A spot of irony.

Just a tad. A tiny little bit.

OKAY, FINE, THIS ISN'T FUNNY.

Yes, it's true, the alleged expert (though I've never claimed to be one, except sarcastically) knitter, me, the one leading the KAL...

Fine, I'm having some trouble with the sleeves, okay?

I ADMIT IT. IT IS THE FIRST STEP TO DEALING WITH DENIAL.

So, if everyone would be patient just a bit, I will re-knit this:
a little bigger, and get these stupid sleeves done, and we will continue onward, without me bitching any more.

Much.

The good news is,
I think this will make a great hat once I knit a top to it and add about a hundred flowers. (Possibly some I've crocheted, if I ever figure THAT out, oh, hell, not going there again.)

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go knit a metric butt ton of leaves.

This is what I get for coloring outside the lines.

PS: Just cleaned an unholy amount of crud off my camera lens. Pictures should look better now. (Good grief.)

Heh, making the Goob a vintage floweredy swim cap with the leaves as the band would be awesome. Sort of like this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/marvelously-mod-wigs

Might be fun to solicit knitted/crocheted flower contributions. Then she can show off her hat with contributions by crazy internet people. :P

Not to be disrespectful but, does Goob have a thumb growing out of her back?
LOL. sorry, I just had to get my nose up to the monitor to figure out what that was. I kinda think it might be her foot.

It's a cute picture. I'm just giving you a hard time. hehehe.

No hurry on your sleeves. I am still to the elbows. I got delayed by a new weaving loom and a new woolie winder on my spinning wheel. I had to play with my toys. Love 'em. But I did knit on my sleeves today.
Thank you for walking us through this sweater. Once we finish I can see new sweaters in my 9 year old's life and other family members. It is so much faster than what I have knit in the past even though I as slow as a 2 toed sloth.

Is that my Greenleaf Cap or have you independently used that border? It does work well for a hat.

The Goob has a laurel wreath! Way cool. And if she throws it in her beanbag chair, she can rest on her laurels. I'd be happy to contribute a flower to her hat.

I see a hat pattern!!!!

I'll make a flower for the Goobie's hat! I can crochet, and even follow a pattern (every once in a while).

P.S. Irony is the opposite of wrinkly.

Goob gives it a thumbs up! That's a good thing, right?

Cool hat! If you're serious about the crochet, big warning here. Mind how you hold the hook. I hold it like a knife. Has caused serious wrist pain. Hold it like a pencil, which is the "correct" way to hold the hook.

Tweet me if you want advice on the actual doing of it though.
