Whole Lotta Shakin Going on

First of all, did I mention that


Teachers rock. My son has two teachers who jobshare (5th grade) and I'm already planning what I'm going to spin/knit them for holiday gifts. Every time I see them, there's a haloish glow around them. That's how much I love the hell out of teachers right now!

I've been knitting a lot.

Finished Cascade BFFs
They already went to my mom. See I've bartered for painting. She likes to paint (rooms too) and we have two kids rooms that need it. I will be trading 8 pairs of socks for two painted rooms. People PUHLEASE! You know I got the better end of the deal on that one!

I finished Clue 2 of SOTSII, but have been working on other stuff and haven't started Clue 3 yet. This is knitting up so nicely and quickly for me, that I figure I can finish up clue 3 while camping this weekend.

You know how I feel about the photos of unblocked lace. Trust me, it's going to be beautiful.

I've also finished the Filatura Di Crosa Ice Queen I knitted for my middle sister.

If you click on it and view the large size on flickr. You'll see the wee little sparkling beads.

See? Super busy! Oh and I am working on a pair of gloves for number 5 to go with the Modified We Call Them Pirates. I used a fingerless glove pattern by J. Campbell which I love and have made a bajillion times and charted myself up a pattern modified from the hat for the back of the glove. Done and done!

Photos coming soon. Only one glove is done and I hate all those damn ends to weave in, but the kid seemed to love them, so that makes it worth it!


  1. I think you're under valuing your socks. Or are the rooms huge?

  2. Cookie!

    I might be, but since I hate to paint more than just about anything, it's worth a lot to me. Plus, I think my mom has more of my handknitted socks than I do, so she would have gotten them anyway ;). She's sneaky like that.

    Luckily she likes plain socks so I'm going to knock out a bunch of pairs for her on one of my machines.


I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
