No, really it is.

I love things like this.

You know what is also awesome? The second of the Super Secret projects (well, it was the first, but then I finished the second one, which was the tea cozy, and now it’s the second). I’m well on the way to finishing the first and largest piece of it, and am feeling pretty good about that. I’m also to the foot part of the Rivendell socks, and have all my knitting things in order, and found a hidden stash of cabling needles and stitch markers last night (they’re the cheap plastic/aluminum ones I got when I was first learning to knit, but hey, they work), and plan on teaching myself to use a drop spindle tomorrow, if the mood strikes me. I have a couple of bits of learning roving, so if I screw up while I’m learning, the husband will still have his scratchy wool gloves. And on that topic, why is it that he chooses the roughest, least comfortable wool for this project? I showed him a good deal of soft, lovely wool that I’d gladly dye for him, and he still chose the scratchy stuff. I suppose it’s better than mangy dead rabbit (and those of you who knit on Sundays at Knitch know what I’m talking about), but still. Ah, well. It must be that boy thing. He also likes the idea of re-upholstering everything in the house in faux alligator, so at least he’s consistent (I told him it would be awesome if he used the alligator to upholster the car seats).

When my camera is working again, I will most likely post photos. I am going to see if it can be fixed, and if not, I will then try to convince myself to purchase a giant fancy Canon SLR with equally fancy lenses. Until then, perhaps it’s time to dust of the old film camera.

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.

    And if those two needles are DPNs (since you need at least four for any given sock project), then that’s especially devious. I approve.

    You know you want to join the DSLR can’t-go-anywhere-without-a-great-big-camera-bag club… come on, convenience is over-rated.

    Hobbycraft are doing a joint awesome and evil promotion near us, a free pair of aluminium needles with every two balls of yarn. If that’s not an invitation to procrastination, the only thing left is to sell only the first half of all their patterns.
