First off, the Finished Object. I knit up the Malagaiter from magknits.com. I used Malabrigo and knit the larger size thinking everthing would be grand - and perfect for the upcoming winter that seems to have finally come to CT. Actually, it seems to have come everywhere BUT my town. Cities that don't get snow / ice usually are walloped and we get rain. Yuck...praying for a snow day tomorrow, but a delay would be nice too. Anyway. I seamed it up and pulled it on my head. And pulled. And pulled. I couldn't get the thing on my head! So, in times like these you find a suitable recipient. Given that it's just me, Dan and the dog, guess who got it?
Jackson is a wonderful sport. It also can be worn Survivor Buff style
I've decided that since the stuff I've knit ends up on the dog anyway, I'll try and knit him a sweater. Maybe it'll fit me when I am done. I really like a few patterns I've seen in this japanese knitting book so now I'm on the hunt for online translations / charts / tips...
Today was a stinky day at work (it's no fun to have middle schoolers yell at you and lie right to your face). So on my way home I treated myself to a Cinnamon Dolce Frappacino - ignore the nutritional information as that takes all the fun out of it. It was tasty.
Think snow. think snow. think snow.
