In the six weeks since my last post, I have made:
-one ridiculous hat, not worthy of display here. In what fit of dementia did I imagine that that hat wouldn't make me look like a life-sized Kewpie Doll, complete with stupid pointy head?
-negligible process on the first sleeve of my Gathered Pullover. I've got a great little system going where I knit four rounds, put it down, wander off for a week or two, forget how many rounds I've done since the last increase, rip back, knit four rounds...you can see where this goes.
-95% of a feather and fan scarf! Soon to be finished and blogged about, I hope.
Pretty pathetic, really. I do, however, have a new and inventive use for knitting needles! Say, for example, that you're a college student without access to a dishwasher. Say that one day you notice that your trusty Nalgene bottle is getting a little slimy and decide to give it a wash, except you're washing it in your dorm room sink with hand soap and you don't have any scrubbing tools, and you can't fit your hand into the bottle to scrub at the bottom. What you need, you think, is something long and skinny, maybe something you can use to push a rag around the bottom. Something long and skinny...hmmm...
Yeah, I did it.
Not quite the use Susan Bates had in mind, huh?
Clever and inventive? Or just disgusting? You decide.
So as not to finish on that note, here's a picture of that sleeve:
Pretty color, no?
