More knitting stuff

I bound off my latest project and it’s a bit too small. So I’m going to have to pull out a bunch of stitches AGAIN and fix it. Or maybe I’ll just leave it the way it is, because it was getting on my nerves. It was good practise with intarsia and fair isle (knitting with different colours of yarn), so I’m writing it off as a learning experience. Maybe I’ll go back to it in a few weeks.

I also finished the previously mentioned SECOND BEST IDEA EVER: a little condom cozy. I used moss stitch with a pretty red yarn, so it’s stretchy and wonderfully textured. I just did some tests and it gets a bit bloated with 8, so I’m saying a healthy capacity is between one and six condoms. It’s really easy and fun to do, so if anyone wants one of their own I’d be glad to knit it for you.

In the next week or so, I want to organize a knitting bee, both for those who know how to knit and those who don’t but want to learn. If anyone wants to hit this up, let me know when you’re free. I’m available most weekdays. No experience necessary!

Yes, we went to Stages.

This guy danced hilariously. We nicknamed him Justin, after the illustrious Justin Timberlake.

  1. I mos’ def want to learn how to knit, especially with a bunch of hip girls! The only nights that are not so good for me are Monday and Thursdays, when I am the Journal and Toucan’s sluts respectively.

  3. Hey there, alisonlang… might you be assuming that men might not want to learn how to knit?

  5. Eve, you mean my knitting dynamo Hilary? Yes, I will ask her.
    And Jason, yes, i assumed. The idea of a man knitting is kind of cozy-hot though. What that means…I couldn’t exactly tell you. INFER!
