Cyn's knits and stuff
I bought more yarn. I think I am a yarn junky. There are so many projects and so little time. Yet, I can't seem to find the restraint to buy the yarn when I plan on knitting the item. :-/ I think my dh is going to go nuts. He had made comments when I bought 30 balls that were on sale last year. I've made a blanket and am almost done with a sweater for Maya with it. Yet I still have about 10 balls left. I also bout yarn for a Dale sweater 2 years ago that I plan on making, but haven't had the time. Then I went to Gjestal Spinnery and bought patterns and the yarn for 2 more projects. I'm also in the middle of making a Setesdal sweater and a Dale Ridderspore for Maya, I want one for me too, but am doing a good job at holding back buying that yarn.
Well the other day we had a new addition to the Nordic Knit Webring (strikker
) and while checking out her blog I saw a post
with variegated yarn. I did my best to resist, but I ended up giving in less than a week later. So now I have socks to make.
Ohhh, update on the computer situation. We have a friend that just gave my son a computer! He is a good friend and thought we could use an extra one for my ds homework. The hardrive is 20g (I think that is how it is written) so when we get it set up to our home network, we can move some files over and I can get on with more pictures! Yay!!!
Papas Little Girl
Well a friend was commenting on seeing a baby in a sling while she was visiting in NY. So I had to mention this is what we do with our dd.
Last year we took a trip and took a few pics so.
Just for Cat, Papa and his little girl slinging it! :)
I got nothing fun done today. No knitting, no cross stitch, nothing!
But hey, that is the way it is sometimes. I'm trying to set up a space so dh can paint his minitures and I can keep my knitting and other stuff. So far it is working, but is taking a lot of time to set up.
Hope all is well with everyone in the blog world. :)
Back to school
Summers are so short here! My darling son is back to school and it feels like it is too soon. He seems very happy to be back, but isn't to happy about the homework.
As for me, I have been working on a few projects. I started a cross stitch of a colorful cat and I have gotten half of the Ridderspore body done.
Oh and on the computer, we need to buy new stuff. Since we aren't that well off, this may take a bit of time. So pic's might be a bit delayed On top priority at the moment is my ds wanting to get on-line with his dad. So we are setting up an Asheron's Call 2 account for him. So upgrading our computer is in progress. To even get in the game we had to get a new video card. So it is running, but barely. Next will be a new system board, than a bigger hardrive (then I can get the pics and my blog going full speed ahead), and lastly extra memory. I'm thinking maybe about Christmas we should (hopefully) be up to scratch.
Take care. :)
Ok, here is another
This time I only froze the mouse. I un-pluged it and re-plugged it in. As for the picture, I had to adjust the brightness and contrast to be able to see the actual look of the pattern.
So this is a pattern in the other book I bought with the yarn.
Off I go again. :)
Ok, this is going slow. I've tried to make a post earlier, but things froze. I had to scrap it and re-boot the computer. Now, I think I've got at least one picture available for you all to see.
While I was on vacation I traveled to the Gjestal Spinnery. Here is one of the patterns with yarn I got. Well, actually I got the book, but this is the only pattern I bought yarn for in it.
I'm off to try to get more things working on this puter.
Take care. :)
Photo issues :o(
Hi all, I'm still around. I haven't been doing a lot of knitting lately. We've had a bit of computer problems and posting photos problem, and now an uploading photo problem. *sigh* Our phone is also having issues (we have an ip line). I wonder if this is the stem of it all.
With it still being summer vacation and all, I don't have a lot of time to try and fix all of these, so it is going slowly.
Nordic Secret Friend
I've been wanting to post a pic of what I got from my N Secret friend. It is 3 balls of Blizzard Silke Frottè. Unfortunately, I can't find a pic on line of it, so you will have to wait till I get my photos back in order.
I've got a bit of this pattern started. I had planned in my mind to make one for my daughter and one for me. While I messed up on the gauge the first time around, I decided to do hers first. Since she is littler, it will give me a chance to get use to this. I guess I am still a little scared of messing up on a pattern like this. I have barely dabbled into 2 color work and here I am attempting 7 colors.
Take care. :)
