Done -dances-

Sweater is done!
Well, I'm going to block it before I send it, but this is basically the finnished piece!

I crocheted the neckline, so it didn't roll

And just because. . . you have to have two pictures of it's prettiness

I was at a Taiji seminar with a grandmaster.

woo, it was long, i'm very very sleepy.

I've been listening to loads of reggae lately, but it's pretty nifty.

I'm almost done with the back of the skull sweater, but I ran out of yarn while I was out :(

that's it.


Back is DONE! working on sleeves now.

I don't think I'll ever finnish this dress. I started it at the begging of february, but never pick it up. It was my first design.

this is the first skirt, I have the front of the dress to do as well as the 2nd skirt. ho hum

This is the back the point goes over my butt

I plan to finnish it this year :p

The front is DONE!

good-bye to intarsia!

Anyway, look at it!

And a close up of the head. . .

I've cast on for the back :) Which will go so much faster. . .

I'm up to the skull intarsia!

And I finnished the Toes for the Tabby socks. I'll have to get out the camera a photo soon! :) I'll update with pics later.


Okay, finally updating, with pictures! Everyone say. . . . YAY

Tabby socks WIP

This is sort of my "back-burner" project, I only do about 1 row a week, at most -.-

Here's the front of my mom's shirt. (basically this is what the finnished project will look like. .. the back is identical to the front)


AND! The loveh Skully sweater.

I'm up the the beg of the eyes now.

I got the yarn! I'm starting on a sweater for someone's daughter :) This should be done pretty quickly

I'm also working on the lickety split socks from Knitty.
And my mom's shirt! speaking of that. . . I finnished the front! all the little bobbley thingehs.

Anywho, that's it. Thought I'd update

So now I have a PO box that my knitting can be sent to, anyone have any ideas how I can actually be able to (at least) pay it off for the year with knitting?

I was thinking of setting up a website with some help from my S.O. , I'd have some of my pre-made things that could be at set prices (unless they want me to substitute yarn) and a place for requesting designs, and also a "I HAVE A PATTERN BUT DON'T HAVE THE GUTS TO KNIT IT" section.

:/ does anyone know how to get out there?

Here are some doodles.

And please note they are DOODLES! :p So I have an excuse for their lack of quality

skulls for sweater:

I'm really addicted to this blog now -sigh-
Anyway, so I'm about 3 inches into the Adrienne shirt. "Nicole 1" I think it's called. I photographed my dressmaker's doll with my knitted designs, so I can submit it to :/ I didn't think of that solution until it was past the deadline (july 1st) so I'll submit and have to wait until dec. -cries- Oh well, patience, right?
I haven't been working on my icarus shawl really, it's sort of the bottom dweller in my knitting bag (it's more like a body bag). I want to work on it, but I also have to juggle doing my homework in time. And now I have to fill out my home-visit form for the homeschooling group I'm in; but that's not much work at all.

Yay, I only have 7 more essays to write for Chinese history class. Yippie. I'm reading the Three Kingdoms, it's fun! There are a lot of people though >_> a tad bit confusing at times, it reminds me of when I read the iliad, but it's an easier read, at least concerning format, it's more like the odyssey(sp?).

Yeah, okay, kung fu was pretty cool today. We did lion dance and stuffs, no weapons though. My dad pretested for his black belt! Shifu wants me and my brother to help him with training since we're not testing. I think it'll be fun, probably by the time my dad is done testing, I might start. I guess it depends on how long the testing runs, if it's 12 monthes, than I'll do it, 9? I don't know, maybe. I'll probably wait until june 2006. Maybe even a couple of years. . . I don't really want to be testing anytime soon, but I certainly welcome the extra training we have to do!! :D This will be sweet because I get all the nice hard work without the stress of testing. I'll be like muscle-queen and pound everyone into the ground when I finally test XD Okay, I probably won't be that good. So now everytime we break during a class (except if he has us putting our sparring gear on) I'm going to make my dad do a form with me :) He's just going to love me nagging on him to practice.
I have every right to rant about martial arts on this blog because it is titled "Knit with weapons!" So I wrote the knitting, now I'm doing the weapon part ^.^
I love being inside the Lion head, it's awesome. I just love messing around with the eyes and the mouth; though I have no idea if it looks good or not :p
I should post pictures of YongSeok dressed as the monkey king! He looked so awesome in the parade!

okay, rant done. Now continue with your knitting

Got yarn for shirt! It is sooooooo gorgeous! It reminds me of reptiles too! Like the little rocky bumpy bumps.

I have to photograph it!! :D

but the only sad thing is that I have to work in st st for 14"

with no shaping -.- ooooooh boring

My shawl is going very slowly. . ..



That's the actual colour, whenever I try to do close ups the blue yarns turn grey ¬_¬

and here is Quest's Rasta headband (sorry for the blur)

Here's pics of my lacey Icarus shawl that i'm KALing with on craftster. . . it's so hard to get good pictures of lace >_>

Did someone say. .. reggae?

I made another hat! This one is for Tim, since he tested for black belt. I'm fine with that, I didn't have to pay for yarn :D I also made Quest's Rastafarian headband. I think I need to remake Temple's though, it's wayyy too big.

The headbands take like. . I dunno 20 mins? So I don't really care about having to do it again.
I'm getting a P/O box this Wed! ^ ^ Then I can do commissions, I already have a lady who wants me to do a sweater for her kid. I guess I'll post progress photos here.

So, what are my UFO's?

well, that headband for Temple.

My dress, which I think I'll work more on after Temp's HB

Icarus shawl! I am in love with that thing! I'm doing a KAL with iton which is my other life ¬_¬

I'm also THINKING (not starting yet) about doing a matching coin purse for my mom. I have a lot of leftover yarn. I might even be able to make one for myself, if I do a different yarn for the main body (homespun by LB maybe?)

And I ordered yarn for my mom's other present. That Adrienne shirt they always advertise :p

I really need to set down the needles and do my homework. Which is. .. basically writing >_> Chinese history writing, and writing for Ann.

booooo to schoolwork :p I love it and hate it :/

Yay! WIPs and FOs

Heh, I feel like I'm really into aliens or something :p

Anyway, I completed these a few weeks ago ('cept the purse, that was done on saturday)

PURSE! This is from a local farm, the design and the yarn. Example

close up of the awesome curly-Qs
I did this razor Cami as a KAL with the people at

Knit1 peek-a-boo tunic. This was a fast knit, but I used 3 skeins less than they did >_> but everything else is the same!!

And also another KAL, but I started this one. :D


Close up


The first picture is closer to the original colour.

Eep! Now I have to try and get my brother to photo me for my submissions .=.


Woah, okay. I figured if I'm going to get serious about some knitting stuff, I should join all of you bloggers out there.
Maybe one day I'll even have my own fans! I mean people. . . not those electric things.

So yeah.
I'm going to try and get photographs of my knitting so I can submit it to

of course, it's hard to get anyone to photograph me -.- I might have to ask my boyfriend (Jose) when he gets back from Texas.

I think I should have my own code name.
Jamaican me a shirt?


I need help for code names in the online world.
