My knitting life is a bit slow right now. We just moved, second time in less than 2 months. Our new house is really amazing and we love it so far. But the mountains of boxes to unpack feels overwhelming and is taking the majority of my attention. But I will be back. I started 4 new hats before we did this last move so there will be more!

I AM NOT AN ADULT
WHY DID I THINK I COULD CUT THINGS WITH A KNIFE AND NOT CUT MYSELF BY ACCIDENT TOO
Fact: I have HORRIBLE knife skills
as evidenced by the half-inch-long scar on my right thumb from a mandoline slicer incident last summer (I will never use a mandoline again,…
I once cut myself so bad with a butter knife that I needed 3 stitches. A butter knife. And yes, I was an adult.

That moment when you wake up and realize that your dream about your favorite yarn store having a huge sale isn’t real. And then even if it it was, you still 1) don’t need any more yarn and 2) can’t afford it anyway.

#wip wednesday #ooops thursday #knitting #knitter #fair isle
Let’s pretend I didn’t have technology problems that prevented me from sharing this yesterday on Wednesday.
Only 45 more inches to go on my Few of My Favorite Things Cowl
I’m enjoying this EXCEPT except except 72 stitches on a 16” circular are NOT ENOUGH. I keep having to violently push my stitches around. Part of the problem is that I’m a tight knitter and the black main yarn is a bit thinner than worsted. BUT STILL if I wanted to do this again, I’d cast on at least 96. This would be the perfect project to learn 2 handed fair isle knitting, instead of my beginner drop and pick up method, but not having enough stitches to flow properly makes it impossible for me to really get the rhythm because I have to drop both yarns and get my stitches around the needle.
I am excited tho because I just started putting a tardis on it. And I’m going to do a weeping angel too because the weeping angel episodes are some of my favorites. I thought about putting my girls’ names on it, but decided I’d rather put some animals that represent them instead.
