is it wrong to tell everyone that i love something i made? i know it’s not necessarily socially acceptable except in the company of other knitters, but is it really wrong?
because i do like this hat so much. maybe even as much as i like the matching mitts.
please excuse the self-executed photos—i just couldn’t get david out of bed for this today.
right now i’m calling this set lacunae, which is a really cool word i learned in college. my first year, i went to a nursing program (i know—long story, but suffice it to say that though i loved the book work and the patients immensely, fitting into a hospital hierarchy in the 70s was not meant to be) and one of my favorite subjects was anatomy and physiology. this is just one word i learned in that class that i’ve always remembered—i love the way it rolls off the tongue and how it sounds so much like what it is. it’s one of those words that you can guess the meaning of just from listening to it pronounced slowly. i think of lacunae as little space cocoons.
which is what this knit fabric is
yum; i can’t wait to wear them.
i also finished the second spiraluscious mitt and it’s been soaked and dried
what a difference from this, eh? never underestimate the power of blocking for putting a nice finish on a knit item. have i showed you the back of the glove lately?
so we are all set except for some nice pictures.
and ps, i think i’m going to keep that sock i was obsessing about yesterday. i might knit it up in another yarn for the actual pattern photos, too. we’ll see . . .
ok, i hate to cut this short, but my cousin just called and we decided to meet at the art museum in a little bit, so i’m gonna dash. hopefully, there will be something bloggable going on there.
