Last night I posted that I was going to knit my handspun Corriedale into a sweater based on the sweater pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Shortly after posting that statement, I remembered that last year I had started writing a pattern for a pullover with feather and fan around the hem and the bottom of the sleeves. And decided I would use that pattern for my Corriedale.
So I shall. Knitting will commence tonight (hopefully). Can you stand the excitement?
I do have a lot of crappy house-worky type things to do tonight as well. Doing laundry, picking up the big chunks and disposing of them, and other assorted grueling tasks. I wish I could train Lucy to perform some of these chores, but no doubt she would feel that they were beneath her. As indeed they are.
Oh, and the scarf I showed you last night? Ripped that mother out. Yuh-huh. I had started knitting it (in waffle stitch) on US 9 needles and it didn’t seem quite right. The fabric was too dense for my liking. I started it again on the morning commute on US 10s, and am much happier with my results.
Blah Blah Blah
Travelling through the knitblog world I see that a lot of people have a case of the blahs. I’m no exception. Feeling particularly blah these days, thank you very much. January seems like such a gruesome month, followed by the equally gruesome February. And March is often not much better.
And in my infinite wisdom, I am embarking on an off-white sweater after finishing . . . an off-white sweater. Uh . . . think much?
I’ve done no spinning since Sunday afternoon. I’ve been so gol-durned tired this week. The strain of going to work every day, no doubt. But next week will be a good one. Monday is a holiday, I’ll be at work Tuesday and Wednesday, we get Thursday off for Inauguration Dal, and I’m taking Friday off. Wheeeeeee!
Here’s Something Creepy
A kind cyber-bud alerted me to this eBay auction.
If you read through the description, you’ll find that she lists all sorts of free patterns that she is selling a list of links to. (Yipes, I ended with a preposition.) And she is offering one live link to show you what sort of things you get when you buy her list. The live link in the auction description is to my Fearless Fair Isle charts. Or rather, it was. I renamed the charts page and her link now links to a page that says “Not available.”
While I guess she isn’t really doing anything wrong, I took exception to her using my free pattern to advertise something she’s selling.
What do you all think?
UPDATE: The seller changed the link to the Red Lipstick site after I posted this blog entry. Whatta loser!
