My Random Monday - August 22nd


1.  My short skews are not going well.  I'm using the SKF technique - SWAG, Knit, Frog.  I know how to do it... generally. I'm just being a little discouraged by all this frogging! I think tonight I'm going to sit down and actually THINK about what I'm going to do instead of knitting and guessing.


2.  Lilac has been having lots of outside time.  She loves it!


3.  When Lilac is outside, I sit out on the porch, and I've been keeping my crafts in bowls and plates.  It's so soothing to sew the little petals onto my knit hedgehogs...


4.  I'm going back to school, but I'm not so sure what I'm going to do.  My plans for school were kind of ruined when my internship unexpectedly ended, but I'm trying to make the best of things, even though I'm not sure where I'm going to be living at school I bought some supplies today anyway :)

5.  Oh, I was published!


I designed this knit jellyfish last summer and submitted it to the Knitting Pattern-A-Day Calendar.  Well, the 2012 Calendar came out, and I'm innit! They even sent me a complimentary copy! SQUEE!



  1. Congrats on the publish. I'm in the same calendar. I forgot what date mine is's the Isabella Hat. :)
