Prodigal punishment

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.

    $380 jeans are easy to resist when you don’t have that much money to spend. Actually, I could use plastic, but the thought of spending that much on any item of clothing other than a kilt rankles both my inner Scot and my inner lesbian. I stick with TJ Maxx & LL Bean for mine.

    Sounds like you had a pretty good weekend. $380 on a pair of jeans…..no way, that’s $380 I can use on yarn. :)

    Those are some seriously lovely jeans. I’ve never spent more than 190 on jeans and those were my favorite pair ever. Gay men hav a very special relationship with their jeans.

    Aww shucks, I’m blushing right now.

    Well, I’m back from my lil’ vacay, and the postman managed to cram my special package into our tiny mail box along with the rest of the week’s mail. Thanks for looking out. Now that I’m back, let’s get our knit on!

    Congrats on 100 miles. That’s inspiring. You should reward yourself with those jeans! They are amazing and you totally need to have them. Do it!
