Good, the bad, and more good.

I now have a camera at my disposal, but alas, I am on my way to Wyoming today. I wish it was to see the awesome knitters of the flat windy state, but it is instead, to take care of my great grandmother.

I brought plenty of knitting, its just a matter of knitting sock in the car.... which I have NEVER attempted to do before. I also brought the snowflake lace sock yarn and needles, but I cant find the pattern anywhere. The depths of my apartment ate it. So yeah, I should have some FOs and stuff to post when I get back, or maybe even while I am there.

BTW- Ravelry is AMAZING.

The search is *somewhat* over!

So I found a pattern... But I would make them uber shorty socks so that they would look cute with a skirt or something... in Falcon's Eye. And if I have enough I will be making a matching pair of Fetchings to go with.

I cant figure out the colourways for the RPMs but its the blueish-purple-y colourway from Blue Moon. I need to find a 4 or 5 DPN pattern for it, instead of two circs.

Im knitting up some other kid scarves and stuff, maybe stuff to throw up on ebay so I have some cast or something... I dont know yet. Its using up some scrap yarn leftover from Moms Aubergine scarf and some scarves that her mom made awhile back. I need to seriously downsize on the amount of scrap yarn I have laying around.

Sock addiction

So since I am almost done with the second sock (no not really, but Im about to turn the heel....) I want to pick a new sock pattern to use up some of my Socks That Rock yarn I have stashed around. I have 3 skeins of it, two Multicoloreds that I have NO clue what the colorway name is (Note to self: Contact Tina and ask if I supply pictures if she could possibly make more or at least tell me what the colourway is?) and one skein of a shaded solid. So I have been through hundreds of sock patterns but I cant find anyone that fits my requirements...

-Uses only 1 skein of STR (dont ask me what weight, I dont know... )
-top down
-4 dpns used, preferably in a 1 or 2 or 0 size.

Until then, I guess my bus knitting may consist of a pair of Fetchings.

Oh.... Sleep Deprivation.

Well I am back sooner then I wanted to be, and without the nifty page header I have been working so graciously on whenever I have the chance. I do not have FO pics or any other sort of inspiration, other then I finished my first sock finally. It looked like crap until Caitlin showed me the utter brilliance for three needle bind-offs, and I will officially start my second one while on my way to Bumbershoot tonight to see Anberlin and then back again for Kill Hannah tomorrow morning.

Saw Gogol Bordello last night, have no pics yet, but I may next week courtesy of a friend I met in the pit, as well as some from the next two nights.

Meanwhile, I am crocheting washclothes for Rabbitch in some cotton that Caitlin gave me a bunch of, and I still have to get all my squares out in the mail on Tuesday (I hate holiday weekends. x.x)

Otherwise then that, all the knitting is getting packed outside of the sock and stuff since Mr. Roommate and I are moving even closer to Seattle. Too bad it wont be before Stephanie hits Seattle on the 14th to talk. Ill have links and more information up for you guys soon!
