This actually is a knitting blog. So, here are some pics.
Hat Attack 2– my death hat (the one I made)
yorik, batman and connor macleod — they all agree:
As far as death hats go, “there can be only one!”
look at that lovely tasty sparkly alpaca silk yarn.
((if the pattern weren’t such a PITA I would knit it again for myself))
And my current actual, I mean I really am doing it, I promise wip: the circular shrug from Peony Knits. What a delightful pattern. I am knitting it while sitting in lecture (ignoring a certain teacher throwing me out for knitting– he was joking, I swear) and while cleaning up my tivo. It’s going fast!!
This is baby llama yarn on size 9 needles. The camera– sadly does not capture the true peacock goregousness (there I go making up words again) of this yarn.
And finally, a preview. I am making stitch markers for Melanie over at lotus knits to go with her yarn club. Yarn, captured in resin. This is a snapshot of the practice round (not her yarn– some truly gorgeous Socks That Rock, Jewel of the Nile.
don’t poke the resin too much while it is setting– it gets cloudy.
and: seal your yarn up in good old elmer’s glue. without it, the yarn melts or something. Swear to goodness.
I forgot. I bought the pattern Giselle from Stitch Diva (by marnie maclean) but I haven’t cast on. I’ve been shopping around for yarn. well. I bought the new Mason Dixon book… sorry Giselle. I have a new MUST have sweater. I want this sweater on my body like yesterday:
drool. 1- I love the expanding ribs. Soo pretty, and feminine too. 2- the color is very pretty. 3- words. Yes. words and knitting. I don’t know why I like it, but I do. The hunt is on for an appropriately ‘me’ quote. I am taking suggestions.
Ok, that’s pretty much it for now. TTYL
