Knitting on St. Pats

It's St. Patrick's Day, so it is not only awesome that i have completed, photographed knitting to show you (and knitting in progress for that matter, now that I think of it- I have sucked on that front too.), but that knitting is also green in color. Fancy that.

My Wicked Sweater. Eh.
I am very proud that I knit an item of clothing, and it hasn't fallen to shreds or burst into flames. And short sleeved sweaters are actually feasible for me to own, what with us having like two weeks of winter. But I tell you what, right up there with No Wire Hangers, EVER is no worsted weight sweaters. Ever. It's a bad look for me. That, along with me knitting this probably a size or so too big means that there's a boxiness to the middle that honestly I have worked way to hard at the gym to get rid of. Oh well, win some, lose some. Here is the Rav page, and the yarn is Cascade 220 in Irelande. Hmm. How appropriate.

The Textured Shawl, for more worsted weight fun:
(and the shawl is sitting with my Oxalis and actually looks kind of nice with that purple. Maybe I will knit the plant a shawl as well.) I shopped at home for this- there are three balls of this stuff that have been hanging around for ever. I think it's so funny that I am knitting a shawl. At first i thought that maybe it was like my transformation into someone's grandma or something was becoming more complete. But no, it turns out they are kind of trendy and fancy right now. you don't wear them with the point in the back, you wear them in the front sort of like the stars of Young Guns II or an old timey bankrobber or what not. It's The Cool Thing To Do, and this is the first time in a while that I have been aware of what the cool thing is, I am running with it.

In neon green.

I hope your St. Pat's is loads of fun, and reeks of cabbage. We are cabbage-less, but BF informs me that he will be staying in and having a one man party of sorts. Goober Go Bragh!

I have the same problem with pullover sweaters. I will be making a cardigan next time. Very cute though.

Ditto the pull over feelings in worsted weight. Unfortunately, I don't have the patience for sweaters in anything finer gauge, LOL! I love that shade of green and I actually don't think it looks that bad on you.

From sparkly unicorns, to glow-in-the-dark dolphins, these new fashion rubber bands
silly bandz have everyone talking. With the thousands of different varieties to choose from, children and

young adults have found it easy to grab onto this new fad. Plus, the price is right --the average price for a theme pack of 24 is around $4. Most of us think, “Oh! What a steal;

that’s such a great price.” When the reality of it is, the cost of 24 regular rubber bands is less than $1. Why pay more for shaped rubber bands, when you can have regular ones

for cheaper? Sure, they’re fun to play with and are a great conversation starter, but what is it about them that’s so fascinating, or for some, not fascinating? Students at Monte

Vista either love them or hate them. bakugan toys.
