Drought? What Drought?

Remember how I was kinda going through a phase where I didn’t really wanna knit?


Well, consider that done.

I may not have been POSTIN’, but I sure as hell’ve been KNITTIN’!

The following FOs were all started and completed between Thursday, Feb. 9th and Thursday, Feb. 16th (ok, except for the Hannukah scarf, which just kicked off the FO parade on the 9th…IF YOU WANNA GET ALL TECHNICAL):

Gilli’s Hannukah Scarf
Really, the My So-Called Scarf, knit in Manos.

Here it is, modelled by Gilli.
She got it *just* in time for the big ‘blizzard’ of ’06!!!

the Roche Beanie
A Chunky version of the London Beanie, knit in Cascade 109.

This would be Roche.
That boy’s been bugging my ass for a hat for MONTHS. YEARS maybe. He promises never to ask for another knitted thing ever.

Newsboy hat for ME!
Headline News, from Stitch N’ Bitch Nation, knit in Blue Sky Worsted.

No, you can’t have it. It’s mine!

My Sideways Scarf.
180 stitches on a 32″ US19 circular needle, using 100% wool from Ellen’s Half-Pint Farm. I got the stuff at Rhinebeck — a little itchy but the colors are fabulous!

…who complains I never talk about her on the blog, thought it could double as a shrug.

…I thought it doubled nicely as a turban.

A Closeup.
It came out a *wee* bit long, but still, I {{heart}} the scarf. IT MATCHES MY HAT SO WELL!

Look again!!
See how well they match!!!!!


I’m tired just *thinking* about all that knitting!!!

Add in that I almost added SNOWBOARDING to my insane list of new/revisited hobbies (ahhh, the power of cute boys), and I’m pooped!

Speaking of which (the hobbies, not the boys), I’m two weeks into ballet, ice skating starts next week and Laurent is still kicking my ass!!! OH! AND! I can now plink out “Ode to Joy,” “Yankee Doodle,” AND “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” on the guitar!!! READING THE MUSIC! YAAAY!!!!

    Okay – that newsboy cap and YOU in it = cutest thing EVER! Did you put something into the brim to make it stand out? Really – stupendous cap. You look great. The rest of the knits are wonderful too, but that cap really spoke to me. :)

    Dude, that cap sounds amazing on you.

  12. Stacey Says:

    Wow, I can’t believe how much knitting you turned out in such a short amount of time. I really wonder how people do it.

    And I am really proud of you taking up all these hobbies. We all say we don’t have time, but we do. We just have to make time for it…and you’re living proof :) I should really take up guitar again…

    I love the newsboy hat. I’ve been wanting to make one but the brim scares me. It looks hot on you.
    Be careful with that long scarf, like, don’t get it caught in an escalator or something.

  16. Vicki Says:

    You have been busy! (haha, typed busty the first time) That hat is PERFECT for you.

  17. biglug Says:

    You have been a busy knitting. I love the newsboy hat. Too. cute.

  18. Leigh Says:

    Your Newsie hat is great! I made one for a friend, but she and I both have big ole punkin heads so it doesn’t look quite right. Adorable!

  19. Stephanie Says:

    Seriously. I don’t know how you find the time to knit with all the other stuff you’ve got goin’ on. I love all your finished projects (especially the pageboy – hmmm may need one of those).

  20. Silvia Says:

    Wow! I adore that newsboy cap! I so must have one now. Darn.

  21. frecklegirl Says:

    I have been the opposite of productive since I got home from my vacation. It is just so cold and gray! wah!
