But where are the pictures?!?! August 5, 2008

They don’t exist.  Well, that’s not true.  A few weeks ago I attempted to take pictures of my wip’s, but they didn’t turn out very good.  I think later today I will only stretch out a little bit of my Little Birds blanket and snap a few shots so you can get a feel for what I’m doing.  Then with the pointelle shawl, well, that may have to wait ’til it’s finished because it’s terrible trying to showcase the intricacies of it.  *sigh*

On a good note though I’ve decided what to do concerning the rest of my Little Birds blanket.  At KnitPicks I found a few different shades of green that I can add into what I’ve started already.  The only bad thing is that the color I would do next isn’t available until the beginning of September.  But then at least I could buy some yarn to quick knit up the new knitting bag and I’d come full circle by September’s start to keep truckin’ on my blanket.

The other thing I’ve been working on but not real whole-heartedly is a cloche hat designed by Cirilia Rose.  I’m thinking it’s me and my utter lack of being able to read through ALL of the instructions, but so far my hat does not seem as if it will be big enough for my head.  Which is funny because usually hats that end up in my wardrobe are slightly too big.  Hm.  Maybe I will have to let out some of the hot air and then it’ll fit.  😀  Or I could just add it to the box of goodies that is becoming more and more fun stuff for my cousin Fiona than any birthday presents for Carter.  Speaking of which (I know, I’m jumping ALL over the place today), the socks I started for Carter are pretty much a lost cause.  I think I’m just going to knit him a toy lobster like Jax’s (except all the same color) and maybe another toy.

I hope to get a lot more done next week.  This week my husband is working overtime (he didn’t get home ’til 7 last night!) so I’m not seeing a whole lot of knitting in my future.  But starting this Friday (I think) I’m going to become a semi-permanent fixture on my friend’s couch watching the Olympics and knitting my heart away.
