knitting and the life I almost have around it

and again

hello again (i have had a sleep since the last post so try not to judge me... it's uni break!)

As some of you may have predicted, i lost my drive to.. leave the house today. this may or may not be due to the smegging jo sharp silkroad aran- this is THE NICEST yarn i have ever knit with... it's got CASHMERE in it people! i am in heaven and then suddenly its 1.30pm and i cant be bothered brushing my hair into a state worthy of walking downtown. so yes.
but here is the so-far-ness of the sherpa stealth scarf (inspired in part by the great vid lent to me by karen - will bring it along tonight, promise!). illusion knitting rocks :p
boring scarf?
not-so-boring scarf. Sherpa has a bit of a pirate obsession going on. you would never have guessed if i hadnt told you eh?

oh and the socksual healing socks for my boss' ill mother. i could have gotten halfway through the second foot last night but the only other heel im on at the moment is black and i figured this yarn shows the heel turning in a much clearer way - and whats a few days delay really? theres only so hard i have to push myself - its not like she knows im knitting them for her, and they have only taken 8 days to get this far anyway. thanks again to Taph for the yarn - it simply radiates get-well-ness. And i love the cable-rib sock pattern. LOVE IT.and i think that be all for now :) i'm having a massage this arvo so if im a bit spacey at SnB thats why. and dont frown at me like that, my shoulder has been giving me trouble and the Dr TOLD me i had to have lots of massages so there. nyer nyer nyer!

see you sweet things this evening!
knit on!

    Love the pirate scarf. Very cool - where did you get the pattern? Or did you make it up yourself (this is the first time I've visited your blog so I don't know the history yet). I'm eagerly awating the release of Pirates of the Caribbean II tomorrow and wish I had a scarf like that to wear. Hmmmmm.....HOW fast can I knit and still do my job.... darn job :(

    So much for knitting monogomay ;). Still that scarf is looking pretty bloody good - way to go Spidey.

    Thanks for the sock-assistance last night Spidey. I intend to have a turned heel of my own to show you next time. Cool scarf, too!

    Was great to see you and Sherpa last night - and both so happy - hmmm, I wonder if you're suited to each other? LOL!

    Amazing scarf - I'm going to have to actually knit something with this technique to 'get it' - mere words haven't done it for me yet. All tricky and whatsit.

    And beautiful socks too, but you didn't me to tell you that - you ALWAYS make delicious socks :)

    Hello :)

    Thanks for letting me know about the not-yet-scarf pattern. I will keep checking in to see what else you're up to. I'm not QUITE at the point of designing my own stuff - but that's because of a high-school-math-phobic-graph paper-fear. I'll get over it sooner or later.

    Saw Pirates II last night (12:01 showing. Not sure if it's out in Australia but would recommend it - not brilliant or anything, but good fun)

    Happy Friday!
