Bad Blogger Sorry

I’m sorry that I’ve been such a bad, infrequent blogger. I really do try to get posts out, but with school in the way,,,you know.

So news! I’ve decided to participate in the Summer of Socks 08 this year. I think that it’ll be fun, so I decided to do it! I’m not participating in the most pairs/vacation pics, but I will be posting some cool pics to the blog. I’m planning on finishing my two that I have, and starting my first “two at a time” socks for the SOS’08. I think that that is a good way to start, do you?

If you don’t know, I also sew. I’m getting back into it, and decided that I wanted to do a quilt. But, we don’t have any batting at my house, so I decided to get creative. I’m going to do a denim quilt! What I’m going to do is take all of the denim/old pants (I have about 12 that I have collected over the years) and make a back/front of a quilt. Then I’m going to use some fabric, and make another side.  I guess it will kinda be like a patchwork quilt, but I’m not going to use batting because of the denim back.  I think that it will be very warm and awesome!

More knitting news… I knit a Huggable HedgeHog (<- ravelry link)!  She’s ADORABLE! I love her so much.  Her name is Ruby . She doesn’t have any eyes or a nose yet, but I’ll embodier some on soon.  Also, I’m almost done with a sock.  And I turned a heel on another.  Plain vanilla socks are just so BORING.  I need to do a patterned one- and soon.  I was thinking either the Monkey or the Jaywalker from Knitty.  What do you think?

I’m soo glad that school is ending soon.  Exam week is the first week in June and then it’s SUMMER time.  Plus knitting time.  Which totally rocks.  Honestly?  I really can’t wait.  Plus, my birthday is June 28th, so that’s awesome as well!  I’m also glad to get away from the stresses of school.  Plus, that means MORE knitting time!  It’s a totally great package.

I’m thinking of changing the theme of the blog.  Suggestions?

Okay, well that’s all for today!  Have a great weekend, everyone!
