What's On the Table

I am so excited. I bought a new camera. WOOT! The first pic ever is of the camera cozy I am making for it.

Also, welcome to a new blog theme, what's on the table. I have a massive sewing table and often friends are over and are intrigued at what's on the table, AKA what am I working on. So now that I am all camera capable I will take the odd photo and show everyone what's happening chez B.

Edited to add finished pic.... The monster head may be a tad high but, that's ok. It makes me smile.

More Socks

What will I do when I run out of a backlog of pics?! Currently on the needles are, plain 3x1 rib socks with L&V Rainforest wool, my STR club socks (though I don't know if I can claim a chain of crochet cast on as on the needles) and a Chicken Viking Hat... which may be turning into a grown up hat. Oh and of course the long neglected Fassette vest, some day I'll get back to that, it's beautiful.

These are Jaywalkers done in Austermann Step, they were for Mom's birthday last week. She says they fit perfectly.

An evening at work...

No one at work can read this... I knit and listened to podcasts ALL night.. the lime and violet rainforest sock is waiting for a kitchenered toe (if I had a needle it would be done.) The one and only advantage to working weekends is how quiet the shifts can be. I think I needed this down time.

Found out last night the funding on the BIG PROJECT is delayed, this removed a whole lot of stress but also was a bit of a let down. So I kinda took the day off fibre wise, surfed some amazing inspirational sites... maybe I'll be back at in with a vengance next week. I really have to find the time to do some stuff from my imagination. Though I spend so much time doing made to order stuff that when I get that all done I'm kinda spent.

me me me.. that's where I've been all day, in my head... that's ok sometimes but wow... I can't do this often, it's not always a happy friendly place in there!

People say I'm a dreamer....

I would say go do this little quiz, it's amazingly spot on. And I know.... I'm not the only one.

These are my Monkey Socks, design by Cookie wool by Apple Laine, Apple Pie called Grape Harvest. The wool is so soft a squooshy, but the socks are a bit small at the top for me. That's ok cuz I think these are going to be gifted although I won't tell who right now!

I'm up to my eyeballs in bridesmaid's dresses. I haven't drafted in ages so this is a challenge. Pics when I finally get that camera.
