gotta love 90s sitcoms

Lots of knitting has been accomplished once I found the glory of watching old 90s sitcoms on my trusty ibook. That's right, I've been catching up on some of classics like Boy Meets World, Clarissa Explains It All and some pathetic attempts to watch My So-Called Life. It seems the latter is rather hard to find on my fantabulous pirated websites.

So here's some stitchy progress:

Need to sew up side seams [grr, why couldn't the pattern just work in the round?!] and attach neckband... and weave in ALL those pesky ends.

Birthday Socks
On to the heel flap! These have been wonderful to knit up once I was enlightened to the glory of Sensational Knitted Socks. And thank you Allena for being a good knitting friend and suggesting that I knit these little wonders on a bigger needle size. Since I'm a very tight knitter, the original socks barely fit around a water bottle! Hopefully Margaret will like these insane rastafarian socks! Similar looking to Jaywalkers...

thanks everyone for the 3-needle BO suggestion. things are coming together on this on. just need to sew up the seams and then CO the border!

And a detail. I'm just so proud!

Le Slouch
So close to finishing. 16" circular is too small so in my quest to find my 8 DPNs, what did I find? 6s, 7s, 15s... no 8s! Grr. That means that I HAD to go to amazon and I HAD to buy 8 DPNs and 1s and 2s and 0s and a copy of Sensational Knitted Socks and a copy of Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns. Y'know, I just had to.

The needle thing happens. I bought the Options set thinking I could justify the expense because I'd never have to buy another knitting needle. Yeah, so what was the $50 I spent last week on dpns, huh? It never ends.... Good luck with all that sewing!!

The sweater looks great, and so does the afghan - you picked some really great colors. Hope you finish le slouch before all the cold weather leaves!!
