Hot Sticky FridayUgh. Temperatures in the 90's + almost 100% humidity = bad atmosphere for knitting. So, rather than starting on the rather more substantial front of my dad's vest, I opted instead for light, fluffy, relatively mindless knitting. Ah, the joys of the novelty yarn scarf. Plus, as an added bonus, I'm making it for my roommate (who loves all things pink), although I think I'll also need one of my own... I've dubbed it the "sorbet scarf" due to the totally yummy lemon/orange/strawberry color scheme.
I did finish the vest back, however, before I let myself start on the sorbet...
So far so good in terms of the shape, so hopefully it'll end up fitting him. I'll have to figure out the shaping for the front v-neck, but hopefully it won't be too hard. Then some side and shoulder seams, and some ribbing along the neck and each armhole, and I'll be done! I *think* I'll even have a bit of yarn leftover, too!
Remember how I had wonderfully delicious grilled steak on Monday? Well, I offered Cricket a piece of said steak, and she wouldn't even lick it. As if I had offered her something truly insulting to her palate. Well, apparently I should have just offered her caramel corn instead, because she loves it. She doesn't just lick it... no, she actually eats the whole kernel. And then spends a few minutes trying to wash/lick the stickiness off her mouth. She won't even sniff steak, but she'll eat caramel corn. What a goofball!
(but she's cute!)
