daisies and green

Just wanted to drop in and show off my new Daisy Stitch handwarmers (modeled in true QVC fashion by Mom) and my new backyard! Aren’t they lovely? The pattern for the handwarmers can be found here!

I have arrived safely in Ohio, and it’s great! I haven’t had a lot of time to post because my mom and I are running around shopping and getting settled, but as soon as I have a good chunk, I’m going to start my new blog on WordPress! I am really excited. :oD

Today I finally finished the socks I started during Spring Break. They turned out really nice! I just wish I had a set of sock blockers..


I really like the subtle color changes of this yarn. It was one of those things I bought on an impulse off of Ebay, and I’m quite pleased. Yarn Treehouse is the brand, and they have a lot more colorways and weights available on their site. Also, the pattern I used for these socks is called Monkey, and it can be found here.

Since I had such a long time between classes and finals this year, I’ve had a really difficult time focusing on studying. This, of course, just means more knitting..

Hi there!

I finished Leah’s gloves today! Aren’t they great? I really think she’s going to love them. The pattern I used to make them can be found here. I know they look totally different in the pattern picture, but I just used the basic parts of the pattern for making gloves in one color. Now that I’ve done it once, maybe I’ll make a pair for myself someday.

I know exactly what the leftovers are destined to be. :o) Also, the pair of socks I’m working on should be finished either tonight or tomorrow, and after that I’ll have nothing left to distract me but packing (ecch) and planning new projects for the summer (yay).

So, it’s been a really long time since I blogged last. The end of my senior capstone project and the beginning of finals left me with little to no free time. However, now that the year is really ending, I’m going to have a lot more time to do things like knit and bake..and write about it. :o) As a side note, this summer I intend to move my blog over to WordPress. I’ll post more about that later when it actually happens. So if you’re reading this and you’re not a close friend of mine or my mom (which I highly doubt at this point), keep that in mind. It’s going to be incredible.

In any case, I made a cake. Actually, I made three cakes. I think this picture pretty much sums up the deliciousness contained therein.


The cakes were “Tres Leche” cakes (that means “three milks” in Spanish!), and if you’re looking for the recipe, you can find it here from Food Network. Go Alton Brown!

More knitting to come soon! I’m currently working on a pair of gloves for Leah, and they’re nearly finished. :oD
