Stuff With Yarn

It's been so long since I've done anything here that I almost started a whole new blog instead of just writing a new post.

You'll be happy to know that I made some stuff with yarn over the weekend.  It's not so much that I haven't made anything with yarn lately, it's just that I haven't *finished* anything that I've made out of yarn.  I can't remember the last thing I finished.  Maybe a shark?  I don't know.

Anyway, I started a new project over the weekend and FINISHED IT in the same weekend.  Amazing, I know.  Wanna know what it is?  Of course you do.

Sock monkey booties!!

Ravelry linky here.

I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Snow, Cherry, and Taupe.  I used a 3.5mm crochet hook and found buttons in the button box to complete the booties.  Everything came from my stash!  Sorry, I hope you were sitting down.  Now I just have to find somebody's 6-9 month old to force them on.  I mean, uh, give them to.

I've been working on a Hitchhiker Scarf off and on for a while now, but it's still a skein and a half from being finished.  I might have another unfinished project or two around here somewhere, but I doubt it.

Since I started grad school I've actually done more sewing than knitting.  Something about cutting out fabric makes me feel less guilty about not doing homework than knitting does.  I currently have three quilts in progress and a slew of tinier quilted projects in the works.  Sweetwater's Reunion line is my current favorite fabric in the whole world.  Click that linky to see lots of excellent photos of the fabric.  Click through the rest of that blog while you're at it... I love their stuff.

Okay. We now return you to this episode of American Ninja Warriors.
