The Wasp Woman

Here is a freebie pattern i designed for Super Sock Scarefest

This is part of a crazy KAL project with points and prizes.

Blame my dad who exposed me to killer clowns from outer space and my grandad for making crazy movies like attack of the killer tomatoes and night of the living dead.

and no, we do not celebrate halloween, i just like old movies, especially if you can see strings in the props. :0)

Current projects

from the last interweave, window pane socks lace wing in plum and claudia handpaint i think...
i modified the heel, to continue the striping and colour work.

this is for me, a sweater. optimum DK from SWTC in desert.

this is soo lovely to work with. what kind of sheep is an optim,though?

it is becoming the silken scabbard from stitch diva. however, i am modifying the cables cuz i have never been a fan of the horseshoe cable, so i am changing mine to a saxon braid.

i really lovely the elegeance of stitch diva patterns mixed with easy top down construction.

hopefully i will get to post on its progress again soon.


shew! after 4 wks without a car, i am actually mobile, so i can post a picture of my great HHHH box. dark picture, but the yarn is some amazing blues and it looks bought! she "chain-plied" which is like navajo i think?
i have been dying to try carbonized bamboo since i saw it at a guid meeting. thank you so much!
we have enjoyed the nutella. yummy! it is my fave thing from living in italy. we came stateside and i was devestated by peanut butter instead of nutella sandwiches!
i am looking forward to using the book, and the magazine is new to me. i have enjoyed it!
thank you so much rachel!
