Me as anime!

Oh how I love me in animation…

medium_erin.jpg

Seriously. My co-worker and I made her and I think she is perfect. I wish lil’ me was real and hung out all day on my desk. Then at night she could jump on to my shoulder and go to the gym with me. She would sit in the little cup holder and tell me funny things while I was on the elliptical machine. Then later at home, she would sit next to me and knit a lil’ sweater.

I think I am going through a narcissistic phase.

Go here and make your own. I used the CandyBar DollMaker 3. Hours of entertainment. I also made sister/roommate Kara :

Doesn’t she look cute? It is SO her.

Enjoy.

Some of you may have heard me mention my selfish knitting tendencies. How my knitting and I form such a tight bond, I have a hard time letting go. So if you are reading this and I have knit for you, you should know…that’s love. True knitter’s love.

Toasty Toes is the first knit exchange I have joined and while I am excited to take part, I can see the potential for tragedy. You see, I think I am in love with my pal’s socks.

medium_lombard_start.jpg

This wasn’t anything I planned. It just happened. I think they had me at the Picot edge. So. Cute. The pattern is Lombard Street, designed by Susan and found in the most recent MagKnits. The yarn is Koigu KPM in this great steel blue color. I love mostly solid color yarns for socks–slight variations in the color give it an added dimension that I love.

My only worry about these socks is that there is not a lot of give in the fabric so I am holding my breath over sizing. I am on gauge though so hopefully I will be okay. Once I turn the heel I will try it on and make sure I can get it over my ankle–so let’s just hope they fit shall we? The only thing more tragic then the fact that I have to give these up, would be if they didn’t fit my pal. As much as I love the socks, I want her to be happy more.

well, i can’t really blame you for your ‘crush’ it is a lovely pattern and the yarn looks gorgeous! :0) x

Posted by: vera | 09/25/2006

They are so pretty. Maybe for me?!?

Posted by: Kathy | 09/25/2006

I can never give knitted stuff away. Just can’t do it.

Posted by: Kim | 09/25/2006

Lovely. You know, I have a relatively small foot. Just sayin’.

Posted by: susan | 09/25/2006

what a great pairing of yarn and pattern! i can see why you like them so!

Posted by: amanda | 09/25/2006

I have pretty small and skinny feet :), we definitely do not want you to go through all that trouble to have to rip it out, lol 🙂

Posted by: Isela | 09/25/2006

*sigh* I can see why your in love with your sock! Great yarn and pattern match.. your pal is very lucky

Posted by: Amanda Cathleen | 09/25/2006

How did you find out about the exchange? It sounds like something I’d enjoy.

Posted by: David | 09/25/2006

Ooh, even before I read your post I was thinking, “I really like the picot edge. Maybe I’ll have to try that with the next pair of socks I make myself.”

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the recipient having legs and feet that fit the socks.

Posted by: sprite | 09/26/2006

I just found your site from Amanda’s. I see that you made the Molly Ringwald top — do you still like it? Do you think it can be worn alone or do you need a top underneath it? Thanks for your help!

Like a kid on their first day of school, my Anna socks were very excited to come to work today. We took pictures right before we left so the world could see how they looked all washed and ready for the day.

medium_anna_front.2.jpg

medium_anna_back.jpg

I was surprised how once they took a nice bath they did a good job of staying up on the leg. I may still add some elastic but so far they are holding up well.

I think the Anna socks are having a fun filled day at work. Look at them hard at work on the computer…

medium_anna_laptop.jpg

Eating Todd’s famous homemade salsa…

medium_anna_salsa.jpg

And talking on the phone while trying to avoid people walking by and reporting me to HR…

medium_anna_phone.jpg

Oh yes, today was a good day for the socks. I think they might come back to work real soon.

The Stats:

Pattern: Anna Socks

Source: Rowan 40

Yarn: Rowan 4-ply soft, Black

Needles: US 2 & 3 double points

Mods: After about 21 centimeters (I feel very British talking all metric) I switched to size 2 needles to avoid bunching at the ankles and to make up for NO shaping.

Notes: The great thing about these is that they really don’t look like I made them. It is my little secret…of course I kind of ruined the secret at work today when I asked everyone if they liked the socks I made. What can I say?…I quite like them.

