The wedding was a resounding success, and my dear friend Andy has pledged his life to a wonderful woman. I wish them many years of love and happiness!

Wherefore art thou?

I must say, after that behemoth of a project, I'm feeling rather... uninspired. I have enough stash to knit around the world and back (egads. wait till you SEE what's in my stash now.) and I've been perusing Ravelry and finding a few cute patterns, but nothing that I must cast on for NOW.

Come to think of it, the only moment of emotion during my Ravelry hunt was when I found a rather cute baby pattern on a weirdly deformed baby, until I discovered that the aforementioned deformed baby was under a smudge on my screen and it was actually quite a cute baby.

Other than that, meh.

Mojo, oh mojo, what has happened to thee?

I really really hope

That the recipients of this gift are not reading my blog. I hope. Hope hope hope. Because here she is:
Pattern: Girasole by Jared Flood
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Superwash - ~15 skeins
Needles: 9 circs
Mods: I left off the last repeat of chart G (last one before the edging)
I liked the 3-2-1 effect of it, plus I wasn't sure if I was going to
run out of yarn or not.

This is a wedding gift for a very dear friend of mine. I had thought it was going to be a wrench to give away, but actually, I'm kind of looking forward to it. She's going to have to go out for a few more photo shoots though... once she's done blocking.

I'm pretty sure I'll knit this again - the pattern is really well written and easy to follow, once you remind yourself how to read charts. Plus I think I would like one for my own living room - maybe in a deep burgundy red... jes?

Girasole... done. Waiting patiently to be washed and blocked by its ridiculously busy knitter.

A shiny red wagon...

...that I have fallen off the back of. *sigh* How could a month go by and I haven't noticed? Actually, I know how, but I won't depress you with the details. The point is, I am back on my shiny red wagon. And despite my silence the last month, I HAVE been knitting, but it's secret knitting and not available for public consumption as of yet. Soon, my pretties. Soon.
