Google Sucks

This is partially my fault for being a little too overzealous with my internet "spring cleaning," but I removed Friend Connect from my blog, and now almost all of my comments have been deleted! Boo, Google. Boooooo... And yes, I have been MIA for a year and a half, but it still ticks me off. I never even signed up for half of these Google products that have somehow wormed their way into my account. Oh well, maybe this is a sign for me to revamp this blog. We shall see.

In the meantime, here's a random pic from the "Knitting & Hot Chocolate: How to Knit a Marshmallow" event at City Bakery back in February.

48 Stitches

Apparently I can't do math without a calculator...

That's supposed to fit around my upper arm. Yeah... 'nuff said.

(Let's hope it magically stretches out once I remove the provisional tail yarn. Keep your fingers crossed for me!)

Done! I finished this about a month ago, but never got around to posting... Anyway, here's an in-progress shot of the blocking. It really makes a difference!

Of course, it's the middle of summer and 90 degrees out, so it'll be a while before I can actually wear it. Consider this a soft unveiling. :P

Mitten Redux

Okay, so here we have version... I've lost track of what version I'm up to... the latest version of the modified Axel Mitts. I think I have it perfected now, though it has yet to be blocked. And NO IRON this time! But something tells me I'm not going to have enough yarn to finish the second mitt, hmm...

So apparently I've been blocking wrong all this time. If only I had paid more attention I would have known that you should NEVER steam ribbing!!! No wonder all my mitten cuffs expanded so much! I've been on a knitting hiatus, but when I start up again I have a couple of pairs of mitts to redo. :P

Oh, and since I feel obligated to include some pictures, here are the baby booties I crocheted for my cousin's adorable baby girl! I got the pattern came from a Japanese book. Luckily Japanese crocheters are big on diagrams. I was a little nervous about it coming out like the picture while in progress, but once it was done it came together pretty well. Yaaaaay... (Hopefully they fit!)
