Random Thursday

  • I now know the names of all 4 Wiggles. Greg, Murray, Jeff and Anthony. I've been playing the Wiggles nonstop because I think it's cute how Lorelei dances to the music and says Wiggles. It's one of the longest words she knows.
  • I've gotten an inch completed of the neck of my Picovoli, 30 inches of Irish Hiking scarf and 11 inches of the Wavy scarf. One day I'll take pictures of my WIPs.
  • Flickr - Somehow I've already used up all of my free downloading this month. Not really a problem (since I haven't taken any pictures anyway). But if I did take pictures it would make it harder to blog from work.
  • I'm tempted to frog the sock from hell. It's caused so much grief that I don't want to touch it. And I'm still not sure if it will fit anyway. I'm thinking about trying toe-up, but with another yarn. I love the sock from hell yarn and I think it will make great stripy socks that I want to wear, but I don't want to think about right now.
  • I started my Picovoli on Friday. This is definitely my biggest and most complicated project to date. I'm about an inch into the neck after several hours of work. I hope I'm able to finish it before summer is over - I really want to wear it. I just learned knit into front and back. I think it looks ok, but I need to get a little more completed to be able to really tell how it looks.
  • It's going to be 80 degrees today, but my office is so cold that I have to wear my jacket. I wonder how long I'll be able to feel my fingers.

Happy (late) birthday! Don't give up on the socks. One of my US 1 rosewood (expensive) Lantern Moon dpns snapped, too. I took it back to my LYS and they sent the broken needle back to LM, who replaced it. It only took about a week or so, and now I have 5 again. :)

I forgot to mention, here's a great toe-up sock pattern with a good explanation of the short-row heel, too:
