Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  This is my 50th post!
in case anyone thought i slipped off the face of the earth, i am, in fact, still here! my knitting has just been terribly boring lately, so i haven't had much to post. on the needles, i have the slooow going mon petite chou, miles of black stockinette for kellen's sweater, and some plain stockinette socks for me.

however, Jaime tossed a curve ball into my projects last time he was over. he said he wanted slippers. i had already bought the mandatory Orange and White to make him some fibertrends felted clogs back at christmas, but he insisted he would never, ever, ever wear anything knitted. i finally talked him down to admitting he might wear something knitted at home, if it was really cool, but never in public. that was in december, and i had dropped the subject thinking he'll come around eventually. like when he's 40.

you can imagine how thrilled i was when he finally admitted he wanted slippers. i pulled out the fibertrends pattern and the size 13 circ... and then he said, "no, not that kind. like lukes's! He wanted orange fun-fur monster slippers. i might be crazy, but the idea didn't sound too bad. maybe it's because of the aforementioned miles of black for kellen's sweater. orange sounded goood. we agreed on the Fuzzy Feet pattern, and went down to the craft store and bought 4 skeins of the fuzzy crap. (i ended up only needing two and half. how come that never happens with the good stuff?) and i cast on:
i'm off to felt them today. we'll have to see if he actually wears them now.
Pssstttt! It's your secret pal stopping by to say hello! I am super excited to have you as my pal! I lived in McKinleyville for a while. It was a great time....I got engaged in Trinidad, and married while living there. Great memories of that newlywed stage. ;-)
