First off, the new Journey front man is AMAZING! Here, have a video:



I also just started listening to Lime & Violet. How I did not know about them is beyond my scope of reasoning because they are super awesome. I mean, really, really awesome.

The new Knitty is out, and it is AMAZING. Jeanie is probably my FAVORITE! Honestly though, all the patterns are amazing.

So I saw the Toirneach Kilt Hose and IMEDIATELY had to make them for Chris. Of course, I knew that I couldn't surprise him with them, because I'd have to measure his feet and HUGE calves. That and there was a chance he would go "Wow hunny... those are... nice...? Maybe... I love you?" and than I would be in tears and it would be messy. So I showed them to him and he LOVED them, so we are going to order a color card for the Knit Picks Swish Superwash and than when he decides on the color, we'll order the stuff for it and I'll make it. I have a feeling he's going to choose the new Heather Redish color that comes out in January. But he's really excited.

I like MagKnits okay, they don't have the best patterns, but sometimes they are pretty good. Like the Zombies Need Not Apply, which is one of my favorite patterns EVER! Anyway, there aren't many patterns in this issue, and there are only 2 that I would consider making. I was pretty disapointed. I liked Five Fruits and Excuses.

A small note about excuses. IT COMES IN BIG GIRL SIZES! OMG! Thank you Nikki Adams for thinking about the girls with some body!

I've been working on THE CLAP! It's honestly the easiest and most repetetive pattern out there. But I'm really enjoying it. I'm down to decreasing, as I've decided to give the scarf to my oldest daughter, Lelia, so she can run around and DRIVE PEOPLE CRAZY pretending to be Hannah Montana. I'll get some footage for you guys. Because he Christmas Present is going to include the "How to drive the people you live with crazy pretending to be Hannah Montana" collection. I'll post crappy pictures of this package after I have it purchased and wrapped.

Clapotis


Once again, I am very, VERY sorry for my terrible photo taking skills. Really, really sorry.

    Your clapotis is lovely and you will love it once it's done. I can honestly say I've used mine more than any other of the things I have knit.

    And you're welcome for the larger sizes. I think Exuses will be flattering to all body types, but actually particularly to people who are, um, more endowed than me. :)
