Some things I really Like

STIRL. It’s a good new acronym for KTILT (especially since I’m plagiarizing from Gala Darling’s blog if I use the latter, and I feel bad about that).

1. Tiny little monkeys. I don’t know why, but I do. Like this one:

I mean, seriously. How could you not fall in love?

2. Cotton.

Yeah, yeah. I know. It doesn’t stretch like wool, it’s not warm like wool, etc. I don’t care. I love the way the fabric it makes feels when you’re done knitting a project. It’s marvelous and smooth and the colors are awesome.

3.Baroque patterns, when used in knitted things.

I found a website a few months back that was selling sweaters knit with these sorts of patterns, only in mind-blowing color combinations. For example, there would be a cardigan with a pattern like the one above, knit in deep turquoise and lime green, and it was stunning. I can’t find the website again, but I’m still inspired. I’ll post it if I can locate it. (Image from the Sidney Ann Etsy shop)

And that’s it for this week. It’s been a little weird, since I had a bad cold at the beginning of the week and didn’t do much of anything except sit at home and try to breathe.

Next week will be awesome, I swear.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
