Knitting T

Monday, April 30th, 2007

In lieu of composing my own travelogue, I bring you something from my favorite t-shirt site:
Georgia - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

I’m trying to distract you with sheep graphics so you don’t notice my lack ‘o writing.

Grafting the lip

Monday, April 16th, 2007

An update on my whereabouts and the past week’s activities will have to wait a few more days. While I had planned on writing an account of recent adventures, I hadn’t planned on spending 4+ hours in the emergency room tonight.

What we have here is an example of the dangers of synchronized swimming. My front tooth punctured my lower lip (entering and exiting) against the shin of a teammate. So far, the highlight of my 34th year…

Prodigal punishment

This is what happens to naughty knitting. After finishing the second sock, I noticed the first toe was knit obviously while unconscious or oblivious to the pattern as written. It was a crazy pyramid from decreasing every other round. Fine for fine-toed, pointy-shoe-wearing peeps, but not for me. Now it’s re-knit and looks handsome on the fabulous sock blockers from Scout.

Other highlights on the fine Sunday:

I was also discovered online by my upstairs neighbor. She, too, is a knitter and has a lovely blog. Her chunky tunics and dresses are further proof that guys get the short end of the stick when it comes to design. They look gorgeous on her! Here’s hoping we get to knit together before she moves to NYC in the summer.

In her honor, I leave you with a photo (by the Man) that made me think of her. Happy Q2, all.
