Look, I got my haircut, again. I went from just having hair, to Posh Spice's Official fan club haircut, to Sawyer from Lost's doo, to this here. It's what I like to call Cousin Oliver's haircut. Also, I did not knit the sweater. It's from Eddie Bauer. I'd like to knit my own copy of it, but that seems silly.
I meant to post this the other day. The Ogre loves Irises. Last year we didn't have any flowers. He thought storms snapped all the unopened flowers off the plants. Only if that storm's name is Cyrus. So this year our Irises are glorious.
This is the Tuscany Shawl, again. I am still working on it. I tried to start a pair of socks on two circs, got frustrated, smooshed it all up together and slam dunked it into a bag behind my chair. It's now resting next to a 3/4 completed Dread Pirate Sam, several items that need ends woven in, and a small kitten's worth of cat hair.
I ended up knitting away on the shawl and asking Eric to do the math I couldn't do while knitting.
It went something like this...Ogre, what's 16 x 12, ok now remember that number, subtract that from 372, ok, now divide that by 16. 3.5 you say? That's what I got too. Crap that means I have 3 more pattern repeats to go. What's 16 x 3.5?
So, I am really almost done and I learned a valuable lesson. Although I suffer from completing second sock syndrome. Look it up on wiki. I am also not able to get the flipping, twisting of two circs under control enough to make that any less irritating. Magic loop next?
I'll just finish the shawl and then obsess about finding a dress to wear with it.
