So I forgot I had a blog on this site. Oh memory of mine you play such tricks on me.

So I've decided that it's about time I started posting some of my knitting & crocheting patterns.

2 inch diameter Christmas ball ornament with removable hanger top
CO 5 sts and join in the round.
1. M1 in every stitch.
2. M1 in every stitch.
3. K row
4. *K1, M1* repeat to end
5. K row
Knit 12 rows
18. *k1, k2tog* repeat to end (20 sts)

Insert 2" diameter christmas ball (with hanger top off) into tube so that the "stem" comes out of the hole at the cast on.

Pull yarn through the 5 sts tightening and finish. Put hanger top back on ball and add ribbon.

I haven't posted on here in ages, ah the fun of being a narco.
Well the house is coming along thanks to my new livingroom window;
and holding Dh's birthday party. The livingroom is almost tidy. I have to clean off my computer desk again and sort through all the junk I tossed on it from the rest of the room.
My god I'm a pack rat.
I also have built my triangular loom and have almost completed my first piece. A shawl for myself. I just have to finish tightening the bottom up.Here's some close ups:
Gorgeous isn't it. I have learned one very important thing about weaving on this loom. Don't use flat yarn if you are obsessive like I am. The main reason it's taking so long is because I'm actually going through it and untwisting any little flaw. Next time I'm using plain old plied yarn, in fact I have the yarn and my next one is a gift for someone.
Well I'm going back to it now.
