Getting Things Done

Thought I forgot about this blog, didn’t you?

I have a lot of projects that I’ve completed. Computer and life problems have prevented me from posting them online. But I will be posting them over the next few week. What can I say? I don’t have a job. So I have plenty of time to knit.

Finished Object - Monk's Travel Satchel

I admit it. I'm a bag junkie. I've been buying up those $1 bags in grocery stores not only for using groceries, but to also store knitting projects. I came across the Monk's Travel Satcheland immediately fell in love.

Of course, I saw all the blank space on it and went about customizing it.

Finished Object - Marley's Ghost

My first Marley's Ghost was sent to a friend, and I had to make one for me. I love this chain link pattern. I'm tempted when I become independently wealthy and can afford the wool to make some sort of chain mail shawl or vest.

Finished Object - An Abduction of Aliens

An Abduction of Aliens made for some of my friends.

Two great tastes that... wait... wha?

Vultures and knitting.

Yeah, those are two things you'd never think would go together.

Well, in Little Dee by Chris Baldwin, they do. Prime example - Vachel's comments on struggling for a sweater. Plus you have to love a guy who writes a sea shanty about knitting.

Finished Object - Wolfie

I finished one more project, a wolf based on the Husky in World of Knitted Toys.

I had the hardest time finding safety eyes. I didn't want to spend $5 in postage for a $0.69 part. But every major chain, and a few independent craft store I checked didn't have any. So I ended up having to mail order them anyway. But the wait was worth it. :)

Finished Object - Moose on the Loose

This Moose on the Loose is intended for a friend who collects moose. However he's so cute, I'm tempted to keep him for myself.
