Taking a quick break from knitting like a fiend
Mrmph I joined a Harry Potter-inspired sock yarn club I found on Etsy...and there better be a Snape colorway. *bangs fist on table* I loved the other HP-inspired colorways in her shop, so even if not, it should be scrummy. I was actually tempted to buy the James Potter colorway because it was so pretty, but I was afraid I would commit yarn abuse if I did, best not to let that happen.
Anyway, the grumpy hat is almost done. I am on my last ear flap! Then I just have to impale my cabled enemies, make the tassel and weave in my yarn ends (my least favorite part) oh and block, but I've got to look up blocking wool because I don't want to accidentally felt it.
BUT I will prolly post some pics soon! I wish I could finish it tonight, but I just don't see that happening. Maybe tomorrow when I am awake. I want to wear teh hat! Oh and start my next project, the Hemlock Ring blanket
. I already bought the yarn for it, the fabulous and sturdy Cascade Ecological Wool in a charcoal gray. Big lace knits...fun!
*rubs hands together*
I probably shouldn't do that, they might fall off after all this knitting.
Also, my legs look like they have been chewed on by werewolf pups. And my torso is just covered in love scratches from my cat, Penelope. My legs are from a different source, however, and they're so bad that I had to wear pants out in the 88 degree heat today to cover up my wounds. My mother practically insisted. I tried to point out that I'm ugly enough as it is, so who cares, but in the end, I wore the jeans. I try to keep Teddy well-stocked in dog bones, but apparently human ankles are tough to resist.
