(Yes, that Andrea. You’ll ruin the surprise!)
I’m nearly done with the sweater, and here’s what it looks like so far:
The dunny realizes it is too small for the sweater, but wanted to model it anyhow. I am much too large for the sweater so I was happy to oblige.
I am strangely unaffected by the rose color. Normally, I don’t like it (I had my first set of passport photos taken in a sweater much this color, at the age of 13, when I didn’t know any better), but I don’t mind it here. It’s kind of cute.
Woohoo! I’m on a roll! Knitting progress and working camera and all pertinent peripheral parts at once!
I think I might treat myself to a soda.
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.
