Knit Night!

As some of you know, my betrothed, Jesse works at Half Price Books on Capitol Hill. They have been trying to have more community minded activities at the store and they asked if I would lead a knit night there once a month. I said yes and now I'm scheduled to host one this Wednesday at 7pm!

There will be free refreshments and me. What could be more enticing?

That's at:
Half Price Books
115 Belmont Ave. E.

Hope to see you there! But if you can't make this one there will be another May 16.

Finished Noro Object

This sweater took a long time for me, over a year. I definitely learned a lot from it. It was only my second set in sleeve, I'd never knit a sweater side to side and it has my first all crocheted edging. Whew!

It's a little brighter than I thought it would be, but that's Noro for you.

Here's me enjoying it in the wild.

There are still enough chilly days left in Seattle to enjoy this sweater, and yes, my boots too!

McDonalds Madness

I spent most of my knitting time this month making McDonalds Mittens. I think I could knit one in my sleep, blindfolded, without the pattern. They were quite simple to knit to begin with repeat a few times and... well we all needed some iced coffee.

Here's Shannon enjoying her McDonalds iced coffee with a nice mitten to keep her warm.

To get serious for a moment, I do want to say this blog is not a McDonalds commercial.

I did consider the fact that I am taking money from a corportion I don't respect or admire. For me, it's ok because it is money flowing in one direction. From them to me. I don't buy McDonalds products and didn't buy these.

If knitting a mitten is wrong, I don't want to be right. Capeche?

Let's not talk about fast food for awhile. Now that I have my hands back I do want to get going on my wedding dress. Remember that?
