Monkey Socks Here I Come!

Check out the Lorna's Laces I scored on eBay! I think I paid around $21 for 2 skeins of Child's Play. Aren't the colors just yummy? I think this yarn wants to be made into Moneky Socks!!!

I plan on joining the Lime and Violet Finish-it-up-along '08 over on Ravelry. I've got 3-4 projects on the needles that need to get finished up.

1. The Earflap Hat

2. The Tuxedo Pillow (A knitty gritty pattern. It's on the knitty gritty website ( and on Ravelry. This is the second one I'm doing. Here's the first.)

3. Cherry Blossom Socks. (They just need binding off; see the previous post.I'm using this pattern..... ( and the Cherry Blossom sock yarn by Cherry Tree Hill.)

4. The Perfect Sweater (It's a Mason-Dixon sweater pattern that goes all the way up to 4x but I'm making the 3x for my sweetie. Do a search for it on Ravelry. I'm using Red Heart Soft yarn in's the only acrylic I like and my SO is allergic to wool.

5. The Wonderful Wallaby

I don't even know where to begin with these socks. I love the yarn and it knit up pretty quickly. I'm using a basic toe-up pattern (these are my first toe -up socks) and I think I've just been rushing the socks just to have a new FO. I cast off too quickly and tightly. I get the right sock done and try to take a pic and I cant even get the sucker around my ankle the bind off is sooooo tight! I can't believe it. I got so frustrated and angry at the sock and myself, I just flug it across the room. I've been a bit moody the last few days too; I dont know why.

Also, since this yarn came in just a big ol' hank I wasnt sure where to stop and where to begin the next sock. Hindsight being 20/20 I realize I should have weighed and seperated the hank to make 2 equal socks. The next time I buy yarn like that, I'll be sure to do it. This was my birthday yarn; purchused from The Loppy Ewe. Cherry Tree Hill, colorway: Cherry Blossom. The last pair of socks was Lorna's Laces and since you have to buy 2 skeins of that to make two socks its pretty easy to know where to stop; assuming your going toe-up. I think I'll get better with my next pair. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna do toe-up. I'm dying to try the Monkey socks or something along those lines. I just need to learn PATIENCE and a more elastic bind-off. Wish me luck!!!

Christmas Concert

Aija's school has a Holiday Concert today. The 1st and 2nd graders (thats us!) were singing Santa Clause Rock. I thought it was so cute to see all the kids get up and sing. The kindergarteners (sp?) were esp. cute.

Tis the season....

I let the heathens make gingerbread cookies last weekend. I thought they came out rather well. They could have been a bit more moist for my taste but other than that they did a great job. Now on to the gingerbread house. Because everyone knows....Gingerbread people need somewhere to live, right?

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

*singing* It's the most wonderful time...of the yearrrr..... I love Christmas time. And not only is my favorite holiday on the way but ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, folks of all ages...IT'S ALSO CRUNCH TIME!! It's about 18 days until Christmas and that means KNITTING 24 HOURS A DAY to get all gifts done! I have a just a few gifts to finish, what about you?

1. A scarf (which I will now refer to as the Never-Ending-2x2rib-Scarf-Of-Doom)for my father-in-law, the hat to this set is already done. Would you like to see it being modeled on my sweetie?

2. A hoodie for my neice. My daughter and niece wanted matching hooded sweatshirts; my daughters is done already in a light pink and my nieces is barely a waistband at this point in dusty lilac.

3. The Perfect Sweater (pattern can be found on Ravelry by the Mason-Dixon Girls) for my sweetie. At this point, it's only the back panel of a sweater. She doesn't mind if it's late, she already has a pair of socks done. Also, for Christmas.

