I keep telling myself that I should be working on the jaywalkers, or the sunrise circle, or umm, I don’t know, work! but I can’t stop knitting these, the colors just make me so happy. I’ve even forgiven the tools of the devil, what some of you call “dpn’s”, and I’m already in the middle of the foot. I should be done tonight, yay! The guilty conscience likes that.
oh, there’s been some confusion, maybe, I don’t know. but I didn’t dye this yarn. oh please, I don’t have the patience to come up with a cool striping sequence or to deal with a warping board! both striping yarns, the pureknits and the appletini, were dyed by jess over at yarntini, she has a couple of skeins left in stock now and she’s sending off some yarn for me this weekend. I think she’s done a great job and I couldn’t be happier with the yarn. come on, it makes everyone smile!
sooo, that knitter’s guilt….it isn’t helped by packing up my knitting bag. I still have that first jaywalker to finish, a postcard to make (hint, the lace silk has something to do with it), and my lovely sunrise circle jacket to work on. not to mention the scraps of sock yarn I’ll be swatching. oh, and a hat I promised steph I would finish so I could tell her about the yarn. oops. what happened to my project list? wasn’t I finishing stuff left and right? it feels like I haven’t accomplished anything in a while. this weekend though, I will knit! I’m going to the shore tomorrow and I will become a machine. a pair of socks will be completed (not necessarily a matching pair though!), one side of the jacket (you have to start small) will be done, and some swatches will be ready for some rough housing by the time I come back Sunday night. umm maybe monday, let’s shoot for monday. actually, don’t even hold me accountable. like we say at ‘bitter purl’: keep your expectations low!
to entertain you in the meantime and in honor of amy who’s left a void by getting a new job, here is my weak attempt at:
