Randomly I am looking through IK at work (waiting for a meeting to finish so I can go have my meeting) and I noticed the Cascade Cable Sweater you can see some serrious skin....Did the photographer just not notice or what?
Fun things to do with your needles
I a weird girl. Kind of gross, kind of squicky, kind of feminine. Kind of. I love gross stuff, and do a lot of gross stuff. For example, I itch my ears with my knitting needles. Or stick them up my nose. I don't know why, I just do. Current Mood: amused
This isn't really TMI per se, but something actually really painful that happened to me involving a knitting needle.
I was working on something last week, I think it was the Clapotis before I frogged it completely. Anyways, I was using straight needles. I set them down when I got up. I guess the one needle that didn't have the Clapotis on it ended up leaning against the couch straight up and down. I went to sit back down, sat on the flat end of the needle, and the needle was pulled straight up and poked me in my chest HARD. It was like the effect of stepping on a rake and having it be pulled up to whack you in the face. Anyways, no puncture wound or anything, just a very unpleasant stinging jabbing pain into my ribs. Hah. Guess I'll stick to circs.
Anybody here acqure injuries from knitting?
Ooh, finally I have something to post about.
So I dyed this yarn a couple of nights ago. A wool/hemp blend. I threw it in a bowl of water and poured some off, then dumped Black Cherry Kool-Aid on half of it. Stuck it in the microwave, yadda yadda.
Thing is, only the wool took the dye. And now that I've wound it up into a ball, it kind of looks like a tampon that was the victim of a not-really-heavy flow day.
Maybe I should knit in some clots when I figure out what to make with it.
