    When was seventeen, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I looked up directions online, got really excited, and ran downstairs to find my mother and inform her of my plans.

    She looked at me, sighed, and said, 'Why can't you go out and get drunk, like a normal seventeen year old?'

    I'm still yarn obsessed.

It’s the weekend!

Well, it was for me at least, as I have off on Tuesday and Wednesday.  I knit a lot of Rosedale United, and am now a full 10 inches into the body.  Unfortunately, my digital camera’s batteries are dead and need to be charged overnight, so the only picture I have is from yesterday.

Rosedale and Dan
Pullover sweater or pretty little hat? You decide.

Since I knit the cardigan version of this sweater two years ago, I’ve learned a lot about knitting.  Like what matched decreases look like.  And how to ‘make one’ (for a long time, the only increase I knew was to knit into the front and back of a stitch).  Hence the waist shaping of Rosedale United are looking a lot more together and smooth than the Rosedale Un-United were.  Also, since I had steamed the hell out of the sweater in a vain attempt to get the front from curling, the Kureyon is all slightly felted – which makes it a bit hard to spit and splice for joining balls, but gives the whole sweater a slightly denser look that I’m loving.

I’ll save the rest of my analysis for when I can accompany it with pictures.  I’ve still got a few hours of weekend left before my Monday (your Thursday) gets underway, and I have some commuting socks to get started on 😉
