Little Purple Riding Hood

Knitta in the hood.

Ka-ZAM! CPH is finished!

You'd think that arguing logic with engineers would be fairly straightforward. It is not. It is inordinately painful and involves much hand-waving.

And if I didn't have to be politically correct, it would involve finger waving as well.

Happy made-up-corporate-sponsored holiday, y'all.

Gotta go...

I think these arm cozies are going to have to be recycled. I *love* the yarn, but the cozies? Not so much. These only go up just past the elbow on the model. Can you see how big they are? I had to put them on OVER my long sleeve shirt just to get it to stay up. *sigh*

Frog. Frog. Frog.

Not the weather kind, the knitting kind.

Speaking of weather, it's been quite pleasant the last few days.

Hmm. I think I will knit this yarn up into a sleeveless turtleneck. It's getting towards spring... just about the time I want to bare my arms to get some sun, but not freeze my scrawny booty off. And with Debbie Bliss super chunky cashmerino - what better than a chunky, super-warm cashmerino sleeveless turtleneck!? Ahh, Debbie Bliss, how I love thee...

Of course, that also means I'm likely going to have to buy another skein or two of yarn. Which means I get to go yarn shopping! Hooray!!

I am a knitting MACHINE.


Photo is seriously crapalicious, but my battery ran out as it was taking this and it didn't flash. Oh well.

But my raglan is finished! Yay! I think if I use this pattern again I'll make some adjustments - add some ribbing along the sides to fit it better. I'll probably use a different yarn as well. I just love the colors on this though. :D

I have made progress on my CPH - the left front is almost done. I also finished my arm warmer thingys, but the photo will have to wait until I can find my battery charger. They're a bit too big and a bit too chunky but so so so warm! I made the one size fits all, thinking, okay, I'm "all", right? Nope. I am the size of a 14 year old. My skinny arms are swimming in these things. Perhaps some ribbons at the top...
