The Shocking! Skirt is in the works. There are no good pictures in the magazine or online anywhere to help me out with any close-up details of this thing. I’ve completed one panel, and it’s going well–the skirt is pretty straightforward–but I hit a small snag and as a result I’m rejiggering the pattern a bit. Annie and I dissected and discussed it tonight, and I feel pretty confident with my new direction. I’ll give full notes upon completion, especially because by then I’ll know for sure if it’s a good change.

Or, just because I’m insane.
Or, just because I’m a show-off.
Or, just because it started to be a game.
Or, just because there’s no possible way I’ll keep this up after tonight, but I had to at least try!
That’s right folks. FOUR finished objects in FOUR DAYS. Is this a PR? Oh yeah. I’m no marathoner like my dad, but this was a knitting marathon, of sorts.
A dear friend from college, for whom I was a bridesmaid, just had her first baby yesterday! I knit the (secret from the blog) purple sweater for her, but I am still at work on the pattern and haven’t mailed it off yet. (It wouldn’t fit her yet anyway.) I couldn’t resist posting the photo that was sent around, however, of Linnea in her adorable knit hat–what a fabulous pattern. I didn’t knit it, and I don’t know who did, but is this not the cutest thing!?
I just had to share this story with you all, because it made me so happy.
Last Thursday I stayed up past 1am to finish knitting Mr Mumbles for our friend before the boy left for a weekend with the guys. He got back Sunday night and started telling me about the trip, when I cut him of—did you remember to give Mr Mumbles to AC?
