Phew! Yesterday was a helluva day. I had two hour and a half lessons, and it took me over an hour and a half to get home in the torrential rain. But I had my knitting with me and I got another repeat of the Alien Head top done. It’s official, they are alien heads. Lotus blossom my ass.

Sleeve #1 of Granny Smith is very nearly finished – it just needs that last sprint to the end! I’m going to finish that up today and GASP! start seaming up the body pieces. This cardigan has dragged out for nearly two whole months. I just want to be done with it.

I just couldn’t get to sleep last night. I was running a temperature and all the music and things that had been said to me in my lesson kept going around in my head. I had to give in in the end and spent a good hour turning the heel and sorting out the gusset on my sock.

In case you haven’t heard, the new Knitty is up and for the most part, I am impressed. Following a link from a felted bag project in the new issue, I came upon this. I would really like to make a felted bag, and I think the Coco Bag (scroll to the bottom) would be perfect. It doesn’t look as big as a Booga Bag.

Lastly – and I know this is unprecedented – but do you remember Bliss? That ill-fated Knitting World Cup project? Well, I have about four rows left on the last sleeve and then I have to just sew it all up. So I think I should get stuck into that because I need it to wear! Yesterday, for reasons unknown to me, I decided to wear a poloneck. Why? I knew I was going to be playing for two lessons, I know how hot I get when I play… I’ve got to start making myself wear lighter clothes.

  1. If that alien head is a lotus flower, I’m the Queen. Still looks pretty though. The sock is looking pretty funky too 🙂 Have you any plans for making anything from the new Knitty yet? I quite like those sock patterns, and the kureyon blanket is quite funky, but will cost a fortune (or take many many years to make while I gather materials – wonder if Wendy Fusion will work as a sub?)!
