Hi kids!

hopefully my computer will be done in the next few days or so.

and here's a picture that will make you think ernie's well trained. he's not, he didn't know he had food on his head.


but in the meantime, knitting! and for those of you who come here for these shots for purposes other than admiring my knitting, i say thpbllllllllllllllllll, and i get it.

before i show you this, i will say i went through these pics and chose the ones which were the least racky because, honestly, i'm not trying to do racky pictures.

on that note, lelah v.2

lelah close lelah finished morelelah

FO report:

pattern: lelah from knittingforboozehags.com
yarn: lion brand microspun in royal blue:
needles: addi turbos 8s and 7s
started: dunno
finished: dunno (i'm all about the details, clearly)
mods: made it a halter, added short rows. I did about 3 inches regular, wrapped 5 stitches on each side for short rows, knit a few more rows, split it up the middle, and fudged it til it looked about right, then knit the straps up and kitchenered them together. poorly.

That is extremely flattering on you.

The color is so nice, too.

we don't really care *why* you do racky shots, as long as you keep on doing so...

Sweet! Love the short rows! (embarassing fact- I STILL can't wrap my mind around how to do short rows!)
Thanks for the congrats on Nia!
From one bosom buddy to another-
Love, Christine

1)What? There are photos that are more racky?! And you didn't show them?! Show us rack.

2) I like this thing. I will admit that when you showed it earlier, I thought it was going to turn out horribly. I am so impressed by your knitting skillz.

3) In looking at the background of your photo, you live next door to someone with an extensive collection of old bathroom scales. In my head, there is banjo music playing...

yay christine! thanks! really, there has to be an a-ha! moment before short rows make sense, but once they do it's magical.

1. no.
2. first, i'll pretend you didn't mean that. and never doubt me or my skillz.
3. they're paint cans. (insert music from deliverance here)
