All 9 Skeins of it!
I figured it was time for a knitting post. Since I am having one of those days, where I am so
fucking mad all I can see is RED! I need something to keep my mind off all the other shit I should be doing or dealing with. What could be any better than blogging and wasting my time? I guess in someways I am at Knits END!
The yarn came from
Speaking of The Boy! Can he get any cuter than this? He got this awesome clothes from Little Ruler. Our little skater boy!
Here is a scarf I am working on for myself, 90% complete! I got a new cute little hot pink/black jacket and just had to have a scarf to match. It is a pretty easy pattern and just keeps me knitting. I wanted some yarn that is a bit different, can't go wrong with a little Bling Bling! The yarn is Nashua in Ivy, 50% Alpaca/45% Merino/5% Estellina. I am not sure how they call this IVY, to me IVY is green not black. It is hard to tell from the photo but it is black, black, black with a hit of silver non-itchy glitter yarn.
On a really sweet note...
I recently made the Skull cap from SNB for a friend of ours. I really took the time to find the Perfect yarn. Had to be really soft for a bald head but yet a "guy" color. Since I am big fan of natural fibers, I just needed to go to my LYS to molest some yarn. Manos del Uruguay, Cascade, Hand Spun llama, just maybe? The yarn store is the one place I can fondle all the yarn I want, rub it on my face, and through my fingers without looking like a total pervert. Everyone is doing it! I admit it, I am yarn molester! Hands, Face, smell, can’t get enough of it. I finally found what I was looking for, Baby Alpaca in light grey! Perfect? Personally, if I was a bald guy, it would have been my 1st choice too. However, it took me way to long to knit it. It should have been done in a night or two at most. Needless to say, almost 2 weeks later it was done and gift given. He was telling me that he got a compliment on his hat. Awesome! Not only did he tell the lady it was handmade, but that it was Alpaca and really soft. You know a gift is appreciated when they can recite what type of yarn it is. (Remember this is coming from a Man) It really made my day!!!!
knit on and Often!
