faster than labor booties.

If a person were to get a text message that her pal went into labor at 3:38AM and then you got up and went to the yarn store after it opened and bought some angora. Then knit them up while watching a few episodes of the office. And finally, blocked them, odds are there would still be no baby. Hmm, I wondering if I could pop them in the mail and they'd be in Albany before the baby arrives. I"ll post finished pics after it dries. I meant the booties but that could totally go for the baby too. I"m so excited cause we don't know if it's a boy and a girl. I think I will love the baby even though baby owes me money. ( I lost the pool that the baby would be born on Friday.) It's never too early to start a resentment...Kidding.

The official name of the pattern is' angel booties' but I prefer 'faster than labor booties'. Knit up on size 5 dpn's and plymouth angora in a teal. I have no idea what consists of a gender neutral colors. I think colors are for everyone yet laugh to myself when men wear super fruity colors. I'm a total hypocrite.

And now some quotes from Juno.

Vanessa: I wanted to pick something gender-neutral for now. Once we get the baby, god willing, we can create a more decisive palette.

Mark: Why do people think yellow is gender-neutral? I don't know one man with a yellow bedroom.

hand dyed by knit or die

I didn't think Erin could surprise me as my secret Santa but she certainly did. Because I organized the Chicks with sticks holiday swap I knew she was my pal. A long distance love pal at that. She surprised me with some hand dyed cascade 220. The fash ruined the gloriousness of colors but there just isn't any sun in WNY until at least May. Thanks Erin. I don't know what I'll knit just yet... French market bag? felted clogs? hmmmm.

this place is a zoo

I was trying to take a photo of the trinity stitch hat and as usual, the hound wouldn't leave me alone. He loves to be in front of the camera but he is also really uncooperative. I decided to go with it. Got a few blurry photos taken before kitty needed to feel included. So here is a photo montage of me and my boys and the trinity stitch beret. Which by the way is killer on the hands. That purl three together was massacre.
