Thanks to Ashley I found out about the Green Along. Given my three main sweater projects* are all green I had to join. Maybe it’ll be enough to get my butt in gear and at least finish one of them. Afterall, I cast on for Paul’s green sweater on January 1st! I really don’t want to ring in 2005 with it still as a WIP.
An IM conversation with Paul yesterday:
Paul: So I saw your little poll on the blog today
Me: Yeah? Did you vote?
Paul: No, it doesn’t matter how the vote turns out. I don’t want the cables.
Me: Are you sure? I think they’d look great.
Paul: I’m sure.
Paul: I read the comments too. Do all you knitters think we men can’t decide for ourselves? I know what I like. I have vision. I don’t want the cables.
Me: OK, OK…no cables
Last I checked the poll, with 69 votes, it was 55% in favor of no cables. So, no cables it is *sigh*
Cool Pattern Book
Oshun left a comment this morning about a new pattern book for Araucania. Bodal and Eka caught my eye because they’re a bit different, and Taltutten (knee socks) sound cool because I’ve been obsessed with knee socks. I’m going to have to see if I can find it locally.
* I know they look more brown than green, but trust me — they’re all green. Natural light is a controlled substance around here in the mornings!
