A blog about knitting, and some other stuff....

Hi,
So I'm not good at blogging, I'll admit it. For awhile there I was doing quite well, but recently (read: past year), not so much. I was upset about my procrastination for awhile (as I often
thinking about blogging), but recently I have embraced my sporadic and undependable blogging habits. And so I present to you: the baby sweater I finished in April:

If you think it's awesome and want to knit one too you can find the pattern here (http://wishingiwasknitting.blogspot.com/2007/07/baby-jiffy-knit-sweater.html). I made mine in Knit Picks shine DK weight. Soft, pretty and machine washable and dryable, no complaints here.
And I had just enough yarn!

Actually I didn't have enough yarn and the arms look slightly too long, although in reality the body is a little too short. So it goes.

I also graduated
Yay art cons for being nearly the smallest major in our freakishly huge university!

Then I started this sweater, which looks very crinkly in this shot.

I also am doing cables. I didn't use to like cables (in a how they looked sort of way, not in a how to knit them sort of way), but now I've changed my mind (good story). And cabling is really fun.

I'm just winging it, as always. This is my first real person (vs fake person or child) top down sweater. I'm enjoying being able to try on as I go but I don't feel too secure with this method yet. I'm using the four skeins of Green Mountain Spinnery's Cotton Comfort that I picked up at a sale last summer. So far this yarn is super great and you should use it. Will it be enough yarn to finish? Most likely not. Why do I always have this curse? Always There's an easy solution: buy more yarn the first time around, stupid....

Also, fresh chickpeas:
In a pod and on a plate

Bright green!
They're pretty good too :)
