house warming

I've moved my blog. it was on a whim but i decided that i haven't been blogging enough lately to bother paying for a blog anymore, and i really like blogger more anyway so, here i am.

To celebrate my move, i have a brand new finished object. My Central Park Hoodie! I wore it all over yesterday and i LOVE it!! I finished it on Friday night and brought it straight to work to wear in the office. I keep forgetting about the whole "seam allowance" thing and i've realized that I need to knit the next larger size or add on an additional 2-3 stitches on each side to allow for the half inch that I lose every time I seam something. But I finally did a good job with the finishing and it came out really nice for once. I feel like a real knitter now!

As for my Petticoat Socks, I don't think that they're going to work out for me. I've played with the pattern as much I figure I can without changing the whole look of the pattern and it's still to tight. Although, I just now thought of a way to make it work...so I guess it's back to the drawing board again with these. They're just too pretty to give up on. I also have a shawl to knit for me, a new pair of socks for my mom per her request, and a hat for my friend Matt who's a rock-in-roll god. Lead singer of the band Days Unknown, and completely sweet, not to mention hot and SINGLE ladies!! Check out his band.
