camisole tube is 98% finished

i restarted it on saturday night and finished knitting it last night. i'm in the process of crocheting the straps, it needs blocking, and end-weaving. this time, i did it in size XS because i totally wear that size.

(crickets chirp)

well, shut up, it was good for my ego.
anyhow, here's what happens when you use a too big yarn for the pattern and don't swatch carefully enough.

here's what happens when you downsize to a size XS with the same yarn and needles:

anyhow, i'm posting this from school since this is what i can do. and my friend scott wondered what i was doing posting these sorts of pictures of myself... um, it's KNITTING. it's not anything else.

i also finished knitting jenifer's t twist tee. something happened when i joined the sleeves - my knitting got stoopid and it was like i forgot how to regulate tension. jenifer, i'll take proper pictures once it's been blocked and hopefully i can yank some of the tension back into place. in the meantime:

i like this fun concept, good neckline, yay jenifer!- it's in supafly 10 cotton, but a full FO report later kiddos..

I can't relate to wanting an ego boost at all.

What is that like?

thomas - i'm surprised you can see the computer screen over the muscles.

a-s - well whatever filthiness you read into it is your business

jess - if i knew how to remove them for knitting shots, believe you me, i would.

chris - you're welcome.

a-s - oh, my newfound ego boost will wither up if you hand me a shirt in size XS.

littlegoat - i have found a way to infuse nutrients in yarn so that they enter my body through my skin thus eliminating the need to eat. if i'm not sleeping enough, i add some speed to the yarn.

semaphoria - how could i deny you anything my lovely? and someone has a birthday coming up anyway...

monstee - i knew i liked you.

h-g - i'm just trying to make myself more attractive to you.

cherz - i'd totally smack you if i had any idea as to what you were talking about. you're such a banana problem.
