Something went screwy in my purse and I had to pull out 2 nights of knitting. I spent an hour trying to figure it out, but I couldn't see the issue. So now, I'm back at the join of the front and back. K2tog at the ends didn't seem to make things even in this darn pattern and was getting confusing, so I'm just keeping the pattern as-is until I see some of it attached. Then I can decrease a bit to make it more smooth, maybe. It is under my armpit anyway, so why should I care?

But I'm still grumpy after losing 3 or more inches of work. So maybe I won't decrease. Hah! Photos? I don't have no stinking photos! (I'll do some for the next entry, promise!)

Oh hai, a Clapotis

So it is finally finished and not raining. How cool is that? I love the colours on this, even if it is a replica wannabe of Kims. But hey, she doesn't mind! I do suggest doing this pattern once, twice if you like to knit insanely boring things.

Orangina is coming along. Slowly mind you, I only knit a few rows a day. Had work drama so I was too stressed to knit. Figures. I'm knitting the front and back at the same time, then joining them after 8-9 inches and working in the round.

It is about this time in a project (you know, the beginning) that I plan my next, but nothing has called out to me yet. Hrm. I do have a lot in my queue, so its not like I'm short of projects, just haven't chosen yet. Maybe I just need to buy new yarn for inspiration ;)

So I finished my Clapotis on Sunday night. It was still wet this am! I might have to toss it in the dryer soon, sheesh. Also, it needs to go in the wash anyway, since my hands are literally BLUE from the dye. Good thing I don't wear light colours ;) I'll post pics when it is finally dry. Sheesh.

I know its stupid

So, I think I'm going to make the Vegan wrapped in Scarf eventually, but I'm not in love with the jagged chart. So what's a girl to do? Uh, do it in alpaca and felt it. Hahah. SO not vegan.

Then again, my friend Tinny/Christine from SF makes felted bacon scarves and she's vegan. Obviously she crafts in wool, so alpaca isn't that bad, eh? Plus, I think this sucker just is begging to be felted. In a nice bulky yarn it shouldn't take too long...

Oh, ya, I'd knit but I painted my nails this evening. Haha. One day, I'll finish my Clapotis. Hope to have it done by Sunday evening.
