Cheryl's new sweater

Here's the sweater Josh's mom knitted for Cheryl.

In case you don't remember. Josh and Cheryl were our Woodstock neighbors. Their images turn up in the gods and goddesses series.

Yep, that's them. + josh is responsible for the video ---->
that one, the one you can view from the profile ---->

this is true

There is a bath tub in the closet of my studio, It's built in so I either have to take out the wall or break it apart with a sledge hammer.

It's not plumbed so I use it to store knitting machines.

I do a meme

From TheAmpuT

The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.

The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, Anchor edition, 1960, by Alice B. Toklas

2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.

Be sure that no skin remains.

3. Post the next 3 sentences.

It is very unpleasant to encounter. Tie the fish together. Roll out the dough, place the fish in it, moisten the edges of the dough.

4. Tag 5 people.

If you're feeling it run with it.

I think that I've mentioned it before, but....

Listen to the Yknit podcasts.

If you don't listen through the site you can subscribe on itunes.

The latest installment is with Jess and Casey ... so go, hear them talk about Ravelry.

HizKNITS and WONDERMIKE are doing a fantastic job. and they both take such loverly photos.
I am almost ready to become a copycat, knitting in the bath. I'm a little afraid though, since my machine is electric.

So while I have you zipping around the interwebs... one more thing to check out...

Quelle Erqsome is having a contest.

Get your moustache on and submit!!!

The image that I'm looking at and thinking about today while I process all of the information from the symposium this week.

When I wake up wondering

I'm in one of the not sure moods. That isn't a very good thing for the day I have ahead.

This evening starts the symposium. hmmm.....

I have a few things going on the needles. I will borrow a camera so you all can take a look at some of the ideas. It's all very raw still. I can't seem to get to the image that feels right.

I want it to be something that seems very familiar to everyone, but I don't want a cliche.

I'm now leaning towards the traditional types of knit Fair Isle patterning, but, ...

amped up somehow (I've been playing around with mathematical sequences) not working though.
and I still want to translate what I'm doing by hand to the machine, or combine it with the machine.

soon soon

hyperbolic crochet

The New York Times has an article about the coral reef project and hyperbolic crochet today. My ribbon brain things don't seem so crazy to you now right?

look alikes

taken from craftyboy's blog

and no John Travolta

I sat up in bed, two a.m. , heart pounding, palms sweating, with this thought.

I've got to get some Malabrigo.
