Nothin' but blue skies

That's right, I'm finally starting to feel better. I've been sick for about a week and a half.
This let me knit! But alas, no photos.. my computer is rebelling on me at the moment.
We had a bad storm, and although it was off.. something happened to it.. possibly damaged hardware. *sigh* So sad!

My projects:

  • Ms Marigold is nearly finished, just one arm hole to add ribbing to, plus weaving in all the ends. I might end up turning it around and adding a button to make a cute mock neck thing and a sexy back.. Undecided though.

  • The socks. Oh the socks.. I laced what I had done up, and realised I didn't like where the decreases were, thus.. rip rip. But, it will be better in the long run. Since I was annoyed about removing about 5-6 inches... I needed a diversion though thus I started to make a...

  • Ribbed Lace Bolero! A very cute design. I'll probably be done it by Monday. It's in the left over merino from Ms Marigold. Perfect for me, since I get chilly easily...

Today though, knitting shopping trip. After recieving Naughty Needles from Kris and Jelena, I was inspired! Thus I finally bought myself Knitting Lingerie Style and Domiknitrix!! Plus a beautiful wool/cashmere blend to make the Waist-Cincher Top from KLS, and angora for the trim. Both in black. I'm changing the sleeves to short sleeves, and I think I'll add satin ribbon laced down the ladder lace under each bust. It will be sexy, soft and very pin-up girl-ish.

Now I have so many things on my list to make.

From Naughty Needles (apparently people think I look like the cover girl!):
- Straitjacket (with my own sleeve mod so it can be "vanilla" or not)
- Thwack! (the barbed version)
- Criss-cross Garter
- Lolita

From Domiknitrix:
- Snow Devil Hat
- L'il Red Riding Hoodie

Then I have my whole OTHER list, but I'll get into that later, because it's bloody huge. I also have things I want to make for people... if they aren't too nice, I enjoy my naughty people after all.

I like ribbon.

I decided today, that my mystery project no longer really needed to be so mysterious! Mostly because I just wanted to share my progress so badly.

I give you my "No name yet" knee highs!

They lace up the back with ribbon, or will soon enough. I know, I know! Kinky socks! What can I say, I'm a kinky girl. I'm hoping to finish off the decreases tonight.. Maybe get close to the ankle. I REALLY hope I can figure out my pattern for the second sock, because it's kind of messy. Also, Tiffany looks so sweet! She's been hanging out with me while I've been knitting lately.

But yes, these will look SO good with my black kilt! I'm also down another 3-5 lbs. *flexes*
