just poking my head out of the PHP trenches for a minute to throw out some stuff I been meaning to tell you knitters out there.
Also, stop me if I’m the last person on the internet to find out about this, but I stumbled across a site where you can make and print out your own knitter’s graph paper, set to whatever gauge you specify. I don’t have a printer, so I haven’t test-driven it yet, but it’s definitely bookmarked.
Finally, ends are tucked in on two sweaters (and it’s like 99° outside every day – timing, much?) though I haven’t blocked them yet, and the current project while I’m watching the World Cup games, because I have to have something to distract me or I will get waaaay too emotionally involved… is a tree. I always thought it should be possible to knit a tree, using cables on a purl background. And now I have some nice smooth green cotton to work with, leftover from the strawberry and tomato baby hats I made (umm, anybody have a really new baby? The tomato hat still needs a home), so we’ll see how it goes. Remind me to dig out the battery-sucking vampire digicam and take a picture once it’s a little more identifiable.
Song du jour del día: La Araña Picua, by Los 50 de Joselito. Hard to find songs about knitters, so a song about a spider will have to do. The logic is sound, at least.
Apropos of nothing, I have no idea why the song needs to relate to the rest of the blog post. That’s a stupid limitation, I think I’ll drop it.
