I've been cheating, its true. Such a faithless and fickle woman that I am, I could not resist. The temptation was too great, and the experience too exciting and sweet. I would feel guilty if it hadn't just been so deliciously GOODDDDDDDDD. The pleasure of the forbidden, that first amazing touch and indulging in the decadent desires, with the sweet twinge of guilt. You can stone me later.
I'm a yarn whore, and unrepentant!
Behold, Rowan 37's Butterfly -one strand of KSH in black and one strand of Kid Silk Spray in a cranberry color. The resulting combination is a black cherry with the occasional cranberry fleck... fan-tastic. I tried working on Butterfly during a knit night at Noble Knits on Wednesday night, but she refused to be unappreciated like that, and after reknitting the same three rows about 6 times, I went back and begged Eleanor to take me back. Ripping KSH wasn't really as bad as how people seem to think, and having a life line at the beginning of the last repeat made it pretty painless actually.
And eventually, filled with shame and reluctant remorse, I find myself returning to the safe and comfortable relationship, knowing it would still be there waiting for me. Good thing that Eleanor isn't the jealous type, although I think that she leaves little angora hairs all over me on purpose, kind of like her version of pissing on my leg. She's the Maryanne of knitting, consistent, dedicated, and not to challenging while knitting with other people.
Eleanor is perfect for in the car knitting, or knitting with other people. Interesting enough to keep me from going comatose, but the pattern is easy enough to memorize after a few repeats. This is about 1.5 skeins into it.
On Sunday was some Whistlestop knitting, where we met a new person - Kerry whom I pulled over from the bar cause she was sitting by her lonesome and we assimilated her. Hopefully we'll see her regularly at the knitting meet ups. In attendance were:
Oh. and I missed all you guys too :) Was just being lazy and knitting guiltily on my own.
P.S. - best Google search that found my blog? "Nancy+ass" - I got junk in my trunk and all that.
