Orienting Myself

So... I'm officially in college.  And I officially don't like it as much as I would like sitting at home and having internet.  No pictures, either, since I left my camera cord at home.

More good news, and a little bad.

One of my designs is going to be published! Metapostmodern knitting sent me a message. I didn't win their sock contest challenge, I ran up!

I thought I'd publish some more sock designs. I don't have my favorite design, it's not on the computer anymore D:

Here's the design that's going to be published next spring, "Dude"

Crappy picture, sorry about that.

Here are my other babies. Please don't copy my designs, but if you'd like me to knit them for you, I will! The only thing keeping the socks on the paper is lack of yarn, really :<

The bad news is, I'm leaving Thursday for college! Waaaah, I'm kind of scared. Unknittably scared. That's pretty scared, for those of you who knit when you're nervous.

Another Fetchingly Knit Fetching

So, last night I finished my latest WIP, the one that's been sitting in the bottom of my purse for several weeks.  Anyway, it's another Fetching for mommy dearest.

I love the pictures I took of this, and I'm thinking about entering them in Knitty's calendar contest.

What do you think? Should I give it a go?

Renewed Inspiration

Summertime is a pretty lazy time for me, as far as crafting goes. I've been starting and stopping designs as well as individual projects, and the whole thing's been a drag. Work has consumed the vast majority of my waking hours, along with preparing for college. But a wrong turn onto a parkway renewed my knitting spirit.

I ended up stopping at the Wegmans in my town for coffee milk and sushi, and wandered into the magazine section. There, I browsed the knitting mags in an attempt to consume a fraction of the three hours of spare time I have between dropping my mom off at work and driving myself to work.

Vogue knitting usually isn't my thing, which is why I was a little surprised when I dropped it into my blue basket. Maybe my tastes have matured, or maybe they've become more hip... whatever the case, I brought it home. Now, I plan to use the rest of those three hours knitting.
