I don’t usually go for these things…

But, too funny (and accurate).

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia


Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.

BLTN… or A Day in the Life of a Lazy Knitter

Though this Argyle Cardi should have been completed in a week, two at the longest, here I am wrapping it up a mere four (that is one, two, three, FOUR) weeks later. Ah, well. Luckily its the 6-9 month size, so the little guy probably hasn’t outgrown it yet.

It’s a slightly modified Debbie Bliss pattern in LB Microspun with the cutest painted wooden buttons from Hancock Fabrics. Hope they like it.

Desk Set

I wound up with some LB cashmere blend stuff – two balls in pink. Totally unimpressed by the yarn, especially at $9 each. Regardless, here’s the little warmers I keep stashed in my desk for the chilly days in the office. I loosely followed the Bow Knot scarf pattern and the wristlets are just garter stitch lengthwise. I started the wristlets with a provisional cast on, knit for a while then made a thumb hole by casting off a few and casting them back on the next row, then continued to knit until it fit around my hand snugly and grafted the end to the CO.

It feels good to be loved.

However, it makes the knitting more complicated. I’ve finally picked up the Handknit Holidays Aran Tree Skirt again. Though its life began in January (JANUARY!), it hasn’t seen the light of day since March. Now the mad rush to finish is in full swing. Instead of 1 wedge per month, I must finish 1 per week. All you fabulously conscientious knitters may scoff at such lowly goals, but I’m lazy. Note the snuggly kittens and reclining pose as proof. Right, I’m almost throught the seventh of 11.

It really is a terrific pattern. Perhaps I’ll start one for myself this January…
