Some knitting

Clearly creativity has left me. Blog titles are hard to nail down, they tend to be really good, or really bad.

It is obvious which way I lean.

I finished both the socks this weekend. That wasn't to hard, neither one of them really needed that much work. Later today I hope to cast on the second pair of the plain one, and work a little bit on the fancy one. We'll see if that works. I hope it does, but I am consumed entertained by this little number.

It's Elizabeth Zimmermann's Totem Jacket, and despite the fact that it is acres of garter stitch, I am in LOVE with it. I'm aming for mid-thigh lenth which means that I will probably have to get it about hip-lenth, and wait (let it sag).

The yarn is a reycyled cotton that I ripped out a few months back. I'm not sure if it will be enough, but I am physically and emotionally prepared to deal with contrasting sleeves.

Don't expect to see a hood on this puppy. I aim for a nice elegant collar. Maybe some pockets too.

It's about sixteen inches long. I hope to be at the armhole by tonight. Wish me Luck.

(And by the way Desperate Housewives last night was a little silly. I can't even count how many murders those girls have covered up, but yet this one is giving them issues? Come on!)

(Pan Am was a good watch too. A little hard to follow, but it all came out in the end.)

  1. I can't think of a nicer title that "Some knitting"... Makes me hope that the next one is "More knitting"...
