I just bought some baby alpaca yarn. Mainly because I want to see how it knits up for me. So far I like it. It is definitely a very soft yarn. Making a Celtic Cable Scarf. Expensive though. $17 a for a 126 yard skein.
I like that an astronaut took knitting needles as part of his personal "crew preference". Here's a bit of physics that is a bit different from the physics of yarn. Just a fun thing to think about.
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.
I sometimes will get a gig driving somebodies car from Connecticut to wherever. Sort of a quick side cash pick up. While waiting at the Fort Lauderdale airport for my return flight after one such job ( I had a few hours before my flight) I decided to pull out the Irish Hooded scarf I was working on for my roommate.
Before I was tricoteur and I was a lot of pictures ???
and yes my inglish is veryyyy badddddddddd lol
Just read Scotty's entry about his boss' reaction to knitting. Here is another one to share with all of you:
