My first official day as a commuter done, and I only made my lunch companions pose for one touristy picture in Yorkville. Maybe it’s the thesis revision stage making me punchy. Also, it might just be the Fall TV blitz going on, but I was in no way bothered by seeing Michael Vartan’s face plastered all over Union Station ads. Or the Laura Secord cone (crunchy chocolate chip) that passed the time waiting for the train to pull out.
In knitting, the hourglass pullover continues (in good pace actually: I’m onto the yoke and have just a few more inches of decreasing before the collar. Hot damn.) but last week I managed to crank out a fun little gem with two balls of Online Linie SmashCrazy from the tent sale at the Needle Emporium. Usually I have to admit a whole lot of weirdness around novelty yarns. I don’t know what to do with them and I’m convinced that one person’s funky!cool is another person’s “you knit WHAT?”. So in that vein, I’m still deciding on this one.
1) This will be so funky and fun to wear all fall! I’ll stay so warm yet stylish in that chilly air, and no way you’d get this in a store!
2) The Fraggles in my basement are shedding, but look at this cool scarf you can make out of it!
Whatever it is, it was fast, it was on 10mm needles, and I’m kicking myself daily for not cramming more of that stuff into my grab bags.