Save my Dog

I know. It has been forever since I have posted. As we speak the Anna Socks are drying and will be featured as my newest FO as soon as I can take pictures. So stay tuned. Plus I started my Toasty Toes socks. I am in love with the pattern AND the yarn. As soon as I am a little further I will give you an update on that. So I promise you will have a knitting related blog within a day or so.

But in the mean time I just had to show my support for one of my favorite television personalities in his time of need.

medium_duane_dog_chapman.jpg

Duane “Dog” Chapman has been arrested. And all because the Mexican government didn’t like the way he caught infamous and evil fugitive Andrew Luster. This is how I see it, sometimes when you are the greatest bounty hunter in the world you have to bend the rules a little to get the job done. And Dog always gets the job done.

Dog, I support you.

P.S. For those of you who don’t watch the show…you may not realize that Ice (Meth) is evil. Please don’t start.

Favorite quote of mine and my niece Emma’s from Beth (Dog’s wife): “Ice head, ice head, noni noni ice head”

Poor Dog! 😦

You’ve got me convinced. Ice is evil!!!

Posted by: Stitch-n-Snitch | 09/20/2006

Poor Dog indeed! I’m a fan of the show and am really bummed. I mean after all he took a REALLY evil guy off the street and now he’s being punished for it. So very wrong!

Posted by: amanda | 09/20/2006

Big frown! I think this whole thing with Dog is lame. He now has to wear an ankle bracelet and all of that stuff. As well as Leland and Tim. But Dog’s bail was higher. Humph! Anway… I’m pulling for Dog too. That MaxFactor dude needed to go down.

Posted by: Cassi | 09/20/2006

Oh Dog! You will always be my hero, brah…

Say no to ICE!

Posted by: Kara | 09/20/2006

Um… I must be living under a rock. “Dog”? “Ice”? What?

Posted by: David | 09/20/2006

I have no idea what you’re talking about. Is this a TV show??

Posted by: susan | 09/21/2006

i *heart* dog, never miss a show. i really hope this gets cleared up, and fast, cause their family is so awesome and well-adjusted and i just love them to pieces.

stay strong, brah! we’re with you!! =]

Child bearing hips

I think I was 13. My friend and I were talking to a nice older woman at church. For the life of me I can’t remember how we got on the subject but I remember her referring to my VERY petite friend and then turning to me and saying something to the effect of “now you have child bearing hips.” I was 13. I have never forgotten what she said.

The thing is, she was right. I suspect my hips would suit child bearing well. Of course, these are not realities an insecure 13-year-old should have to face.

Recently, I picked up Forecast again. I am gearing up for the fall so out come the fall projects I ignored over the summer. I finally finished the body of the thing, bound off and then tried it on. It fits perfectly…everywhere but my hips.

medium_forecast_front.jpg

There is still a button band to be added and I can close the cardigan but it stretches out the ribbing at the bottom. So why does it work on her? What is wrong with me?

Here could be some reasons:

  • I made the sweater a bit longer to be more flattering on me so the pattern was not written to accomidate for too much hip.
  • I bound off too tight and it is restricting the pull of the sweater.
  • I am a odd shaped freak.

I am leaning towards the latter.

I really do love this sweater. So I think I am going to undo my cast off (I HATE doing that) and re-cast off. What do you all think? Maybe I should just keep going and see. Sometimes I have a hard time visualizing the fit of a knit before I am done. I do love it though. Don’t you just love fall?

dare i say it, i think you should rip it and do it again- argh! of course, i am much happier giving out this kind of advice than i would be taking it ;0) it really does look lovely from the back…it would be a shame if it didnt fit right…hmm x
p.s definately *not the latter!

Posted by: vera | 09/14/2006

Sorry, I think you should rip back too – it really won’t take anything like as long as knitting a whole new sweater would – and I’ll bet that’s what you’ll have to do if you don’t love the finished item.

As for childbearing hips – I’ve had them since I was 13 too – except that they turned out to be rubbish for childbearing – both times I had really bad pelvic pain. Ah well. The children are delightful none-the-less (mostly!)

Posted by: Anne | 09/14/2006

I would rip it and add in whatever increases you need to make it fit. Then you will actually wear it. 🙂

It looks great by the way.

