    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.

There’s nothing like…

Some two color-ribbing and blog reading to wake you up in the morning.

Steve Jobs supervises.

That’s Paton’s SWS in ‘Good Earth’ and LionBrand Wool-Ease in ‘Delft,’ if you were wondering. It’s destined to be a Fake-Isle hat. I threw in some two color ribbing because I’m crazy.

Suprisingly, I’m not hating the corrugated ribbing. My only problem is that SWS makes a kind of ugly cast on. And it’s curling a lot (to be expected, though). I hope a good blocking will help when I’m finished (let me live in my fantasy world where Wool-Ease will block out. I need something).

Did you finish your holiday knitting? I almost did.
