Sorry, Nothing Crafty Today. Need Help.

Using every avenue I've got. Sorry this isn't an actual story or poem. We need help. Our car's broken down and we need to either fix it, or buy a new one in order to keep what little income we have.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, and thank you for everything.

Long Time No See

I know, I know, I suck at blogging apparently. That said, I have some catching up to do (Yes, I'm aware I still had stuff to catch up on before, but hey).

First off, I've done some sewing. A friend of mine needed new cushions for her seating area, and I was given the opportunity to make them for her. She just sent me pictures of the end result, and I have to say it's exiting to see it. She and her hubby are also happy with it, so yay.

A Novel Occurance

I know, I know. Bad blogger for not updating. I realize I'm way behind. At some point, I promise I'll catch up the best I can. For now, though, I want to get this up. Now, normally, I only blog about stuff I've made, but this time I'm sharing a few things my husband's made. Why? Because they're for sale and I thought some of you might be interested. After all, it's almost Valentine's Day, right? And who wouldn't love a new shiny from their significant other? 

So here goes:

beaded choker, 17” (not counting actual clasp) & matching earrings. $95

First Cardigan

As many of you know, I'm on Ravelry a lot. A group of us in the main thread I'm in, decided to do a sort of knit-a-long. Not for any specific pattern, mind you, but to help spur us toward making a sweater or cardigan within a certain amount of time. Since I hadn't made any such garments for myself (or anyone, for that matter) in years, I joined, with the help of one of my dear friends.

Anyway, I actually managed to finish it within the allotted time, and I have to say I'm quite pleased with it. Maybe even a little proud. I've never in my life made anything like this before, and definitely not with this nice a yarn. I'm hoping it won't be the last time, either.

I chose to make the February Lady sweater, thinking I'd get the most use out of it, since I tend to run a little on the warm side these days.

Some Selfish Knitting

Yarn:Roman Hills Gissing
Colors:Dance Dance #1 Jungle Boogie
Ravelry link:Hop on over!
I've done a lot of gift knitting this year, but some selfish projects as well. I'm showing these in no particular order.

I was gifted this yarn in the last swap I did on ravelry. I love the color, and the yarn's a dream to knit with. I had a few fits with the pattern, but I love the end result.

Old Song

This is getting to be an old song, huh? In all honesty, the fact that I let the blog go for so long and having so much to catch up on was a little daunting. It still is, as a matter of fact, and it didn't help matters that it made me procrastinate even more, making the gap that much bigger. I am here to try and rectify that, however, but we'll see how that fares.

I think, in order to make things a little easier for myself, I'll do groupings of things I've done. Like socks or shawls, for example.

Hats'll be up first, since I've made a few of them. There's one I'd love to share with you, but since it's a test knit, I'm not yet at liberty to do so.

Dusting Off And Starting Anew

*Dusts off and glances around* Well, I must say, things aren't looking too shabby for my having neglected this blog again. I do apologize, though. I keep meaning to post, and I keep forgetting! This makes for quite a bit of catching up to do, on my part, so I will stagger the posts a little, or they'd be way too long.

So let's start with the Dr Who swap I was in last year, since I can finally share all the goodies I made for my swapee.
