Episode 19: Small Victories can overshadow hectic nights

 I made a mistake in recording! Lindsay podcasts on Friday, not Wednesday. My brain is shot, so don't blame me, blame all the residents that decided to cause trouble last night.
WIP's: The pavonis has been extended into March. Let us see your progress on our Ravelry group. Evelyn's sweater has gotten a good amount of work done on it at the expense of my pavonis. I should have it done by the end of the week though.
Finished objects: My socks :)
Thank you to Enid for following our blog!
Update since recording.  There was another fire drill.  If I had pushed back my recording a half hour you would have witnessed a jump of fright from me in the middle of the podcast!

In relation to Lindsay's post

For those of you who do not know who S club 7 is, here is a link to one of there songs, (Enjoy the 90s fashion and dancing) the one that Lindsay was trying to play through the podcast. So now you can picture Lindsay and I about 10 years younger on the back of a bed jamming out with the bedposts as "microphones" to S club 7 and Celine Dion. Our renditions of Immortality, My heart will go on and Us were gems. I'm sure mum would agree!

Episode 17: No Notes Required!

Show Notes:
I am really hoping this works, since blip is being a pain to work with today. If not give me a shout on Plurk or as a comment, and I will see what I can do.


Plucky- Body is done, and the sleeves are picked up. Not much done on them, even though the body was done early Monday morning.

Socks- They got a good few rows done on them since microwaves are such complicated pieces of machinery and its no big deal to set the alarm off and stick everyone outside at the most inopportune times.

Pavvie- Rows are getting longer, so progress gets slower, making this weeks total a repeat, ish. I know not much.

Butterfly Monstrosity- Not much progress, but it is going nicely.

No finished objects, and not much/anything on the horizon.

That's it for me I think, so have a great weekend, and Mum'll see you on Monday.

Bets/elizstitches- Thanks for joining the blog! I know you joined a while ago, but some people forgot to mention you.

Works in Progress-
Lots and lots of work done on Plucky- a good 6ish inches. I now only have 4 ish inches left to go. Woop Woop.

Pavonis- Not much done on pavvie since I have had exams and such, making class knitting rather scarce this week. But I did manage a good repeat. So not too bad.

As promised, pictures of my woe befallen door. I am asking maintenance what I can do about this because I don't want to loose my deposit for their stupidity.

So with that I shall leave you guys, long post this time, sorry 'bout that. If you are missing me in the middle of the week, I am on Plurk as Lindy, and Rav as knittingdoink, so drop me a line if you want, I love hearing from you guys. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend.

Episode 13-Happy Half Priced Chocolate Day!

Time to hit those shops, every girls dream in the shops chocolate! How was everyone's Valentine's day? Hope it was filled with lots of sweets and chocolate. Pavonis has had its regular 1 1/2 repeats added onto it, Evelyn's sweater has been worked on-a total of 3 increases made on it. Other than that it was a normal college week filled with school work that unfortunately took precedence over my yarn adventures :( Why do I have to be a studious college student? I'd get soooooo much more crafting done!

Episode 11: Rainboots and Random Ramblings

Show Notes:
Socks- thanks to the fire drills I got a few rows done, but don't expect those needles to burst into flames, they are probably just going to poke along.

Butterfly Monstrosity-  aka my cross stitch has been going well, even with my over site.

Pavonis- 1 1/2 repeats done, not that much, but if you factor in the cancellation of a class and my cross stitch being my favorite this week, its understandable.

Plucky- Going well, it has reentered my favor. I am about 2 inches away from being half done with the body, finally.

No finished projects this time guys, sorry. Or future projects for that matter.

Some random ramblings and such. And that is it for this weeks episode from me. So until Monday when Knitalittle casts her pod, Have a great weekend!

Episode 10-Exciting week filled with new discoveries!

Episode 8: Humidity, the Bane of My Existance

Show Notes:
Works in progress:
Plucky- (see my rav page) 2-3 inches done, it is winning back my affection, very very slowly.
Pavonis- Going along swimmingly, 2 repeats done this week, and am still loving it. I can do that just about anywhere, I don't see where mum's problems are.

Another cross stitch, see catch up with a camera for a picture.
Yet more plain toe up socks

A cross stitch that you will see when it makes its way to the intended person.

Shout outs:
My only shout out is to paletpc@gmail who just started following our group, so welcome and thanks!

There is a thread for you to show off your WIP's as well as a thread for your pavinis pleasure, whether to ask for help, show of triumphs and successes or ask for a tissue, were there for ya, probably because we have been there ourselves.

Have a great weekend everyone and Mum will see you on the flip side. As a side note, where did that phrase come from, is it derived from the days of vinyl when a single had another song on the other side? Or somewhere else? If you know, feel free to enlighten! If not, ignore my random side note.
