Stupendous! And stuff!

I just bought a flickr pro account, because suddenly I don’t have enough space for all my stuff. And then I get 10 free Moo cards, which I’ve ordered, and that made me realize that I need to upload some more attractive images to my flickr account, because it’s slim pickins. I think I would have gone pro sooner, had I realized just how cheap it is. I’ve had magazine subscriptions that cost more.

Anyway. I took some more photos. I present to you:

My first real lace project. The last row I knit needs to be re-done, because I’m short one stitch. But one stitch isn’t too bad, and I’m still motivated to continue to work on it.

Detail of the project. It’s Muir from Knitty, and I think it’s great for a first time real lace with real laceweight project.

A still unfinished frog hat for a friend. I forget the pattern, but it was originally a Totoro hat, only I changed it, and you can look it up on my Ravelry notebook, if you want.

A detail of the frog’s foot, at the end of the ties.

I also have loaded photos of the Super Secret project, but only onto Ravelry, so that I don’t ruin anyone’s surprise.

This weekend, I plan on doing much knitting, so that I can show progress on some of this come Monday. That will be awesome.

And lastly, here’s some sunshine for your weekend:

Young Me – Now Me

Kinda makes you want to do it and send one in, right? I know I do. I have a great picture of me in a sundress and giant heart-shaped sunglasses that I kind of want to replicate.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
