Whew, Friday.

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:

Rainforest by you.

Handmaiden Casbah, in the Rainforest colorway

or this

Valkyrie by you.

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.

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.

    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.

  2. Have you thought about knitting a jack o’lantern?

  3. How about this?

    Basic, but fitted in a really neat way. Not quite Cat Borhdi, but I think easier to wrap your brain around .
