So, thanks to Hook, I've gotten really into knitting. I find it to be almost zen-like - when I'm not feeling well, or need to do some serious thinking about a problem, I can just pick up my knitting and go with it. (Yes, I'm secretly an eccentric elderly spinster. For one thing, I'd have at least ten cats if my apartment were larger.) My first project was a very simple scarf, which is now over four feet long and hence quite scarf-like. It's off-white with textured stripes; maybe I'll put up a picture when it's done.

Anyhow, I figure I can start making various knitted objects for various people in my life. The current line-up looks like this:


  1. Baby booties for two friends of mine who are expecting. This should be an adventure.

  2. Slippers for the boy. (Likely v. similar to baby booties, but bigger.)

  3. Socks for Rob.

  4. A hat for Abby in the Ravenclaw colors.



Also I think Faith wanted something, and there has to be a present for Hook in there somewhere. If I've forgotten your request, or if anyone else wants a fuzzy knitted item (which probably won't get done for a good few months, given my pace of knitting), just let me know.

I think I'll be done with the scarf by October, so that means I get to go pick baby bootie colors! (Lime green? Pink? Thoughts?)

your title makes me think of a theoretical Japanese PlayStation game, played with special "knitting needle" controllers, in which the point is to correctly execute various stitches in synchronization with ever-accelerating music.

that would be Da Fuckin' Bomb, yo.

Wow ... that's even better than the maraca-shakin' game.

Wheeee!!! Hat for meeee!!!

It's rediculous how excited I am. I shall sport it proudly, especially in front of my friend who insists I am a Slytherin. Silly girl, I'm not evil!
...
Really. :-D
