Well it's a foggy day
There's about a million things
That I can do
Whoa oh, oh
Won't you, do them too?!
It's part of the theme song from Peep and the Big Wide World for those of you who do not have small children. I love that show. Cute, science and funny also voiced by Joan Cusak.
Yeah, okay. Well, on with the show...
Look it's a foggy winter day. Not a very common thing around here. Not that I can recall anyway. Usually winters here are dry as a bone and fighting static cling takes on epic proportions. Especially if your showers are rarely long enough to shave frequently. Not a good look, the pant legs stuck to the calves like that.
On the knitting front, a Spa Cloth. I used two of the Paton's Cotton Top (substitute any slubby cotton yarn in worsted weight) held together and 6.5mm (US 10.5) over 30 sts then just garter stitched until it was square.
Another scarf using the Sisu sock yarn, two strands Ovation and Paton's Kroy sock yarn. Incredibly soft! I thought the purple scarf was soft, but this one makes that one feel like sandpaper. The colour makes me think of those little Spearmint candies you get at restaurants with your bill or in a basket at the front till. Yep, we frequent really classy joints around here. Another one using the K1, *Yo, K2tog* to end, K1. This one is over 14 sts and on 9mm (US 13) needles.
My favourite Christmas ornaments. Aren't they cute? I got them for my birthday two years ago and loved them instantly. Check out the cute little rolled brim, knit stocking caps.
I was rearranging a bit yesterday and guess what I found. The box of dishcloths for my friends that I thought I had mailed off months ago. I suck. Here I was wondering if gotten lost in the mail or if they just didn't like it and didn't want to say anything. Who doesn't love knit dishcloths though?! The box smelled fabulous thanks to the lavender soap Jen had tucked in with her dishcloths though. So now it is taped up, on the kitchen table, ready for the mail and going out today. I suppose getting a nice Christmas gift is cool too.
