...omg, i'm so excited that the Second Season has FINALLY started, i LOVE this show!! If you've not checked it out and are into fashion (not that i am!!...lol)...but it's neat watching these designers sweat it out each week trying to finish their apparel...and, OH The DRAMA!!
But in more serious matters...i finished my socks but they are too big once worn for 5 minutes. I've washed them once in the bathroom sink and tried some hot water hoping for a bit of shrinkage, and got NONE. I'm so afraid to accidentally shrink them too much and then i'll be all sad. I'm goingt o try once more to shrink them a bit in the sink and it that doesn't work, i'm seriously thinking about frogging them and reknitting them smaller...GASP!!!
In other knitting news...i've made a lovely, simple, no pattern scarf for the "Mitten Basket" at church. It's made with Wool-Ease in "frost" that was accidentally bought by my Aunt & Cousin for my cousin's Queen Sized bed blanket that i crocheted for a year before taking up knitting...the blanket was in "white" and they accidentally bought two skeins of "frost" too. So i'm using the "frost" mixed with this really pale pink yarn that Kat sent to me...all of the Kat yarn was earmarked for lap blankets for a yearly project in Indiana but now it's all destined for hats, scarves & mittens for the "Mitten Basket" at church here...so still going to charity, Thanks Kat!! ;) Anywhoooo, the scarf is just a simple K2 P2 on size 15 needles and it's turned out so pretty. I then made one of those silly box shaped hats with the tassels on the corners to go with it, but it was even too big for my fat head so i frogged it this morning and will reknit it in a while. Mine's not the same as the picture, it's got a K2 P2 ribbing and then St st so that it matches the scarf. And now i'm off to find a better mitten pattern so it can have mittens too...
I also have another simple hat on 16" circs...hell if i remember where i got the pattern...i'll try to find it later for ya.
Pics are on hold because i grabbed the wrong USB cable out of the box before the rest went back to storage...i grabbed the printer cable and not the one for the camera, like a dope!! DOH!! I'll go fish for it in storage after church tomorrow!!
