…because there is actual knitting content in this post! Amazing innit? I know *I* feel dizzy, but that’s pretty usual for me.
First off – I did NOT make this sweater for the Force of Nature – a wonderful knitter in Massachusetts did it for me! She did a fantabulous job- Her finishing work absolutely kicks my butt.
The Force of Nature was not terribly interested in having a good photo taken of herself in the sweater….::::sigh:::: No surprise there – she’s just turned thirteen years old a month ago (the same day the tornadoes came through!).
Next, we have a little crochet project that I finished just today – a steering wheel cover for Big Sarah. This was very very easy and I wonder why I’d never done this before. Here’s the cover before I sewed it onto the steering wheel:
And after I put it onto the steering wheel:
Now here are a few pics of the ENORMOUS socks I made for the Duke of Curl (he turned SIXTEEN years old last week. He will have his driver’s license very soon. I can’t even think about that or I’ll have to go lie down.).
They’ve been worn a lot and washed/dried at least twice and they look great. The fit is not terrific, but I frogged these things at LEAST 4 times and I ain’t doing anymore. Folks, this is tiny yarn knit tightly on on US size ZERO needles for size THIRTEEN feet. I didn’t knit for a WHILE after I finished these – it was like knitting a sweater but not as much fun. The colors are great tho’.
Last but not least, this scarf I’ve been procrastinating about for a year now. It’s for one of my dearest friends. I will see her this weekend in Chicago – YAY! I’m almost done with it – I may make another one but perhaps not out of sock yarn – that’s a LOT of d#$% stitches.
And I do think Boris makes a wonderful model……Natasha wanted in on the gig for some reason.
So very dashing!
Now the batteries are low in the camera, and I’m tryna get ready to go to a singing thing in Chicago this next weekend, so that’s it fer now; happy knitting to u all!
