I am not in the mood to knit, for now. I kinda am, but kinda not. What do I do? Do I knit? Or not? I probably will end up knitting, so it isn't much of a choice. Send me an email at knittingajATgmailDOTcom for ideas on what to knit! I need a bigger stash of UFO's people! This is not normal. Please! You may be saving a knitter's life. I will probably have a later post, for my knitting...

Wow. I was just reading Yarn Harlot and now I feel like a slacker. The ideas were fantastic. Any knitters out there, close your eyes. I mean it. I am ashamed. I feel stupid, silly, dumb. Seriously, knitters CLOSE THE EYES. I... didn't.... knit... my... Christmas... gifts.... I am a failure. Instead, I made certificates for my friends and family.

Here are a couple of ideas for last minute gifts for knitters:

Calendar with yarn as pictures, needles, etc.
Certificate saying "Best Knitter Ever"
Coupons for time

Failing stinks. Don't forget it. Do not remember this after Christmas. Next Christmas will be different. I guarantee it.

Your yarn demoiselle has been doing nothing of knitting. :( The yarn demoiselle is in hibernation at the moment.

I just wanted to say that with the Fire Socks, I finished the sock and started the second.


Your yarn demoiselle is going to go to a softball game and play. I love soccer (notice I did not say sports or soccer and softball). I am pretty sure you get the point. Softball lovers, look away. Baseball players? It is your choice. I don't like softball. I know this is obvious, but softball is nothing like soccer. I thought I would enjoy it. But I don't. I would almost say I (look away again...) hate softball.
Now to knitting news. Your yarn demoiselle has not had the urgency to take photos yet. I almost want to keep it a surprise. I have a bunch of squares done. I am going to take photos tomorrow.
Your yarn demoiselle is off to a thing she .... strongly dislikes. I am trying not to have you ... different mindset people to look away again. Leave a comment if like my word choice. Or ... don't exactly love my word choice. Or if you feel the need to comment!

Busily Knitting

Hello, friends,
I have been so busy! School has ended and I have not finished Fire Socks. You could say they are an UGH! (ugh knitting version, worst knitting could be, has something very wrong with the piece.) They are too itchy... Right now I am working on a bag.... But I should tell you what I finished. I was working on a hat and another hat (look at the links, they show everything.) Right now I am working on a bag. That's what your yarn demoiselle is up to.

I am stuck in my room right now, I dashed for freedom. From the kids.

Here's ChaCha's chewing of the needles.

First, we (me and Mom) went to a yarn shop a knitter recommended. (I don't remember the name, so sorry!) They were very nice and my mom bought the square double-points metal 0's she's been talking about and hated them.

Then I went to softball practice and CHACHA (one of my dogs, the other is Snowflake. I'll show you pics soon.) CHEWED TWO OF MY DOUBLE-POINT NEEDLES! My Fire Sock ones. We shall pause for a moment for grief for your yarn demoiselle. I can't knit on my fire socks until TOMORROW! That is hopefully when my mom will get new ones. I'll have to knit on my Leftover yarn scarf.

I'll live. Hopefully.

Mother Nature, please don't fool us again. We want a spring like Florida. I want to have no snow on the ground. Please.

Fire Socks!

Your yarn demoiselle has been knitting furiously for a couple of months to produce (part) of this!
Fire Socks 3 13 11 005

Fire Socks 3 13 11 001

I'll go knit some more now.

I'm going through a growth spurt. So as soon as I finish it, it'll probably be to small.

Either way I should knit as fast as I possibly can.

New And Improved Knitting Blog

My last blog was Knitting Forever, but that was horrible! I like the name. Whenever I talk about knitting, I will try to say, "Your yarn demoiselle (young girl in French) is..." Cool, right? I hope so!
Cheers to a great blog,
Your Yarn Demoiselle
