I’ve become bored with my blog. Blogging seems to be more of an afterthought nowadays than anything else. I’m not saying that I don’t like blogging, I love blogging. I love the friends I’ve made from my blog, and I love showing off the stuff I make 🙂
It seems like all I blog about is what I’m knitting and try to post a picture when I’m done. I’m shaking it up. I’ve started a new blog, and I’m going to try to blog more often. Not just about knitting, but my life, and whatever I feel like blogging about. I’m stepping it up, people, so stand back.
I’ll be starting my new blogging adventures over at my new blog, Kaity Knits… A Lot. I was tired of trying to come up with clever blog titles, and I wanted something simple and easy. I’d say it get’s to the point, too.
I transfered all my archives and stuff over to my new blog, so if you’re looking for something on my blog, all my old posts are there, too.
Please re-direct your bloglines and update your bookmarks, or whatever you do, so you can keep up with me on my new blog.
I signed up for that Hogwarts Sock Swap thing a while back, and have been putting off and putting off starting the socks that I am knitting for my Slytherin Pal because the deadline is in October. Well, I finally ordered yarn for them Yesterday. I’m going with Felici from Knitpicks, in “Arugula”. The yarn looks nice to knit with, and it says it’s super soft, so that’s good!
The thing is, I wasn’t paying attention when I ordered the yarn, and only ordered one ball. At 218 yards per ball, it would take 2 to knit a full-length pair. It seems my partner is getting ankle socks! I hope you don’t mind, partner, if you’re out there reading this.
Until my yarn arrives for the socks, I’m off to go knit more washcloths.
Back when I was little, probably like, 10 or 11, I used to go over to my Grandma’s house and ask her to show me how to Crochet, then I would do a few awkward stitches and leave, and forget about how to do it, until I would go over some other day and ask her how to show me again, and she would. Well, one day I must have wanted to stick with it, and I did this:
The first yarn-y thing I ever made. A crocheted cotton… something. It had an unintentional ruffle at the bottom (?), some crazy shaping (again, unintentional) until I got bored. And I gave it to my mommy, and she still uses it as a washcloth.
After I made this, I forgot about crocheting and knitting until I was, like, 15 or 16 when my Grandma taught me again, and It’s been non-stop ever since.
This is one that I made for my sister today. It seems I’ve gotten a bit better at this, huh?
