It’s finally cold(ish) out

It’s a good thing, really. Despite the fact that I never did finish a hat, I do have those kick-ass gloves that I made, and now get to point at people with bright pink and purple yarny fingers. I have decided that my next hat attempt will be Koolhaas, in the yarn called-for (yay $30 yak yarn!). But! It will be my reward for finishing Snow White. So no hat until the end of November, I suspect. The sweater progress is coming along nicely, even though I made a stupid mistake and had to rip back 25 damn rows. It’s almost mindless knitting, which is nice. And it’s soft.

Planning ahead, I finally decided upon yarn for my mother-in-law’s socks. I bought some Dream in Color Smooshy in Gothic Rose (a dark pink/grey color). I’ll be making the citrine socklets, partially because they’re quick, partially because it’s a good introduction to hand-knit socks (read: short and cushy), and partially because I’m a greedy bitch who hopes to get a pair of socks for herself out of the remainder of the skein. We shall see. Currently in my Christmas queue is 1 1/2 sock for sister, and 2 socks for mother-in-law.  Oh, and 1/3 of a knitted penis. I can do it.
