a little further...

I've been knitting and crocheting like crazy lately, but I think the only thing I can really report as a major accomplishment is the Blue Pi Shawl of Doom!!! IT'S FINALLY DONE!!!! 1,111 yards (I weighed it!) which, after adding in a few other projects, brings me up to 5785.5 yards, or approx. 3.28 miles. Pictures soon.

Under Cover

Or at least covered. The "Under Cover of Midnight Hooded Cowl" by Julie Turjoman in Katia Peru brings me up to 2.47 miles. That's 4,342 yards!!!

Faulty Technition

That would be me. But I've been very busy in the meantime. Sorry, no finished objects to really speak of, but I have landed myself in the greatest internship a yarn crafter could ask for. I'm spending the summer on a small sheep farm in Virginia where their main business is dying and selling yarn. Its actually a little more complicated than that, but you can check that out here, here, and here. But I can add 235 yards to the mix now, because I've already knit a sample hat, and I'm working on a sample sock, and that's not all I've been doing. There's a lot more coming. But you'll have to wait a little longer.

2 Whole Miles...

So I finally got around to doing that substantial math I've been promising, and it took me a good few hours. Finding yardages, finished objects, and all kinds of stuff. But now, I present to you in list form my two whole miles. If some of the numbers from last week have changed, I'd count these as closer to real. I only try. I'm not perfect ;)

bikini bunny- 120 yards
pdq hat- 108 yards
Muh-hurr and Muh-hey (twin bunnies)- 240 yards together
sweater bag- 765 yards
fetchings- 82 yards
repo gloves- 105 yards
jimmy's hat- 100 yards
jimmy's matching scarf- 440 yards
purple house beret- 185 yards
grey house beret- 185 yards
arachne mits- 223 yards
half pipe hat- 426.5 yards
jimmy's beer gloves- 136 yards
cabled mug cozy- 50 yards
casey's man hat- 125 yards
scarfy v1.0- 244 yards

totaling to 3534.5 yards, or 2.0088 miles.

I need to knit a lot faster if I want to get to the moon on my own.

Ok, I did some math on what I could find and here's what I got. I tried to get pretty close, but most of these numbers are pretty round.

Cabled Mug Cozy- 50 yards
Jimmy's Hat- 200 yards
Jimmy's Matching Scarf- 340 yards
Casey's Man Hat- 220 yards
Sweater Bag- 765 yards
Fetchings- 82 yards

Thats a total of 1657 yards. That is .94 miles.

Go me!!

Though that is a pretty sad list of FOs. Lets fix that....

More Stuff

I found some more pictures of things that I finished. Like Hubby's Half Pipe hat, which can be found in Debbie Stoller's Son of Stitch n Bitch...
...And some bunnies I've crocheted.

And a special treat later on, hopefully today, a personal account of how close I am to the moon!!

Oh, Hey There!

Oh hey blog! There you are! I've been wondering what happened to you!! Oh, right, I've been going crazy with all kinda of crazy things! But I finally have pictures to show everyone!! Yay!! In reverse order, from what I have, the first thing is my Repo! Gloves. They are a little long, and I may consider knitting another pair, a little better fitted to my short arms. But over all I really enjoy them. I think I might wear them more if they fit better. The next thing I have to show you is the Pi Shawl. It's not done, but I'm working on the edging, and I think I'm almost done. I have also since accomplished some other minor projects, but I'll post them later. Now begins the mass chaos that becomes the Winter Ravelympics. This year, I think I'll compete in events other than the WIPS-Dancing that I normally would compete in. I've had several new requests that need to be accomplished soon. I'll be back soon! I promise!!
