BREAKING NEWS UPDATE

WE BRING YOU LIVE TO THE APARTMENT OF ONE KANA J. WINKIE WITH THIS LATE BREAKING UPDATE ON HER PROGRESS.

Paper.

NOT DONE

Socks, however:
Noro RPMs one down!


Noro RPMs one down!Noro RPMs one down!

I went a bit camera-happy because this is a seriously pretty sock, but it's dark which means poor lighting which means my camera's focus is not very happy at all, at all.

Noro RPMs one down!
Noro RPMs one down!


CLEARLY AS YOU CAN SEE, HER PRIORITIES ARE WELL AND TRULY CAREFULLY CONSIDERED THIS LATE IN THE GAME.
WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY PLANNED ENTERTAINMENT.

P.S. Yes, hopefully it's a bit more clear in these photos, but RPMs is a very spiraly pattern. Which made it go SO quickly.. you just knit around and around and around and around in a circle until you're done. I think if I were to do these again I'd do many more repeats along the cuff to make them longer.

I'm just cruising by here and saw socks and felt I must comment. The RPM pattern is so fun! I knit it up earlier this year in some Apple Laine yarn I got as a gift. I haven't gotten my hands on Noro sock yarn yet, but that color looks fabulous. :)

Hiya!
The RPMs truly are a great pattern, I can understand why everyone raves about them now - there is nothing better then a pattern you can memorize on the first repeat and then just cruise from then on.

The noro sock yarn is really interesting, it has the same texture as typical noro yarn (a bit startchy and itchy) and very thick and thin (dangerously thin!) but I hear it'll soften up a bit after some wear and a wash.

It is, however, absolutely gooorgeous and I think any fault in the yarn I could forgive as long as I get pretty socks out of it, hee!

I hear there is supposed to be a Silk Garden sock yarn later this year. I'm looking forward to seeing that. (I still want to get my hands on some of the Kureyon sock though!)

Yes, I love how easy the pattern is to memorize. I'm thinking of using it for some little hand warmers I'm going to knit up soon.

Gorgeous!
I'm also "tons of projects already on needles and art to be done and but I wanna knit" lady lately.
I whipped up a really pretty necklace of leaves and i cord from this gorgeous bamboo and cotton combo on Saturday. I made my first washcloth (a cute dragonfly pattern from ravelry for my mum). I'm also knitting little rat stuffies like it's going outta style. ;)

*cough* is there any way you could send me the tiger pattern you used for Kana?
I want to do a little weeona (or even alter it to make a kitty) but am not sure I can handle the difficulty level yet, thus, I don't want to spend money on the pattern just to not be able to make it. Was she done on circulars? If so, I'm boned since I am all antsy about using those. I'm just getting into simple double point stuff (see above necklace with i-cords... heh). I also use the double points to do i-cord tails for m' ratty stuffies.

Are you on raverly.com at all?
I'm weeona on there and you ought to friend me if you're there so I can stare at your stash and queue and favorites. :)

I need to join a LJ knitting group, too. Though seriously, I'm already outta control just by myself.

OHhhhhh... and I also learned how to crochet recently! Mostly just to make agurami (sp!?) animals. I've done an octopus, a penguin for my mum, a buncha jellyfish (so cute with chained tentacles!), a little round rattie for my purse zipper pull, and I use the crochet to make much nicer ears for my little knit rats. :)

You should see all my yarn. And needles. And crochet hooks.
Oh goodness.

Also, not sure you saw this in your earlier posts but I got some DELICIOUS Katetastic cotton yarn that almost looks handpainted to make you something. I'm not sure what. Does Aussieland ever get cool enough to justify scarves? Maybe knit with turkey basters so it's airy and not too heavy? Cotton doesn't tend to be too warm and overpowering, so I hope I can make something you'll use. :)

I eventually am making myself a purse out of similar cotton that's blue and white variegated. I just need to stop putting other project off or ahead of it. Still haven't finished the baby cable scarf I'm doing for my roomie. It's too much thought and not knitting up fast enough. I'm impatient. ;) It's just gorgeous though... I'm hoping to hunker down, pull it out of hibernation and get cracking and finish it.

*hugs*

Re: Gorgeous!
Hee! You really need to start photographing these things and sharing! I want to seeeee!

Yes! I am on Ravelry as Kanawinkie, just friended you, wooo! Now get to posting projects missy! *grins*

The tiger doll is super simple and is all done on straight needles actually! But you can adapt it to DPNs (too small to be on circular needles, and I have yet to attempt the magic loop method...) which means less seaming in the end. I'll certainly share the pattern with you.

I'm so jealous! I simply can not get crochet down at all, I've tried to teach it to myself, I even sat down with my Aunt for a while and had her try to teach me but it just doesn't "click" the way knitting did, blast! I looove jellyfish! Again with the photos woman, I want to seeee! *snickers*

Daww you sweetheart! It is currently VERY chilly here as we approach mid-winter, a hat or scarf would be wooonderful!
Washcloths are another awesome gift, I recently did a dishcloth exchange on Ravelry and the facecloth I got from that has been put to good use!

And I hear ya about being impatient, that's one of the big reasons why I like socks, they're a quick project and sooo useful! I keep putting off the bigger projects I -should- be working on, doh!

*squeeeezes!*

I think someone needs a jellyfish for their purse or bag zipper pull, then!

I took to crochet pretty quickly. The first hour or so was frustrating badness then something clicked and I got it. I broke all my small plastic hooks within a week (groan) but now that I broke down and got aluminum ones I think I'll be set. :) I promise to photograph my projects!

One of the recent rattums is on my flickr account here:

I've done a hedgehog, too, with an acrylic face and fun fur spiky body!
So cute! But man do I HATE knitting with fun fur. It's just a pain in the keister!

Keep an eye on my ravelry, I promise to post pics as soon as I can. :)

Re: Gorgeous!
Oh, and FYI, this rat is pre-crochet ears. So they aren't great. :/
