So, I’ve been sick.


This means staying in and knitting.

Lots of knitting.

And sewing.

Lots of sewing.

I finished the set of thrum mittens for the girl at work.
I love thrumming.
Oh, and the hairy arms are my husband’s. FYI.

I finished the first of my Trekking XXL Cabled Socks.
I really enjoyed the water colour effect of this yarn.
Not so crazy about the feel of it though.
Hopefully it’ll get softer after it’s been washed.

And I cast and am 3/4 done the first of the Spinning Bunny Jaywalker Socks.
This yarn is gorgeous.
It feels great and it has this almost satin-type sheen to it.

I am kicking some serious knitting ass.

As for sewing, I’ve made a bunch of the needle bags for Wendy.

I’ve also been trying to come up with a simple and inexpensive version of this nylon knit bag.

These are some of the fabrics I’m experimenting with.
I like the brown/pink/coffee bean one.

Did I mention I have two orders for the Cabbage Rose Swirl blankets I made at Christmas?

$150 each.



About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.
