The sun will come out…

Ok so I am finally fealing more like myself and can’t wait to find some time to do some more talking and tell you guys what I have been up to. But that will have to wait now until I have some free time at home, this may take until next week. But for now here are a couple notes and some picture for you to enjoy.

  1. I would like to publicly announce my anger over yarn sluts segment of the Knitty D and the City (that’s Wendy) show. Because of their influential episode 5, I cannot stop going to Webbs¬†website and coveting the Rowan plaid. :P
  2. I am loving the new book Greeting from Knit cafe and will talk about it in the net episode(whenever that happens). But, after visting the Knit Cafe website, I am a little disturbed by the buzz. I look at the the Buzz section and then mouse over it.. I think that picture may be a little phalic for me. Or I am just a high school kid at heart and can’t help but making everything into a penis joke.
  3. Knitting in public would be more awesome if it weren’t raining out. But I give major props to the following people who did show up in Boston. I hope i get all your names correct:
    Jordan – kgb special forces
    Noble Jordan
    Anna – Random knitter from Milan
    Anna
    Ariel - Sock of the week contestant (12 done since January)
    Ariel
    Alasdair - KGB special ops (triple knitting)
    Triple Alasdair
    Dannielle - Sock reporter
    Danielle
    Emily - Flaming Poi glove maker (don’t ask, I don’t know)
    EmilyFlaming Poi
    Patience – Not just a virtue, but also a slammin knitter (thanks for the help
    Patience is a virtue
  4. Finally, EZ is not for kids… Mrs. Zimmerman’s baby suprise is only suprising if you think you can do it without ripping back. It took me a week to get therought the first three colors I used:
    Suprise Baby
    Just when I thought I was doing ok, I got binto the increases and everything went wacky again. I give you holes:
    Not a suprise
    oh cruel world… oh Elizabeth.. why mus you taunt me with your clever projects that make more sore in the ripping…. Oh well, I have to rip back to the red, again… If the holes were the only problem i might just leave them in (hey, it’s my first one and the baby won’t know). But my stitch count is off, again, so I have to go back.

That’s it for now. I bet somebody in my office has some work for me to attend to. :)

    Hi! I’ve been listening to your show since the first episode, and continue to enjoy it very much. You get better each week!

    Glad that you’re feeling better. It’s no fun to be sick, and kind of hard to knit with a stuffy head. =( Hope you’re past the worst of it. =)

    Wow, it looks like you had an awesome KIP day! Ours was a much more modest size, but fun nonetheless.

    The Baby Suprise Sweater! Ever since you mentioned that project a few weeks ago, I’ve been dying to knit it. Look forward to seeing yours finished! It looks good, even though you’ve had to rip it back some. =)

    Love the show. Sorry to be an enabler but just had to tell you that Plaid is fabulous. I bought enough to do the Big & Cozy throw from Debbie Abrahams second Throws book. I\’ve had to stop knitting it during our UK heatwave but look forward to getting it out again in the Fall. BTW – I\’m moving to Boston in August. Maybe our paths will meet sometime!

    I have created a spread sheet (converted to pdf) file of Baby Surprise which is very, very easy to follow. If you would like a copy, let me know.
    Cool podcast.
