. . .i write this post.
while my last post gave some people the impression that i hate crochet,
i’m glad most of you realized i was just joshing.
misa got it in one:

“Hmm, let’s see, crochet=Sandy and knitting=Rizzo.”

thanks for helping bring some levity to the silly knitting/crochet “feud”.
let’s be honest; if really hated crochet,
would i be participating in helloyarn’s potholder swap? i think not! .
pattern: lucy of attic24’s hexagon how-to
yarn: ty-dy cotton

i think it’s going to be a blast so you should do it too.
let’s show those crocheters that we love them!
(at least until april 15th)

in other yarny related news,
my new favorite person, jenn,
made me these gorgeous socks!
(yes, my love can be bought)
we work together on sundays,
and the laughter has increased tenfold.

between these beauties and the socksms. lisa b made for me,
i am officially hooked. i love handmade socks.
but i still don’t love knitting them.

i can see this is going to be a problem.

buttoned up

April 15, 2010

i found it.
the perfect button.

(jeg elsker det!)

after finding the perfect button, i headed to the strip district and . . .
let us never speak of the money i spent at loom
i’ll just say,
i have a bag of fabric.
they have a bag of money.

first crochet

April 15, 2010

last night,
in a fit of “i need to f-ing finish something”
i turned to my naalepuder
(that’s danish for pincushion i believe, and the name of the pattern)

i’m not that proficient at crochet.
mostly because i don’t really do it often.
and let’s be real bitches,
most crocheted items are über tacky.
(did i just drop a drama bomb?)

but i find this little buddy to be pretty sweet

and gives me hope for the next generation of hookers

i just have to decide which side is the “right” side.
which do you prefer?

today’s mission,
use my day off to find the perfect buttons.
(my life is so small)
*weep*

but i do believe in bending the shit out of them.
so even though i haven’t cast off two WIP’s yet,
i have started something new:

(pattern – naalepuder, yarn – mochi plus in autumn rainbow colorway)

now let me clarify for all you non-knitters out there.
the rule i had made for myself was that i wouldn’t cast on a new project until i had cast off two in order to get through my backlog.
this little pincushion is crocheted.
you don’t cast on crocheted items.
i have honored the letter of my rule and evicerated its spirit.
(insert devious laugh of your choice)

gotta love a loophole.

i am still working on my girasole,
but i’m finally at the edging.

aint she perty?
