Ok I think we can file this one under "anti-climatic", but here you go:
pattern: Quant from knitty.com
yarn: the dregs of Kureyon that I'd used to knit this bag
I actually used less than a ball for this cuz I didn't *really* have enough. I got some length out in the blocking process though, so in the end it was more than big enough. In fact too big and too wide for what is apparently my pea-sized head.
Super fast and fun knit...I had some issues with the finishing rows though--not sure what my problem was there, but my i-cord wound up coming off the side and not the center, but rather than go back and fix it I just cast on a few more stitches and kinda "fudged" an extra triangle or two. You'd never really notice (well you might but enh...in the end I didn't really care).
I will never wear this thing. I think the combo of granola-esque headband and my already ambivalent feelings about Noro are making this a definite re-gifter. I think I just don't know how to wear hair accessories properly...it's long been a struggle of mine (psychologically or otherwise, it's still there!) and I seldom wear my hair up, so to me it just looks weird.
You can tell I'm not feeling it, eh? (Canada day is coming soon, so i'll be throwing in as many "eh's" as I can this next month in a final surge of patriotism).
At least now I can tick Entrelac off the list, right?
We won the prize this weekend for hottest/most humid spot in the country. What is this prize you ask? Why, the maddening desire to kill of course (coupled with a sweaty, debilitating exhaustion and inability to follow through). Ironically we are still about ten degrees short of our own record. Have I mentionned how much knitting sucks in this heat? Nevertheless, I am nothing if not tenacious and another F.O is coming yer way this week. Sweaty psychosis be damned!
