Whoa! Where the heck did October go? It was just here a minute ago and, in the words of the always clever Sheepie, great Googly Moogly, it's NOVEMBER. Gracious me.
So ... moving along. Busy, very busy. Despite the fact that I am horse-less and the goats are living at a friend's ranch. Here at the House Of Torture, I was given a raise but at the same time had my workload increased by about 50%. Which is seriously cutting into my blog reading / commenting time. Not good. And then there's that whole working six or seven days a week thinger. Hmm, I seem to have run out of excuses.
However, the knitting continues.
Here we have Crazy Aunt Purl's "Reversible Halloween Beanie" which I did manage to finish in time to wear to Halloween. Or would have, if it hadn't looked like crap on me. Beanies and my head ... not such a good match. Anyway, it used up the orange Koigu I bought to make my Halloween gloves that never got made.
Your most basic sock in some rather ugly yarn. This is Colinette "Jitterbug" which pools quite horrendously. I had thought to make a sample of it for the store but I think we can all agree that this sock would not entice many people to buy Jitterbug yarn. Don't ask me why I'm still knitting with it, I guess hope springs eternal. Perhaps when it's done the colors will miraculously rearrange themsevles and it will be a thing of beauty. Yeah.
From MagKnits, the Fake Isle Hat in Noro Kureyon and Crystal Palace Aran. I love this pattern. However, I do not love my Comfort Zone needles with this yarn. The yarn is stiiiiiiiicking to the needles like whoa.
Speaking of things that move slowly, am I the only one on the planet for whom Ravelry moves at a snail's pace? Yes, I know it's still in Beta, yes, I know it's free, but jeepers creepers, zzZZzzZZzzZZ. Maybe I should write blog posts while I'm waiting for the Ravelry screen to refresh. There's an idea!
