Stitchy McYarnpants

Confessions of a husband-neglecting, cat-shooing, yarn-hoarding knitaholic. But in a good way.

Thursday, September 09, 2004

Well, I have joined my first "-Along" and I'm very excited! It's Knit-o-Rama's Man-Along! My entry is the Manly Sweater from Stitch n' Bitch.

I'm making it with an 80% Merino Wool/20% Cashmere blend in a tweedy Olive. No stripe, please.

The Man-Along is also a contest. There will be a prize for the best-looking sweater AND the best-looking sweater wearer. Oh the primping we will do! I'm going to make hubby look like he's just spent a week in the bathroom with Kyan! (mmmmm . . . Kyyyaaaan)

You want your husband to have a week-long gay affair? So what are you going to be doing while he's otherwise occupied? *wiggles eyebrows*

As long as he came out of there with a decent shave and supple skin, The Hub and Kyan could do whatever they wanted!

Hey, glad to see the website update went well, it looks great! I hear you on Running With Scissors, maybe I'll check out Sedaris next. I have not read him before. I very much loved Geek Love, it's one of my favorites. You're also right on not enough cars with flames. My dream car as a teen was a black karmengia (sp?) with flames (part Pretty In Pink, part Grease). Maybe I'll see you at the Knit Out on Sunday??

Good luck on the blog and the Manly Sweater. My yarn should be here in a few days, so we will have to compare progress in a few weeks. You have a great start already!

I have 2 lbs of this yarn as well. I'm using size 8 needles and the guage was spot-on! It seems like it'll be plenty. I'm making size small, so I may even get a scarf out of it! Also, the yarn doesn't feel that great when you're knitting it up, but make a swatch and wash it, you'll be glad you did!
