Knitting progress photos...

As promised, here are a few knitting progress photos. I actually have made more progress since I took the pictures. I am now up to the point where I finish the trim on the other side and then knit the handle and sew everything up.

(If you look real close on the above photo you can spot my mistake where I messed up a row and got the stitches twisted somehow. I decided since it is going to be felted, I wasn't going to pull it out and start again.)

Our class isn't meeting this coming week because the teacher is on holiday so I'm sure I'll be completely done before our next class. :-) In the light, the main color looks navy to me, but it is actually black. I really hope it turns out well.

Here is a closeup:
So, there you have it. I hope to be able to post pictures of the completed project in the next week.

Well, I'm off to do more research for a spell I need. I've got to find just the right combination to help with this petition and then make certain I have all the ingredients.


Somethings brewing in the cauldron...

I'm sorry I haven't posted much lately. There is a lot going on and I've been very busy. I do have some knitting progress photos of the Iceland Felted bag that I can post and hopefully will do so either later tonight or tomorrow. Posts will probably continue to be sporadic right now as there is something big brewing in my cauldron... :-)

Don't ya just love a teaser! Seriously, there is something in the works which could be life changing for me and as soon as I'm comfortable enough to talk about it without worrying I'll jinx it, I'll let you in on the secret. All I can say at this point is that it is a very good thing and please send me lots of good luck energy!

Alright, I'm off to a vodou group meeting. I promise to post knitting pictures soon.

I wish you all a blessed Ostara and a happy spring. May the seeds you plant grow into abundant beauty.

Getting nervous...

I'm nervous. I'm getting ready to attend my first voodoo ceremony. I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to talk about it with people outside the group, but I'll try to find out. I should at least be able to tell my reactions and feelings. I'm sure it is verboten to speak about the actual ceremony details. But I'll ask and if I can, I'll share.

I'm not sure if this is the path that I am supposed to follow but I think it is at least one I should try right now. It may turn out to be nothing but it could turn out to be something and I'd hate to miss out on something. :-)

For those that read both my blogs, I'm still unable to post on the other one. I tried to post my Saturday Sky photo earlier and am still getting errors. I'm seriously considering moving from blogger to something else. If this keeps up another few days, I'll be looking else where.

Well, time to get ready. Need to change clothes and gather my offerings to take.

Posts and frustrations...

I tried to post at my other blog, but blogger is giving me fits! For the past few months I've had to use word verification to post to my blog because somehow it was marked as sp*m. Today however, I can't post at all. It won't take the word verification and won't give me another one to try. Urgh!

I guess I'm posting this here because I'm just very frustrated and need to vent. I know that isn't what this blog is for, but...there it is. :-)

New Knitting Project

I have found my next knitting project. It is a Iceland Felted Bag. Here's a picture of the yarns and pattern that I will be working on. It wasn't my first choice and wasn't even my second choice, but at least it is a project.

Anyway, I hope it will turn out okay. I haven't started it yet, but really want to soon. Class doesn't start back until next Tuesday and I'd like to get a start on it before class. We shall see.

This weekend was interesting in the occult genre. Friday night I had to help a friend cleanse a room in her house. There was some sort of energy there that was seriously creeping out her two sons. It seemed better when I left and when I talked to her the next night she said it was much better. It was nice being able to help her in the cleansing. It felt pretty good to use that side of myself.

Saturday night I went to the second meeting of a women's group, but did not have a good time. I'm not sure exactly what caused my issues, but I could not stay in a good mood. I can't quite put my finger on it, I don't know if I was just tired or if there was someone sending out bad energy. There was a presence that was there and was very distracting. For some reason I couldn't block it out, when usually I can. I don't know... I haven't been able to block much of anything lately. It is causing me serious migraines and a lot of lost sleep. This coming weekend I'll be participating in my first voodoo ceremony. I'm excited but am also very nervous and intimidated.

Exciting new projects

So, I have some new things going on that I think are pretty neat. I have decided on my next knitting project and am looking forward to starting that. I'm going to get yarn this afternoon!

Earlier this week I signed up for a hoodoo class and am really looking forward to doing it. Part of the agreement to take the class is that I can't share materials from the class with anyone, so you won't see me post those things here. But I will probably talk about my reactions to the things I'm learning. One of my friends told me she was taking it and when I read about it from the website I was thrilled. It sounds like just what I've been looking for. I told a mutual friend and now we are all three taking the class. Woo hoo!

So, things are very busy and picking up steam. I'll try to post when I can and when I feel it relates to either knitting or my spirituality.

Enjoy the full moon tomorrow!

Finished Baby Sweater

Ta Da!!!

My first non scarf knitting project... for more photos and gushing by me click here.

But I'll ask the same question here that I asked there...any suggestions for what I should knit next?
