Mexcellent Knits!

8:46:00 AM



Looks like Knit Picks isn't going to have the yarn I need to finish knitting my Big/Little Cables pullover until 11/19. In the meantime, I cast on Rosamund's Cardigan from Interweave Fall 09. I'm using Wool of The Andes Worsted in Amber Heather, although after working with it for several hours, the color reminds me of Chipotle re-fried beans, which in turn makes me hungry for Mexican food. ;-) Also, I'm not super crazy about the short sleeves. If I have enough yarn left over, I might just knit some.

OK, you may laugh or cry when you see this (I did a combination of both)... My Swallowtail Shawl accidentally went into the wash yesterday and it completely shrunk and felted! I mean, it looks cool and all, but it's too small and thick to be a scarf anymore... or maybe, I don't know. Not for me. I can probably use it for something.... home decor anyone?



My hand for the most part is back to normal, but tightens after a few minutes of knitting. I have to stop and stretch it out, before I can go on... but I probably should have been doing that from the get-go before this hand business started. It tightens even quicker when I type, so I'll have to keep this post short.

In other news, I was invited to Google Wave by one of my co-workers. It seems very cool, but right now I don't have any invites to give out to any of my friends so they can join me. It's no fun riding the Wave alone, so come on Google. Cough those invites up!

OK, hand getting all weird. I'll end this post with some yummy baked goodness.

SPICY ITALIAN CORNBREAD



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12" square or muffin pan with butter and set aside.
  • 2 boxes Jiffy Brand Cornbread mix

  2. Yes, the Swallowtail incident was a dark time during my knitting history. ;)
