I've been flying under the radar lately due to a tooth infection which made me quite a bit crankier than I usually am. Soooooo here's what's been going on in my world.
Thank you sooo much to Nadine for the link to the pirate mittens, I think that I'll have to make them :-) I've gotten word from my new SP which is super cool and have checked out my SP's blog and I must say, I lucked out, this is going to be a fun edition! I also saw that there are going to be some knitting olympics (thanks again Nadine!) and I think that I'm going to try to get in on the action. It may be the perfect occasion to try concentrating on some knitting and who knows. I may even take on the über-challenge of making my first sweater, the lacy one from rebecca fall 2004. Now there seem to be about a zillion people in this so you know, I may just take on the challenge on my own! Yeah me!
Next, the socks. I'm socking it up these days, the pretty regia socks, which the man wants me to make for him...So yes, I'm still working on the green socks. I know they've been on the needles for a fucking long time but, I don't know, I think I just need to stretch my creativity muscle and make someting completly new. Now, for that, I've seen a couple things that are tickling my fancy but the numero uno thing is the hat that Caroline made for her man in Noro. The Man saw it and made a serious hint - ok, he said it flat out - that he wanted the hat. SO that may prompt me to go the my LYS today (maybe not, it's raining) and pick up a bit of yarn and who knows what'll happen out of it.
About the sweater, I know, I'm subject jumping...but the only thing is that it's sized for a skinny-bitch (I say it with love...really) with a 36' bust which I don't have and calls for some serious resizing BUT, it's a lace pattern...HELP! I'm calling out to all of youz cool knitting people out there for suggestions on how to resize and not just have ribbing, I'd like to have the pattern continue.
Finally - whew! - I want to thank my SP6 for sending me a last minute package with the movie "Living in Oblivion" which is one of the best movies that I've ever seen! I'm so fucking spoiled!
Alright, I'm done...For now!
