Wow. Insanely hot today. too hot to do anything. Even knit. It's a scary thought, not picking up those needles! I'm very close to finishing the back of the London Calling sweater from Stitch N Bitch Nation. Sure, it's light weight, but oh no I can't have anything toch me.It's far too hot. 30 degrees celcius and climbing. Pure knitting hell.
Tooo hot to knit.....booo.
I feel like a turkey slowly roasting in the oven. Yarn is not my friend at the moment.

This took me from June 2004-December 2004 to complete. But it's my first knitting project ever, so give me a break! It's a PS/CoS style Ravenclaw scarf.

More FOs to come.

I'm in love...

...with a yarn shop. I've been meaning to check out Kreative Knits and Designs ( for a while now, and I finally did a few days ago. I'm used to getting my yarn at big impersonal stores like Walmart and Craft Canada, where no one has a clue about knitting. So when I went into this tiny store, I didn't know what to expect. But the woman there was super nice, and knew so much about all the yarns she had, which made me feel so welcome and not so confused as I am at other stores. I meant to just go in and get a size 6 circular, but left with some size 13s too, and a ball of Bernat Galaxy in Venus , which I prompltly started knitting up into my Lacy Scarf of Doom (pics coming soon!). I went back to KKD today and bought a set of 12 bamboo needles in a nice case, and a ball of Opal sock yarn in color 1123 , which is amazing yarn, because it's self stiping and makes its own pattern! It's goregeous wool/silk blend...I can't wait to knit it up!
Anyhoo, that's my knitting adventures for today...someday soon I will post my FOs and UFOs!

Welcome to my knitting blog!

Hey everyone, and welcome to my blog where I'll post all my knitting related stuff. My projects, additions to my yarn stash, problems, tips, whatever, as long as it's knitting related. I must warn, I only have a webcam at the moment, so my photos will be pretty awful, but I want to get a digicam in the future, so let's hope, huh?
If you want to read about other things in my life, head on over to which up until now housed my knitting hobby, but I think it's time to expand. Please comment, I live on internet contact (j/k). Enjoy my site, and keep smiling!
