MisdiagnosisRemember a few posts ago when I said I had Startitis?
I was wrong.
I have knitting ADD.
I have started more projects.
Here is a Booga bag:
The still unamed socks that I have started FOUR times because I'm too dim to do K1P1:
And a shawl which I will cast on soon:
I have made progress on the Falling Leaves Blanket:
Speaking of the Booga bag, I have been wanting to make one of these for forever. However, one line in the pattern kept stopping me: "Knit 5-6 feet of i-cord."
Five to six FEET of i-cord? I would rather gouge my eyes out with flaming dpn's than knit that much i-cord. The three feet that I knit for my little green bag damn near killed me.
I know that there's no law that says you have to use i-cord on Booga, but I do love the look of it. I just hate knitting it.
Anyway......I dove into the Booga bag, hoping I would learn to love i-cord by the time I had to knit it.
And no, it didn't work.
So, this evening I dragged myself to Hobby Lobby to buy some 10.5 dpn's. As I was looking for the needles, something called my name. I turned, and saw this:
It's an i-cord factory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, that's not the offical name, but trust me. That's what it is.
It was only $6 more than the dpn's, so I grabbed it and damn near skipped out of the store.
All the way home I was fretting. I'm a
I needn't have worried. I am in love with this thing!!! I made this much i-cord:
in LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was worth every cent that I paid. I-cord is fun! I *heart* i-cord!
(Note to the KWA-ers, if you need to make i-cord, I will be happy to share. :) )
Also at Hobby Lobby, I found this:
And promptly turned it into a dpn case:
(Another note to my knit group: if any of you want these buttons, let me know. I have no use for them.)
I'm excited about this weekend. I plan on making it to knit group on both Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday will be sad, though. We will be saying goodbye to Ann. She's moving away. Hopefully it's only for a few months because she will be missed.
Kishka was being really cute tonight, so I snapped a picture. Unfortunately, I take pictures about as well as I K1P1:
