One week! In a week's time I will be going to see Alice Cooper. I can't believe it and I am aboslutely still excited. If it turns out to be not good (highly unlikely) I will be disappointed.
I didn't work on the Devil Hat last night, this is very bad since I want it done by next Friday. I will work on it tonight and all weekend. I think it will knit quickly - now if only I could get it to knit itself like Mrs Weasley's knitting.....
Something else exciting I haven't talked about was the Bendigo Shade Card which arrived on Tuesday. For their new wool, I don't remmebr it's name but it's got a bit of everything in it. I would have liked a more diverse choice of colours personally.
Another something I haven't talked about is the Deadman's Hoodie. It's kind of in limbo because I'm trying to decide if Bendogo's 12 -ply would be a suitable substitute for the yarn specified in the pattern. The question of gauge bamboozles me. The pattern is knit on 6mm needles and gets 14 stitiches, Bendigo 12-ply knits up on 6mm to 16 stitches. I'm hesitating to purchase the wool until I can decide if it will make a major difference or not.
For those not up on this conversation, I decided to take the pattern for the Boyfriend Hoodie in the first Vogue Knit 1 ( I still haven't got the second one yet - I couldn't find any at Kings Meadows when I went out.) and add the free skull pattern from Domknitrix to the sleeves creating a Deadman's Hoodie!
Now that I have dazzled you with my blindingly creative genius of an idea, go on admit it you were dazzled! I'm going to admire people who are really creative - Glampyre is one of my faves.
Until next time,
A bona fide devilish red head and damn proud of it.
