- one(1) picture of a complete scarf
- one(1) picture of a hat i didn't knit as it related to pyramids and cubits
- one(1) picture of a bag of yarn, without actually showing the yarn
- one(1) picture of a bag i eventually put yarn in
- two(2) pictures of yarn i had not yet started using
- several pictures of drunken knitting debris
so i feel a somewhat compelled (guilty) to share a few more knitting tidbits.
first of all, have i mentioned that KnitterStacy has just about completed an entire f'ing sweater? right. whereas i have not completed the baby blanket for my very pregnant sister that i started over a month ago, despite that her shower was hi, in april. (i am both a Bad Knitter and a Bad Sister.)
want to see it anyway? here's a picture:
oh right. i cannot show you a picture of the blanket because the blanket is in its own special bag. in the backseat of PinkJaime's car. and PinkJaime is in seattle. i am so on top of things.
so in the meantime, remember how i said i was going to make this poncho? here it is so far:
excellent progress for a MONTH of work, no?
yeah, no. it looks like (and is the size of) a fuzzy pink napkin.
moving on...we have my in-the-queue project i need to buy yarn for. it is another CondomHat for Snarky, only this time it is "ribbed for her pleasure." i am not making that up, either. Snarky totally found a ribbed hat pattern and sent it to me and said "can you please make me this?" and i can't say no. but this is:
a. very challenging to make (um, it uses two colors and three double-sided size five needles and has instructions like, "With color A, *K1, SKP, K11, K2tog, K1; rep from * 5 times more, ending with K1." right.) and;
b. actually called a Chemo Cap.
but i aim to please, so who am i to tell Snarky no?
finally, we have the impossible linen-yarn lacey scarf thing i saw in my LYS. "it's just a knit stitch" the LYS maven said. uh huh.
after (i am so totally not kidding) SEVEN attempts, this was the state of said scarf when i got to work today:
uh huh. SEVEN.
notice how i said "was." because also when i got to work today, i had um, a tiny bit of a tangle.
which i personally didn't care about ("i'll just work through it"), but KnitterStacy got her hands on it and just haaaaad to fix it.
and that somehow that resulted in her undoing the whole thing and starting over.
so how does the linen lace scarf four rows in look now? well, let's put it this way: my french-accented colleage stopped by my desk to examine it and said:
"zat loooks like zomezing for a feesh."
to which i replied, "i know. it's supposed to."
"oh! so you want to beee a feesh person?" he asked rhetorically before laughing at me and bouncing away.
so let's review.
i now have a baby blanket being held hostage, a pink fuzzy napkin, a to-be-developed ribbed chemo cap, and a ninth-time's-the-charm linen lace scarf so that i can endeavor to be a feesh person.
