re Veronica

Who is your boyfriend from Veronica Mars?(with pictures)

Your boyfriend from Veronica Mars is Logan Echolls. He is hot and he knows it. His exgirlfriend Lilly was killed and Veronica was shot at while dating him. If you feel like taking a risk he could be the guy for you. However, I believe he is still in love with Veronica.

Its not easy being green...........

Ok, I've gotta confess, green's not really my thing.
So I've felt pretty uninspired by project spectrum this month.
I mean, I like outdoors green - but there isnt a whole lot of that going on here with winter so fast approaching.
And green vegetables and greeen tea.
But project-wise... not so much.
To be honest, there hasn't been much happening in projects of any colour.
Its been a super busy month - on the 1st of May I started a new job - hurrah =)
Since then I have continued working every second weekend in my old job too, so there hasn't been much knitting time =S
Mostly I've been working on my mohair tank, and the patchwork blanky - since its easy to pick up, do a few squares then put down again.
The good news re project spectrum, though, is that my fingers are itching for some
june blue yarn! =)
more on that soon

ooh, and the has been TV! =)
Right now I'm watching Firefly. I really like it, although I don't love it like it were Buffy or Angel. Or Veronica Mars =D
Ooh, Veronica is one cool tough chick!
I'm about 15 episodes into the 2nd season, and I just can't stop (well, I'm out of episodes just for now hehe)
I wonder if there's a quiz out there somewhere to tell me whether Logan or Duncan is my perfect Veronica boy.....

Sunday lovely Sunday

Outside today it is dull and rainy, which means inside it is a perfect day for knitting!
So, my plans for my 'today is the perfect Sunday' are the mohair tank, a vat of potato and leek soup, roast pork mmmmm, and Breakfast at Tiffany's =)
Yep, I'm starting a new project - a mohair tank knit from a free pattern in a Jo Sharp brochure I was recently given =)
I'm tres excited as this is the perfect little project for me to get a feel for knitting with mohair so that I can move on to the "to dye for" sweater in "Stitch n Bitch".
hope your Sunday is perfect too =)

Introducing...... Scotty

woooooooooooooooh FOs!!!!!

He's my last FO for April's PS:

my fave ps project yet I think hehe

and introducing Scotty Knitty Kitty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =)


Scotty is a gift for my sister, and is inspired by her fave football player:

Scotty was knit from one of Jess Hutch's fab patterns, Kate, which has featured in Knitty

Scotty got right into the spirit of project spectrum, showing off some green on the bookshelf:

Then, he shared the pleasures of some green tea with his friend Bunny:

or so they would have me believe, but later I wasn't so sure....


Now that Scotty is finished I have done a little work on Vicki's feathers scarf - its just a simple 7mm needle, CO 20 and garter stitch until you run out of yarn kind of scarf that Vicki had started, but needed frogging and finishing =)

Tomorrow I'm off to the bead store to pick up some materials for earrings inspired by free beaded safety pin jewelry patterns I found online =) yay

besos =)

Inspired by Bertie...

You are an outcast learning to cope and understand the ways of those around you. Your blunt honesty and intellectual capacity cause others to mistake you for egotistical...when really, you ARE just smarter than everyone else.

Take the Star Trek Quiz

Hey, just because I said that "to convince an alien of my honest intent, I would use my Infallible Logic (and/or breasts) hehe

Which Star Trek: TNG character are you?

You are Data. You are adorable and intelligent (albeit artificially). You want to be human and you spend much time learning the nuances of the human character. Your study and, sometimes your obliviousness, give you a valuable insight into problems that no one else knows how to approach.
Take this quiz!

pleased to meet you....

Well, my list of projects keeps growing so I thought I'd introduce you to some of them =)

Couch throw
This guy is from the free Lincraft create your own project panels, like Veronica.
There's some really cute projects there, including knit ponchos, scarves, totes and throws, as well as a crochet bikini and even non-yarn related projects.
The couch throw (must get a snappier name, I think hehe)is going to be cream and blue and brown...
Here's the yarn all ready to go:

This one is more recent, showing a leeeetle bit of progress (and the super knitting bag my mum got for me!) =)

This guy is pretty slow going - there are 150 stitches in the row so each row takes a while =S
The pattern says 200 rows, but I think I might do more to make it more square.

Patchwork blanky also comes from a free project sheet, from Spotlight.
It doesnt appear on the website, but is made up of 48 garter stitch squares, in various shades and textures of the same colour.
I'm going blue with this one too - I'm loving blue and chocolate at the moment.

The winter blues mittens and scarf will be a matching set, in cream with pale blue and purple - probably stripes =)

I have a few other projects up my sleeve... including Velveteen Rabbits (knit a rabbit at spotlight) and plastic canvas embroidered handbag =)... but I'm trying not to get too excited hehe

I guess I should get to it =)
