So many things, so little time!

So hey there, Internet Land! I've been rolling yarn for the past FOREVER and working on a sock. Soo many people have gotten me yarn over Christmas, my stash box floweth over. Seriously. I have no idea what to do with a lot of this, as it's bulky and I usually work with fingering weight. o__o;

Sweetie's sister got me a pretty bag and a ton of yarn! Gio got me a pound of Caron yarn. . . which I might make a sweater with, not quite sure. . . and members of my family got me various novelty yarns.

I also have a ton of plushie work to do. . .

OH! I opened my copy of World of Knitted Toys! A lot of the things are worked on straight needles, which isn't really my cup o'tea (I hate seams) but if it's yours then you should most likely buy it. The pattern variety is great (It's not just twelve. . . . it's 47) and he simply assembly of the dolls gives me a boost of creativity. I can definitely see myself knitting up the snake, or the turtle, or the clown fish. . . or going with my own flow and turning the tiger into a lion, or the basic human pattern into a version of me! I think this is a great book overall, especially if you're just starting into knit amigurumi. I should probably also sneak in the fact that if you think about the pattern, the knit pieces can be converted to fabric pieces, and the dolls sewn together, hehe. So sneaky!

So long for now, I think it's time to bind off my sock aberration and start rolling up that pound of yarn!

School's Out!

I'm very excited for winter break, partly because it means no school. Hooray! In other news, I've had the strage urge to knit socks, so, I'm going ot make a pair! Double hooray! After this pair, I'm going to work on a set for my sweetie, hehe.

In other news, Let's Knit Dinosaurs. Why? Because they're COOL. This site can hook you up, totally, hehe.

Enjoy winter break! And for all of you that got out early because you're in college, boo. For all of you who are too old to have a "winter break," so sorry. You can have a winter break in spirit!

That's the sound made by my scholastic entry: White sheepie! I'm also going to make a black sheepie soon, too! Above is visible my dear friend Liza hugging the alleged sheepie. (Don't tell her, but she's getting one for graduation, hehe!)

This little baby is soooo cute, and huggable! I'm seriously considering adding them to the etsy shop when it goes lie in early april. I'm gunna be making a crappyload, yay! Stay tuned for more updates.
On the docket are two sock patterns and the whimsie I'm currently working on. I think I'll post them up here, since they'll be sooo cute! The one I want to do next I have the yarn for (it was gifed, I have no idea of the contents or brand or anything, but it's super thin. . .). And it has fish! Oh the insanity.

Hope you are all doing well on the internet, keeping alive, at least. Work hard on those Christmas Presents!

Oh, What I have discovered!

Anti-Craft! I feel like I've been missing a great part of me, and that I've just found it out there on the interweb! I seriously think that some of these patterns are total genius, hehe!
Teratoma doll! As a note, those who aren't old enough to know what a tertoma is should probably not visit this site.

This amazing web zine is so cool. . . It's a bit punky, bit goth, bit wiccan, with hilarity in every issue! Here's a spider baby cap that could probably be easily modded to fish us non-babies:

All in all, it's a great site with creative knits, but there are some problems. I wish the archive had pictures, and that some of the patterns came with more pictures/better quality ones. . . but hey, genius and practicality can't always get along, can they?

New Knitty!

Everytime knitty comes out, it's like Christmas for me! I always hae to spend ages looking at the different patterns.

This season, I'm excited to see Sally the Eco Fairy and this Dodecahedron.

Sometimes, I wish that knitty would come out less often, so I would have more time to make all the patterns. . . but most times, I wish a new knitty came out everyday!

Ah, if all my knitting wishes could come true. . . it would be a weird world indeed.

Updates, oh joy!

For all of you who follow mochimochiland, some exciting stuff has been going on, including a nicenew footjoining tutorial, and some additions to their shop. Sheep, haystack. . . bathtub!? Eh!? Oh well, they're cute!

As for what's on my plate, well, I'll give some hints later when I have my camera, but I WILL say that it's a hat, I'm creating the pattern, it's cute, and I'm making more than one :D Guess, internet people, I dare you!

Um. . .

Well, it turns out all our internet prayers couldn't help my Grandmother. . . She passed away Friday, at around 9 PM.

I'm probably going to take the week off from school. . . meaning I'll have time to knit and stuff.

I made this doll for my baby cousin Ava that's coming in
Sooo cute. It's one of a few I've been wanting to make. . .
Check out this Knit Flower.
Or this one.
I'm not in my normal happy mood. . . sorry. I think I'll feel better later.
