Here's what else I've been doing.
It's called Woven and it's my second design project.
Here it is off a head (on the fish's bowl) and on a head (below, in the bathroom mirror).
Besides, I'm thinking it's not a huuuuge priority, given the demand. But,for the 2 of you who've asked, I'm still working on hat pattern #2 - it'll be a more involved pattern for an adult head, but since no one has even seen it, I'm guessing your lives won't change if I don't post it this week as I'd planned.
Because, people, Drops IS quick and easy and totally moving along, even in 10 minute increments. Must knit more fat yarn. Must.
Thanks to the Central Square Goodwill and my NEW LUCKY JEANS I GOT FOR $4 (yes $4!! I almost broke a leg grabbing them off the rack) my ass won't even be showing. Seems the makers of the Good Jeans know something Old Navy doesn't. Amazing. I squatted, I bent over, and I touched my toes. Nothin. Fully worth the $4 - and you know, for this kind of dependable coverage, they might even be worth the $100 they charge in the mall.
And....remember this? It's about done and it's gorgeous. Many kudos to Grumperina for a really simple but amazing pattern. No photo, but that's because the photo cord is two floors below me and I'm not walking down there again. You know the drill. I've gotten barbies, I've gotten pretzels, I've answered the phone, and I've done a few loads of laundry. But did I once grab anything useful to me? Nope. So take a look at this photo and imagine it much bigger.
And lastly on the pattern front, I'm plugging along on one more thing. I submitted something to somewhere (for the first time ever!) and I know chances it'll be published are slim to none, but i actually took the time to write it up and submit, so I'm glad to have accomplished a few real solid things - one week into my free/school time. If they turn it down, you'll see it here soon enough! Must figure out how to work that sidebar....
Cruising around on Ravelry and looking at what's out there, I realize I've come up with a few things from scratch myself - problem is I never wrote things down in complete re-knittable form. I'm apparently big on notes, not so much full commentary.
For those of you who know me, that's probably surprising. (Why yes, I CAN edit myself...)
