When Nate and I went to see the Bourne Supremacy, I was very interested in Julia Stiles' scarf. (A sign of how obsessed I am with knitting) Yesterday, in a fit of boredom, I googled it and found out I wasn't the only other person who wanted to copy her scarf. A whole board had devoted 5 pages of posts to try to determine what yarn it was (Berroco Medley) and what the pattern was (the jury's still out on that). Knitters Review. Amazing.

And before I forget - the lone sock. Who will forever be doomed to a life of spinsterhood because I chose the wrong type of yarn. Sigh. Posted by Hello

Here - my first attempt at lace. And using fingering weight yarn. Results? A little scarflet and a resolution to not knit for a few days... Posted by Hello

A shift in focus

After a long conversation with Kami Sunday, I think this blog is going to get a new title. This weekend, I made good progress on sewing my Halloween costume, finished knitting the back of my sweater, and baked a pie. Combined with the curtains I altered (to cover my cabinets) and the redecorating I did last week, I am, in Kami's words, filling in Martha Stewart's void. I'm becoming far too domestic. Must go out more!

Though I am pretty happy with my new sweater :) I say that now.....who knows if it'll actually fit.

They say that if you have a dream in a foreign language you've become fluent. When I ordered a quarter pound of ground beef at the meat market on a class trip to Germany, I felt I was at least on my way.

However, when I started to stare at the cuffs of my sweater in an attempt to discern the knitting pattern, I knew it had gone too far. Though I hold to the idea that a few well-placed yarn overs in the knitted rows of stockinette would make for a nice design. Sigh.

And you are?

You are Mohair
You are Mohair.You are a warm and fuzzy type who works well with
others, doing your share without being too
weighty. You can be stubborn and absolutely
refuse to change your position once it is set,
but that's okay since you are good at covering
up your mistakes.

What kind of yarn are you?
