Yeah. Let's talk about knitting. Remember the steeked jacket? Mine looks like this.
Oh, and also like this:
Maybe we all should get hot on this project and finish 'em? At the least, I want to finish mine and write up the rest of the directions. I feel bad that at the moment it's an unfinished project, in terms of how-to.
But first I gotta finish the Mystery Knit. I did not have to unravel the sleeves, just tinker a bit. You'll understand when you see the design. (If Amy does not accept it for Knitty I will make it available here, for free. It's kind of a practice run at pattern writing before I start selling them.) Anyway, it's coming along. It's possible it could be done in a week or so if I get myself going.
Then there's the lone aqua sock. It's sitting in the middle of my dining room table to remind me how lonely it is, every time I eat. Poor, poor sock.
Oh, and remember this?
I've been working on this again, off and on as a break when I'm tired of the Mystery. It's still not quite done, but you can see it's getting pretty long. That's an eighteen inch (uh... forty cm? thereabouts?) knitting needle it's on, for scale. I'm knitting it on slightly smaller needles than suggested so it'll be denser and smaller (and hopefully use a little less yardage). But it's still gonna stretch like a mofo when it's blocked. My toes are in there too, for scale. I have funny looking piggers.
Have I mentioned there's a family wedding at the beginning of June I should really knit lace for? That side of the family appreciates handmade gifts - one of the cousins FRAMED a doily I knit her and hung it in her dining room like art work. I also hear lots of variations of "I keep it on the table/dresser that's been in the family for five generations." So yeah, I need to knit something. At least I'll use something from The Box (the one that contains nine miles of crochet cotton).
Speaking of crochet cotton, would you knit a sweater out of it on size two needles, if it was cool enough? Or am I insane to even think it?
The husbeast is watching Deadliest Catch. I'm getting seasick just looking at the TV.
