100th Post!


I made it! 200, here I come. Ha. (I told Dawn this, and she said that she’d hit 100 months ago, and it took the wind out of my sails a little, but I’m still excited)

In the 99th post, I set up a contest for some unspecified (but cool) prize, and it’s still unspecified, so let’s hold off for another week, since I think knowing what you’re getting is a pretty darn good motivator.

And as promised, here’s the next photo in the installment of photos of the Super Secret project (#2):

It’s not going to be finished this evening. I got all excited last night when I bound off the stitches, even though it looked really funny and narrow and not like it should, but I was still pretty happy, and then I read the pattern and saw that I had only knit half of it. Oh. So that’s why it went so fast. Heh.

I’m knitting the rest over the course of the next two weeks. However, I did alter the pattern to include striping and a larger size, so it’s still an accomplishment, albeit a half-finished one. Trust me, though, it will be excellent when it’s done, and the second half is going to be as nice as the first.

I should probably learn to read directions, though.

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.
