Do you watch Men in Trees? I've seen it a few times but not enough to know any of the names - I did note, however, in a recent episode that the heroine, a writer, was knitting, yes knitting, a sweater for her man, who was lost at sea - a fact she didn't learn until the end of the episode. Do the writers of the show know about the Boyfriend curse?
It was a nice sweater - ribbed from the looks of it. I couldn't tell if it was on circular needles, however. DH was amused that I was so attuned to the details. "Is she doing it right?" he asked.
I launched into yet another project (why o why? I just can't help myself) Fashionably Late in '08 Clapotis. It's a KAL and I just can't resist them. I love knitting with other knitters, I guess. It will be in pinks - yarn my mama brought me from Australia. I'm finding it to be very soft to knit with. I started it to say I've started it... but first: Must finish half-mitts for friend and lacy scarf for friend.
The mittens are the ones I wrote about before. They are the first pair I've made for myself. The thumb opening is a little short and they are probably a little long, but I love them anyway. The colors worked together as well as I had hoped. And I got them done just time for spring :) It's okay - we're not out of the woods yet and winter always comes back.
Notice that they are laying on a gorgeous bamboo floor? DH really went to town and is nearly done with it. I'll post pics when the room is cleaned up a bit more.
