Well I started a nice white sweater for myself a while ago and realized that I messed up the cables. I am going to rip it back and start over.

I haven't been posting here in a year obviously. I started a new blog about the loss of my baby boy and figured I might as well document my knitting on here again. Since I'm blogging anyway.
I've been knitting up fingerstaches like crazy. They are quick, easy and I've taught myself intarsia techniques. Pretty cool. Here is a pic of all of the ones I've completed so far. I've been knitting them for 2 days now and this is how many I've made!!
I honestly have no idea if my intarsia is correct or not, but it gets the job done. I'm sure my backsides are kind of messy. But hey, I'm the sloppy knitter so it's okay!

This month I've knit about 4 dishclothes and a Ribbit. Here is where the "sloppy" knitting stories come in! On one of the BallBand Dishcloths I accidentally knit a slip stitch a row early. It's pretty visible. I was too lazy to go back and fix it. I mean really..it's only a dishcloth. Then with Ribbit I made a huge mistake!!! I had all the parts ready to go. So I sewed on his arms and legs. Then I went to attach the head. After it was all together I couldn't figure out why the arms and legs weren't sitting right. I then realized that I had put his head on the wrong side of the body. Did I fix it?? NO of course not. I left it. Ribbit now has personality! Here is a pic of Ribbit:
See how his little arms don't sit flat against his body?? That's because they are upside down LOL!

Oh never mind I think I just figured it out! Here are the Legwarmies. Can you tell I messed up and fudged it????
My knitting news for today is that I just bought my first skein of yarn EVER online! I saw this pattern for Ribbit and knew I had to make him. I really wanted to try some new things and some new yarn. So I bought the Spud & Chloe Sweater yarn at Jimmy Beans Wool. The yarn is beautiful. After I ordered I received a coupon with my receipt for free shipping on my next order if I order by 4/30/10. I'll definitely be finding something else I need! The yarn was $12.40 and the shipping was $4.00. My total order was $16.40. Okay I don't usually spend that much on yarn, but it was kind of fun! I can't wait to check it out!
