Pictures, What Pictures?

September 27, 2007

Yes, a good Blog has Pictures, lots and lots of Pictures.

Where are mine?

In my camera.

Remember the good ol’ days when you had an instant viable excuse, ‘My film has not come back from the printers yet,’?

Soon – I will be Flickr-fied soon and share my unimpressive pictures.

Unimpressive, because until recently (a few months ago), it never occurred to me that I should document my passion. And so, there are few pictures of Finished Projects because once they are finished, they are usually gifted – I get so excited – and out of my nimble little hands.

But no worries, no, not a one. It is the Holiday Season, I have several WIPs and have even finished a few. My stash seems to be maintaining its meager figure (thanks YarnSwaps!) so it might be suitable for viewing.

Now, to deal with that PhotoShop….

Slow and steady – doesn’t do too bad!

September 26, 2007

Recently my husband had the unique opportunity to watch me knit. Unique because rarely does the man have a moment of rest and I do not seem to get more than 30 minutes of knitting in a day.

We were with the kids at the playground, and I remembered my knitting. My husband sat watching me for roughly ten minutes. At first, it was just plain annoying – I am not used to someone hovering and watching and this is for Me. Then, I felt somewhat flattered – he seemed to admire my handi-work. But my ego was squished abruptly. He opened his mouth. Read the rest of this entry ?

So, where’s my stash?

September 22, 2007

To date, I have cataloged my needles and yarn. But I realize, my yarn is quickly deminishing as I have joined several YarnSwaps, 1 KAL and 1 KAG ~gasp! I feel the need to SHOP! So shop I did. I hit my favorite online shop and ordered a set of 16″ bamboo circulars and 24 skiens of some chunky, wintery type yarn for gifting.

From there I agonized over the purchase of a blocking board. To date, most of my pieces required little to no blocking, if blocking had been necessary, I simply used a few thirsty towels and my desk-top. Why would I need a blocking board? I finally started some lace work and I enjoy it, thirsty towels are not gonna cut it for lace. I found a great deal at JoAnns.com, Sew EZ blocking board, usually selling for Read the rest of this entry ?

Impatient? Me? ~ nah ~

September 20, 2007

I journeyed out to the mail box today,* giddy with anticipation during the 20+ minute ride. I have been awaiting several items for the past month: a new set of 120cm bamboo circulars (generic but feel and work the same as Takumi), 10 balls of merino/cashmere blend yarn (a foreign label), and my edition of InterweaveKnits Fall 2007.

*My home is out in the local economy, my mailbox is in Little America, 20+ minutes away

I drive through the parking structure where my mailbox is located. I drive slowly and safely because my children are in the car. If they were not, I would be squealing – but carefully – through the parking Read the rest of this entry ?

Hi! Hello? Anyone? Howz about a YarnSwap?

September 19, 2007

So, I know I just started this blogamajog and it is meant for me to catalog my knit stuff and meet knitters but – … where is my traffic? Nah, I know it takes awhile. I guess I will have to do the self-promotion thing and get myself out there if I want to meet knitters.

How about a YarnSwap? There we go! A great way to get the blog-juices flowing! Send me an email at destiknit AT myway DOT com if you are interested.

Still no IK *SOB*

Organize, Minimize, Socialize with a tad of Conspiracy Theory

September 16, 2007

‘Not one to jump on the proverbial bandwagon, this serves as an experiment for me… a place to organize and document my passions. If you have happened upon my pages, I extend my warm wishes and I do hope you come back again.’ ~Destiknit first Post


So, maybe I should retract my first entry because I have been waiting to get into Ravelry for awhile now.

Not because it is the cool knitter thing to do but simply for the following reason: I would love to be a dummy and use their site to organize my passion. Yes fellow knitters, I am a lazy bean – but selectively so. Alas, waiting has proven to be too much for me and so, I must take the sheep by the horns and organize here at WordPress. (Thank you WordPress)

So I have thought of my goals here at WordPress and the first is to organize, for certain. In organizing, I hope to minimize my stash and, by documenting it all here, I hope to socialize with fellow knitters – guys and gals, novice and experienced.
