One more tease before I actually have FO pics to share. This is the chevron edge of my WestKnits Fadealong Shawl, a faded Dotted Rays! It’s amazing! And you’ll always be able to find me in a crowd when I wear it! Hopefully it’ll make FO Friday this week!
As for projects on the needles, don’t worry…got plenty of those too!
Finally started a pussy hat for myself. I don’t like pink so I figured if I’m doing it, I should really do it. It’s from White Birch Fiber Arts. Her yarns are amazing but typically sock yarns. The striping definitely works best for socks so I didn’t have much reason to buy her yarns. Until…I found worsted weight at her booth during Stitches! Woot! Instant Pussy Hat Gratification here I come!
And, I’ve got the last of the horrible acrylic that shall not be named cast on too! I was summoned for jury duty yesterday. Not knowing what courthouse security would be like, I opted for the yarn I wouldn’t miss in the event of confiscation. No worries there though. I got to hurry up and wait with all the knitting I wanted!
Doing a basic brioche in the round cowl with it. I’m really loving the color play. I don’t necessarily like either of the colorways on their own but together in two color brioche, they’re really shining! So, back to the courthouse today, hopefully I can squeeze in more knitting time. The judge might want our attention though. Who does he think he is?
And here’s a couple random photos I’ve been meaning to share. There’s a large yarn bombing installation down by city hall. The goal of this civic minded project (because it’s a paid art installation, with lots of public input) is to connect the sprawling Civic Center Plaza with UN Plaza across the street. I don’t think they’ve accomplished that goal. Not to mention, if yarn bombing alleviated the problems created by homeless drug addicts leaving biological excretions on the sidewalks, San Francisco could be a much, much, cleaner city.
At any rate, before I go off on too many tangents, here’s the pictures. It’s kinda fun. They think it’s going to be there for 2 years. I think they have no idea how much maintenance it’s going to require.
It looks good for now though.
