A fuzzy feet along!
Original impetus here
My first pair (if i like knitting em I'm making a few gifts out of them)
will be in Cascade 220 (9432 quatro) which is an alluring combo of blues and greens.
This picture.. like the project is fuzzy.
I might cast on for them tonight, or I may get lost in "what my tivo recorded this weekend" depending on how i feel.
This brings my "active projects that I can remember offhand" to...
my Irish Hiking scarf (which I will finish in the next few days!)
A long forgotten but soon to be revived silk garden Clapotis
a Ribbed hat in a rust colored "Extra"
a pair of delicious Koigu socks.
And an Ipod cozy for a coworker (which i really should have finished by now)
Bath mitts! Delicious wonderful Bath mitts .
My Secret pal gave me the Irish hiking scarf pattern and yarn, and the bath mitts patten and yarn and I must say again how much I enjoy her intiution on what I will enjoy knitting.
Oh yeah, one more thing
Saw Jon Stewart on Friday night in Stamfort CT.
He was GREAT! Very funny.
I can't help but be amused though, at the fact that I used to see him in comedy clubs in the late 80s for a 2 drink minimum, and now pay exorbitant sums to see him in a theater.
But he did put on a good show, and a long one at that, he gave us roughly 90-120 min :)
I got tagged by Pepperknit
so here goes
- What is your all-time favorite yarn to knit with?
Whichever I knit with last ;) Seriously these days its Koigu KPPPM. Though I still love Karabella Aurora 8
2. Favorite needles?
Addi Turbos for everything but socks.
3. What's the worst thing you ever knit?
I have a few truly hideous scarves that I have hidden someplace
4. Favorite knit pattern?
Oy.. I’m still too new to answer this I think – but I’d probably be lost without a good sock pattern.
5. Most valuable knitting technique?
I’ll second Pepperknit’s vote for the felted join.
6. Best knit book or magazine?
I love Interweave Knits, and I learned a whole lot from the first Stitch ‘N Bitch book

My first real one - Fuzzy Feet! (I did a clapotis one but flaked on it

So many! Yea I Knit
Crazy Aunt Purl
The Crochet Dude

and everyone in my sidebar. Plus some more. Don't be offended if i forgot you, I just dashed off the first six (my lucky number) that I could think of.
A special mention for "The music of what happens". Not a knitblog per se but she taught me to knit
9. Favorite knitwear designer?
No idea really - I like a lot of things.
My black and pink Crystal Palace Iceland hat that I made over the weekend. It may be brand new but it’s kept me from having to turn my heat on yet!
