ETA:That's annoying. My saved draft post is under the day that I started it, and not the day I posted it. It should be up for today, and not Wednesday...

I've got to go volunteer at my local hospital.

Thank you so much Shannon! I love it! If you click any of the pictures below, you can see details about them. I got all of that at the Michigan Fiber Festival. I went with my mom and Emily. The weather was pretty much perfect and I would have bought so much more if I had the money. I had an awesome time and I can't wait for the festival in September.

I have a feeling that this is going to end up too small. Again. I've tried colorwork mittens before, and my stitches are super uneven and too small.
In other news, Michigan Fiber Festival is tomorrow, so I'll be going to that. Woo! See you Sunday!

This is my second sweater in my nearly two years of knitting. I'm excited about this one because I'm knitting it with my handspun! It's a modified Buttony Sweater. I'm making it into a pullover, rather than a cardigan. I joined it into the round by taking the six stitches from each of the button bands and putting them on the needle one stitch from the left, one from the right, etc., until all twelve stitches were staggered. Then I just knit two together six times and then I finished working in the round. I'm to the point of putting the sleeve stitches onto holders and working the body. I want to do some waist shaping, but that will involve math. Wish me luck.

Here are my socks. They're just plain stockinette. Toe-up, short-row toes and heels, 64 stitches for the foot and I increased up to 72 throughout the leg. All I need is to find some elastic thread and sew it into the cuffs. Yay, another pair of socks this summer!

Yummy. Couldn't resist. I should have a pair of socks for tomorrow. Definately finished tomorrow, offical post, either tomorrow morning or Saturday. Yes, I know it's technically Friday now, but I haven't gone to bed yet. Naughty me

This is how I spend yesterday. I went over to my best friend's house and she helped me narrow down my search for school. I think I'm going to major in Business Management, or something like it. That has a good job outlook, doesn't it? There are a lot of things I would like to major in, like electrical or chemical engineering, but I don't know what kind of job I'd get after that. Hm. Decisions, decisions.
My second sock is almost finished! I'm quite happy. Ever since I got on Ravelry, I've been starting and finishing things like crazy. I've still got a couple of projects that haven't made it to Ravelry yet because I haven't gotten around to taking pictures yet.
In other news, I turn seventeen on the twenty-sixth! I don't exactly like being odd-number years old, but I guess I have to deal. =] And, I'm almost excited for my senior year of high school, but part of me is still really afraid of growing up.
