Cold..... - Random babblings of a fiber-obsessed nutcase

About Cold.....

Previous Entry Cold..... Feb. 9th, 2010 @ 06:33 am Next Entry
The "winter weather" that was supposed to hit...hasn't. It's COLD (currently 28*....when I got up an hour and a half ago, it was 30*), it's wet (it rained ALL. Damn. Day. Yesterday), but the roads appear to be clear and (relatively) accident-free. Right. Betcha there's a bunch of idiots out there about the time I hit the road. :sigh:

I feel like I am making very little progress on the Never-ending Cardigan. I knit and knit and knit AND knit...and still have 3" to go on the sleeve. I'm itching to start something new, something riotous with color, something *new*.

Interweave didn't help - yesterday I received my copy of "Knitting Traditions"...on the cover? Beautiful, colorful, Turkish socks. :sigh: Add that to the "Fancy Feet" book I bought the other day, and it's a receipe for the knitting-doldrums. (The magazine? WORTH the money! Full of beautiful knitted projects from all over the world - the Yarn Harlots' current sweater? The Bohus "Wild Apple" is IN THERE. I could totally knit one.....if I wanted to. :grin: Without having to buy the kit. :lol:)

I am craving a new pair of socks. A colorful pair. A *stranded* pair. :sigh: Soon as I finish sleeve #2 I will CO for a pair of brightly-colored, wild socks. To take the edge off before starting *my* sweater. (Which won't be as mind-numbing as the Cardigan - for one thing, it's 2 colors; they're knit in strips, and I can change up what color/pattern I knit so I don't get so bored. Hopefully)

I need to get a photo of the RH loom - Sweet Geek is having fun weaving lace. He just called me - he wants to warp up some placemats or something. :lol: Good think I have a placemat kit around here.....:snicker:

Gotta go feed critters!

Knitting Traditions

thanks for the heads-up. I just ordered the magazine as I'd like to make that bohus too but don't want to pay for the kit.

Still lovin' my chickens and their eggs. Hope all is well down there in TX.

Re: Knitting Traditions

You're welcome! I was kinda surprised - the ad copy didn't mention it. :grin:
