i kid you not

i just took one f.o off of the blocking "mat", (and by mat i mean towel on the floor) wove in buttons.. and within the hour, have another item blocking.

 ..can you guess what this is?
i know. i'm such a tease :)

honestly though, my needles have been on fire. good thing though, because i really needed my smaller needles. today is the big cast on day for the summer sweater knit along! wahooo!!! i'm off to a playdate straight away.. and you can bet my sweet georgia yarn in oxblood will be joining me!



 so so excited. would you believe i haven't knit with sweet georiga yet? for realz. i talk about it all the time... but this will be my first project! and yes. it's for me ;) what will it be? well jane richomond's gerogia cardi, of course. this sweater has been in my que for ever. and i've been dreaming of casting on for months. i'm not joking people. :)

yah. super excited! and of course, there's another button for the knit along! wahoo! thanks shan.

  6. Does this make the last yarny to have not knit with Sweet Georgia? I NEED to get some. I think it's a moral imperative, or something like that.

  7. Augh - I love that pattern! I wish some of you guys would knit something ugly for once so that I wouldn't have to add so many patterns to my queue. And how awesome is a yarn called Oxblood?
