Workin’ it Wednesday September 30, 2009

MCC-1-5535Just running off to work — though I’d snap a couple of shots of the Mondo Cable Cardi with ye olde cap sleeves —

This is worn over a bog standard cotton T-neck (with de riquer jeans). Wish you could see my shoes ;p From the side, you see it isn’t very trapeeezy. It flares ever so slighty…

It’s a little too chilly Tuesday September 29, 2009

Please! Don’t make me turn on the furnace! It’s still September!!!

This morning I am wrapped in my fuzzy-wuzzy bathrobe drinking hot tea like there is no tomorrow. I will not capitulate! I will not surrender, even though I have goose bumps and my nose is FREEZING.

Time to really get going on some wooly knitting, eh?

I’ve actually had to go to the frog pond with my wooly WIP this weekend — started a cool YANK from some Rowan Aran Tweed, but alas, the ball-band lied. Could not get gauge and had to rippit.

So meanwhile, I’m still working on my Cotton Ease (taupe) Twist:


So far, two sleeves, Left Front, and Back ribbing, all done!

I’m at the point where I can start cabling, my very favorite thing to do, on the Back section and it should go much faster from here on out. I always get a little stalled on edge ribbing and save it for some interesting TV where not much attention has to be paid.

Fab TV-to-Knit-By: ABC’s Castle! Not a lot of brain cells need to be fully engaged to get it and there’s some manly eye-candy for you: Nathan Fillion (who btw, played Joey Buchanan on “One Life to Live” awhile back. I was trying to figure out just where I’d seen him before!!)

YO, Joey. How YOU doin’ ? Lookin’ good ;p

Monday Morning Mirth September 28, 2009

  Monday Morning Mirth  

Because we are a slave to fashion, we can’t help but try to keep up with the Trends!

But when a Trend is careening the wrong way down a one-way street to nowheresville, we gotta just shake our heads and cry “Uncle!”.

You, dear reader, decide, which is least offensive:

Fall Winter Trends
Leather Clothing
Chunky Knits
Ripped Tights
One-Shouldered Anything
Ripped Jeans
Military Fashion free polls
