If I knit one more row of broken rib, it's going to get ugly. So I'm taking a day off from the Christmas jacket and have cast on for two different caps. One is in Lamb's Pride Worsted, color Sandy Heather. The second is in the ultra-soft Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, color a rich claret red. This stuff is so nice to work with! Both caps are going to be pretty simple stuff - they're for donation purposes. I'm on the lookout for great hat patterns for Fish Guy and both the Steves for Christmas. When I told Miss A about my plan to knit for them, her eyes just lit up. You see, Fish Guy shaves his head, and it gets cold when he rides his motorcycle in the winter.
Miss A had lots of ideas about color and style...it was kind of cute, really. She and Fish Guy have been engaged six months, been together off and on about two years. It's a relationship that looks rocky from the outside, but clearly works well for them. They fight hard and they love hard. Nobody else has ever been able to call him on his shit so well, and nobody else has ever been able to make her slow down and give.
Anyway, the caps are both going well. Sometimes it's nice to be able to just crank out a project in a weekend.
I'm off to do some girly shopping with Miss Beek and Cec. Another closet cleanout this week left me with only two pairs of pants that fit. That's me all right: ten bras, all with matching panties, and at least ten pairs of high heels, but two pairs of pants. Where are my priorities? On Thursday I ended up wearing black hiphugger jeans, a black sleeveless deep-vee neck sweater and 3" suede mules to work. I swear, there was nothing else clean that fit! So it's off to The Rack, where I'll find slutty see-through nipple tops, size extra-small thong panties, and a pair of 5" tall clear lucite stripper heels. Or, if I'm lucky, a pair of flattering work-friendly pants that will fit a girl like me who actually eats once in a while. What are the odds?
