Blue Ribbons, Purple Ribbons, Green Socks and more


Hello all. I finally went and picked up my stuff from the Florida State Fair. My Jewels Cardigan won Best in Show for knitting and First Place in the "sweaters with pattern by different colors" category. And my "Elton" purse took first place also - however I cannot remember what category that was in.
There's some other exciting things going on with my Jewels Cardigan but I'm not going to post about it until everything is all 100% settled.


The socks are done. Whew! I really did not like working on this pattern at all. Not that it was difficult or anything. I just did not enjoy them. Luckily she does :) The yarn was Reynolds Soft Sea Wool. Yay for another FO!

MIA, FO's, and CPaAGG

So I have been MIA on this thing for two months. I have tons of excuses but mostly it has been out of laziness. Do I really need this blog since I have Ravelry to keep up with everything? But, if you're not a member of Ravelry you cannot see my projects and such so I guess I'll keep this thing going for now.

Finished Objects!!

Yes I have actually finished a few things.

First off, Ber's Sidewinder socks are done! WOO HOO!!

These socks would not look so awesome if it wasn't for the beautiful Wollmeise yarn. It is my favorite yarn of all time.

I also completed some baby booties - one pair for a girl at work and another for Jen, the creator of CPaAGG on Ravelry.

The first ones were done in Regia sock yarn and the second were, of course, some more Wollmeise. Aren't they the cutest things ever?!?

So 2008 is off to a good start when it comes to finishing up projects.


The Completely Pointless and Arbitrary Group Group is a group on Ravelry that has been the center of my online life lately. If you are a Ravelry member and have a wicked sense of humor, I suggest joining in the fun.

Recently we had a Secret GroundhogBunny Swap (to celebrate a bunch of holidays at once) which was, of course, completely pointless and arbitrary. Pictures of my haul are located here. I'm too lazy to post them all on here too.

I'd like to thanks DreadPirateKel for the wonderful goodies and scary horrors that were included in the package.
