...I hate that.
I'm sure everyone has noticed that as the Goob gets older and more of a handful, my knitting has shifted from elaborate stranded color to 'zen sweaters' of straight stockinette. And I imagine it's gonna stay that way until she goes to college. At least. So.
Anyone remember this?
(There's supposed to be a picture here, of a great pile of yarn, Elann's Highland Wool in about 25 colors.)
If not (and I don't blame you), back at the end of 2006 I ordered the yarn needed to knit Geometric Star from Kaffee Fassett. (Having the blog makes it easy to keep track of this stuff. That's both a good thing and a bad thing.) Odds of me being able to concentrate on a Fassett pattern any time in the next decade are about nil. And I've been searching around for another zen project or ten.
It hit me today. I can knit a couple-four felted bags with this stuff. And unload 'em on people for Christmas. Ohm. There's also half a ton of cotton yarn in The Pit that could make quite a few string bags. Or a nice stockinette tee shirt.
I know I should be finishing off my father-in-law's cable knit, but damn it, I have to THINK to do that. (I'm almost to the shoulders and ready to start the sleeves).
Aaaaand blogger isn't letting me upload photos. (Scheduled outrage? Our home network? My head full of snot causing me to push the wrong buttons?) So, fuck it, I'll try again later.
