Many of you have been showing interest in my whittling, like how i do it and such.
Well i was going to post picture of them, but I have .... missplaced them. I have my darning needle though!


Anyhoo if u want to see some *really* amazing hand-made crochet cooks, Jimbo's Front Porch is perfect, he also has a tutorial how he makes his. I do mine differently but yeah, wanted to show you his site :)

Spinning stuff!

tada! Tea Time, i hand dyed some merino with tea and spun singles, and plyed it with some natural merino singles.

And the purple is my first silk! My Yarn Sister taught me how to spin with silk :D Thank you so much ^-^

School isn't to bad, Programming is still wait and see, Web Design is a bit...nurr lots of people >.< and Forensics should be awesome! We are going to do some fiber identifying :P And i told Helen (our AWESOME science teacher) how i am a spinner and knitter, and she is a sewer! So she likes crafty, fibery stuff and asked me to bring in some of my work :P yay!Sounds like knitting in her class should be OK ;)

ummm what else
Ah Updated my ravelry profile a bit, has pictures and yarn now :)

Ta Ta for now
Hugs and knisses (kisses+knit)

organization (with pictures soon)

THIS YEAR i will attempt to become more organized!
I have a diary, like the mini kind with dates, and a couple of lines if u have something on...
I have Ravelry
I have diabetes log book stuff
and i want to get a personal diary! And aim to write in it every day, but no biggy if i dont! This way i can write you know, good day or not or get rid of any of that excess angst i cant throw at people at school, and my pain levels! The main point of the diary is to have a record of pain stuff, like where and when and how much. etc.
I also hope that writing stuff down more will help with my whole brain-to-paper problems. I might also do a couple of my own essays on a subject i have chosen, because i struggle with them, so if i practice with stuff i like ill get better..


Knittery stuff.Well more spinning. i have been playing with silk and teh spinning wheel, many many thanks to Happy Spider for the lesson :D I have also done a couple of dyeing experiments, dyeing fleece with tea was fun, then ply the tea-singles with pure white singles, yum!

I still haven't found my drop spindle! *sad face* i miss it, its "somewhere in the garage!", doom.

Slowly knitting the shawl still..i forget how to spell it. I now have an infinite amount fo new projects i want to do thanks to ravelry :P But yeah knitting is slow. I made dad a cup cozy for x-mas, because he forget about his drinks a lot. And i improvised a dice holder for Morgan, but i don't have any ribbon for the drawstring still...Ah well, almost 100% :P

I have been playing with crochet, as you may know, still learning how to count stitches and identify one stitch and things, but im enjoying it. Not such a great online crochet community ive found, but i did stumble across a really awesome blog, crochet of distinction. Mindy uses beautiful Irish crochet, combined with knotting and tatting to create AMAZING jewlery! Very inspiring, fine work. Of course now i want to try tatting out :P Looks pretty.

Also been whittling! I whittled a few crochet hooks! Very happy with them, very easy to do :P I also made a darning needle for fun. I am looking for a good save whittleing knife but its been proving difficult.
