I wore them to work today to take pictures on the T in the natural light. It was hard to take them off and put them away and remind myself they’re not staying with me!! I made one little mistake on the right one with cable direction, but I’m not telling where it is! I am soo going to have to make myself a pair when my Christmas push is over.
So in the spirit of stash busting I began knitting Christmas gifts that used yarn that I already have. I have to say- what’s the fun in that? I started Knucks from Summer 2006 Knitty, and they are hard! I have done just one thumb, but I’m trying to do all of the fingers to start with so on the second hand it won’t seem like such a big job. I was going to make them for Ben with a red and silver strip and to say FOOT BALL on the knuckles. Is this silly? Maybe not. I was thinking whatelse I would put on gloves for Ben- fine guy, digs golf, base ball- none of these seemed to be as good at foot ball. hmmm…
Also- I am about to start formentioned blanket for grandma. Lizard Ridge from Knitty Fall 2006. It is made with Noro Kureyon, and I was planning on doing it with peruvian wool that I have left over from last Christmas in a million colors, but I don’t know if it would look as nice- so I might knit one square tonight and see where it goes from there.
My silver pendant is still waiting to be fired! I’m planning on doing it tonight, but first I have to clean my studio because there are A LOT of flamable things just hanging about. And I’ve been a little nervous about the whole firing thing. I have to find my saftey goggles. Can’t wait to clean my studio- see? Autumn cleaning at its best!
