What is on my sticks.

KNITTING UPDATE!!!!!!
I have finished my green, super thick socks! I ran out of yarn half way through the second sock so I unraveled the toe of the first sock to use for the second sock, making them both even. I found some bare bulky weight and used that for the toe's.
So, the are green with super cute white toe's!!!

I just started a basic pair of socks this weekend using some yarn I had hand spun. I dyed the roving for this yarn in Bright pink, dark lavender, burgundy, and a reddish dark pink. When I was spinning it I suspected it would be a self striping yarn. Boy was I right!!! I looks amazing if I must say so my self! LOL
Each strip is about a quarter of an inch wide with color transitions in between each solid color. And it is WAY TO MUCH FUN TO KNIT!!!!!

I am currently working on the candle flame shawl in alpaca cloud, tide pool. That yarn is SO yummy!!!

I go to a knitting circle on Saturday after my puppy is done with his classes. I also go to a friends house on Thursdays for some knitting fun and a couple of my friends go too.

My bff is a knitter too ( I talked her into it. LOL!!! ) She calls me a hard core knitter =) which I guess is true.

I am also a spinner and I have a ashford kiwi that I LOVE to death. I also love to dye yarn and roving, I recently dye some yarn that I spun and it terned out amazing, hopefully I will get some pics of it up soon.

So thats what I am doing knitting wise at the moment!

Hi Allie! It was so wonderful to come across your page! I love the fact that you are such a great knitter at only 15. My mom started me knitting when I was 4 and I have to say it has been the best "gift" anyone has ever given me! The pictures of your puppy are so very cute! We have been going through the "puppy" thing here at our house as well. My daughter's Alaskan Malamute (an unusual all-white one!) just turned a year old but still acts like a puppy in so many ways! The fact that you are in a youth symphony is wonderful as well. My son who is a violinist was a member of the Portland Youth Philharmonic. He has also performed with jazz violinist Doug Cameron. Oh! and my daughter played cello when she was five.... we still have her first little cello - a 1/4 size.... I am a new member of this knitting site and have yet to develop my page... seeing yours has inspired me to go do just that! I look forward to see what other wonderful things you finish knitting! Happy Knitting!!!
