knitting liar

raspberry ballet top

yes,
i am a liar.
i meant
to get my
secret squirrel project
done
but i got sick
and
sat around
moaning
and kniting
all weekend.
grub brought me
a cupcake.

nice boy.

best cupcake in d.c.

i am obsessed,
really really
obsessed
with getting
rid of yarn
by knitting
it all up
at lightning speed.

here
are some
works
in progress:

february sweater w.i.p.
{my yellow vacation sweater}

baby blanket w.i.p.
{baby blanket #1}

balthazar vest w.i.p.
{blue vest}

okay...
more
on
the project soon.
promise.

now
i have to go
teach
students
how
to pull
apart
grasshoppers.
it's
a smelly job
but someone
has to do it.

I can't decide if I'm more jealous about the cupcake or the sweater.... If you tell me you ate the cupcake while wearing the sweater I may never read your blog again...

The baby blanket is going to be gorgeous! And bravo to Grub for the cupcake delivery.

God, are you are liar...? I'm very happy to meet someone who has the honesty to lie...

I'm envious of your cupcake gift AND of your mad knitting skillz.

AND of your students...do they KNOW who they are dealing with, here? ;)

adore the baby blanket! will you share the pattern?

Jane said...

It's impossible not to use up those odds and ends, isn't it. I crocheted a giant blanket because I had a lot of leftovers& when it was finished I was really sad!

Love the vibrant colours you chose, you have been busy! Hope you get your projects finished soon (wish I could knit too). Enjoy your cupcake...

Baked and Wired!!!! They make the best cupcakes in DC - the strawberry ones are to die for. I have a giftcard burning a hole in my wallet that I need to use.

Hope the knitting is coming along!
I have to say though-the star of this post is that cupcake! OMG it looks amazing...

I love your banner ... and yeah when you get an idea about some i.e. yarn into useful production it consumes you ... Unfortunately I get consumed by several things at once so my house is a mess of half finished stuff