I made good use of Stitch N Bitch night tonight by working on these projects, but. Um. I accidently cast on the Everlasting Bagstopper (pattern found in Knitty) for myself in a deep, rich purple Lion Brand Cotton. Oops. THATS NOT CHIRSTMAS KNITTING!!! I couldn't help it! It's a great bag, not just for carrying gorceries either. I see myself riding my adult sized tri-cycle in late spring with this bag slug over my shoulder full of fresh fruits and veggies. Also a fresh bagette of french bread inside. To sit at the park with. This is the perfect bag for those activities. Of course, summer is quite a bit off, I know. Ahem. Back to the Christmas knitting....

A little snow, a little cake and a BIG birthday

My birthday was the 4th and I had a pretty good time. My beloved listened to every single, not-so-subtle hints I dropped and bought me a ball winder and swift. I've spent the last 2 days playing with my new toys. I had lemon cake (yum-o!)
and a VERY delicious taco dinner. All in all, it was a VERY good birthday. Age, you ask? I'll never tell! *wink*

It has also been snowing the last few days. Molly doesnt like to go down into the snow to pee or poop so that dog of mine has been pooping on the PORCH!!! BAD DOG!!!

I love free stuff!

Okay. So. I'm a member of a Freecycle in my area. If you don't know what Freecycle, google it...I'm sure there is one in your area. Anyway, usually the stuff on Freecycle is stuff that people either don't want/need to get rid of/don't want to sell @ a yard sale. And normally I just wade thru the crap (because there is ALOT of crap to wade thru) and EVERY now and again you'll find a jewel. Like FREE YARN AND FREE CROCHET BOOKS!!! And seriously, I didn't even know Singer MADE knitting kits, did you? Even tho it's acrylic and not really a pattern I'm interested in, I thought I could use the yarn in the kit to make Molly a sweater since it's getting pretty nippy outside. Every cute doggie needs a sweater right?

I'm just not sure....

I'm not sure how crafty I am. Am I destined to just be a knitter? I S-U-C-K @ crochet, I don't do crosstitch, and I can't sew on a machine to save my life. Remeber the sewing machine I was given? Well, I haven't exactly figured out how to use it. I've had it for weeks now and it just sits in my dining room mocking me. Most of the time it whispers to me that even 5 year olds in 3rd world countrys can stitch Nikes on a sewing machine. Which is true, but not very helpful. I've fiddled with the buttons, etc and fucked something up because everytime I think I'm just humming along something freaky happens and the needles snaps in half. WTF?! I mean, how hard can this possibly be? I really need someone to just sit beside me show me what I'm doing wrong and what I should be doing right. You know? Also, I think I need to whip out the permanent marker and mark the knobs, etc. *sigh* So sad, I swear. Exactly how in the heck am I supposed to learn steeks if I don't have a machine to practice on?!

I guess on the bright side, I am pretty good at painting useless objects bought in craft stores in a frenzy with a hot 40% off coupon in my hand.

Bad, Bad Week

I've had SUCH a bad week it's hard to even explain the happenings that have been going on.

Today's Funny

A soldier ran up to a nun. Out of breath he asked, "Please, may I hide under your skirt. I'll explain later."

The nun agreed.

A moment later two Military Police ran up and asked, Sister, have you seen a soldier?"

The nun replied, "He went that way."

After the MP's ran off, the soldier crawled out from under her skirt and said, "I can't thank you enough Sister. You see, I don't want to go to Iraq.

The nun said, "I understand completely."

The soldier added, "I hope I'm not rude, but you have a great pair of legs!"

The nun replied,

"If you had looked a little higher, you would have seen a great pair of balls....I don't want to go to Iraq either."

I know the whole "no-tax-on-clothing" thing is exciting to them but isnt the Canadian dollar doing better than the American dollar? And since they are taking buses like these over here to shop, I mean how much do they pay to ride that bus? Isn't it about the same amount to ride the bus here to shop AS THE AMOUNT THAT YOU ARE SAVING IN TAXES? Someone let me know if I'm wrong. And to top it all off...THEY ARE BUYING UP EVERYTHING!!!! It's getting to the point where an American citizen like myself can't buy a decent pair of boots without tripping over 8 folks from the Great White North. I swear! If it aint the Yarn Harlot, I don't wanna have nothing to do with it. LOL Oh and maple candy...cause that stuff is GOOD!!!

