We've had bugs of all kinds around here at House O' Samurai. The Baby's at that stage of life where she catches every germ imaginable while her immune system figures out what to do with them. Half the time I catch them from her, and her runny nose and sniffle turns into a full-on chest cold for me - you know how it goes.
Computer bugs and sleeping off germ bugs have thus far kept me from posting the baby video over on You Tube, but I'll get to it soon, I swear.
Then there are the knitting bugs:
I had hoped to have the body of the steeked jacket done today, but I discovered a HUGE mistake in the pattern (committed while knitting and reading again - you'd think I would learn) and ripped back two rows and put it all back on the needles. I've got four rows to go and it's done - maybe tonight during Mythbusters.
I was also plotting how to do some crazy Cat Bordhi felted moebius-cast-on bowl thingie (it's all about felted containers at the moment), and had picked the yarn out of the odd balls in the stash: two balls of llama yarn leftover from the watery llama scarf, and one ball of purple/pink left over from the chainmail sweater (from "Knitter's Almanac" by EZ) that I knit in, uh, like 1999 or something.
And I realized, as usual, I was arranging it so that everything I worked on was the same color. Again. Bugger that. So I'm hitting my fallback plan.
I think it's about time "Innsvinget Ganser" had a second sleeve, don't you?
EDITED TO ADD: "Innsvinget Ganser", aka Princess-line Gansey, is from the book "Norsk Strikkedesign" from Unicorn Books, page 50. I've considered, for 2008, declaring it the year of this book and knitting my way from cover to cover, since I want 90% of the sweaters shown in the book. If anyone else has a copy or is interested, perhaps we could do a single-sweater "Strikke-along" one of these days and we could all knit something, knitters choice. Maybe in the fall?
