My mom asked me once if I ever have the sensation that my hands just need to knit, like they're itchy-twitchy and knitting is the only thing to do.
Last night, after I fixed my spacebar (an involved adventure in which I snapped off both alt keys by accident and subsequently had to fix all three keys), I managed to knit about 10 more rounds of the second boring brown sock while watching the second half of Revenge of the Sith (not my choice). However, this morning I looked at good ol' boring brown sock and I just couldn't do it. Instead, realizing that Daughter is rapidly growing into and out of her clothing and is now wearing 12-month sizes, I cast on for Trellis.
fresh snowfall, fresh project
Yes, it is startitis rearing its ugly head, but whatever. Life is short and Daughter is growing like a weed. This is Sirdar Toddler Aran yarn in a very pretty blue. Our camera is of the not excellent variety and this is the best pic I could get against the snow. I like this yarn and I am hoping and praying there is enough to make this sweater in the 18 month size. The pattern calls for 5 balls of yarn at 98 yards each: 490 yards. I have two skeins of yarn at 258 yards each: 516 yards. Will I make it with only 26 yards to spare? I guess I like a challenge.
And can I just add that when we had Daughter out for dinner last night, she was dressed in pink overalls, and a shirt with pink flowers on it, yet the restaurant staff called her "buddy" and "little guy." Dudes, seriously. Get a clue.
