knitting and the life I almost have around it

all wrapped up

sorry, there are only so many puns about wraps and the finishing thereof that one can make (see previous). Ignore the slightly psychotic facial expression, my mother refused to click until i smiled and i was in the process of telling her why it didnt matter if i smiled or not when she got me! wench!
it's done, it's over. and as my mother so kindly pointed out this one is a far far better colour for me than the beige-y one i knit before. oh well. i dont care. its over. i should probably wash and block it but i think i will just steam block and then send it tomorrow... and then i will be free of the green! and i can knit my new
cleckheaton country silk cardigan (its so beautiful, ToD picked up the yarn for me today and i am starting tomorrow night on friendsday wednesday abc comedy, hurrah! before anyone asks, its the plain cardigan which is the second picture, and the yarn is colour 7. thanks ToD!!!!!!!).

oh and fellow SnBers? i have one entire ball and one scrappy partial ball of this yarn remaining - i dont want to see it anymore, first in best dressed. requests on behalf of other knitters count, but you got to be the first :p

bumped into
monica today at uni! sadly outed myself by recognising her socks first. she appears to be succeeding where i failed and has already convinced four people to bring needles and yarn to the next tute! go monica go!

and i have rather alot of richard III to read so i shall scoot... cant wait to see y'all at SnB on thursday!

    Well done! *claps* It looks FANTASTIC!

    I mean... It looks horrible and you should send it away right now. The colour doesn't suit u at all! You're mother's crazy! And everyone else who thinks the colour's fabulous is also crazy!

    Wow! It looks awesome! Good luck with all the reading. (hint: try to find it on Project Gutenberg so you can read online, so that you can knit while reading and hit spacebar or page down with a finger. Much easier than balancing a book while knitting.)

    LOVE it!! the colour is amazing, and I do like it much better than the beige one.

    Sooooo cool! Love the greeny cardi, and it looks just as lovely in the colour you were wearing the other day (latte?)


    And yay for seeing you at uni! Yup, I'm a knitting pusher already, can't help myself. I hope a couple of them do remember to bring wool and needles!!!

    i like the edging on it, dont know what its called but it does look cool. also that colour green is same as my car, one of my favorites.

    good luck with the 3rd dick, i am still snoring my way through paul's appraisals of cats eye. i now see what you mean (it really is fascinating)

    What Reeny said. Although I REALLY do like the cream one better. Yay for new yarn. See you tomorrow. :)

    Beautiful Spidey - well done for actually getting it done - so hard when you know it's not YOURS, but is destined for another *sob* (sounds like the basis for a weird knitting romance novel ;)

    I love that colour! I want to knit something that colour! *sigh* noted and added to my 'do it' list. Great job :)
