Yarn is my friend

i've been busy knitting for the last year. i've finished many projects. learned new techniques and found i really am happier with needles and yarn in hand.
i'm currently working on a Haruni shawl, its my aim to finish this one as my final project of the year.
next year i will go slower and work on bigger things like the afghan my husband says i should finish.
yea ok. i also want to make more wearable pieces not just hats , scarves and gloves. theres a few cardigans i want to make and i will damn it in due time. for now i'll end my post here and finish the row i had in hand before i needed to write this out. when i have a moment i will list all i finished this year.

Has it been a year?

my last post was Sept 15, 2009. i haven't blogged since for depressing reasons. My favorite knitter and inspiration passed away the morning after my last posting. it had been unexpected.
In response to it i shut down and could not bring myself to talk to anymore for a month except my husband and kids. i finished 1 knitted garment then and stuck it away, started a sock and never touched it after reality hit and i no long had a mom i could call and cry about knitting issues to. i lost everything then. i frogged the sock 6 months later since i felt it was attached to my sadness.
Since then i have finished a pair of socks and returned to the visible world of knitting with friends. I feared i would get the pity looks from the same people who knew my mom but they let me talk about her and we had laughs its just me who still cries when i think of her and miss her dearly.
Sept 16, 2010 marks the first anniversary of her passing

i will not be defeated

I've been plugging away at my garment.. Mariposa a tank top and as of last night I'm down to a bare few inches left to be completed.
the most pain in the ass part is doing bust darts when you haven't done them before. perhaps not the best thing for a beginner but its done and over with fugly or not i fucking finished.
once i get the top ends done i will take new pics and do the weaving in of the ends and be done damn it.

so dear turquoise microspun how you tormented me for the past 3 years go screw yourself i won dammit.

and i'll be using you again soon enough

Popping the garment cherry

i'm making my first real wearable. right now its probably 20% done, i have 5 inches of the front made, 5 inches on a back panel and the straps are already completed.
its taken me 3 years to make something for me that i can wear not just use...i made the 8ft scarf, winter set to go with it and all of the pieces were lost/destroyed, a knit shawl that i dont have a lot of use for. then i did a 10 square swap(the 11th person bailed so she gets nothing from me) eventually i will add on square of my own or just really big effin strips of stuff that i can seam togehter.
so now i've managed to learn to do left leaning decreases(obviously i know what and how to do right leaning lol) i know i hate seed stitch with a blood fucking passion first run of it on the tanktop i'm doing and it almost was ribbing cause i cant keep remembering k,p,k,p and p,k,p,k fubared it a few times. and definetly dont attempt that in the dark again or after a beer lol.
in a week i'll be knitting with my mom again for a 9 day vacation i'm so ready for it
on that note my lil man is up and i need to change him

focus people focus i haz it

ok my blog here has been lacking i wasnt focused enough to concentrate on knitting anything for friends or myself. i bo'd my last swap related project which still hasnt made it to the post office yet.
since then i have made 2 barbie dresses, cast on for a pair of yoga socks and started the straps for a shirt by the name of mariposa
as of currently my sock is 1/2 done and with another one to go and i'm only a few inches into the strap but its better than going oh i want to make this and i have the yarn but i've got to finish something else first
now i suffer from omgiwannamakethat- itis its prolly an incurable disease but treated by being broke and not able to afford the yarns lol.

in that said back to and the instructions for mariposa
