Wednesday Warning of the Month

Posted on Nov 23, 2005. 0 comments

Did you know an extra half stitch per inch can result in a four inch difference in chest measurement? I'll let you ponder that for a while.
I'm going to get my hairs cut. I'll report back on the triumph or tragedy later.
I was slightly self conscious to see Harry Potter in my hand knit Harry Potter sweater because frankly the only people in the theater my age were the parents. While waiting in line one such parent asked incredulously asked us if we were seeing Harry Potter (Hello are you living under a rock? Have you not noticed my Gryffindor Sweater with the "M" plastered on the front?).
As if I didn't have enough distractions this came in the mail from WEBS

It's not that soft but I sort of suspected that from the yarn description. I do however love the color. I plan on swatching until I'm blue in the face before I start Inishmore. I'm also planning on (can you tell I haven't read through the pattern yet?) trying to knit it in the round. Maybe I am crazy.
There are two other lovely knitters working on sweaters from Fishermen's Sweaters. Lyssa is making Lochinver and Anmiryam is making Inishmore. If you'd like to join us for an impromptu Fishermen-Along drop me an email.
I'm still planning on shopping this Friday. For those unfamiliar the day after Thanksgiving is called "Black Friday" because it is the busiest Retail day during the year. I'll be sharpening my elbows Thursday night.
