the post with pictures

i may very well be in a knitting funk. either that, or i'm out of inspiration.

i've turned the heels and am half through a lace repeat in elfine's socks. but i feel like there's a "this far and no further". i can't tell what's up with that, but here's where they stopped:

elfine's socks
(if i haven't mentioned it lately, click for many sizes)

and because it's funnier that way, here - i've painted them blue:
smurfine's socks

however, i have started designing my first wearable! it's a cardigan, and i'm not going to post WIP shots of this because it's a learning process, not a sweater. if it comes out looking like crap, that will be my rationale. if it's earthshatteringly goregeous, i'll sell the damn pattern and call it "not a sweater". (as discussed over KIPP with alpineflower) i've changed the design and the gauge, but not after doing a bunch of maths and charts and diagrams. here's some of the maths that have been rendered irrelevant at this point:

yes, my handwriting is schizo.

while i'm picture posting... i noticed today that my doodling is both very orderly in its layout, and mostly seems to resemble, er, the sacred feminine:

as well as snails and "country feedback" lyrics
stuff 003

Hooray for doodles.

mariama, you only say that because you long to return to the mother ship. (;

I suck for not making it to Caribou- I'm so sorry. Neither child took a nap yesterday and I'm not sure who was more demonic- them or me.

Just below your math, you need to draw a line and write "Everything explodes!"

Then leave it on a plane.
