This blog is not dead yet, I've just been super busy.

Hi everyone!

Sorry for not updating in months and months on end. I apologize for that, as I've been so busy and overwhelmed after starting college. Many things have happened since I last posted. 

-I went to New York City for the first time (ever) to receive a national award for ceramics. :) 

Meow-Meow and The New York Times HQs

-I moved into and started college (of course)

Meow-Meow sort of photobombing 

-I have also been to plenty of college football games. :) 

Woooohooo :)

Besides that, not much knitting news. I've barely picked up the knitting needles since August. :( But during the summer I was able to complete some cats and socks.

Catching up!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted for months... I've been extremely busy with school and other things that I never got the chance to make a new entry. However, I do now! :)

In the past months I have knit....


Well, I'm bluffing a bit on that, haha. No knitting for myself, but I did knit a collection of six cats that I gave away to my teachers. 

Group photo! 

Also, I will post something never before seen in the history of the Imaginative Knits Blog. My face! :) I will because a few days ago, I graduated from high school and I have some great pictures of the event! In regards to my prior post, I have decided on the college I will be attending, and I will be staying in-state. :)

That's me on the left with one of my best friends 

That's it for now. I'll be back in a few weeks with a very picture-heavy post! :)

New life events

Hello Readers! Happy New Year 2015!

I apologize for the long and unexpected "hiatus" I've taken from my blog. Sadly I haven't had much motivation/time for blogging or knitting for that matter for a few months, but now, after Winter Break, I'm back in the groove! :)

So what have I been doing these past few months? Some (or probably most) people probably know that I'm a kid, but can almost taste adulthood. ;) I've been applying to colleges these past few months and have gotten into most of them so far, but I haven't made my final decision on which college I'll go to just yet. There won't be an announcement regarding where I am going due to privacy reasons of course; however, I will say if I decided to venture far away or not. Should be an answer to the college question before May. 

Into knitting news, I just completed a pair yesterday of thick socks using my handspun 100% Corriedale in the "Zoe" colorway by Woolen Mill St. The pattern used was "Simple Short Row Heel Socks" on Ravelry. 

I've also finished a sock using the pattern "Andromeda." The yarn I used for it, String Theory Caper Sock in Fusion (a skein I bought at Knitwit in Maine) is soooo soft and cuddly! I don't think it's meant for socks as it has cashmere, but maybe for a garment or accessory (such as a scarf, hat, or cowl/shawl) it would be perfect.

Okay and for in completely non-knitting news, I have bought some more ghost shrimp to fill my empty tank today! This is my third batch of shrimp and I've been raising them for the past four years. I've already taken some pictures of them and I'll show you guys the best ones:
