I'm Adventuresome!

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Adventurer. You are through those knitting growing pains and feeling more adventurous. You can follow a standard pattern if it's not too complicated and know where to go to get help. Maybe you've started to experiment with different fibers and you might be eyeing a book with a cool technique you've never tried. Perhaps you prefer to stick to other people's patterns but you are trying to challenge yourself more. Regardless of your preference, you are continually trying to grow as a knitter, and as well you should since your non-knitting friends are probably dropping some serious hints, these days.

I'm up in your stash!

Whoa. So yesterday I went "over the hill" for Felt Club XL and spent way too much money. Since I was already in Hollywood, dealing with traffic from hell, I figured why not check out a few of the yarn stores I've wanted to go to for a while? I hit the Suss outlet on Olympic and then I decided to head to the regular Suss store. I have to say, I liked the prices better at the outlet! Every single skien - $4!!! I did pick up some pretty yarn at the regular store, which I'm planning on making into something for my mom. And I saw Gina Torres there! Yeah sure, Standoff and all that, but to me she'll always be Nebula from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Yes, my childhood consisted of Hercules, and little else :)

Frustration, and swatching

I've been out of it for a while - I was visiting home for Thanksgiving, and I just started a new job that's literally kicking my butt. To top it off, I'm in the middle of swatching for one of my three remaining Christmas gifts, and I just can't get it into gear. Finally, after more swatching than I can stomach, I found a pattern that's perfect for the intended recpient.

I'm so out of it I'm worried I won't be able to finish all my gifts by Christmas :(

I promise to put lots of pictures up soon...I no longer have hours of free time at work, which somewhat hampers my blogging ability.
