Go Canucks!

Today is game 6 of the playoffs and Vancouver is a nutty place to be. Worse is that I work in downtown Vancouver and the crowds are crazy during a game!

Despite the crazyness, I was able to finish my skytrain knitting project, which is a project I bring with me when I’m on the train to work (and work breaks lol).

I used 2 circular needles and it was much easier than 5 DPNS of hell. The sock pattern is http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-ribbed-socks and it was okay. The gusset and toe directions could of been written better but I got through it. It’s sized for a guy’s foot, so it’s a little too big for me.

While we are on about the Canucks, I did a couple Canucks manicures myself to get into the spirit of things. Annoyingly, these manicures got the most compliments from strangers than any other ones I’ve done.
Nail polish used:
sinful colors – sanfransico
sinful colors- midnight blue
sinful colors- tokyo pearl
La rosa – 07 green crackle

This manicure is the same manicure as above, but I added a green crackle ontop to be lazy and keep my manicure longer.

3 months of socks

I’ve been working on these for almost 3 months:


Phew, and now it is over! Here is the pattern I used via Lion’s Brand. The first time I did socks, well one sock, was back in university. I knit that sock non-stop during all my breaks and in class sometimes and it took a whole semester! This sock I just did on the skytrain commute and during slow times at work, thus at least 4-6 hours per week for almost 3 months. I’m guessing I’ve just gotten faster at knitting than yearsyearsyears ago.

What’s the new projects I’m on? Top secret, with more ideas than time to create.
