Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Drive by question. Can i block with stuff from around the house? I don't have a kit, but this shawl is in obvious need of blockage! So I'm going to finish up these last couple ends, and hopefully someone can tell me if its possible to use sewing pins and carpet

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

do you have foam letter square thingys I use those. Or I use a towel set ontop of the dryer (just because its an undisturbed spot in the house). And make sure your pins dont rust ... Someone had that issue before

No foam things. But my craft room is completely available and the door can be shut.

These are some yymn custom longies I'm making. The mama dyed the yarn herself to match the "vroom" fabric. They will have a 12 inch inseam.



Oh, and not quite a wip, although I *am* the only one that feeds her. Here was miss Alaina yesterday on game day!

the best kind of WIP!


Good morning! I didn't sleep well, I was up twice during the night with kidney pain and it's kind of freaking me out. Pixie was up early and sometimes she'll go back to sleep, but she pooped sometime overnight so that was out. I need to block these longies today and get an i-cord done, very very happy to be so close to done with these.

Love the fos/wips/baby Carolyn!

Here's mine, all done! Haven't decided whether to leave it natural or dye with tea. There must be some tea I have that I don't like

[QUOTE=Scaethach;15782810]Knit RB a red heart santa suit?



For MadTosh - I like it, don't love it. I like my own semi solids though, so it's hard for me to pay $20 a skein vs. $6 for bare, kwim? QUOTE]

please do make one of those!

where do you get your yarn? I know of wool2dye and the cat one..the name escapes me right now.

I threw in tons of single point knitting needles etc. too, cause I can't remember the last time I used those...
I knit a bit on super long straights over the weekend for DD...so annoying..the ends kept hitting the arms of the chair I was in. she has all my staights.

#2 Taken yesterday - See the "evil" in this one's eyes And yes that is a horribly ugly flowered couch DH was gifted, but it makes a nice trampoline apparently no matter how many times you say "Go use the real tramopline right behind it"
so cute! nah, couch is MUCH better than a real trampoline, come on Mom!

I thought we were all done with our costco butter but DH found some in the freezer and that was what was thawed. Sigh.
no more costo butter. I've never had a problem w/butter. I just buy the cheapest unsalted they have. Walmarts is usually cheapest, so that's what I have most of the time.

Is it spam if they are free? I don't like spam much either but free is good.
Only to the ladies who have posted in this thread previously please.

Have a wonderful morning ladies.
How sweet of you!

finally!!

I finished my TAS hat this morning. DH left w/o letting me take pix of it on him though, he helped me move the boys room around for his lunch break. The boys were sleeping in the same twin bed since neither wanted to sleep on the top bunk, so I unbunked them for now. Room is more crowed but at least they will have more room.

pic of hat in a sec...not that exciting. I'll see if DS will let me jazz it up by wearing it

Pho (pronounce 'fa') are vietnamese rice noodles. Theyre yummy and served in a beef broth with veggies. I love to add hoisin and siracha (hot sauces).

LOVE your buttons! Got so many compliments on the purple sleeper I knit. I'll put in an order for buttons as I figure out what I'm knitting for baby. I was going to do the tessa buy, but I can't figure out my projects that far in advance

Hope you get a nice nap today and your kidney pain resolves. A momma on my ddc has kidney stones which doesnt sound like much fun pregnant.

AFM: Off to start breakfast and excited to buy a schatch drop spindle today. Hope to work on my linen stitch second leg, but my carpal tunnel is acting up today. Hope my brace does the trick even with numb fingers.
