Radio Darkness

Captain's Log, 6-27-2007:

As we approach the slingshot around the moon in approach to the asteroid, we will experience radio darkness, we will not have contact with either ship.

Yep, tomorrow is D-day here, we're movin' the furniture out of this apt. and moving into his mom's until the 3rd of July (we'll move into our Columbus, Ga. apt that day). We may or may not have internet for a week or two.

I may be able to get back online in the am, but consider this my last transmission.

Signing off.

Finally, Some KNITTING

So I have been telling ya'll I've been knitting, but finally proof! I give you my June socks for SAM3 knit with Lorna's Laces Shep. Sock in mountain creek (a birthday gift from a friend). I did my usual toe up with magic cast on, magic loop, two socks at a time. These don't fit so well, but it could be my feet are funky in the summer. I know my hands swell in the heat, my feet may have the same reaction. I hope they fit during the winter weeks.

I sorta used this pattern, but I didn't like the diamonds after the first one I knit. And I was all nutty about the ktb marching up the front and I think it kinda looks like a skinny snake now, starting with the diamond head at the toe and going up to the cuff.

I don't like them soo much, but I hated knitting them. I love this yarn, but it's dark. Don't even think of k2tog or p2tog with this stuff, that willow green will make your eyes bleed trying to see in all but the brightest lights. I just worked with this yarn too long.

Remember that I started with the Pomatomus socks and couldn't turn the heel in this yarn, I'm just not that bright. Not right this second anyway, but I have evidence that I got that far before I ripppped right on out. This pic is terrible, the sun wasn't being nice, neither was the sock yarn/pattern/brain.

See, I can knit the stupid pattern, but I can't do the heel flap or pick up the gusset. I want these to be turned toe up by someone smarter than I am, I think Domesticat may have, but I'm not sure if that's Pom. or monkeys. Either way, I want to knit them. Yeah, it's Pomatomus.

In other news, the marathon of baby hat knits ended and I have 8 finished. I sent them out last weekish?? and I hope Sheri gets them before she goes on vacation. Here they are in all their glory, I did do individuals with Julian, but I'm too tired and covered in newsprint from packing for out move to Columbus that I just don't have it in me to edit and load those bad boys. Maybe for a future post.

Off to pack more boxes and perhaps fall asleep on a pile of newspapers.

Crap

I was working on this long big post, and even got it posted. But the pics were too big and everythign got all wonky and then it died. So I give you this small pic of Passion (now sold) wound into a center pull ball. I think it is very sexy. :D Maybe this will give you lurkers an urge to buy from The Fuzzy Peach. The others should wind up just a sexily (not really a word, but go with me).
Get Your Sexy On!


*Blogger hates me and my photos. They keep blowing up when I blog them. GRrrr. This photo is only like 300 pix at it's largest. Rawr*

Fuzzy Update

It's live, and it could be coming to a browser near you (assuming you follow this link)
Yarns You'll Love!
that's right as advertised on Beneath the Fiber Moon by none other than lovely Jessica (episode 27) .

It's been a few weeks now since the Fuzzy Peach hit the street and we've moved some yarn. However, we, the faithful owners, are relocating to a bigger city (eek!) and we need to get this stuff out of our hands and into yours. (read: I don't want to move this yarn :P) So I'm posting the little mini guy below to show you folks out there in blogland what we have left to get your paws on.



Etsy
Buy Handmade
thefuzzypeach


For our customers to see our next update tenatively scheduled for August, we need to sell these skeins so that we can buy more yarn with the profits, duh. For our next endeavor we'll be using a new base yarn that will be more substantial and hold up to Soviet missle attacks and nuclear holocaust (it has nylon). Since that's a bit nicer and more hardy, we have to shell out more for the stuff. Also, when we get this sold, we may be bringing you some cool promotions in the next update. Perhaps some discounts, perhaps some freebies. Freebies are goooood. :D

And to soothe your soul about the purchase, just think, I'm going to be a teacher (high school) so every dollar you spend here supports education! I realize that it probably isn't in your community, but still, it supports education (rationalize). And for the handfull that may be holding out for that "going out of business" fire sale, not gonna happen because I'll knit it up myself! :P

Remember if you love us, blog us!

Newsy News

So I have had some wondermus news for a while, but never had the time to post here, not really.

I have a job for next year, I'll be teaching in Talbot County at the high school. :D And, we have a two bedroom apt. on hold for us to move in on July 5th. And, today the boy got a call from Aflac to do a preemployment screening thing. You know, pee in a cup, do computer tests, see if he's nutzo. So the world is looking up for now. :D I'm very happy and things are just coming together. We're buying furniture like mad trying to fill the new apt. (the living room alone is almost the same size of the entire apt we live in now: just about 1 ft. shorter and 5 ft. skinner). We bought a king sized bed today and it has one seXy headboard. It's like from the 60's or 70's, it reminds me of the kind of bed my Granny and Papa had, except a little tackier. hehe

And so I am packing, not knitting. I knit 8 baby hats for the Loopy Ewe's Q2 challenge and sent them off this am. I also finished my moutain creek socks. I hated knitting them. I think I worked with that yarn for too long, trying too many different patterns. Finally, I found one that was ok but by the end of the thing it looked nothing like the pattern, I just used a few of the pattern elements and repeated them a bunch of times. I am also working on a next pair of socks, this in On Linie (??) in a very springy color. They are pretty, but due to short time and poor lighting, I cut the yarn in the wrong spot so they are two totally different socks. Ah, well. Can't have exact twins each time. I was going to frog and try to start over with the same repeat, but I'm not so sure I'll have enough yarn, it said it was 100g which is usually enough, but I dunno. Don't always trust what I read on ballbands that are printed in different languages. :P

Other than that, things are just about packing, cleaning, painting, sanding, panicing about getting out of here the 30th and not being able to move in there until the 5th of July. We have to move to his mom's for a week. :/ I'd rather just move once and be done with this mess.
