Hardcore

Some weeks, you just need to start an intricately cabled pullover to take with you as commuter knitting in the morning.

(Like you do.)

Sadly, apparently, some weeks you also forget to bring your camera with you to photograph such a hardcore decision. Le sigh.

(Pattern in question, incidentally, is ‘Portland’ from the book A Fine Fleece. It’s going to be delicious.)

But at least you’ll still have a nice lanolin smell all over your hands when you start your day.

(Because if typing can remind you of wool, I don’t see how that can be a bad thing).

Carry on, Thursday, carry on.

(But don’t think I haven’t noticed that it’s only one more day until the weekend. I’m onto you.)

    You know, sometimes I wish for a bit more of a commute just for the knitting time. 3 metro stops is not enough time to knit a round on a sock, much less start an intricately cabled sweater!

    I’m impressed! I can’t really focus on much more then a sock or a simple shawlette on my 20 min. commute!

  3. Almost makes me wish I had a commute!

    Almost. ;)

  4. I’m at the exact opposite point. My current train knitting – a “lace every row” lace knee-high scok – is just too much for me now. Last night I CO a 2×2 rib and stockinette sock and it was wonderful. Actually, that’s about to become the topic of today’s blog post :-D

    I’ll have to learn to knit while riding my bike on my daily commute. I love sheepy wool smell!

  6. shshshshhhh,,, don’t remind the bad spirits or they will take the weekend away before you can notice it was here! joking,,,

  7. I’ll gear this review to two types of people: current Zune owners who are considering upgrading, the ones attempting to decide between a Zune and an ipod. (There are more players worth taking into consideration available, such as the Sony Walkman X, but I hope thus giving you enough info to create the best decision from the Zune vs players besides ipod and iphone line too.)
