or i've been sniffing too much adhesive. the latter is a pretty safe bet. i've been crafting again!
i was commissioned today for valentine's day cards. valentine's day. what is that? is that when st. peter drove the snakes out of ireland? no, wait, that's st. patty's day. i think i much prefer the pinching and beer holiday to valentine's day. all that sappy love shit. but the crafting? that i do like. here's a sneak peek at what i have so far. titillating, no?
since i felted girl-child's very favorite pair of socks (i know!) i had no choice but to get another pair on the needles but quick! these little lovelies are trekking yarn in colorway 126. you'd think they'd come up with a better name for this wonderful stripey deliciousness! (thanks cam) any suggestions?
there was some worry they wouldn't fit but i was gently prodded to keep knitting. how could i not keep knitting with a new surprise waiting around the next row? i'm a big fan of the self-striping yarn. until i get to the second sock, that is, and drive myself MAD trying to get the damn things to match! i'm determined this time. insanity ensues.
and i'm also sworn never to wash hand-knits in the machine again. sorry, roo.
