Okay, try 2 after the unsuccessful update try last night. Sooo, where do I start?
I started one of the Jess Hutch bears at my brother's house over Easter. Somehow I have miraculously gotten my niece and nephew to be okay with me knitting when I'm around them...in fact it went something like this:
me: Hey MPC, would you wear a knit hat with something cool on it?
mpc: YES!!! Can you start now?
me: well, no, but I can start as soon as I get the yarn!
beebs: Is that there (the bear body) for me?
(it wasn't, b/c who knew she'd want one!)
me: um...did you want one?
beebs: YES. KEEP knitting! HURRY UP!
Even if I took a break to get a sip of water she'd tell me KEEP KNITTING!!! Ahhh, yay!
In the meantime, I did go to the yarn store in my neighborhood that is selling off all of the items due to retirement...and I started on my nephew's hat!
Ooooh, I sure hope it fits his head! So I read an article about intarsia and knitting in the round on Knitty, curious...I am knitting this by stranding inside the hat...we'll see how it works. I suppose I can always redo it if needed (read, if stranding has made the hat too tight), right?
Sockapalooooza4 signups are open now! After missing the last one, I am SO in for this round! Sign up will ya? It's so fun to make and receive socks!
Oh yes, and I need to order the zipper for the Simple. Man, and I need to order the safety eyes...so much to do, so little time...I need to pack my bag for workout tomorrow and it's already past my bedtime. argh.
