There are some projects that are just silly, and tell the world that to us, the process of knitting is sometimes more important than actual practicality. In that vein, I present the Netbook Cozy. :)
It does look cozy though, don't it?
What to do with that Kureyon that didn't stripe nicely? Make a Lite Brite scarf!
I have a habit of starting new projects when I stll have others on the needles. Then later (just like letting a room get messy and doing a massive cleanup) I feel the need to finish things. The first on the list was the socks I started this spring and sort of forgot about. Since I had yarn leftover from my sweater fiasco, I decided to make the toes from it.
Extra explanatory notes for language geeks.
1) Turkish is one of those languages that not lots of foreigners really try to learn. Result: Turks don't often get to see their language mangled in big, official places (a la "Ingrish") like we do. Yet the general perception is that "English is easy," and if you have gotten your Level 3 whatever, you now know English.
So I finished my sweater (Jared Flood, Brownstone). It turned out enormous. Not so much in length but around, where the gauge was spot on. It was like a tent. I'm 6'2", not exactly skinny, but there was maybe 8 inches of "ease," to put it euphemistically.
Came across this today as I was watching Graham Norton clips. :)
This appeared in yesterday's "Zaman" newspaper. Interesting that it was considered unusual enough to make the news. :)
So, when I was back in Seattle, I was talking to a very nice guy in a yarn shop about various things, and somewhere mentioned that I wanted to try my first sweater but was trying to get up my courage. He told me "if you've done socks, you already know most of the techniques."
Well maybe, but construction is full of surprises!
