Patterny Things

Ahhh, my MagKnits pattern is up. Go knit some long-ass gloves whydoncha, except make yours look better than mine.

No posts recently because of a crochet jewelry project deadline for Lark Books. Since I spent the last couple weeks being the Magnificent Snot Factory, guzzling Nyquil is not conducive to crocheting things in itty-bitty black thread so I've been crocheting (and frogging things) like a mofo. On top of that I think I need bifocals. Then there's the two design deadlines due on the same friggin' day as the crochet project.

Why did I think I wanted to be a designer? Huh? Am I a closet masochist or something?

Or am I just a really cruel person who thinks this is a way to make more of you guys suffer? That must be it.

I've been threatened with bifocals. I've worn glasses to see everything else since I was 12, and taken them off to read, use the computer, and -- as the years go by -- most anything but drive. So bifocals would just be annoying. I'm looking at those little magnifying glasses you see at the store. I figure those would be cheaper anyway, and some of them fold up like origami.

Love love love the gloves in Magknits. Hopefully I'll knit up a pair for holiday festivities.

Suffering is my middle name, after procrastination.

The gloves were the one pattern I really loved in this issue of Magknits. Well done!

Loved the gloves in Magknits!!! I wish I were talented/had enough patience (pick one) to knit them!!!! And I was recommended bifocals..got the progressive things instead...it's nice to be able to see! LOL

Mouse said...

Excellent gloves! I wouldn't have the patience for them since I have problems just finishing a sock.. but they are definitely gorgeous.

aaaahhhi'm still having trouble with 'aphyxciation' must be the cotton I'm using, but I've nearly made enough squares to make a very nice scarf.

wow, the gloves are great and sassy . . . lol! chalk another one onto the list of things to knit, but these cut in line and are toward the top! Congrats on the pattern being published -- having all of us making what you designed -- oh, the power.

As for the life in art, don't you have to suffer to make it big -- your big time is coming . . . or it should be . . .

the gloves rly are a special species of luxurious

aaah

as for me, i think i picked the arts out of some sick attraction to permanent impoverishment

dam, now someone will steal that idea, you watch, they'll be on Jon Stewart making the $$ off my crap idea and i'll still be eating the sh*t

Karida said...

Hot gloves lady. Very nice pattern. That's so awesome!

Karen said...

What everybody else said - lovely, lovely gloves. Just as soon as I get some of the other things done...

It's only a testament to how bad my eyes are that I don't need bifocals yet - and my optomotrist said not for at least another couple of years. :(

Amy said...

Congratulations on having the only pattern in that issue of Magknits that I liked. Beautiful work.

(Oh, is there any way you could be persuaded to turn on your blog's RSS feed in the settings? This is, incidentally, the only blog I read that doesn't allow me to use my Google reader on it.)

Scott said...

I have a clear image of her in my head right now saying, "What's an RSS feed?"

Severina said...

I'd do the RSS feed but it's a Blogger Pro thingy and my chintzy little blog doesn't have it right now. I need to switch it over sometime.

Scott, just for that I'm not sending you the pelican video.

Scott said...

All Blogger blogs have a free feed and you can sign up for free feeds from other places. I use both the Blogger Atom feed and one from Feedburner. So there.

Severina said...

You're all full of yourself now that you got that pelican video, aren't ya?

Scott said...

Yep.
