I had a knitting day with [ profile] brightshadowsky, and it was a load of fun. You can read about it in my regular LJ. So I'm not going to waste to much time here on that subject. But it was fun, and I can't wait to do it again!

She helped me figure out the sleeves on a T I had started last year, so now I can finish it. I haven't done so yet, because I'll have to edge it with crochet, and I don't know the stitch needed yet. I'll need Trina's help with it, and I know I won't see her for a few days yet, so instead....
Instead! I have been working on the turtleneck sweater. I had some trouble understanding the pattern, but [ profile] brightshadowsky got me over the roughest spot, which I am grateful for. Since I got home, I've been doing nothing but knitting (well, almost nothing), and I'm now done with the back!!! I had to call her once today to get some help, because the pattern was intent on confusing me, but other then that, I figured it out on my own. Well, sort of. I enlisted Dustin's help, or rather, his logic thinking, and between the two of us, it got worked out. I'm so pleased! I haven't started on the front yet, because I have been too busy catching up on LJ, but I will most likely do that tomorrow (it's getting close to bedtime for me),and then it shouldn't take me long at all to finish that. Then I'll just have to put it together and then figure out how to pick up stitches. May have to go to an LYS for that though, since I've never done that before.

*squeels with delight* Check out my new icon!!! [ profile] brightshadowsky just made it for me *snugs [ profile] brightshadowsky* Thank you!!!!! It's awesome and cool and just what I wanted!!!!! *does happy dance* And she's going to make me another one too, as soon as I send the picture to her. Weeeee!!! ^_^

Uhm..I'm sure there was more I was going to write, but now I've plum forgotten! Oh wait! We went and got a sweater to frog at Salvie's, and now I've got a ton of wool/roving in my closet, just begging to be made into a felted bag ^_^. I've got so many ideas for that yarn that I'm not sure what exactly will happen to it. But I've got another project in the planning. Like there aren't enough already, right ^_~. But it's all good. I'll finally get a bag for my knitting projects. No more plastic bags!

*sighs* Ohhh, to be able to do all the things that come to mind when browsing a LYS ^_^. Some day!

How's your schedule looking these days???? If you've got time, any chance of helping me out with my sweater, I'm kind of stuck with it. Also, if Dustin's schedule keeps being 40 hours, maybe I could swing driving up to Newport at some point, for hands on help, if you're ok with that???? Thanks ^_^

Yay, went and exchanged the needles today. They didn't really ask questions or made any fuss about it at all. Which is great ^_^. So what am I doing on here, instead of knitting that new shawl you wonder? I just got home and needed a break lol. Did some knitting with [ profile] elfie_chan earlier, which was fun. I think we both are looking forward to having a craft/sewing day some time in the near future (near being relative, of course). It's fun to knit with someone else. And no, Dustin doesn't count, because he doesn't knit lol

*blinks* I just got an e-mail from someone I said I'd make a shawl for (well, technically the shawl'll be for her daughter). I have less than 2 weeks to finish it! EEP!!!! I'd better get hustling! *scurries off to knit like a fiend*
