If it's fiber...

Hello!

If it's fiber I'll probably be sewing it, knitting it, crocheting it, cooking it, or reading it.  Those are my main outlets right now.  Who knows what else may pop up in time and become an obsession.

Yarn, Ho!
I made an emergency yarn road trip Monday to get yarn for the Kyoto top.  I drove to a yarn store in Raleigh that is really great.  Here is a picture of my yarn:
Goddess Yarn
I'm going to use the blue as the top, the pink as the sash and the green as the detail on the sash.  I may even put a little of the green at the end of the sleeves.  We'll see.
Blueberry, raspberry and kiwi!  Like a delicious tart!
I've already casted on and have about an inch and a half of the sash done.  This is my first big knitting project.  I've only done scarves and hats in the past. I'm so excited!
I've joined up with a knitalong to help support me through it. 
 
I am moving on the 31st so my posts may be a little irregular for a short time.  This knitting is what is keeping me sane during the whole process!

waiting
I'm still waiting for my yarn to come in.  It's driving me crazy.  I've knitted a yarn ball just to keep my hands busy while I wait. 
We've been boxing up and moving more things this week.  I hate boxing up my books.  Hopefully I'll have them all together in bookshelves in one room within a year.
I'm up for jury duty on the 30th.  We're moving out on the 31st.  Perfect timing huh?!  I just hope my yarn is here by then so I can knit while I wait.  That will be a great use of the time.
If I can get to a good yarn shop this week I may go ahead and buy supplies for the Kyoto top I saw at knitty.com.  We'll see.

Newbie
I've just been learning about the whole weblog thing in the past four days so I'm totally new to this.  I hope all will bear with me as I try it out.  Lately I've been on a knitting binge.  I'm impatiently waiting for the yarn I ordered to make a Ravenclaw scarf (book colors).  For those not in the know, Ravenclaw is one of the houses at Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter books.  Ever since I saw the sites about Harry Potter knitting I've been obsessed.
I want to join in many knit-alongs.
I've also started cruising all kinds of knitting sites and now have many other projects I want to do.  Mostly some really cool tops for myself.  It seems I tend to make my crochet projects gifts, but choose knitting projects that I want for me.
Anyway, I'll be working on this site for a little while so please bear with me!

I'll do my best to use this as a way to get some "me" time.  I'm hoping it will help me to see a project all the way through instead of fizzing out at the end.
Feel free to email me with comments or questions at arm_3 (at) earthlink . net, squishing it all together and replacing the (at) with @.
