New First Entry!

Okay, so this isn't as easy as I thought that it would be. I wrote an entry that stayed up for over a week or two and I really thought that it was boring to read! I think that I was a bit rigid in my writting. So as I do with my knitting, I ripped back (or pressed delete) and I'm starting over. Boy I wish that I could do that with everything! So here is my new trial.

I'll start with a knitting story. I decided to start knitting my christmas presents in october. I joined a knitting Cal-Kal ( http://holidaykalcal.blogspot.com/ ). I made up a list that was suitable for the amount of time that I had. Andreas' mom thought me how to knit, so I though that it would be nice to knit something for her. I looked around at lots of patterns and I decided to go with Fuzzy Feet felted slippers ( http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTfuzzyfeet.html ). Actually, I decided to knit a pair for both his parents, his sister and her boyfriend (who just moved to Scotland). They are a pretty quick knit, but it honestly takes me about a week per slipper because I don't have that much time to knit. So I started by just knitting one. I started with his mom's because if I hadn't finished anything else, at least I would have hers done.

I knit it exactly as the pattern showed and once I felted it, the cuff was very wobbly and almost frilly. This wasn't going to suit his father's and I didn't really like them. So I started over. That one will be used as my nephew's first Christmas stocking.



The next time, I made the cuff higher so that it would keep their ankles warm. I also ribbed them. I felted both of them, and measured them. 9 1/2" . Damn! When I checked the foot size conversion site, it showed that for her size foot, it would need to be 10". On top of it, I want her to be able to wear warm socks with it.



So I've decided to keep them for myself or give them to someone else who might have size 6 or 6 1/2 feet. I bought more yarn in a beautiful purple because I don't know if I'm just tired of seeing that shade of red on my needles and I'll start hers over. At least I've knit almost one whole sock for his father and the cuff for the second sock.

I don't know if I'll make it for Christmas with the two other pairs. I'm making a pair of mitts for my sister out of a pretty wool. The cuffs are basket weave stitch. Very original. I just finished a scarf for my mom.

I hope that she likes it 'cause I don't really know how she feels about handmade knits. It'll be my first christmas knitting gifts for people and you don't know how people are going to react. On the Yarn Thing Podcast this week, she was talking about how some knitters on ravelry have said that they've found certain people to be really rude about gifts that they've received. One woman had knit socks for her grandchildren and her daughter in-law threw them in the garbage because "they don't wear handmades". Wow! That's really insulting. She said that she took them back out of the garbage. I don't think anyone will do that to me though. I hope not.

Talking about Ravelry...I was invited this week! I just hope that it doesn't suck up too much of my time on the computer. I actually told myself that i needed to focus on writting a blog that I'm proud to share before i allow myself to indulge in beautiful ravelry fun. If you haven't been, check it out www.ravelry.com . It's for knitters and crocheters. I actually tried to sit down and go through the tour of the website with Andreas so that he would see exactly what I'm sooo excited about. I really thought that he would get it, but he just stared pretty blankly at the screen. He was working on a film shoot all day and he was lying in bed reading when I plopped the computer on his lap, and he doesn't knit, not even a little... so...I guess his reaction was to be expected.

Okay so, thanks for reading. I'm going to check out the website!