Yarn Shop Review

Originally uploaded by Sinnomen1977
A visit to Victoria's Yarn Shoppe.

A fibery good time was had on Friday when I visited Victoria's Yarn Shoppe. This is a yarn store I stumbled upon; located at 8 E. Main Street in beautiful Girard, PA 16417. Actually, Mary called them a few weeks ago looking for a yarn baller and swift. I had never been to the shop but had heard about it, so off we went on a beautiful Friday afternoon.

The owner is Vicky Foster and she is about the nicest woman ever. She also invited me to the Sit and Knit night they have @ the shop on Monday nights from 6-8pm. This is only one pic I got (I accidently erased the others) of the wall o' yarn in her shop. Vicky carrys beautiful yarns; the standard fare such as Tofuties, Regia sock yarns and some craft store types of yarn like Paton's Wool, etc. She also has lots of examples of her knitting around the store. She showed me around the store, introduced me to some of the ladies that happened to be in the shop, and invited me to have a seat at the table in the back of the store where she, herself, was knitting. She seemed quite intrested in what I was knitting and we had a spontaneous Stitch n Bitch while I worked on my Sock of Doom (The Purple Haze Lorna's Laces socks) and she worked on a hangbag to be felted.

Check her store out! She accepts cash and checks; no credit cards or web page as of yet. She's only about 15-20 minutes from Erie (30 for me cause I drive kinda slow). You'll enjoy yourself.

Well. It finally happened. My best friend I am have broken up. *sigh* 5+ good years we had together, although I have to admit, she was used when I bought her from Rent-A-Center. *snif* That's right, boys and girls, my big screen TV finally bit the dust on Tuesday. *wailing* Ohhhhh for the love of God!!! Whyyyyyy?! We made it thru the good times (Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2 in surround sound) and bad times (when Aija drew on your screen with a pink crayon) together. You were with me, Big Screen, when I first discovered Knitty Gritty. And now...well...your going to the Big Living Room In the Sky. I sure am gonna miss you. I mean, sure I'll go shopping for a new big screen next week, but until then....I'll be watching 32 little inches on the bedroom tv. It just won't be the same, I know! All this plus the war in Iraq. I just don't know how I'm going to go on!!!!

Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself....

To some, I am just Sinnomen Wakefield-Jones, the author of this blog. But to most, I am known as THE MISTRESS OF ART OF FELTING!!!!! *evil laugh* Okay. Not really. Only in my mind, maybe. *ctfu* I do enjoy the felting, tho I might say.

Recently, I've been getting my felting on with numerous projects such as the felted house slippers in the Knit 2 Together book by Tracy Ulman and Mel Clark. As seen here======>

Once I had gotten my mind wrapped around what the pattern wanted me to do, they were a faily easy knited item which I am enjoying quite a bit.

I also decided to knit myself a Booga Bag with a matching felted hat with a simple crocheted border. Now don't ask me why I bothered with a crocheted border when the whole damn thing was going to be felted. I don't know what I was thinking, other than wanting the bag and the hat to match.

I think I like felting so much for a few reasons.....

1. Since I am still a fairly new kniter (less than a year) I still make mistakes and it take everything in my being to go back and fix them. Felting hides LOTS of mistakes!

2. Wool is a pretty cheap fiber for the most part. Most craft stores such as Michaels, AC Moore, Joann Fabrics, and even Walmart carry some cheapie version of it like Lion Brand. Not that there is anything wrong with Lion Brand Yarn, I think it's a good felting wool. I'm just not sure I would want to wear it in a garment against my skin.

3. Felted wool fabric is VERY strong. If your making a hand bag of some sort, you can stuff it full of shit and not worry about it breaking, etc.

Oh. My. Gawddddd!!!!

