I'm almost done with my sock! I would have it finished by now but things keep happening. 1) I forgot my sock chart when I went to the knit night at my LYS on Thursday so I didn't know how many stitches I was supposed to end up with after the toe decreases. 2) We went to Oshkosh because they were having a scholarship recognition night and I brought it along to work on in the car. I forgot what kind of decreases I was supposed to do on the instep and I forgot the sock chart again. x.x 3) I forgot the 4th needle when I was going to work on it on the way to supper yesterday. It's very frustrating but I think I have it all figured out now.

20 stitches after the toe decreases
k1, slip 1, k1, psso, knit to last 3 sts, k2tog k1
and i found my 4th needle.

I can probably finish it today except that my dad is having me do all these chores (mowing the lawn etc) and he is going to pay me $25 to go towards horse camp next year so that will take a while plus I have homework. But it doesn't take too long to do toe decreases on 44 stitches.

New Breyer Stuff!

This post is not knitting related but I just got a new Breyer horse and a breyer bridle. For my birthday in March I got a $25 wild horse feathers gift card. I finally spent it last week and they came today.

I was so mad on Friday because I was going to get up at 6:00 am to watch Knitty Gritty since we just got cable, but when my alarm clock went off I just turned it off and went straight back to sleep and woke up at 8:30. Then I went back to sleep and slept until 11:30 which caught me up on sleep that I lost getting up at 6:00 am to watch Uncommon Threads the day before. And we forgot to tape Knitty Gritty too. :(

Felted the Cell Phone Cozy!

I felted the cell phone cozy the other day but I felted it one more time yesterday since I could still see the stitches. It came out the perfect size!

Post-Felting Dimensions:
Height: 4.5"
Width: 3"
Height with flap open: 6.5"

My sister almost forgot it in the car when we took her to college today! My mom sewed on the button.
I turned the heel on my Cascade Fixation ankle sock.

I have this sweater that I bought from Kohls last year and it is like a knit sweater and it has a pocket but the sewing around the pocket that holds it on keeps like undoing itself so it is breaking I guess. Then I saw the Wicked sweater pattern http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/3974522 and I was like I could make myself a sweater like the one I bought and it wouldn't break. So I will probably make the Wicked sweater sometime in the near future with KP Swish Superwash since the Artyarns Supermerino yarn is pretty expensive if I'm going to need like 8 balls of it for a sweater.
