She's alive!

Finally over whatever it was that wiped me out, I was down till about a week ago. So why did I wait to update till now you ask?? Well I've started at a new job and have been kinda busy with that. My insomnia's been worse too which hasn't been helping :oP

But this isn't a poor me post, it's a knitting update! So on to pictures :oD

Knucks - finished one, will be casting on for the second tomorrow. I had some woolease in my stash and liked the color so that's what I'm using :o)

Ripple Weave Wrist Warmers - remember my sock I wasn't speaking too?? Well I "fixed" it's a wrist warmer!! I LOVE this thing and have cast on for the second one (no pictures of it yet...I'm only about 5 rows in)

yes, that's an insane number of ends to weave in...but I adore this hat so much I'll willing to do it.

So...yeah, that's what I've been up to. And I bet you're still wondering about my new job huh (of course you are..haha). Well here's my boss and his wife (and me)...

Slight Delay

I know, I didn't update when I said I would...and this is just a quick post :o(

I've been hit with a bug or sooo drained, and not really feeling up to taking time to make a real post.

So quick mini update:
I've updated my WIP list:
  • took off the counterpanes to go handbag....cause I'm really not interested in working on it at all, haven't decided yet if I'm going to frog it or just stick it in a box somewhere and forget about it for awhile
  • added knucks, I've really grown attached to fingerless gloves and decided I need another pair...they're green :oD

I haven't really been knitting much lately; my hands are VERY dry and having yarn over under and through my fingers irritates them greatly.

That's all for now, I've gotta go take a nap and recharge :o(

I did it; made myself finish with the knitting of Nautie

As you can see he's not quite finished yet...still need to give him eyes. I couldn't find my felt this morning though so I'll be adding them sometime later when I locate it :o)

I promise I'll make a "real" knitting update tomorrow (including updating my sidebar)

Yep, that's the Nautie I've been working on...poor thing's been like that for almost a week now. I'm sick of looking at it but am going to try and make myself finish it today...

I'll post another picture tomorrow, might not have eyes but hopefully will have all it's tentacles :o)
