Presh-ious Knitting

A little blog about knitting. Well... mostly whinning about how little time I have for knitting.

So tomorrow I'm heading off for a vacation destination unknown (well unknown to you at least) to decompress for a little while. I've been comissioned by my mom to knit an afghan for a dear friend whose house recently burned to the ground (like literally to the ground, there are no walls left). This is my vacation knitting project: a neutral color afghan knit in a LARGE gauge so that it might be completed in one week.

This is Artic from The colors do need to be neutral, since we don't know how my mom's friend will decorate her new abode. The pattern calls for #13s, so I might get this done, right?? Anyone with me?

Here's a close up of the stitch pattern. Maybe you remember I knit this pattern into a scarf with some ice blue Cascade 220 wool. Once you get the hang of it, the pattern is super-duper easy but interesting enough to keep my mind occupied though EIGHT HOURS of car-riding.

See ya'll in a week!

I'm an idiot

Because I can't figure out how to put buttons in my sidebar. Someone please help me!

I know, I know

It's been so long, I know. My parent's computer is a dinosaur, so I've had to find alternative means of connection. This is a quick post, so here are some projects I'm working on right now:

Everyone loves a mitered square! I've got more than this, but they were unavaliable for photos.

Warshcloths! From The Bible aka Mason Dixon Knitting Book, same as the mitered squares. These will match my sunflower-themed kitchen - I'm also working on a swiffer cover which I'll post the pattern to later.

And finally, again from the Mason Dixon Book of Wonders - a log cabin blanket for my living room. I'm trying to place the three blues in a spiral pattern that I saw somewhere online (can you see the sprial?) Also I'm making the "logs" one row larger every time, so that's why it looks a little wonky.

Sorry for the delayed post and the crappy pictures!
