New Blog

Posted in knit and crochet on April 10, 2010 by pigglywigglyknits

After some thought, I’ve decided to switch to a blogger account. I think it’s easier than w.p., but I guess I’ll find out. I’ve had a good time on this blog but I may not be finished depending on how the blogger account.

Knit Picks

Posted in knit and crochet, yarn on March 29, 2010 by pigglywigglyknits

My newest Knit Picks order came today. I love getting mail because it’s fun and nice to get a package every once in a while. I ordered some of their new Simply Cotton Heather in Bermuda Blue and some Suri Dreams in Atlantic. I plan to use the blue cotton for Que Sera by Kirsten Kapur from Knitty Spring+Summer 2010. The Suri Dreams will become some kind of cardigan or sweater, I was thinking the Best Friend Cardigan by Wenlen Chia. If you haven’t checked out Knit Picks it’s at least worth a gander, I’ve heard they have great customer service. I ordered some new options needles from them a few months ago and I’ve been pleased with them so far.

Eventually, I also want to make Wrenna from French Girl Knits. It’s very cute and with chunky yarn and big needles.

Last week I got pretty much all of my hair chopped off. Not in a bad way. I think my new haircut looks pretty good and I especially like that it’s so short in the back.

Lastly, I thinking about maybe switching to a blogger account instead, but I’m not sure. I think it might be easier to manage and write posts. Hmm… is it any easier to add pictures? While I haven’t added any in this post I’d like it to be simpler to add pictures. That and a SLR camera.

It’s been a while…

I have come to realize it’s hard to keep up with a blog. I hope you aren’t mad at me for not posting for a while, I’m still here. Though I have been buried alive in school work I have been able to do some crafting. Between the gap I have made…

and a spring beret and a 1 row lace cowl. It seems like so much all at once but really it has been about 3 months.

Mermaid

Posted in knit and crochet on August 23, 2009 by pigglywigglyknits

For the end of summer I decided to make a mermaid. I looked on Ravelry and couldn’t find one I really like that well so

I’m making it up as I go (and writing it down of course). So far she has a bald head, arms, and the beginning of a tail. I’m still not sure how I want to do the fins but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Other than that I’ve been finishing up a lot of amigurumi recently.
