i don’t believe in breaking rules,

March 29, 2010

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?

    Love the color of the crocheted thing.
    HUGE Girasole. Keep up the good work.
    Rules are more guidelines than actual rules.

    Me too, love love love the colour of that wool.

    (Note to self, I live in America now so it’s ‘color’ and ‘yarn’)

    I’m gobsmacked by the girasole, it looks so intricate and…yeah…huuuuuge!

    I’m so loving your girasole! Is the edging taking *forever*?! Right when I thought I was almost there that darn edging got in the way- didn’t realize I still had a few days of work left!

      it’s definitely taking longer than i’d like. i think its because it’s so awkward with this huge blanket pulling on your dpns/edging, which slows everything down. but i will finish! i have a blocking party scheduled so it has to be in the water before then.

    I was so sad to not see Steph, as I had a Science Olympiad event farrr away from DPL..otherwise I would have run like the wind there.

    thank you for offering the Girasole….I’m going to win it! (huh?)