New iPods and iPhone Price Cuts
Thu Sep 6, 2007 1:49PM EDT
See Comments (1)
Apple announced a refresh to the entire iPod line: the major story is a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch widescreen iPod that looks a lot like the iPhone and has Wi-Fi built into it. Users will be able to download content directly to the new iPods from the iTunes store using Wi-Fi networks — no computer necessary. The iPod Touch comes in a $299, 8GB model and a $399, 16GB model. The iPod touch will be available for purchase in mid to late September.
The addition of video to the Nano brought a major design change for Apple's most popular music player. The new Nano is a lot shorter than its predecessor, but to accommodate the new 2-inch wide screen, it's stretched a little wider. The 4GB model retails for $149, the 8GB model for $199. There are also 5 new colors for the Nano including a Product Red Nano that benefits the fight against AIDS in Africa.The old iPod Video is now called the iPod Classic. It now comes in silver and black, it's case is all metal, and it's a little thinner than the previous iPod. The 80GB model retails for $249, the new 160GB model retails for $349.The iPod shuffle has 5 new colors including its own Product Red version. It still has 1GB of storage and retails for $79. The new iPod Classic, Nano, and Shuffle will be available starting September 8th.Finally the 8GB iPhone is getting a monster price cut. It debuted at $599, but is now being offered for $399. A software upgrade for the iPhone will also give it access to the Wi-Fi enabled iTunes store.While some were disappointed that Steve Jobs didn't announce a brand new innovative product beyond our wildest imagination, I am personally thrilled at the price cuts. For most people, the prices on the iPhone and the video models of the iPod were ridiculously prohibitive. I like Steve Jobs' new model for the Nano, "It's a little video for everyone."

Greetings from the mistake on the lake!!! I am back from a FAB-U-LOUS vacation and continuing to knit my little life away. I've finished the front panel of the Tuxedo Pillow and now I am working on the back panel(s). Also, I bought the most bee-u-ti-ful lavender/purple sock yarn (Lorna's Laces) while I was in Oklahoma City. Now I've never attempted a sock before but everytime I see one knitted up or the yarn, I'm just itching to try it out. So I'm using the LL yarn purchused @ Carol's Knitting Studio. She's not on the web (hey, Carol? Join the rest of us in the 21st century why don't ya?) but here's the address if you are ever in OKC.

Carol's Knitting Studio
9300 S. Penn Ave.
Okc, OK 73159
(405) 691-0892

She doesn't take plastic (!!!!!!!WHAT??????) but will accept checks (even out of state one's !!!!!WHAT?????) and cash, of course. She has the most beautiful, warm, inviting and MEGA-friendly shop. I thought she was very helpful, indeed.

Anyway...back to my sock. I'm using the pattern/recipe from the Yarn Harlot's book. It was also done up on a recent episode of Knitty Gritty. Ya'll know how much I love that show! I took a picture for ya'll to see, too!

Right now I'm working on this....,,DIY_14141_4842286,00.html The Tuxedo Pillow. Now I did change the colors; just trying to make it a little more me and doing my thang. It's in my computer room, because it's computer room knitting. LOL....yes I have knitting that is designated for certain rooms, etc. This is one of 3 projects I work on when I'm actually sitting at the computer. So, yea, it's a little slow going right now. Here's a pic....

The Dog Days of Summer

I'm not sure about where you are, but it has been hot as HELL in Erie for the past week or so. We were so damn hot yesterday; it was like 95-96 damn degrees outside @ NOON. We were just miserable, bored and frustrated. We just chucked it all and packed the kids and the cooler up and headed out to Waldermeer. ( Of course the kids had fun, got wet and cooled off. I guess we just need a little rest and relaxation and a chance to spend a little quality time together. Branden brought a friend and Aija, Mary and I just had a wonderful time. Mary's a little burnt and Aija and I are a little darker than we started with but I think all and all, a fun time was had by everyone!

Late last night we also went to see 1408. We had some free tickets and decided to go and see it before it ended up at the Dollar Movies. I can't say it was the scariest thing I've seen (That would be a tie between the Blair Witch project and the Exorcist) but it was decent although I didn't too much care for the ending.
