I SO love that blog... You Knit What?? It's hysterical. And I have to agree with almost everything they choose as being ridiculous. But I have to take exception to their view on this hat. I think this hat is adorable. I'd knit this for my little niece. She's 3. It's cute. What's wrong with this hat? Maybe I should be asking what's wrong with me instead. ? I noticed that they also have Debbie Bliss's Marilyn sweater on there. I liked that sweater too. Until I searched blogs to see if anyone made it and they were all UGLY.... didn't even look like the same sweater.
I did swatch the orange handspun last night for Kepler. It turned out a tad small. So, I'm thinking, since every other fitted sweater I ever knit myself turned out big enough to fit 4 people in it with me, with those swatches totally on gauge, maybe I should just go for it. I can always give it to Cate if it turns out too small.
I totally have "startitis" to begin a new big project. I'm just going to have to give in to it when I get the cashmere scarf finished. Why torture myself? I can still work on the Christmas knitting too. I have visions of myself knitting at 3:30 in the morning on Christmas Day trying to get it all done.
My friends are putting together a NYC bus trip for the first week of December... now that will be some major quality knitting time on that bus. I can kick butt on that trip. And maybe find these places that I've been dying to visit.
My friends will be pulling their hair out. They don't knit. They don't get it.
Hey, we should get a knitter's bus trip to New York together. Check this site out:
Oh, man. We could have a ball. (Well, actually lots of balls.) Ha Ha.
