Let's ease into this adult content thing k?
Last week was another of those weeks from hell on the job front so not so much blogging. Things should be settling down now though so hopefully I can update more often. I even missed sending my update for the Sweater a Month Knitalong dangit. I'll have to make sure to do that this week since I've made quite a bit of progress on Mermaid. Photos of her later this week.
I spent a good portion of Saturday working on the 2nd Sanquhar glove. Just about done with the thumb gusset. I hope to have these done this weekend. Whew! I feel like I've been knitting on these things forever.
Next up on the needles for Paul are some Retro Rib socks from "Favorite Socks". I finally wound up that Cider Moon Haiku I bought last fall and cast them on to give me incentive to finish those dratted gloves. Can you fall in love with a yarn? If so, I am completely head over heels for this Haiku stuff. So much so that I bought some to make myself a pair of impossibly frivolous socks. You know you're hopelessly addicted when you don't bat an eyelash at spending almost $90 to make yourself some socks! Paul saw the beginning of the socks before going on his 2 week business trip and he really likes the colors. I decided to do these toe up instead of cuff down as the pattern is written so I can make sure to use as much of the yarn as possible.
Friday night brought the finishing of Jen's Scarf. I've converted her! Now she wants me to knit her the Leg Cozies from "Lace Style".
Pattern: Lace Trimmed Scarf, Vogue Knitting Scarves Two on the go!
Yarn: Misti Alpaca
And now to that Adult Content. If you are under the age of 18, please close your browser lol.
I mentioned in my last post about March goals that I wanted to knit that Lacy Thong from the Staff Projects of the Spring 07 IK. Only took a couple of American Idol episodes to finish and it will look quite nice with the frilly nightie finished in February.
Pattern: Lacy Thong, Interweave Knits Web Pattern
Yarn: Schachenmayr Catania
Earlier this week, Yarn Harlot had the (nope I'm not going to type it, you fill in the blank yourself) to post what I now believe every Rockin' Sock Club member has been thinking. Paul and I had snorted, guffawed, and made tons of bad jokes about the looks of the first sock off the foot. He keeps saying that his new "willy warmer" looks like it will be quite snug LOL.
I kept knitting along, thinking that surely once I got to the heel and started up the leg that this little lookalike thing would fade away .......
...not only did it not fade away, I think it got worse!!
