Some Serious Structure

I've been wanting to make a corset for ages. This is going to be the foundation piece for my Harry Potter costume. Fun times.

As The Tumor Turns: Bettah Off At Last

As The Tumor Turns: Bettah Off At Last

I think all women should read this. I'm saddened by the thought that so many of us will recognize ourselves.

I'm back....

I'm actually putting up this picture, after two days with no shower and rain, and rain! It makes me laugh though....

On the Way

What's on the needles? Easy DOes It in Yarn Pirate... yummy, though I'm still not digging the striping. I prefer the heathered colours. I do like them none the less!

They Didn't Rock

Recognize this wool, FROGGED! Bummer. They were really uncomfortable. I only wore them a couple of hours and the ridges under my feet was not comfortable. So, I frogged them right away rather than torture myself. The wool is going to go away for a little time out. I love the colours when it's all skeined up like this. I wonder what the medium weight would look like in Hedera?

Socks That Rock

I finally finished my Socks That Rock kit, with mods of course. I don't think anyone is capable of just knitting a pattern are they? The details are: Socks that Rock Medium weight in the Monsoon colourway in the Inside Out pattern. I did not do the cables on the leg (I tried, they were too tight) so the leg is just a rib. Overall, I'm ok with them but not in love. I'm concerned that the rib on the bottom of the foot is going to be too textured. I did arse up the pattern a bit so they really aren't of a gift quality, so, I have some more socks.

Letting go of the kit mentality is hard for me. If the pattern or yarn don't sing my name, or the combination of the two, I need to ditch one or the other and just make what I like. Next time, I think....
