Busy Summer days

Wow it's been quite a bit since I posted. I guess the heat is getting to me. I have hardly touched any knitting this past week. It's just been too hot and sticky around here. Plus I haven't been home that much anyway.

We were out and about almost every day last week. On one of our outings Not-the-Momma took us out to lunch. He was going to go to a movie with us too, but he wasn't feeling very well. So I took the kids to the mall. We walked around a bit and window shopped. They saw all kinds of stuff and I saw a Mah Jong game that I would love to get my hands on. Then we saw Cars. They loved it. It was really funny. Afterwards we stopped in at A.C. Moore. I just browsed the yarn sections. I did find a couple of posters. One was a Vincent van Gogh "Starry Night", and the other an Alice in Wonderland. And we stopped in another little shop and they found some toys. So it was a pretty good day for everyone.

For those of you who followed the link from my last post, I actually started one.

These things are going to be huge. I didn't figure they would be this big, but I guess they will hold more. They are worked flat until you get to the foot and then joined in the round.

And for those of you who like to see the innards of knitted things, here's the back.

These will be lined so if it gets a little sloppy, the mistakes will be hidden. I was even going around the house humming Christmas carols. It's safe to say the things I knit tend to go to my head a little.

That's what I think of when I look at this.

It is an owl pocket necklace. I made it for my mother-in-law for her Ipod Nano. It is filet crochet. And I thought it was more original than a regular Ipod necklace. It fits really well too.

I also tried the no-sew method of miters that Kay of Mason-Dixon suggested.

I think I may have found what I want to make everyone for Christmas this year. I will only put this link in for you to go look at later. I never said it was a sane idea. I know it's still June, but I make for over 30 people. You think I can do it?

Spoiler : Beware

If you haven't watched the last episode of Doctor Who and don't want to know what happened yet, don't read on.

I am utterly ticked off. The new Doctor that I have come to love on this show, was "killed off" last night. I truly liked all that Christopher Eccleston brought to this character. I will miss him saying "Fantastic!".

And I can't believe who they got to replace him. David Tennant, who played Barty Crouch, Jr. in The Goblet of Fire. I just don't think he's got what it takes to replace Eccleston. But I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog.

I have picked out all the colors I am using for my miter blanket and did 10 squares so far.

The rest will be different combinations of these colors. I already planned out which colors the others will be, so all I have to do is knit them up.

I also have all the colors for my fishie blanket.

This is also why my miter blanket isn't so bright. After all these brightly colored fish, I needed a break from strong colors.

Hi, my name is Micky, and I join KALs.

I just can't help myself. I have joined yet another KAL. The Mason Dixon KAL. The book has so many great projects in it to do. I have finished one and started another.

First we have a dishcloth. I really had fun making this and will make more once I get some more colors. I just had this on hand and went ahead and used it.

And then I started some miters. I really have been wanting to make these for some time, but thought it would be more complicated. I made one and just kept going. I may be working on these for a while.

A sheep that got the flock out of here

Yes, one of the flock has gone on a vacation of sorts. She has decided to turn off her blog and take a break from it for now. It's Annie of The Knitty Gritty blog.

(the button is just a reminder, not a link)

Her's was one of the blogs I made sure I read every day. Even if there wasn't an updated post, I always found something to look at or read. Her work is beautiful and I always enjoyed her writings.

Hopefully she will come back soon. We'll miss you Annie!
