Actually completed a Ravelympics Sweater!

This is my first time participating in the Ravelympics on Ravelry and it certainly was a challenge! I thought I picked a simple straightforward pattern but it was tough to finish it between 8pm CST on February 12th and midnight tonight, February 28th. I followed the pattern but it came out a bit short -- however, I'm happy that I got it finished. I may pick up some stitches and add some length to it, but I'm not sure yet. Here's the pictures taken tonight before blocking.


I know the front view is a bit fuzzy but I figure I'll get better pictures on my day off on Tuesday.  

Almost forgot to say that I was on Team IntSweMoDo Mavens. This is the team badge that I designed for us to use:
I'll upload my "medal" after I've officially received it.

I'm a bad, bad blogger...

Merry Christmas!!!

I know I should update this more often and I think I will be doing so very soon. For my friends, I've added a calendar at the bottom of the page to show when I'm working and when I'm available. You'll know when to expect me at the knitting groups. LOL

WOW! Look what I got in the Wee Tiny Sock Swap!

This is the first swap I've ever taken part in and I'm embarassed to say that I only sent a sock to my person but received this from the person that had my name!

She sent a cute card with a sheep lying in a field of flowers along with the wee tiny sock made of a purple Jojoland Melody yarn AND 15 stitch markers, 2 sets of dpns for sock knitting, and a Burt's Bees lip balm in Champagne (not pictured because I already used it and forgot to put it in the picture. LOL

Anyway, I want to thank Amanda of Dragonfly Lagoon for her generosity!

Wee Tiny Socks are done!

I think it's very cute. :) This could be addicting. LOL

Wee Tiny Socks!

I'm taking part in my first swap of Wee Tiny Socks over at Yarn Miracle! I've only completed 2 pair of socks but I've already made one wee tiny sock and already started the second. I got my match yesterday and I'll be sending my finished sock to Tina over at What She Shovels. I'll post a picture after I finish the sock.

What is this place?

Hi! I've been thinking about blogging to document the crafting that I've started doing as a way to pass the time between job interviews. :( I've been knitting and crocheting and will probably drag out the sewing machine soon.
