I just bound off the back of my first sweater!
It ended up about an inch longer than I intended but hopefully everything'll turn out ok. I'll just have to make the front the same length and still try to get my short rows in the right place. :P

It's done!!

I finished the extra large SSS clapotis! :D Still about 2/3 of the ends left to weave in but other than that's it's done and ready to go. Woohoo!

I just finished the 5th repeat of Budding Lace 2. :) I'm also nearly through the regular straigt reps on the SSS clap.

I finally started my Swallowtail Shawl today from the Fall '06 Interweave Knits.

I'm using KnitPicks Shadows merino in Redwood on KnitPicks 24" US3 circs. So far I have Budding Lace 1 and two reps of Budding Lace 2 done. :)

Sale yarn, the crazy blankie, and more

Alrighty, on with the pictures! I haven't posted any since I got my new camera. Remember, everything is clickable for larger versions. :)

Here's the obnoxiously 80's entrelac blankie. I think it shall henceforth be dubbed "the electric blankie." Caron Simply Soft Brites on US10 Denises.

This is my latest Clapotis. It's going to be a bit larger than the pattern. Caron Simply Soft Shadows on US8 Addi Turbos.

This is my latest haul. Picked this stuff up the same day of the hand incident so I haven't been able to do anything with it yet. :( It's just been sitting at my mom's waiting so I picked it up today. Left to right: Aurora 8 (3 colors), RYC Cashcotton, SWTC Tofutsies (for a pair of lacy gloves), and Cherry Tree Hill Possum Lace. Everything except the Tofutsies was 50% off!
Also found out that my fav semi-LYS now carries a whole bunch of new lace yarns! So exciting because they had only one kind before. Now there's at least 5 or 6 I can think of offhand. One is... MALABRIGO! Malabrigo LACE. *faints* It was soooo nice and soft. (And sooo not on sale. :P)

And just for the heck of it, here's me recently. Check out how long my hair is getting. It's about time it started growing again. I'm excited. :D

And now I think I'll go knit some more.

I did manage to find my missing WIPs, thankfully. Located the sweater, Malabrigo clap, and Lady E all hiding together.

Catastrophe... Hooray... and a smaller catastrophe!

Yes, I have meen MIA for quite some time now. :( Unintentional, I assure you. I broke my hand!! Broke two metacarpals in my left hand (pointer and middle) all the way up by my thumb! Don't ask. :P
So I was in a horrible ER splint for a week and a half or so, a full cast for two weeks, then half that cast as a splint for another three weeks. *whew* I finally got clearance to startusing it again this past Friday. I'm not 100% yet but I'm doing much better. (We'll pretend it didn't keep me up hurting last night and out of class this morning. :P)
So I can finally knit again! Hooray! I went to grab my Malabrigo Clapotis I started forever ago and enjoy the squishy soft goodness. But no! The bag I thought it was is only contains my failed first attempt where I ran out of yarn too fast on one side and the ball for the center piece. That's ok, I'll work on my sweater. Nooo! Sweater is MIA too! *@%^ #$*%!!

For now I'm off to investigate some stuff for my other project I'm restarting... Project Make Tiny Bedroom Liveable.
Then I'm going to pick up the yarn I bought the day of the hand-breaking. More on that later. :)
