Fiber follies

So, are you wondering what else I've been doing besides writing?

Well, there's some of this...



(That's the kid sized blanket that Cave Troll decided made him a charity of one:-)

A little of this...




(And that would be one of the pairs of socks I'm working in--the yarn is Wool Quarters by Mountain Colors--I forget the colorway, and the pattern is one of the Stansfield variations from the second Charlene Schurch sock book .)

And some of this...



(And that was supposed to be a double shot of Rio de la Plata yarn in this lovely multi-dyed blue/green/violet, and the Spring Forward sock in *snark* African Gray. I think what we got was Ladybug, after exploring her sister's make-up bag. Bad Ladybug...bad...)

There would also be some other socks--a pair in this lovely cotton/elastic that Chicken cast-on and now I get to finish (*snork* I get to finish them because she BAILED!!!) and an antique rose striped jaywalker, and a lovely pair of peacock-eyelet socks, all of which I wanted to load on but blogger was being a total fucker so I didn't.

It doesn't matter anyway, because as much as blogger is being a total fucker, it doesn't change the fact that I would be MORE than happy to spend my small amount of knitting time doing socks in the night rotation during my scant television time, but I'm not. No. I'm spending my precious and scant night knitting time on this...




(Please blogger load you spasmodic electronic fuck!) This would be a sweater, sized XL, for Chicken. Her request, both the color and the fiber. THAT is the back of your basic Lion Brand Acryllic Homespun yarn-splitting crapfest, because she asked me. And I love her.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, you know my great shame. The colorway? Mardi Gras--and on behalf of knitters everywhere, I'd like to apologize to New Orleans.

And now, I have to go kill some folks on paper--but that's okay, because my knitting wasn't that appealing anyway.

Love,lovelove the shot of your little troll-worm in coccoon. And Chicken needs to find a more secure place to hide her makeup. The Bug obviously is into gilding the lily.

Hope you had fun killing off people on paper! We need more pictures when blogger cooperates - so many socks to see.

cute kids... esp. ladybug in the sink! Enjoy killing off (presumably nasty) characters... "any resemblance to living persons is purely coincidental"?

OMG, what language were you speaking??? Yarny? Knittish?

It always makes me pause when I see pics of your lil' ginger baby. I always wonder how the heck you got my baby photos! I should send you some to compare. It would scare you. *evil grin*
