Sorting Hat

You scored 12% Slytherin, 12% Ravenclaw, 76% Gryffindor, and 24% Hufflepuff!
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.

Gryffindors are known for their courage, audacity, and devotion to what is good and honest.

Tiny Sweaters

Instead of finishing my hourglass sweater I made this tiny sweater isn't it cute : ) I should have made the turtleneck a little longer.

My first Sock

Here are the 1st 3 rows of my sock.

It's Regia Mini Ringel in Rio. The pattern I have says to do the first 24 rows in ribbing which seems like a lot the picture looks like maybe just the first 1/2 inch or so is ribbed.

Any suggestions?

What Kind of Yarn are You?

You are Mohair
You are Mohair.You are a warm and fuzzy type who works well with
others, doing your share without being too
weighty. You can be stubborn and absolutely
refuse to change your position once it is set,
but that's okay since you are good at covering
up your mistakes.

What kind of yarn are you?
brought to you by


So my first day of vacation including visiting 2 yarn stores in Sturgeon Bay and Whitefish Bay Farms, a sheep farm and Bed and Breakfast. Since I spent all my money the first day (oops) the rest of the long weekend was spent visiting relatives, reading Rococco and knitting. I need to take a picture of the yarn I bought at Whitefish Bay Farms - they have the wool from their sheep (corriedale) made into yarn and sell it in the natural colors. I bought 8 hanks of the nice chocolatey brown. Thanks to Erica from my knitting group for the suggestion! Also bought my first sock yarn! some for me and some for baby socks!

I don't know how I feel about being plastic

You are plastic.Futuristic, milky, and silky, you are willing to go
where no crafter has gone before. You can do
just about anything, with strength agility, and
pretty colors to boot! While you are good at
slipping and sliding out of sticky situations,
remember to stay where and when you are needed.
Don't overdo it on star gazing when there's
earthbound knitting to be done!

What kind of knitting needles are you?

Norbyfest Report

So Norbyfest 2005 is officially over. I taught my SIL DeeDee how to do a hat in the round. And I got my cousin Samantha to start knitting a seed stitch scarf. My brother took a picture when I was looking a different direction so hopefully I can get that sent to me and post it soon!
We also had a Custard Taste Test - we did a blind testing of Kopps, Leons, and Culvers. Kopps won a majority of first place votes. The testing was all vanilla custard I'm sure they would have been clobbered even more if there would have been flavors.
Owen came to my house Friday night - well Saturday at 1:30 am and when he got up he started playing with balls of yarn he was running around unwinding kitchen cotton and putting it on his head by the time I got my camera out his dad had taken it away : (