Posted by: natalie | 09/14/2006

I made the sweater longer than in the pattern, too, and I also happen to have these certain hips of which you speak – I think yours looks fine from the back. Ribbing is meant to stretch, after all. I can’t really tell from the picture, but if you think your bindoff is too constricting then by all means try again. Don’t redo the ribbing just yet, though – block that sucker out!

Posted by: Jenna | 09/14/2006

I would block it first and if it doesn’t fit properly, rip out and cast off again. No harm in trying!

Posted by: Lisa | 09/14/2006

I would probably rip out and re-do it. Speaking from a child-bearing hip experience (big hips on this side of the screen) I did a sweater by Wendy, the Essential Stripes, I made it longer so it would fit a bit lower, but I also added an extra stitch in some of the ribbing to allow for my extra hippage (ha!).
I hope you figure out a way because the sweater is lovely 🙂

Posted by: Isela | 09/14/2006

You should probably rib back. A lot easier than re-knitting the whole sweater. The sweater does look great!
P.S. Not the later. I had a doctor tell me once (after I had my 1st kid)and I was pregnant with my 2nd that I have child bearing hips. I think I bore a whole with my eyes into his head!

Posted by: Amanda Cathleen | 09/14/2006

redo the cast off… it will make a WORLD of difference. The difference between wearing and loving a sweater to death, or looking at it in your closet and cringing.

Posted by: Miriam | 09/14/2006

At least redo the cast off. Use a bigger needle if needed. You might try blocking the body to see how much it will stretch. If it still doesn’t suite you or fit you…you’ll know what to do.

Posted by: margene | 09/14/2006

re-doing the castoff will change things alot.. so will blocking. It is beautiful, but if you hate the fit you’ll never wear it. sometimes the sweaters that we have to ‘fiddle’ with become our favorites.
AND, btw, your hips look well proportioned to me… did you grow up in the “twiggy” days like I did? anyone who had even a small amount of curves was considered too big back then. sigh. I’m so glad that fashion has changed.

Posted by: Teyani | 09/14/2006

Seems like you’ve gotten enough advice on the sweater. Love the t-shirt underneath. I saw it on Gilmore Girls awhile ago and while loving it never picked one up. What’s better then reading and knitting 🙂

Posted by: Posted by: Christine | 09/14/2006

I have no idea what to do with the sweater, but I wanted to answer your other question. No, you are not an odd shaped freak!

You are curvy, and curves are HOT!

p.s. I have that same shirt in a different color. Reading is definitely sexy. 😉

Posted by: holli | 09/14/2006

I agree with Margene and Miriam. These ladies know of what they speak. Plus, my first thought was with blocking, it may surprise you. And it’s easier to try to do the bindoff again and then block it than rip the whole thing. Many times wool relaxes or stretches a bit once blocked, so it may take care of the whole tightness issue over the hips. I love the sweater.

Posted by: Wanda | 09/14/2006

I was just browsing knitting blogs when I came across yours, and had to comment. The “child-bearing hips” comment was applied to me at an impressionable age, too. I empathise completely!

I see you have lots of good advice already so I’ll just wish you luck with the sweater. It looks absolutely beautiful from the back, and I’m sure it will be just as good from the front too. 🙂

Posted by: Posted by: Rhian | 09/15/2006

does the ribbing pull so much that it’s uncomfortable? i hate it when the ribbing isn’t stretched out on the body. then it just screams Sweater of the 70s to me. *shrug*

Posted by: Sara | 09/15/2006

It reminds me of the time my church volleyball coach told me I had retarded arms because I couldn’t turn them all the way over to make a good volleyball hitting position. It crushed my future as a pro-volleyballer.

Posted by: amy | 09/19/2006

Do keep us updated, because I’ve just begun mine and, *cough,* have bourne a child through these hips. And I think they grew.

Utah Talent

The talent that can be found at the Jitterbug Cafe every Tuesday night can be intimidating. Before I ever attended the Salt Lake City SnB I was aware of some of the more famous knitters since I had found some Utah blogs and lurked big time. Well all kinds of notable things are going on right now so I thought I would alert you all to some current projects thanks to my Utah friends.

The first Utah blog I found was Laurie. She is also one of the first people I met from the group. Her recent venture is selling the most heavenly handmade soap–all for a good cause. Check out her site to buy and to learn more about the soap. My favorite is Gentle, in fact, it is in my shower now. There is just something about handmade soap that makes me feel indulgent. And this soap is just so…clean. I love it.

