Well, I have started the Starsky and I have chosen Knitpicks Sierra in Bud. I love bright colors and I chose this color because in the fall and winter it can get pretty gray and black and I like to add some color to my wardrobe so that it is not that boring. Well, I think I went to bright. I am still knitting the sweater and I hope once it is complete it won't be too, too bright.

Here is the ball I wound up while on the 32 busline, for those who don't know that is the bus that runs through the city into Georgetown, all the way up to Chevy Chase. I had to take this bus to work and it was a good thing I did because it took me a while to wind 1 ball. This is not a really clear picture. You might be able to see it more when I show my WIP. I am almost at the three inches of rib and than the real fun will start.

I have been practicing the cable pattern and I think I have it, you have to really concentrate though. I think my lunch break is over, I should get back to who pays me so that I can buy that Knitpicks set of needles and the Scarf in Style book.

See yah!

Knitting Community


I finally feel confident as a knitter to join knitalongs and post questions/opinions after two years of knitting. It's amazing, I have been knitting for awhile now and I have seen numerous projects in progress/completed and I felt like I would probably never get to that level. Now I feel like I belong just like everyone else. I think I have joined three knitalongs this month and am waiting to join one more when it is open. I hope I am not taking on too much, but I don't think so, my life revolves around pressure and stress - I am a urban kntrix, I will survive!!!

Knitters rock on!!

Joy and Pain


Washington weather is so fickle....but today it is just gorgeous outside. It feels so good, I ate lunch outside today. So you know what that meant, knitting time!!!! it felt good to enjoy the weather without sweating and wondering if I may need a homeless person give me mouth to mouth because I have fallin out in 115 degree weather. Also, Knitty summer surprise has been release - all of this for me.


Okay, so i am enjoying the weather and knitting and I realize I will need one more skein to finish the shrug, so I have to stop knitting so that I have something to do one the bus - bummer... I can see the end so clearly.....and yet no yarn. I have to finish the shrug before my yarn comes for starsky. I can't wait to start on it. Any day now. Knit Pick Gods do you hear me?!?!

I know, I know, I have a lot to learn.

The Shrug Continues

Drama, drama, drama!!! If only I had enough time and energy to put my journery through life in this little box. One day I will write a book/movie....but for now i'll blog.

Well that should explain why I have not been here in a while (even though no one reads this).

Any who, I am almost finished knitting the circular shrug, my first real project. I am not excluding the other items I knitted, but this is just special to me. At any rate, I will upload pictures soon of the shrug on vacation and progress.

I also have two new projects in mind. Starsky and a shaw.

YES!!!! look out intermediate and advance knitters ---- here comes the DOMIKNITRIX!!!
