Wicked is Wicked

It could probably use some blocking, and I totally put the short rows for my chest up too high, but other than that, I love it!

Pattern: Wicked from Zephyr Style
Yarn: Debbie Bliss, Cashmerino Aran, 8 balls I think
Modifications- I threw some short rows in to make room for my chest. Besides outting them in too high, it all looks good (as long as I wear a perky bra!)

She's Back from Crackbook.....

Sorry I haven't been around much- this facebook addiction is killing me!
That, and I was feeling bad that I hadn't replied to all my comments! So instead- I'll give y'all some love with some shoutouts. We all prefer to see our names in print, Don't we?

Yes, Les- I've been slacking... and thanks Karma for the support on the brotherly competition and the comments on wicked... so for Les, Brenda and Karma, here is my completed Wicked...

Well, not totally completed, still need to weave in all the ends, so at the moment, it's in a blob!

And yes, Dave (my brother) did kick my butt at our next game of Scrabble.... I bow down in awe of him.

Also, here are the socks in Regia Bamboo that I knit for my mom. She was wearing them on our scrapbook weekend. It was such a nice yarn to work with, but I'll be curious to see how they hold up.

And yesterday was the Knitter's Frolic here in Toronto. I went up with Leslie, and met Lisa, Corrie and Maya there. All I bought was a book for my mom, and two skeins of sock yarn. Everybody talks about Socks the Rock, so I thought I had better try it out. And the other is a Regia in "Canadian" colour, that was on sale.

And here's a photo of a lovely tulip. My aunt was here visiting from Ottawa the other night, and brought me some gorgeous yellow tulips for my apartment. So pretty!

As per Leslie's request.....

An update on wicked....
I think I'll knit another inch, then add the pocket. And I think I'll need a perkier bra to wear with it....

Also, I beat my brother at Scrabble today! This is a rare occasion, so I took a picture. I only beat him by one point, but it still counts! Haze is the word baby, 41 points! (and yes, my sister's name is Donna, our cousins call us the D-D-D's, pronounced duhduhduh's)


I've got nothing for you. My first week back from vacation has been a time management disaster. I went to Snb on Tuesday, but I don't remember working on anything... maybe I just chatted?

Anyway, my final paper for the semester is done (well, almost, it needs some final edits and a conclusion, but that can wait until tomorrow), so starting today, I have three weeks to knit,knit, knit guilt free (until microeconomics starts at the end of the month....)!

I want to finish wicked, finish my mom's bamboo socks, and start a brand new project. Deciding which one will be tough....
