And now for something completely different....

Like knitting content!

I've been a busy bee the past couple of days!! I finished the dreaded 23 inches of BORING stockinette stitch on the back of my "accidentally on purpose" vest from stitch n' bitch nation. It looks marvelous (if I do say so myself). Getting to the point where you drop the stitches was glorious! It is such a wrong thing that feels so right. I was on the edge of my chair half worried that the entire thing would disintegrate in my hands but no! I was successful & here is my proof!

I'm working with Patton's Grace in cardinal red. Yes folks I love red knits!

I've also started on a skull illusion scarf for my sister. I made an alien illusion scarf for a cousin last year but I found a chart made by the lovely Ysolda on craftster & I knew Corrie would be all about the skulls!

Here is a pic of the stripes (sorry it's upside down- photobucket is being weird).

And one where you can see the skull and crossbones.

I'm going to do 2 skulls at each end and plain stripes in the middle. I'm using some wool ease. It's perfect for this stuff!

Etsy is still going well for us. We have made a few more sales (thanks Amy) and I've bought a couple of cute things. I got my super spiffy "craftastic" headband from the other cool craftin' Leah. She also included some of the "NEW" craftster buttons! I was ELATED! I really wanted some! The headband rocks! It may be the first of many! If you would like one you can visit her Craftastic shop!

Sandra got her Cyanotype shirt yesterday. I also sent her a CD. She loved them both (yay for happy friends/customers)! You can see her lookin' fly in it on her blog! What a supermodel in those glasses!

So now off to watch the real world. Yes folks I admit it I love watching people do stupid things for attention. It really amazes me.

Let me leave you with a much nicer thought.

Me & my two best friends- Laura & Tammy (wearing the kick ass shirt I made her). Tammy will be a Mommy to Coen in about a month and that thought amazes me. We have 10 years of photos just like this. I am one lucky girl.

You made that shirt? I was admiring it on myspace a while back!!
I did indeed. Well the actual tee is a maternity shirt from old navy but I did stencil it. I'm really proud of how it turned out!
I really love that shirt, Leah! I hope you don't mind if I borrow the idea for my sister in law, she's due in October. :)
Please do Amy!! Tammy loves it! She said it's the best thing she has gotten since her new baby ready boobies!! :)

I think I got the font from a website like "metal fonts" or "free metal fonts". If you have trouble finding it just let me know & I can email it to you.
I jsut finished knitting accidently on purpose this week. will be blocking it this weekend. i used red sinfonia cotton that I got at hobby lobby. btw, i'm in metro atlanta too.
Hi Haze! There should be a knitting badge for having the patience and the dilligence to knit up all that stockinette stitch. Oh well! I am working on it slowly. That little burst of reinforcement of finishing the back is long gone.

I will prevail!!
