lack of knitting

Hummm, I haven't been talking about knitting. Probably because I haven't been knitting much!
The "never ending sweater" is not being worked on, because it's in the round and it's too darn hot to work on right now.

And the "never started poncho" is going to have to be ripped back. My daughter says this is probably the sixth time that I have done this. I think she is right. But it is biasing terribly (I know why, but it's a little too long to explain - I do know how to fix it) and I can't stand it. I have to change it. I just have to!

I got my new "Cast On" magazine from the TKGA. I'm not too impressed but hey, I think I have plenty of stuff to do. Like finish working on that Level Two Master's Knitter's program from TKGA. However, somehow, my argyle sock looks funny too. You think it may just be me?

Of course, now I want to try knitting the, ahh, how do I put this?, the humm, jock strap, there we are! from's latest issue. He won't wear it, but hey it's not a sweater and I don't want to invoke the "boyfriend curse" of knitting him something big! And he does wonder if I will knit something more besides that hat for him.

Later alligators,

I love IK

Oh my! Why didn't anyone tell me that Interweave Knits has 2 PDF indexes of all their issues published from Fall 1996 through Spring 2004 available online FOR FREE?!

Have I mentioned how much I love this magazine? :)

Wish I had more knitting content to share, but what do you expect when it's 11:30pm and we've just now turned off the a/c? Back to the wet bandana...
