This is a little toy I knitted up a few weeks ago for a co-workers son. It was an awesome and easy pattern from the Winter Knitty

This was a really fun knit. I was thrilled to used some leftover yarn I had lying around.

Yes I'm still alive

Wow I can not believe the last time I posted was just after Thanksgiving. I am bad! In my defense we were having our kitchen remodeled, had a computer virus, and adopted a new cat!

These are my boys

I adopted him from Kitty Kind . A very nice organization that uses space in the Union Square Petco. He is sweet although a little spazzy. Those two full on wrestle; it is hilarious.

To everyone who has emailed me and I haven't responded, I am so sorry. I hadn't checked my email in a while and it go so out of control I had to just delete everything and start over. I have just been so out of the loop lately.

I am feeling revitalized though with the beautiful weather and, while I have not been posting, I have been knitting. I update with some pics this weekend.

Hooray for Spring!

Hopefully everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. I had a very yummy and VEGAN one. On Friday my husband and I got up at the crack of dawn to go to IKEA but our living room is finally looking good. The sewing room is also fully functional and I took full advantage of it. I finished seaming up my sweater and I sewed up a new bag for myself.

The sweater is out of Elann's Lara cotton. The pattern is Genoa out of Jaeger's JB16. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. After this photo was taken I washed it by hand and it is currently drying. I hope that the wash will soften up the cotton a bit.

The bag didn't really have a pattern although I used a bag pattern out of one of my Burda magazines as an initial guide. The fabric is a Damask that someone had purchased on vacation and given to me as a gift back in college. I have always loved the fabric but was never sure what to do with it. Some of it was used to make a knitting needle case and the other is now this:

So we are all moved in, not unpacked completely, but in nonetheless. I am loving the new place, even though my commute is a bit longer. I never realized how uncomfortable I was in the small Manahattan apt. I feel so much more relaxed in the new place. I don't feel nearly as frantic and crazed. It's wonderful.

I set up my brand new craft table and have all the pieces of my sweater blocking. I'll be seaming it up and adding the neck band tonight. Wish me luck. I may (gasp) have a FO by the end of the week.

Finally Moving

I've taken off all of next week to move. I am very excited about it!

Today I finally took pictures of the Mosaics at the 86th Street station (my current stop) on the 6 train.

I promise a FO when I am fully moved in and back online.

A nice detail

My favorite guy

Next week I'll be moving from Manhattan

to the 'burbs

When I'm settled, I'll be able to resume normal updates. I will have an entire room devoted to sewing/crafting/knitting!!

Well it's been a while since I last posted. Still waiting calmly for the contract on our house to be signed (what the F**K is taking them so F**king long to sign the G*D D**M thing).

Mainly, though, I've been reading. The book is one I just happen to pick up it has to do with a boy wizard, pretty interesting. Just kidding! It's was an awesome book, I can't wait for the next one.

I have been knitting though, and ripping, and knitting, and ripping again. I'm working on an uninspired sweater out of Jaeger JB18. This one but with no beads. Yeah I'm in rut.

I did just get Anne Modesitt's Corset Pattern, which looks awesome on the couple of people I've seen who've finished it. I may have to set my other project aside in favor of this one.

Other than that, and the extremely TENSE train ride to and from work (where I can now be searched for no apparent reason whatsoever), things are great. Is it me or does going through random people's bags seem completely reactionary (not to mention totally a violation of civil rights) and highly innefective and LAME? I know people here at work are all like, "it's about time". About time?!! Soon they'll be able to enter your house for no reason and if you don't consent that's fine, you'll just be arrested that's all.
