Insert expletive here

Excuse me, but who invited you, Mr. Toe? I know that I didn't.

Delightful yarn plus wonderful new stitch equals . . . a rip? Not fair! And I don't even know how to darn socks. I never intended to learn - that and dusting. Never a fan of the dusting.

Expletive: Your choice 4-letter word

Easter plus yarn multiplied by lots of knots equals yum!

Left: Malabrigo Kettle Dye Pure Merino in Azul Bolita. Not sure what to do with this. Might need to purchase more skeins for a vest or shrug. Hmm... ideas?
Center: Socks that Rock! Finally, I can cast on.
Right: Claudia Hand Painted Yarn in Jungle. Socks for moi! Gotta love the additional jimmy-rigged kid sister skein, eh?
Shop [left & right]: What's Needling U? in Frisco, CO. Something so heartwarming about buying yarn in a cozy mountain town.

Expletive: hells yeah!

Secret Feet Status
Made the foot too big. Had to frog and tink then reknit THEN tinked some more since still too big. But these must be as close to perfect as possible.

Cowl Status
Ran out of yarn. What?!!? Well, I trekked to Knit New York AND Downtown Yarns to try and match the yarn and nothing. I even purchased yarn at DY thinking that it was the same but it wasn't. I can't even post a pic. Too sad. Need to buy online now. Poor poor knitting. FYI - Knit's new website. Horrendous! Check it out and let me know if you agree. There's no yarn search. Why have a website for a yarn store if I can't even see what you sell?!!

Expletive: grumble grumble

More Yarn to Oggle

For Weekend Knitting's Bergamo - Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, lot 610
For who knows what, Cascade Yarns' Bollicine Dolly [sale!]. Hmm... ideas?

Expletive: Creative adjectives using pornographic references

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Mz. Kwooz of "I have no stash or a blog" fame has jumped head-first into the deep end and received her membership card to the knitting blogsophere.

Everyone say it with me, "I told you so!"

Are those Margaret's socks? Or just the same yarn as hers? Darning can't be difficult, can it? I've never done it, but I envision that it's like kitchenering (sp?) a toe closed. That Debbie Bliss is too yummy for words.

OH NO! The socks--so sad! I'll fix them for you! But I don't really know how I would or how to tell you how. Can you just rip out a couple of the top rows out and re-kitchener it? (or get the wearer to cut her toenails--heh heh!)

I love Malabrigo, too. I made a really cute baby sweater out of one skein. I was warned the yarn would pill so I haven't made an adult out of it, but I may do it anyway.Let me know if you want to see the baby sweater--I have a pic from my long-ago pre-blog days.

Um--thanks for the snarky shout-out! hee hee
