Oh yeah, one other thing -

I have succumbed to the Twitter flu. Blame the boyfriend, he signed me up. :)

If you'd like to follow me, I am @kraftykmay

news and progress

I finally got a sale in my Etsy shop yesterday!!!
*happy dance*

It's all ready to go out except that I ran out of tape halfway through. But that's why the lovely people at the post office sell tape, right?

I'm so happy.

As for the sweater, the crocheting part is done. I am right now sewing the pieces together.

I like the pattern. But I apparently have gauge issues. I went DOWN a hook size from the pattern and my pieces still do NOT even remotely fit into the confines of the blocking measurements. But it fits(so far). It might be a little baggy, but it'll do the job.

Pictures probably taken tomorrow, posted sometime after that....

Worth 2 thousand words

Ok, as promised, PICTURES!

This is the first sleeve.

This is the back:

I am about 1/4 of the way through the second sleeve. Once that's done, it gets assembled!

Chugga chugga....

Ok, blogger's being weird for new posts...whatever...

So the back for the Aqua Aloha is done, and I'm about halfway through the first sleeve. I'm thinking it'll be done by the end of the week, and then I will chain on for something else. What, I'm not sure, but something.

Pictures to come soon...

oh. right.

It's really been that long, huh?

My only excuse is that I'm in a summer class (finally going back to school!), and it's eating up most of my free time, what with getting up way too early after working till midnight, and then the homework...

BUT the good news is that I'm about halfway through the back of the aqua aloha sweater, and my class is over at the end of the month, so I'll have my crafting time back, not to mention my SLEEP. :)
