Thanks for all the comments on the Tree Jacket! I really do love the way it turned out – and I think the contrasting yarn really ended up a good thing.
Meanwhile, I’ve got very little knitting to show at the moment, for some reason. I’m always knitting, but right now it just feels like nothing’s really working, you know? Not really in the groove.
Case in point, Imogen [Rav link].
Yarn is Dream in Color Classy, in Black Parade – much more blue in real life, not so brown. It’s working up really, really nicely. However…I knit up a whole ball (250 yards) before snapping out of the delusion that the sizing would work out at my gauge (which is quite different from the pattern). So I ripped the whole thing out and started again.
I probably should’ve done a provisional cast on this time, but I just don’t learn. So I’ll have to pick out my cast on edge later – oh well. The good thing is, I knit up that whole ball in just about one day…so I think I’ll be able to get back on track right quick!
Non-knitting, but cool, last night I went to Nathan Phillips Square (where City Hall is located here in Toronto, for those who don’t know) for “Wintercity”, which is a new winter festival. Saw some very cool trampoline stuff!
Two Olympic trampolinists:
One snowboarder, and one skier (Jeff Bean – some might remember him as the dude that lost both of his skis midair during the Torino Olympics):
And when it got dark, there was a huge “nights of fire” sculptural exhibit featuring, you guessed it, a whole lot of fire.
(Great photo-taking fodder.)
