The Hugs and Kisses scarf for the OFA is finished and in the mail.
I've uploaded a pdf of the pattern for those who've asked. So far the pattern has no pictures, but I'll get that done soon, and then I'll replace the existing pdf with a better one.
I'm working on Shedir for C out of a yarn with much too much variegation. Wrong gauge too, of course, so I'm adding rows between the crosses ....
Sigh. Somehow, the cabling is still managing to be moderately visible, and C likes it .... so I'll keep plugging away.
At first I thought that, if, by some miracle, I actually have yarn left over, I might make a pair of mini-pulse warmers to match. Now I'm sure that there will be no such spare yarn, and I'm beginning to obsess over having enough in the first place.
Just so you don't think that I can knit in small gauges without breaking needles... Within the first ten rounds of Shedir I managed to break my plastic circular needle (picture soon, if I can get it to show up). I'm thinking of changing my email moniker from needledancer to needlebreaker...
I'm still plugging away at the Jaywalkers too, despite another needle breaking. I'm about two rounds away from grafting on sock 1, and I've just started the toe decreases on the other. I've been manipulating things to use the double decrease line to do it. I may find this grossly uncomfortable, but it does let me start the toes w/o disturbing the line of the pattern .... I'm hoping to finish them this week, but the hat seems to have my attention instead.
Meanwhile, in other "news," I succumbed to the lure of another blogthing quizlet. The answer intrigues me with how ... er ...
loosely? ... badly it fits (my comments are in italics):
Your Life Path Number is 1
Your purpose in life is to lead others.
While this may be my divine purpose, it's not one that I take to well. I like to teach, but I'm not often eager to lead. Maybe it's because I don't know where I'm going.
You have great drive and determination. Nothing is going to stand in your way.
This is only intermittently true; if there is something I really really want, I'm pretty persistent, and can surmount obstacles.... but I have to really really want it.
You seek out challenges and the spotlight. You'll take all the work - and all the glory. er... well... I admit to loving the spotlight -- when I'm on stage -- but the only challenges I seek out are knitting ones these days.
Status and success are important to you. You demand the best from everyone and everything.
This is clearly someone else; status is so not important to me. I am one of the least ambitious people I know -- it drives DH nuts. I do demand the best from myself and others, but not because I'm after status. I mean... why be less than we can be?
In love, you tend to take a protective role. You enjoy being the provider in relationships. Bwah-ha-ha-ha... er.. not I like to be spoiled!
You expect others to be like you, and as a result, you are often disappointed.
Well, okay, that's likely to be true. I keep expecting others to think
A little selfish and vain, you always put yourself first.Hmm... No. I've been told I put others first too often.
Remember, everyone already knows you're great - you don't need to remind them!
So how come they forget to tell me?? (wicked grin)
