The Angry Eyes scarf is done, but it still needs to be blocked. I figure I'll get around to that in a month or two. It's not like I'll be wearing an alpaca scarf anytime soon.
And, being the type of person I am ... instead of picking up one of the eleventy other WIPs I have laying around ... I started a new one. This is to be an ipad carrier. I hope to finish it soon and not just add it to the pile. I really do need something to carry it around in, and why buy a carry-case when I can knit one? Amiright?
Or am I cheap?
Here's one of my handmade sweatbands after a washing. I must have dropped a stitch. I untangled it and pulled it back and re-knit it, and solemnly swore to only wash them in a garment net bag from now on.
These things really work, if you're wondering ... it's sock yarn, so it's either merino or merino/nylon, and it's light enough so that I don't feel like it's making me hotter. And they are very absorbent. I've made four, and I wore one under my ball cap when I ran outside, and didn't even feel it.
Oh ... and if you're wondering ...
Here is what poison oak looks like. If you didn't know.
I didn't know.
Thank God for steroid cream .... not only did it ease the itch and swelling, I got to pretend to go into ''roid rages' at work.
One final thing ... Dawn F. won the giveway drawing, but she never came back to tell me her address. I can't get in touch with her, because she uses google plus and there was no website or email address listed for her ... just an invitation to join google + so I could contact her. I've waited a few weeks. Should I just draw another name? I'm not sure of the etiquette. What do I do?
