Hey, wasn't that the title of that SNL skit? You know, the one where the thoughts are supposed to be all deep and said in that new age voice (I forget who said them - oh wait, I think it was Phil Hartman) but are totally ridiculous? Perhaps my post will be as such tonight!
Here is my pretty argyle scarf as modeled by my middle daughter. She has a future in the modeling biz, don't ya think? ; ) (Is that supposed to be someone winking? I am so not hip with the internet lingo - as evidenced by the use of the word lingo)
Ignore that little piece of black yarn that unwove itself. And ignore the red eye, I thought I had the camera automatically programmed to take care of that!
I only used one skein and a little of each color of Cascade 220, instead of the two skeins called for. The pattern is for a man, and we are not men, we are not even very tall women and two of us are children so I figured a man-length scarf might be kind of over the top.
Oh and look at this :
Once again, I must ask you to ignore the fact that you can't really see what the pin says, so I will just tell you.
It's a little button that says "Knit 'till I die" with two little skull and crossbones and the yarn with the needles through it. Kristinknits got it for me! How cool is she? Love her! Oh by the way, she knit the cutest thing I've ever seen, so make her blog about it. I know she's all busy with that crazy wedding stuff, but she's got a minute or two to spare somewhere I'm sure :)
I'm almost done with the ribbing for the Tangled Yoke Sweater, but I can't manage to get a good picture of it. It's kind of off white, and my pictures all read WHITE with no definition so it looks like a white line on top of whatever I tried to take pictures of it on. Anyway, it's very fun to knit. It's on size 5's which aren't too small, and not to big and unwieldy like, you know, size 15's or something. (I've got tiny little hands although they are a little chubby)
I must finish my sock before my husband comes home. He can't know I've been knitting on this sweater yet, and there is no way he will believe I have made so little progress on the sock if it were my only current project. He 's supposed to be home tomorrow night so I better get movin'. Wish me luck.
