Knitting Depression

Ok so I finished the Santa Cruz hat today. Now I'm depressed, I have nothing else to knit and I don't have any money to buy yarn. But I guess its a good thing since I do need to focus on school again, well that is until I get more yarn...maybe my mom will buy me some. After all I need to knit for Christmas gifts. Or maybe I should just get a job, yeah I think I should just do that LOL. Anyway I'm kinda behind on the schoolwork still so I need to stop getting online, but let me tell ya Ravelry is totally addicting.

Santa Cruz Hat

I started the Santa Cruz Hat from Magknits on Saturday. I really like it. From what I have read on Ravelry though it comes out small. So I'm doing the Worsted version and I cast on the amount of stitches for the Sport hat. I guess I'll find out if it is to big, but I'm making if for my grandmother and so I think it will be fine. I really like the pattern though. I've been on the look out for lace style hats since I finished Foliage. My next project, I want to make a lace shawl type pattern. I think it will be fun. I'm becoming more adventures in my knitting though I'm really excited. Oh I went to my first LYS the other day and I got some Misti International Cotton. Its a cotton silk blend, and it is so soft I love it. I found out that the LYS isn't as far away as I thought and they yarn isn't really more expensive then lovely Joanns. Besides when I start venturing into sweaters I want to have really nice yarn. So that was fun.
And I guess I should mention that I did get on Ravelry last Friday. It is so much fun! My name is luvbg89. I love looking at other people's patterns and all the different yarn. Well I guess I'm all caught up. Now its back to the books, I'm still really behind and it just never ends :(

Not Knitting

So the knitting has been basically non exsistent. Well actually I "grounded" my self from knitting. I packed it all up and put it in my closet. Now I would only go to such extreme measures because I was so behind in my school work. But now that it is getting back under control, I may be able to start knitting again. After all I need to start on some Christmas knitting soon.

On another note my invite for Ravelry will probably come tomorrow as there are only 184 people in front of me. I am so stinkin' excited!!

Oh and I finished the shawl-collared jacket except for I have to put buttons on it and then I will post a picture of it on here eventually.

Picture Post

Okay so its time for a picture update so be prepared for an obnoxious amount of pictures.

The finished project. Its not a very good picture, but I'm hoping to get a better picture soon.
I'm almost done with the shawl collared jacket from Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for Beginners. All thats left is to seem everything up! Be prepared for some more pictures later.

And on another note. I hate school right now I feel like I'm drowning and I don't have enough time to do all the things that I want/have to do. But right now I'm just plugging along and also looking for a job, because well I need money.
