July 30, 2004



Your mention of the Santa Fe Shawl has made me remember guiltily that I have not finished mine yet! I have been having so much fun with these hats that I have let it (and everything else I currently have on my knitting needles) slip my mind. For shame! I will have to skulk over and pick it up and give it the attention it deserves!!! Better yet, maybe I should join the Bad Ass Knitters! Then I won't have to feel shame and guilt! :)


It's been so long since I've been here, your comments forgot my name!

Hey! My computer's up and running so I'm no longer in blogland survival mode. (post and run).
I wasn't so krazy about Kerry as first choice, initially, but I too liked what I heard last night. And damn if that John Edwards ain't cute as a bugs butt. ::Looks like the prez was up crying all night, eh?::

I'm Jonesin' for the cover sweater of IK as well. The shawl too, which I will do full size in a bigger yarn (alpaca, I'm thinking). The pattern is very similar to the diamond thang I just finished. Very easy and the purling every other row makes it fly.

Bron.....I am so math impaired that geometry never blipped onto the screen of my mind. I would LOVE to hear what you ended up with pattern-wise on the poncho....I would be just pathetically grateful.


Gosh, Lisa - I've seen the caps you're making and can understand putting the shawl away for awhile. :) I'm thinking it's something about the shawl pattern that doesn't thrill either one of us. I mean, it's ok, but it doesn't make you excited to keep knitting, does it?

Marcia - LONG time no see. Wondered where you'd been hiding. Yes - I, too, will end up making that lacey scarf larger...although not shawl size I think. Just to cover a bit more of my shoulders. :)

I'm hoping You-Know-Who might be a wee bit worried after Kerry's speech last night. As quick as the Republicans were to start blasting it, it might have made some uncomfortable....

Lisa in Oregon - No need to be pathetically grateful....just a "Cool - I can maybe use that" will suffice. :::Grin::: I'm modifying my bed cape pattern so I'll definitely share the changes I make.


You are right about the shawl pattern. It is okay, but not all that exciting. And another thing that I don't like is that the yarn I used, Sonata in the color Ruby Cool has way more white in it than I originally thought. It just didn't come out quite like I expected. Another reason for the hat craze, they are small and compact -- it is just too dang HOT and HUMID here to have much knitting in your lap. I guess it sounds kind of funny me complaining about the heat to you who lives in NM, but hey -- yours is a dry heat, right?! ;)


Sure Lisa....a dry heat. :::grin::: Usually. Unfortunately, this year it's been terribly humid because we're actually getting more rain than usual!

Yep - you & I were both a little disappointed in the our yarn choices & the pattern.'s, like, TOTALLY not our fault that we didn't get the shawls finished. There! That's how a bad-ass knitter would rationalize it! hehehehe