And then there is Katherine. My new favorite shirt was designed by her. Take a look at this blog post of Kara’s to see the shirt (I got her one too–I know, I am VERY generous.) Mine is army green. So cool. I know Katherine has some more shirts to sell and may be making more soon so I would contact her if interested.

Then, there is Miriam. Lace designer extraordinarie. Her newest shawl, Hidcote, is simply stunning. You may notice the model. You shouldn’t, the shawl is so stunning I wouldn’t notice anything but it. I just thought I would mention it since I thought it would be awkward if you recognized me and I didn’t say anything. A little embarrassing but Mim asked for my help and what can I say…I like jam. The shawl though, remember that shawl…sigh.

Finally, there is Susan. Susan is another prolific designer who has been published all over the place and whose designs are seen all over blogland. A couple of months ago I saw a test knit of her newest sock pattern, Lombard Street (available for free at MagKnits,) since that day I have been dying to knit these socks. I love, love, love them. I love them so much that this next announcement is difficult for me to make. I have chosen to knit this pattern for my Toasty Toes pal. Okay, it is out there. Now I have to stick to it. The best kind of gifts are the ones you would like yourself right? I ordered the yarn last week too. Once it comes I will reveal my yarn choice…suspenseful huh?

So there you go. Just a few things happening in my neck of the woods. Aren’t I lucky? I am so happy I de-lurked and can call myself a member of such a distinguished group.

Finally, I will leave you with what could be the most elegant photo of my sisters, my niece, and I from the big sleepover this weekend. Aren’t we beautiful?

Erin, ditto on keeping tabs — I’m so glad you have this blog! And it would be awesome if we could gather everyone we love together and live in a commune!

At the very least, I hope I get to see you someday soon. In the meantime, I am enjoying the incredible creations you make! You’re amazing. 🙂

Posted by: holli | 09/11/2006

my goodness there is a lot of knitting talent in Utah! Love the picture, your little neice is so lucky to be apart of such a fantastic family : )

Glad you had fun at the sleepover, but still sorry you missed Stephanie… she’s VERY fun.

And thanks for the linkies and lovely comments. 🙂

Posted by: Miriam | 09/11/2006

Aw, come on, tell us what yarn you chose for Lombard Street. Brooklyn Handspun? Artyarns Merino? Tiny Toes? All good choices.

Posted by: susan | 09/11/2006

love the group photo of the girl’s night… it’s pure love 🙂

Random Acts?

I am a generally likeable person, I think. People usually like me okay. Kara is nice too–not as nice as me but very, very nice. We smile at the neighbors, keep a clean yard, and would for sure go to town meetings or something if there were any. We are good neighbors.

So why when I stepped out of my house this morning was there a carton worth of eggs on my driveway and garage door? Who does this? I realized it must have happened in the morning because the eggs were pretty fresh. Also, while I was sleeping I awoke to a noise and thought it was Kara up early. But then she woke up after I did. So tell me, what angry or stupid youth gets up in the morning to egg my house? (I realize I am being judgmental with the whole “youth” assumption–if proven wrong I will stand corrected)

And why my house? I don’t have any enemies as far as I can tell. Then I realized that the mini grill I had in my backyard was gone. The squrty spouty thing for the garden hose…gone. So not only do I have a vandal on my hands but a thief. Then I started thinking back…

In the last few months I have found all kinds of random things in my yard. Crushed soda cans, a soup can shot up with what seemed to be a bebe gun, and some other random garbage. I wrote it off since it happened infrequently. I almost forgot about one night several months ago when I was home alone at 12:30 am, downstairs watching TV and knitting when the doorbell rang. I didn’t answer it, obviously, but soon after the ring the most uneartly screech rang out loudly and kept going for what was about a minute. It took me an hour to get up the courage to go upstairs to bed. The next morning I discovered the firework on my front doorstep.

Perhaps I am being paranoid but maybe these random acts aren’t so random?

I feel violated and angry. If punk kids are targeting our house then I will get them. How? I don’t really know, but hear me now, I will. What will I do when I catch them? Couldn’t really tell you. All I really want to know from them is…why me?

I’m so sorry that you have crappy people who live near you and are just being mean. They are probably doing this b/c you are two single women, I hate to say that but its probably the truth. You could set up a webcam if you have a window by your door and catch people bothering you, or you could call the police and let them know whats going on and ask them to drive by at night. I hope you don’t have anymore problems.

PS hows Glee coming? I’m going to rip mine this weekend. 😦

Posted by: Stefanie | 09/07/2006

I say stud your grass with dpns and lay out a trap of black sock yarn so they’ll get all tangled in it! 😉

Posted by: Stitch-n-Snitch | 09/07/2006

Whoever it is, they must be stopped. I suggest calling the police–and tell them all, especially about the doorbell ringing and the firecracker that act alone could have hurt someone very badly.

Posted by: Isela | 09/07/2006

Oh My God! I can’t believe that. Maybe you should ask your neighbours and see if they had similar things happen to their house.

Posted by: Lisa | 09/07/2006

I recently discovered your blog and think you are a very talented knitter. I once had to park my car on the street, and it was egged and I felt the same sense of violation you described. (Not to mention it took forever to wash off.) It’s an awful feeling. I don’t know if your home is being targeted, but perhaps the people who did it continued because they didn’t suffer any consequences? At least so far… I hope you catch the culprits.

Posted by: Posted by: *karen | 09/07/2006

I have a tendency to think that Karen may be right — that whoever does these things has discovered that nothing happens to them when they do.

I have some friends who set up a motion-sensor camera with an alarm on it to monitor a lot of vandalism that was happening at the vacant house next door to them. One night the husband chased down a guy who was stealing a chair, which is not something I would recommend. But if you did that, you could at least know when someone is prowling around and either call someone or yell at them or blow a siren or something to scare them off.

It probably is kids. The firework and the eggs sure don’t sound like something an ill-intentioned adult would do.

Posted by: Posted by: Katherine | 09/07/2006

Maybe you can hook up motion sensitive lights or a surveillance type camera so you can see who it is doing this stuff. It really is a bummer — hope you catch them and of course I can’t wait to find out what you do to them!

Posted by: amanda | 09/07/2006

You should consider buying motion sensor lights, a dog, and/or a gun, depending on how you personally feel about lights, dogs, and guns…

Posted by: Michael A. Cleverly | 09/07/2006

It’s not right and I hope you can get to the bottom of the problem. Ask around the neighborhood. Maybe someone has seen the culprits.

Posted by: margene | 09/07/2006

I had a girlfriend once who lived in an apartment with three other girls out near the airport, and she was constantly telling me about creepy strangers on her doorstep trying to get in the apartment. I’m not saying this is your situation, but it does sound like *maybe* you’re being targeted because it’s just the two of you. I’d agree with the suggestion that you talk to your neighbors and call the police. You shouldn’t have to put up with that.

Posted by: David | 09/07/2006

damn. I agree with everyone else. You should call the police and ask around the neighborhood. ((hugs)) be careful

Posted by: Amanda Cathleen | 09/07/2006

Oh, yeah, call the police and ask for some monitoring. Ours will drive by periodically if requested…that would make you feel safer and perhaps send a signal to the creepy people who are doing this. The video cam is a good idea, too!

Posted by: Leslie | 09/07/2006

I agree with Amanda Cathleen. You should definately call the police. We had a similar incidents happen to us in our neighborhood but they eventually stopped because we called the police and saw the kids doing things. Calling the Police is the best thing you can do and you should tell them about everything. Don’t worry they will watch your house and catch those little punks.

Posted by: Julie | 09/07/2006

how long have you lived there? Maybe the kids hated someone who USED to live there and haven’t the brains to realize that it’s someone else now.

That’s scary! Call the police next time… and talk to your neighbors to see if they saw anything weird.

Posted by: Miriam | 09/08/2006

i had my car egged once. in fact, the police came and woke us up. there were 4 other cars parked in the street that were egged. a block over, a car was keyed. thank god all i got as egged. that can be easily washed off. they’re just random acts done by bored kids. yes, i said it. kids. so all you need is to hose it down.

definately motion activated lights.. easy to install, buy at home depot.. get some BIG honking lightbulbs, and you’ll flood your yard with light when they even move close. Scare them with the light… I’m so sorry that you are having to deal with this. It’s very scarey.
