it snowed yesterday. i found that very exciting. i made soup.
but before i get side tracked much by work, i must tell you THANKS for all of the comments on the post about knitting from other’s patterns. the conversation in the forums seemed a bit too one-sided for me and you all straightened it right out ;)
now to the work.
another shot here
nighttime reflection hat
modeled shot here
both made with lopi lite and some hand dyed recycled sweater wool. the yellowy one is adult med/large and the brown is medium. these were made a couple of months ago. and i still think, as i did while i was knitting them, i could knit colorwork with semi-solid and hand dyed yarns forever and never get bored. is there anything in particular that you could knit every day and never get bored? i guess hats would be my other thing…
p.s. funny happenings. last night i told some crafty friends that i asked over the blog if anyone had a floor they could lend in columbus and one of them said, ‘you’re braver than me!’ to which i replied, ‘they’re just other fibery people.’ then i got to thinking where i got the idea from, and, of course, my friends in indie bands do it ALL THE TIME. and as ben pointed out. my fibery people can’t be more crazy and probably are less drunk than the people the bands end up staying with. or, at least we’re a slightly more innocent kind of crazy. besides. my friend lauren has agreed to go with me and i’m sure she had a black belt in something. i’m sure.
