after Warren's glowing recommendation i ordered the Jacqueline Fee book and i just got it......excited about the process of working through it. i've been working on a hooded pullover sweater and decided to rip everything out. holding the back panel up....i was overcome by a tremendous dissatisfaction......the work so far was just sub par and only excuse i can lob is work has been a madhouse with 3 people off schedule for awhile so i've been providing coverage at the hospital above and far beyond my normal 80 hrs/week. when my feet hurt, i can't knit worth crap. i am finishing up one project almost on time. a dear friend has redecorated her bedroom and bath and wanted washcloths in a brilliant blaze orange colour but in a pattern that would satisfy her "Goth" and "DeathMetal" bent. so, 6 were done using the skull and crossbones pattern Jeff Shafer has posted here and 6 were more traditional. i thought of doing the remaining six using logos for bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Biohazard, and Christian Death but have been too tired/lazy/unmotivataed to fight with Excel to chart 'em. working the skull and crossbones was fun the first two times, but i contemplated falling on my size 35 bamboo needles for the last 4 times. no pattern is THAT fun, y'knowhutimean?
y'all be good and stuff,
