First post :)

So I thought I would make a knitting blog so I can blab about my knitting and not bore all of my non-knitting friends on livejournal, although all my non-knitting friends are still welcome here as well if they really care about the day-to-day details of what I am making...Richelle's fiance referred to me as the Mistress of Knitting, and I got a kick out of it, so that's who I am now!

I recently finished up all the stuff for Kelly's baby shower and (after whipping up a pair of fingerless gloves for Kimmy) started working on stuff for me again, at least until the baby is here!

I finished off my mismatched purple striped socks, using yarn leftover from other socks.

I pulled out my CableNet socks and actually managed to finish the first one.

Unfortunately my hands are not up to the task of intricate little cables on size 0 needles these days, with all the typing I do by day and all the knitting I do by night. (It's not easy being the Mistress of Knitting.) So the CableNet socks went back into hibernation. I have been working on them on and off (mostly off) for just over a year now and I have a single sock done and about two inches of the second sock...Will they ever be finished? They are really quite awesome, but they are also a huge pain, literally.

So I decided to start on a pair of Very Tall Socks, also from Knitty. You know I love my kneesocks, and these are way-over-the-knee-socks :) I'm using some KnitPicks Wool of the Andes and Cascade 200 that I have left over from baby stuff. I have to buy more of the Wool of the Andes, but the color I need is out of stock until March 25, so I may have to start yet another project in the meantime, depending on how long what I have left lasts me.

And I'm looking forward to a big sale at Cozy Cabin coming up next week so I can stock up on more Cascade 220 for longies and soakers for my niece or nephew!
