Yes, this is Short Attention Span Yarn Theater. Coming soon to a foot near you, Shoeless Knitting presents a Valerie production of a of a Cat Bordhi design, Star Trekking, a Sock in Motion.
**The next selection is for mature audiences only.**
After months of consideration, the producers of The Booby Square have elected to release this most scintillating sneak-preview. Abandoned for years in the bottom drawer, lonely Lottawool Yarnball finds her way through the perilous thrift store yarn bins and travels to find her destiny in a sizzling-hot dye pot. In the hands of the Knitting Madame, she becomes The Booby Square.
Okay, I can't think of any more clever movie references for the rest of this, and I need to go pay attention to the great hulking pile of dirty you-know-what that needs to be sorted into lights, mediums, darks, baby items, delicates, and things-that-need-to-be-aggressively-bleached. So here is the rest of my week-end knitting. You must agree that I have a rather short attention span. FOCUS, that's what I need. I think I'll finish the Silky Wool swatch first. This yarn is luscious.
This log cabin square is for Kristen's peanut. I was going to do a big ole log cabin baby blanket but I pooped out. I've recruited some friends o' Kristen to make more 8-inch squares out of this Cotton Fleece. I love these strong colors. I think my boys might need some afghans out of this yarn. (Yes, I know I'm delusional. I enjoy it. Dreaming up the project is 2/3 of the fun for me.)
I can't even show you the 4 swatches that I did on Saturday for the Pea Pod KAL because I ripped them all out. I'd better figure out my yarn for that one before PeeWee is too big for it.
The embarrassing thing is that these are only the works-in-progress that I'm willing to let out of the closet. Maybe I'll admit to some more next Monday.
