New deadline for sizequeen needle project...

OK, I think I freaked some guys out with the idea of designing and knitting a superbulky sweater in 6 weeks. So.... Howabout the by the beginning of May. There might just be a night cold enough in those northern climes to wear a sweater jacket.

Incidentally I found in my stash a huge bag of yarn called Griffolk that is very lofty. I'm knitting it either trebled or quadrupled on 15's. 2 st/in. I did swatches to test various patterns, and by the time I had was done (2 hours or so) I realized I had a panel the size of one front on a cardigan. It does REALLY go fast.

C'mon guys! Pull up your big-guy britches and whip out your big sticks. Let's make some manly sweaters!

well, we will see how fast it goes...I have delicate little hands...not so nimble with sizequeen needles...But I am willing to work those great big hunks of wood to get just the right speed for a clean finish.

May is definitely more reasonable with my current schedule!

Delicate little hands? Yeahrite! Why, you're just a "petite flower of lovliness" you are!

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Petite flower of!! I have been called many things in my life, but never petite...flower or lovely....

Lovliness....I think that's more your area of expertise...gentleman that you are.

I'm just a pig in a nice sweater.

Did you know the French don't have a word for "double entendre?"

Isn't that just like the French?!

whereas English has the highest percentage of words and phrases with double entendre of any spoken language on earth.
