It seems like it's been a long time since I posted about knitting. Oh wait! I've posted about the fair isle swatch, but that isn't knitting. That's the 5th circle of Knitting Hell (maybe someday, I'll post about the others, but I can only handle so much right now).
So. Knitting that doesn't make me want to hurt someone.
Progress on Icarus continues. This picture doesn't even begin to convey the deep, rich red of the yarn.
Also, I started a new hat for Len. This is essentially the same as a blue hat I've already made for him. My Oh-So-Limited-Color-Palette boyfriend has agreed to a blue stripe. His palette consists of gray, green and blue (he says red, too, but I have my doubts), and while the blue stripe is within the color range -- it is, in fact, left over yarn from the other hat -- he generally doesn't agree to anything so fancy as stripes. Freak.
I also knitted a bath mat. A knitted bathmat was one of my first projects, many years ago, and now they are the only kind I use. I'm obsessive that way. I'll spare you a picture since it is already in use, and who wants to see a picture of a used bathmat? If you have some sort of crazy desire to knit one of your very own, let me know and I will figure out the specs.
There has also been a bit going on on the weaving front, but I'll save that post for another day.
