I'm making a hooded pullover from the big fat knitting book mom got at costco, and it has me bind off like EVERYTHING. And that WOULD be okay, but have you ever tried picking up stitches from a bound-off edge in Lion Homespun? Egads. It's really freakin' hard. I don't think I'll do THAT again. If I ever make this sweater again, I will NOT bind off, I'll just put the stitches on another needle or a stitch holder. That's what they're FOR after all.

I decided to make my cthulhu chullo because, damn it, for 1.77 a skein it's not like i can't afford to use the yarn on a frivolous project! Look, I started it. I plan to make i-cord tentacles. Oh, it'll be so great.

No pictures! OH!

yarn was on sale today, so I bought five skeins of homespun to make myself a new huge sweater because my old huge sweater, which I've worn for like ten years, is kinda falling all apart. So sad! But the new one is gonna be DAMN soft.
I also bought a skein of wool-ease because a) it was only $1.77 and b) I wanna make a hat. I'm thinking of doing the "Lady" hat at http://www.spunkyhats.com/boogie_3hat.htm but I'm also thinking, since I got a dark and kinda warmish green color (Loden), this might be a fun time to make the "Cthulhu chullo" I dreamed up a few weeks ago because I liked the way it sounded (am I shallow or what?) I would make it using http://flor.trix.net/chullo.htm for the reference on that hat and good ol' google for references on Cthulhu.
Also I figured nobody else would have one. But it's maybe a little beyond my abilities.
Yesterday mom bought one of the hugest books I've ever seen, by Leisure Arts. It has lots of pages. Heeee!

Little Green Bag

I'm putting up, as my first post in my knitting-only blog, a picture of my recently created knit hemp bag.
