? Am I being too judgemental? I'm planning on bringing it to
4. Busy Bee
I knew that once I was no longer based in a training center for my company, I would be doing some travel. Travel is not bad, and I figured it would be 3, maybe 4, days max, 2 weeks out of the month. However, looking through April, into May, and onto June, I am going to be busy! I am scheduled to be on the road each and every week through the first week of June. Last week, I spent some time in Minneapolis. This week, it is Monterey. I will be in Toronto, Denver, Raleigh, and DC/Baltimore over the next month. I'm loving the fact that I'm going to get some frequent flier miles. I'm hating the fact that I'm going to get no rest. Sheep and Wool falls into this time, and it really is becoming hard to justify the time away. I'm sure that once I'm there, I will feel completely different. Right now, I think I'm nervous about staying in a hotel room with many people that I don't know. Thankfully, I've got some of my knitty meetup gang from MD in the room with me. So excited to spend time with them! And I'm excited to meet people whose blogs I've been reading for a while. Eh... my nerves will pass - once I get some rest. Tomorrow is my time for exploring the Monterey/Carmel area. I plan on going to the
