About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

Catch up

The school year has literally crashed over me like a giant wave... Knitting has become scarce, other than once a week at knitting club.

But I have a couple projects that I have been finishing up. I am working on a stashbuster skinny scarf, which I leave over at my boyfriends apartment to work on when I am bored over there. I leave it there because him and his roommate smoke (not really ok with it, but I fe
el that nagging wont help him quit!) so everything I bring over ends up reeking of cigarettes. So I only bring simple crappy projects.

Heres some of the things I am working on, please excuse the crappy camera phone pics, my camera is at the bf's....

This is the Demiluna Shawl by Lhevinne Amor. It is my knitting club project, since the only time I get to work on it is during knitting club. I am excited to get it finished as I am on the border finally!

This is some yarn I am currently spinning. Spinning is a slow process for me since I never really have time and when I do, I would rather knit than spin. I am a self taught spinner, and while I know my yarn isn't perfect, I can still knit it up and it looks great!

I just did this project as a stash buster. I hate this yarn, and yet I have so much of it. It stretches out in a plain knit fabric so I decided to use this patter, which reminds me of crochet blanket stitch.

I also have a baby blanket going, which is almost done. ummmm...

Senior percussion recital is December 5th. 2 pm.
Be there. It will be awesome.
