Yarn or Life? How about a little of both!

Posting my reflections on life for all the world to see….is this really a good idea?  Well I guess I’ll find out.  I’m a crazy college student with a passion for kids and knitting, I procrastinate all the time and can’t keep my life straight.  I always feel like I’m about to come undone.  That’s why I picked the title for my new blog.  Yarn is always unraveling and getting tangled up when I take my knitting places and that’s what my life is like.  Constantly coming undone and ending up in knots.  It takes some time and effort to fix a tangled ball of yarn but it can be done and I hope I can untangle my life before too long.  I hope you’ll follow me on my journey as I figure out where this big ball of life is headed!

My Current Knitting projects

November 1, 2010 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized)

Today I finished my second pair of socks.  They are from a tied cable pattern from a How-To-Knit socks book.  I used a multi-color sport weight yarn and size 3 long circular needles. (I’ll update with brands and colorways tomorrow)  They turned out really well, they actually fit my feet and are comfortable to wear.  I’m excited to be able to use something I made.  I also started a new project tonight.  I’m using extra yarn from the socks to make a shopping bag (link to ravelry pattern) using size 10 addi turbos 100cm.  I’m using the Magic Loop method for this bag and I also used Magic Loop on the socks.  I’m hoping the bag works out well because I think it’s a great alternative to using plastic.  I’ll keep you up to date on all my latest knitting experiments.
