that was me a few months ago – look at me now!
i haven’t decided if i’m going to reknit this. i may just let this sit for a while because i’m a tad tired of the yarn still. i LOVED knitting it, it just came out nothing at all as i’d hoped. i couldn’t have worn it as short as it is in the picture as it would make my body look weird (think of my legs coming straight out of my neck) but it was FAR FAR too big – i took in 4 inches off of either side, and it was STILL that big.
anyhow, there you go.
in other news, i got a purse for my knitting – i finally got that knitting tote they sell at michael’s for $40. so far, so good.
tonight, i’m swatching for angelica and doing the requisite algebra (with cherz’ handy “semaphoria’s stich converter” – convert, you nut!), and probably going to work on the long-neglected DNA hat (it’s only about 3 rows further in than in this picture from a month ago):
why am i working on things for me for the first time in months? on row 169 of 186 of the mishawl, i ran out of yarn. i’m waiting for my knitpicks order to come in. let’s say a little prayer that the dyelots aren’t too dissimilar. then again, it IS the edging that would be different, so no harm no foul, really.
