holiday busytime

howdy everybody...the past two weeks have been high-gear knitting as the holidays approach...i've got about nine scarves all done...except for the sewing-in-the-ends part that I always hate--nothing too complicated...a few one-ball faux fur (a yarn called 'splash' that I got at ImagiKnit), and some cotton scarves (i think called 'Sanskrit' at ArtFibers, which I'll probably get more of), and some light fashion scarves ('Baccarat' at ArtFibers)...i thought i'd work on a couple larger projects, so i tracked down some free patterns at LionBrand for shawls, and sent off for the yarn...the one I'm doing now has 85 stitches on size 9s, and a bunch of k2tog-tbl and some slip-k2tog-psso, and even k3tog, but the pattern is cool...it will just take forever, it looks like...not helped when i'm trying to watch CSI in the background...so i may alternate between the shawls (i'll be happy if I get 2 done this season) and some more easy scarves...

Darrel, your hat is so dope!

Your roomie just came over (we were having our Men Who Don't Knit meeting, as you know), and he was wearing a dope-ass hat that you just made!  I'm so glad that you not only made his stupid ass put a hat on his head before he left the house, but that it was such a fashionable and fun one such as your new hat!  I thought to myself, what a great hat...and then it dawned on me that I had seen those colors in a big ball of yarn. 

You like became a badass knitter like overnight.  Keep on rockin it!
