Year Of Projects
Hot, Hot, Hot... well, if it were just the heat, I wouldn't complain but the humidity is off the charts... The only way to escape it is to find some air conditioning or remain submerged in the ocean...
I'm a sun girl...I can be out in the sun all day without a problem...yesterday I lasted 18 minutes...
I've been knitting off and on..most of the projects are for nerd wars..but I have been practicing intarsia..I'm using up all the ends of skeins for practice and I just knit and frog, knit and frog.. I'm not following a pattern, just getting down the hand and finger motions to keep the tension even.. It seems to have opened up a whole new world of patterns to enjoy..
Recent projects for nerd wars: What is fun is I have to tie in all my knitting into vampires stories plus
To complete the challenge I had to tie in an elevator, vampires, and another teams nerdology..
How the hell does this cowl fit all that..?
The pattern on the cowl matches the pattern on this elevator door:
The elevator contains Dr. Frank N. Furter aka Tim Curry in vampire drag..and it is from the musical movie Rocky Horror.. The musical matches another teams nerdology..(Team Jazz Hands)
Follow all that?
It's fun to try and satisfy the challenges with knitted projects!
My wild raspberries are beginning to ripen..It's a race to see who gets the most..
me or the birds!
