Oh man, where do I start? Well ok, let’s go straight to brass tacks(is that how they say that?). The Fall Knitty is up!! While I’ll admit nothing this issue really jumps at me screaming, ‘Knit Me!’, I’m VERY pleased that a majority of the patterns will actually FIT me. Truth be told, I can’t attest to that seeing as it seems the majority of them were modeled/demo’d in the smallest sizes. But that’s ok. I’m sure something this issue will get me to warm up to it, sooner or later.
Speaking of progress, I’m about a 3rd of the way into the second Shimmer2 sleeve. I made these sleeves a bit shorter than the first. Sorry, no point in pics just yet. I’ll wait until I’ve joined them to the body.
Have you seen the Fall Vogue Knitting International? It too has a few patterns I’m sure will fit me and I LOVE the basketweave hoodie on page 74!! Of course I’ll be subbing yarns but hey, what’s a broke girl to do? Ok, actually there doesn’t seem to be a retailer who’s actually selling the yarn called for, Nashua Handknits’ Equinox Stripe. Everywhere I look, it’s ‘ coming soon’. And it’s prolly really expensive anyway. Elann, here I come! 🙂
I do have some pictures of the hamster babies.. Yeah, they are 3 weeks old and OMG they are huge! I almost can’t distinguish them from their parents. Who, by the way, are now taking care of them seperately; Batman has the boys with him full time, and Catwoman has her girls. There are 5 of them and 4 of those, respectively. See them? There’s Catwoman and the girls :
Batman and the fellas:
Finally, I was tagged with a meme the other day. I’m sorry but I don’t have answers. And I don’t really like passing them around either. If anyone has questions they’d like to ask to get to know me better, I’ll be more than happy to answer, but not in the form of a questionnaire. They no longer excite me(did they ever?). This is going to be a very full, busy year and I can’t even THINK straight let alone remember 5 of anything. Fingers and toes per hand and foot, and that’s about it. Sorry, guys(and gals!).
