Can't Stay Away
Do you have ANY idea how hard it is to NOT post?! Seriously. And I had so much to post about last night! Not as much as I had on Monday, but still, it's something. Apparently contests are a good way to encourage comments. lol
First and foremost, we have my halfway FO!! Yep! I finished my first Endpaper Mitt, and can I just say how much I love it? Seriously, when I finished it I sat around typing wearing just the one mitt. If you don't believe me, ask my best friend, I made her watch me on webcam. lol Mitten porn? Maybe. ;) And, I ordered some KP Palette in yellow and green (Project Spectrum much?), these will be brighter. The question now is, which one will be the main color? Or should I make these ones like reverse images? Wait, am I getting ahead of myself? Yes, probably. Anyways, one mitten down, the cuff for the second is OTN! These will be finished way before I had originally planned. Apparently the free yarn I got was acrylic, so I can't block the mitt (darn!), which is why I got 100% wool for the second pair. The pic actually links to a better one, I just thought that one fit in better.
Wicked is about 4" into the body and I finally tried it on. The cord wasn't allowing me to at first, it wouldn't go over my shoulders. So I attached an extra bit of cord (gotta love those Denise interchangeables!) and got a picture. Of course, I'd been wearing one of Justin's old sweaters, so I just kind of...um took it off and tried Wicked on with only my sports bra on. lol Who says knitting isn't sexy? I'm so putting this up as my Myspace profile pic. haha I'm thinking of adding a bit of extra length to this top though, because I have a long-ish torso and all.
In the middle of cleaning last night, I found my bag full of fleece and my drop spindle...yeah I spent an HOUR playing with the drop spindle and some leftover pink pencil roving. No clue what I'll do with it yet, I don't think I'll ply it, or maybe I will. Who knows. Or if she has the white, maybe I'll use that to make some Endpaper mitts for my best friend. I keep showing them to her, probably because I'm in love with them (I had a dream about them last night folks...come on) and she is like "Yeah, I can't lie, they are really cute." So yea...that's all for now, I'm off to work on my Endpaper Mitts some more and further the romance. :)
