Happy New Year!
I'll spare you the excuses for why I've been so absent from this blog and from commenting on others.
At least I can start 2007 off right by posting a finished project.
They don't come much simpler than this. It's just a simple, garter stitch on the bias scarf, with a row or two or three of eyelets thrown in here and there. I had tried using this yarn for the Lost in Translation scarf from Mother of Purl. The yarn had a bit too much going on for that pattern and I decided to rip it out. The sparkle factor of the yarn was calling to me this Christmas season so I decided to go with a simple on the bias pattern I had used before. It's not the sort of knitting project that you can find much to post about, but I like how it turned out.
To make the project more interesting here are a few self propagated rumors about why I used the Self-Conscious Mysterious Face Finished Project Photo (shown above).
1. I am practicing to become a 14-year-old YouTube girl.
2. I have a lazy eye like Paris Hilton.
3. I am the Phantom of the Opera.
4. I am curious (yellow).
5. Blog absence was necessary due to Extreme Makeover gone awry.
I finished the scarf this morning while watching the amazing documentary, Why We Fight. It was a somewhat disheartening way to start off the year, but I highly recommend watching this film. If you are so inclined, you can even view it right now via Google Video.
No various and sundry links today. I've been marking all of my bloglines subs as read for the past few weeks. I'm so behind that I might post a link to something shamefully 2006 and I can't have that!
