I did say knit with snot for you, and all I have been talking about is the snot.
I have been knitting like some sort of demon possessed elf. I say elf, because I am working on my holiday knitting!!
I have a Flower Petal Shawl from http://secure.elann.com/freepatterns.asp at the almost complete stage right now. I am working it up in Jo Sharp's Silkroad DK-thanks for buying that and then letting me buy it from you Carina. It's "dusky blue with white and tan flecks" whatever, I think the tan flecks are a bit on the redish side, but it's still LOVELY.
Almost done right, just need to do the edging, right? The Ogre thinks it's not big enough, and that I should do another repeat, and then refigure the math/knitting for the border. NOOOOOO! Once done, done. Why am I a possessed elf then? I am going to also knit the Strawberry Pie Shawl http://www.spindyeknit.com/headless.jpg from Spindyeknit , with the same yarn, for the same intended gift recipint, and then said Ogre will choose which is "big enough."
Did I mention the Ogre is about 6'6"? The person I am knitting for is like 5'4", I think big enough different in his eyes somehow.
