Newest projects and RAK

For the person that decided to correct my spelling with out leaving their name...Yes I know the plural form of "scarf" is "scarves", I just HATE how that word looks I think it has something to do with my life long hatred of the letter "V", so I simply refer to more than on "scarf" as "scarfs". Be sure to leave your name so I can thank you personally next time...

On a lighter note I bought a knitting kit from target the other day on clearance, well actually I bought two:

sorry no pics of these kits, I couldn't find there website

Knit this: Baby bib/booties/bonnet

This is going to Rachel for her baby she is about to have, I tweaked the design a little and put a knit flower on it with her babes first and middle initial in it

Knit this: Yoga Mat Bag

This is going to me because I need something to carry my mat around when I go to classes and stuff.

And I love the plastic needles that come with these two kits because they are flexible and SO comfy to knit on...

Both for a grand total of 7 bucks, I can't beat that shit. Plus I got some new needles, 4 patterns, 2 yarn needles, and some nice pink and green cotton yarn.

I think I 'm going to go back and pick up the Knit this: Wine Bottle Cozy, I could use some new dpn that come with the kit LOL

But for those who want to see my newest boredom projects here are those scarfs that I finished last week...

My 11 foot long drop stitch that I think I'm going to send out for that exchange I'm in...



This one is my pride and joy, I made this one right at 6' long, using 3 dif yarns...Talk about a tangled mess...But it kinda reminds me of a Monet water color...Don't u think so?

And you cant forget about the 6' "Lipstick" scarf I just finished...


In other news in one weeks I had 2 RAK, I got a bunch of stuff in the mail for drawing. 3 drawing books to be correct: Pencil, Shading, and Color. You better believe I broke out my sketching supplies when I opened that up.

And my second on is a gift cer, To this REALLY nice tea website... www.adagio.com. I had to get some more Jasmine Tea, I wanted the white tea but its out of season *tear*

Then I also colored my hair Friday night, I now have short cropped light pink hair. I stopped by Sally's and picked up a few things of Manic Panic. When this gets old I'm going to throw on some Ultra Violet...

I think I had a pretty fucking good week. LOL

19 days till Vegas

You guys are so prolific, I've not even looked at my aspen needles in months. Summer is to busy for anything but jewelz and sculpting. I'm inspired to take some knitting with me to NYC in November. Do you think anyone will know I'm gay if I knit a lipstick scarf for myself on the plane?

I bought the bottle cozy at Target...$2.54 for the yarn was worth it... let alone getting needles too!!

Diana said...

Okay, I'm off to Target to check things out!

Grace said...

Hm, what would Freud say about your dislike of the letter "V"... lol... and that is damn cheap for yarn, knitting needles, AND a yarn needle! The scarfs look great, don't worry, you can't ever have too many.

Grace said...

You CAN'T have too many!! That's what I meant to say! You CAN NEVER have too many scarfs. Who is editing my posts? *looks around suspiciously*... Freud?

cherry blossom said...

oooh i love your scarFS :P that red one is so cool! it reminds me of this faux fur i had on a jacket a few years back....except it was purple.....and you're so lucky to have been RAK'd :)

anyway :) you should post up some pics of the hair! while i was working at hot topic, i always wanted to do mine super pink, but at the time i was living with someone who wouldn't have approved....so what do i do? go out and get my monroe pierced instead lol.

your 'scarfs' are beautiful! can't wait to see who you'll be exchanging with, and what they think.

19 days! then Watch Out Vegas! There's waaaaaayyyy too much trouble for you to get into in Vegas (wish you could bring some back for me too).

The plural of scarf is either scarfs or scarves. I've checked two standard dictionaries, so you can ignore the v's if you want.

Criosa said...

haha - can't be the clearance Target kits! I got the kits for the pink baby stuff, the blue baby stuff, the yoga bag, the wine cozy, and the swim suit. unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the patterns, but have come up with alternate plans for the yarn! I want to see your mods to the baby one though - might inspire me to modify the patterns a bit.

and your scarfs look great!

Criosa said...

er, that's supposed to say "can't beat". note to self - proofread.
