I have

New purpose! And a plan!

I have three things to accomplish by the end of the month. They are knitting related. They are as follows:

1. Finish the socks of infinity. I am nearly there, but my resolve is waning. However, I will not give up.
2. Knit a men’s hat. This was supposed to be a Christmas present. It is now March.
3. Knit a bunny suit for a coworker’s impending offspring. I will be knitting it in two pieces, one which is a hoodie with ears, and one which is a pair of hyperbolic baby pants with a detachable tail. I am not giving away any secrets, since I have told her about these things already.

Baby things are awesome because they are small and quick. And the infant will be very small for a while. We had a discussion this morning, attempting to figure out why it is that women like tiny things, and none of us could give a reason. We could, however, give many examples to prove that we do, indeed, gravitate to tiny things.

I have many tiny, useless glass bottles on my buffet in the dining room. I also collect vinyl figurines. I do not care for the large ones.

Keep me to task, bloglandia! The Christmas knitting is getting to the ridiculously overdue point…

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.
