Progress and Domination!

See this? This isn't even the updated picture!

What you see is the beginning of my Eleanora of Toledo sock, which is now a few inches longer and well into decrease territory. I'm too lazy to take a new picture, so this is what you get for now. I'm quite proud of my pattern alteration skills, as I've had to adjust for pattern mistakes and my own preferences. Perhaps there will be more to come on that.

Also, guess who won Top Female Player of the ACUI Division 7 Regional College Bowl Tournament? That would be me! (Or I, if you're grammatically insane.) We came in 4th overall, but I'm still so excited. It would have been an even better weekend if I'd gotten some homework done, but I guess I can't have it all.

One Project Down, and a New One Up!

So I finished the Green Tea socks, and now I've started the Eleanor of Toledo socks, mostly because Sabine gave me the pattern and I was amused, so we shall have to see how it works out. (It'll be funny to see what she thinks on Craft Night Thursday.) They're going slowly. I'm only knitting them on 1.5's, so I feel bad for those who used 0's. They will be a looonnng project. I'll probably have something else going at the same time, and I have no expectations of finishing them this quarter. Oh well. Just wanted to drop by and mention the newness!!!

So, I know now that I'm not getting any Peace Fleece for V-Day, but I'm getting a schlager! Hooray swords for romantic occasions! Also, anyone reading might want to stop by Bark and Knit to enter a contest (ending on the 14th) by telling how they met their significant other. (And she sends honest to goodness responses.) Enjoy!

P.S. The second sock is almost done, but I have to stop and make myself read Native Son for English class.

P.P.S. Yay swords!

Continuing Progress

First piece of evidence for why I shouldn't use a camera. And here is the second piece of evidence.

These are both shots of the first sock for my sister, made on 3's (they're actually too short for me). I just hope my sister likes them. Earl Grey by the Yarn Harlot in Cucumber Melon from Thank Ewe. I like the colors, but then, green is my thing.

Now I'm just hoping that the Cat gets me what he said he'd get me for Valentine's Day...Peace Fleece!!!

Work in Progress

If my camera were more cooperative, I'd post a picture of the almost finished sock for my sister, based on Earl Grey by the Yarn Harlot. It's in a green handdyed yarn, so I'm calling it Green Tea, because I think it's funny. Then I intend to make some frankensocks for my brother, and then I might attempt Eleanora of Toledo's stockings, for the heck of it. I also entered a contest for the first time at My House of Wool, and I'm blindly hopeful, even though there are so many applicants. Right now the Cat and I are trying to find a place to live for next year, and it's not going too well, mostly because of arguments with the parents. Just keep hoping and praying.
