Did I ever tell you about the awesome Pride Marigold socks? Oh, yes. Yes, I did. In freaking February. Well, they've been done since April... But their insane brightness saturates my camera in a hideous way.
There is further evidence of my vanishing knitting mojo:
Exhibit A: The Lying Gauge Swatch.
I bought some Habu Shosenshi paper yarn about 3-4 years ago, with no specific project in mind. I thought it had an amazing texture, ok? I had no idea what to make with it until I saw the Chinese Style Pullover from Setsuko Torii's Habu book. *drool* Instead of wasting my newly purchased yarn on a swatch, I decided to swatch with the older yarn. It turns out that the new batch of yarn is *much* thinner than the older batch. I only figured this out when I had knit the entire front (or back, they're the same).
Swatch on the right, completed front on the left.
Exhibit B: Fiddly Finishing Failure.
The Flutter Sleeve cardi needs one button band (out of 2) and some finishing on one sleeve. Great pattern, meet impatient knitter.
