At last. My brain is officially fried, so this is a smattering of things that are cool yet don’t require a lot of thought to share.
After much anticipation (on my part, at least), here is a better shot of the moustachioed me, on Saturday at DragonCon:
Yay. A coworker said that with that moustache, I’d make a good drag king. If I were to be a drag king, I’d so wear a moustache. If I were a dude, I’d probably sport one, too, impeccably waxed. They’re so snazzy.
And now that I’m working on a second sock, and doing pretty decent progress, I am trying to decide what to do with the yarn in my stash (not all of it, but a skein or two).
It is between this:
Handmaiden Casbah, in the Rainforest colorway
Blue Moon STR heavyweight, Valkyrie colorway.
I want to do something delicious and amazing with one (or both). I also have some handspun from Baobh what needs knitting.
Thoughts? I have some patterns in my home library, and then there’s the New Pathways for Sock Knitters stuff (which I will get to, oh yes), but I’m open to suggestions.
Oooh.. that STR Valkyrie is gorgeous! I was gifted STR Lenore & the pattern last year but I’m not sure if I want to use such gorgeous yarn for socks… when I mostly wear boots during the winter.
Have you thought about knitting a jack o’lantern?
Not as of yet, no. I can’t wear that (and it’s all about me, don’t you know?)
How about this?
Basic, but fitted in a really neat way. Not quite Cat Borhdi, but I think easier to wrap your brain around .
Oooooh. That’d be great for the Jitterbug! I can always count on you for awesome ideas. Thanks!
Except that I didn’t post the Jitterbug. Oops! Well, it’s still true, and it’d also go great with the Valkyrie.
It’d be a quick knit, too, I think.
