The perfect pattern

Finaly, I have decided on a pattern for my friend's blanket. I'm doing some pentagons that are knitted modularly and sewn together after. I don't know how many it's going to take, but i've decided to call it firmly rooted. I can't wait to see it grow!

Another new project

Sometimes I get so frustrated with my knitting. I just want to knit so I start a new project then the next day I feel bored with it so I start another one. Sometimes I just feel so constricted by knitting someone elses design. My hands itch to knit, but nothing seems good enough. Nothing seems exciting enough. I look through my entire ravelry queue but what once looked amazing holds very little appeal anymore.

The solution? Look through my notebook with all my scribbles in it and pick a project to start on. I know I dont' need to start another project, but sometimes you have to go with the challenge of starting something new and creating something unique.

My newest project? Another knitted dress. I know I've already knitted one, but I feel like I need something with more structure so I've started one with cables! I love cables and I know I haven't worked on my Samus for a while, but the thought of doing those cables just doesn't hold any appeal to me.

Ravelry Love

Dear Boss,

I must inform you that I will be eating my breakfast at my desk every morning starting immediately. I have decided that the time previously devoted to breakfast every morning will be better spent on Ravelry.

Have a great day.

Some FOs

I've been kind of busy for a while with work and summer music theatre has started up so I'm running around trying to get my fingers into music mode again. But here are a few more bracelets and such that I've made. My mom already stole them so they are no longer in my possession.

I wasn't feeling very well yesterday so I engaged in some yarn therapy with my newly acquired ball of Noro Kureyon and made myself a hat! It's kind of random and completely ungraceful, but it's got a little point at the top (just a little one) which makes me giggle and it covers my ears!!!! This is very important. I hate hats that don't cover my ears. Here is my top down ladder hat!!

The point!

And a close-up of the ladders!

My favorite part about the hat and the yarn?


Love the colors, love the yarn, love the hat!! That's a lot of love for one hat.
