V Knits

My name is Venus. I knit as much as possible, while juggling work and various other activities. Currently, my yarn sprees hinder my ability to save up for trips and other important things. But I'm not apologizing.

I have finished the Portland Pullover and I won't post specs until I have dandy photos to post as well. I am also excited about a new project. I will let you in on a secret. I am a nerd and will be attending a comic convention in Seattle at the end of March. The big deal is that one of my (and my Fella's) favorite artists will be there. The wonderful Time Sale. I have decided to take some of the art he has done and use it as designs for a scarf that I will give to him at the ComiCon. Again, pictures are necessary to explain so I will wait until then! In the mean time, this means another trip to the LYS!

I'm the Biggest Idiot!

Hmm, Where did everyones comments go? I guess no one comment's anymore.

Not the case at all. I've just been too out of it to properly navigate the new Blogger and to realise I set myself up to moderate comments. Doh! If I want to see comments I have to moderate them! What a dummy I am. Anyway, thanks to everyone with their nice comments and I'll try to be more observant in the future.

I know I haven't posted in a while. As my Fella gently put it, "You should update your blog because probably the reason nobody is making comments is because you left a picture of my foot up for a month. Prolly." This could be true! *lol* I've had the blog blahs and although I haven't been busy with unknitterly things, I haven't really had a lot to post about.

I did get a new bag though! This one I found at a local church second-hand store. And only for a dollar fifty! Score. In it, I am keeping my newly found project.

This is the Portland Pullover from the fall 2006 Interweave Knits, with a peek at the yarn I am using. If you look back a few posts you will see the bowl full of pretty mohair I received from a friend. That's the stuff. I am actually done up to the chest (it's knit in the round from the bottom hem up,) but do not have progress photos since I am lacking a camera at the moment! (Damn you Jirr!) I am thinking of using a contrasting color for the arms, yoke and neck. Haven't decided yet.... The pattern is super easy and I may be tempted to make several of these, depending on the how the first one goes.
