Yes Virginia, there is a loloknits

Hi! Yes, I am real, SereKnitty's partner in fiber crime. By day, I a radiation scientist in North Buffalo, but one day, I would like to make knitting my full-time gig. I'd also like to have a couple of angora rabbits and try to pass off one of those tiny sheep as my dog....
What's on my needles now? I'm less of my knitting polygamist self and only have 3 things going right now...S and I are both making the Closionne Jacket from the Fall 2010 IK, she in a beautiful brown and turquoise combination (her favourite colours) and mine is a deep purple and mossy colour. I decided to be a bit of a weenie and follow the non-circular, non-steek directions - maybe I regret it? I have the torso and one sleeve done, it shall be done soon! I'm also working on a pair of socks, made to order, no pattern - I'm just knitting, tweaking and hoping it fits. luckily the recipent is around, poor man has to keep trying them on! With the goal of a small craft fair at the end of the summer, I'm starting Washcloth-apalooza 2011! I picked up more sugar n cream plus I have cones of plain cotton from who knows where...add a stitch dictionary and here we go! I've always thought that there is something really lovely about a well-done washcloth. Now that I've finally done the blogging thing, I'll really try to keep making it better.
