Craft swaps are fun. Harry Potter is fantastic.

A HP-themed craft swap made my heart skip a beat. I sent my end of the swap to my_morning_song a few days ago. I don't know if she got it yet, but I'm getting impatient and really want to post pictures. :-)

First, Nathan Fillion's new show Drive premiered last night and it rocks like nobody's business. I hope this show makes him a star because God knows he deserves the fame.
(And did I mention Amy Acker is his wife?)

Onto the yarnsCollapse )

Blocking Panic [Mar. 27th, 2007|05:51 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

I've never blocked one of my knits before, mostly because I haven't knit anything that needs to be blocked. The closest I've done is sprayed some water on my Mason-Dixon dishtowels to shape them.
Today, I have to block a fair-isle hat to get the colorwork to be even. I'm sitting while it soaks in the bathroom sink. It took me a few minutes to work up the courage to put this great hat into the soapy water. I was thinking, what if I was doing it wrong? I didn't have enough yarn to make another one, so I was really worried about something going wrong. Its a bit like my first felted project. As I watched the wool purse spin around in the washing machine, I had this feeling of dread like I had done something horribly wrong and my bag would come out looking like some bizzare creature. I'm sure my hat will be fine after blocking, but I'm still a newbie at this and the perfectionist in me is worried about making a mistake.

The family went to San Fransisco last week to visit my uncle and I had to check out Imagiknits. It's a gorgeous place and twice the size of my LYS. I picked up lots of lovely yarn, including some Malabrigo Chunky and two skeins of handpainted laceweight, one of which is destined to become Eunny Jang's Print o' the Wave Stole. Pictures will be forthcoming, but first I have to get the digital camera back from my dad.

Also, I've always talked about coloring my hair, but was too worried (I worry too much) to actually do it. Well, I've decided to bite the bullet and get it dyed red on Thursday. Like, Kirsten-Dunst-in-Spiderman red. It'll only be semi-permanent, but I might re-do it for a little Mary Jane-ish look for seeing the Spidey 3 movie.

Potter Scarf [Feb. 17th, 2007|09:58 am]

I finally finished a good-looking HP scarf for myself! I'm planning to wear it for the movie and book release, but I'm not sure if I can wear a double sided wool scarf in the middle of the summer....

I do love the muggle knitting patternsCollapse )

I've been to the Boston Science Museum twice in as many years. How did I miss this?

Because I should be writing a book essay... [Nov. 18th, 2006|06:51 pm]
[Current Music |Good News - Something Corporate]

...but I am endlessly confused and bored by the Odyssey.

Instead we take a look into the Box o' Knits under my desk.

Fun Fact: While I was writing this, one of the keys broke off of my laptop.

Funner Fact: It says 'Fn' and I have no idea what it does. I've pressed it about 20 times, but nothing is happening.
