Projects on the couch and needles right now:
- Christmas Service gift for McKay's dad part something. I forgot what part I'm on. The yarn is not my favorite and I'd never make it for myself or anyone I personally know. I know my audience, though and it's appropriate yarn for them. But OH! What a pain to work with. I'll NEVER use it for myself EVER.
- Barf Scarf. Another yarn I can't stand (this is why switching projects is good: I get to work on awful projects while working on ones I enjoy at the same time). The colors are gross and the yarn is gross (it's a novelty one), but I love the pattern. I'll be using this pattern again. But I don't want to give scarf to anyone I know. I think I'll sell it on ebay.
- Baby Bootie. I already made the matching hat and the bootie's mate, but I haven't been able to mention it on this blog until the official announcement of my pregnancy. You'll see pictures of them when I'm done. I'm using the yarn that Lifeasamama sent me in a swap. It's baby blue. If we have a boy, it'll be perfect. If it's a girl, I'll add ruffles to the hat later. It's not like babies actually have genders. People guess genders based on colors, not on any real gender-defining characteristics.
- McKay's Linux scarf. It's been in my queue on the side of this page for a while, but it needs to be knit REALLY tight. I'm already using worsted on size 5 needles to make it tighter, and I'm knitting as tight as I can, but it's slow going. VERY SLOW going.
There's a wool sale at the LYS! And since I get their monthly newsletter in the mail, I can go in and pick up a free pattern book since they're trying to clear out their stock for next year's books. I'm excited!
Oh, and a side note, the conversation referred to in the video in the previous post was word for word real. It took place last March.
Me: Do you want to have a baby?
McKay: No! I can't! I want a cookie! A chocolate chip cookie!
So I let that subject drop for a while (hence I didn't get pregnant for a few months after it). Men are weird. Cookies!
