Thought SOMEONE might be interested in seeing where my hard work has gone. ‘Cause we all know it sure ain’t been housework! This place is a hell-hole! My bathroom is scaring me. But that’s neither here nor there. Right here, right now, to quote Jesus Jones (Hullo! Showing my age. y’all!),is this FAAAAAABULOUS blanketa. Blanketa is not a Spanish word, but it should be. Say it out loud. See how nicely it flows? Can you tell I’ve had coffee tonight?
Don’t tell me that don’t look good. I will hit your mother in the mouth, sucka. To date I’ve made 25 of these squares. That’s 55 to go. I may get suicidal if I dwell on that number too long. This will be an outside edge. I plan on making a duplicate of this stripe for the other outside edge so that it will match. I haven’t got the inner color scheme worked out yet, it’s just what I can find in the BIG BOX ‘O CRAP YARN that I received from my husband’s business partner. He obtained said box from his dad’s old lady girlfriend who decided she liked drinking more than knitting. Can’t say I blame her at this point. At least if my wrists suffer the repetitive strain, my liver will still function! Silver lining, gotta keep looking for it, kids. Next post I will take a picture of the box. It’s so big you dive in it. I wouldn’t recommend it, though. It is pretty musty. First task after blanket is all sewn up is to WASH THE HOLY HELL out of it. This blanket is going to be huge. The original pattern called for some type of cotton yarn on size 6 needles. I’m making mine on size 10 using standard Red Heart type yarn. It’s already as long as me and super warm. Just what I need for my 80 year old house this winter.
We had a knitting get together tonight at Teapouro. I’m finding the more I hang out with Dee Anna the more we are scarily alike. As in that’s a good thing. Someone has to keep the snark torch lit. We are the girls to do it. Was great to see everyone else. We have a good group. If you’re in Lawrence, and want to knit with us, shoot us a message! We would love to have you, provided you can hang.
Listening to the Crystal Skulls Blocked Numbers album right now. I would encourage you to obtain a copy. It is SOOOO good.
Peace out, sisters!
