Son of Stitch N' Bitch!

Yesterday at work, three male co-workers alerted me to the existence of Son of Stitch N' Bitch; two were excited by a pattern for a disemboweled teddy bear, whilst the other was very into the Lucha Libre balaclavas.

I find it disturbing that [non-knitting] boys at work knew about a new knitting book before I did.

"Something," I said to the Boy, "is not right about this." He agreed, and then reminded me about how much he liked the Lucha Libre masks.

He is, I think, hinting.

In other news, I am--and you might want to brace yourselves for this news--still working on the Feather & Fan Shawl.

I have six more rows to knit, and then a long and convoluted crocheted edging/bind-off to do. Since I have misplaced the pattern book, this crocheted edging will be an adventure.

Anyway, my knitting-related goal is to FINISH the Feather & Fan Shawl of Doom by the end of this month, and then move on to something fun to work on during the traditionally uber-stressful month of December.

A Lucha Libre balaclava, perhaps?


Hey!! How about I make you a copy of the pattern like you asked me to do several times before and I have completely forgotten to do! :)) Email me your addy and I will snailmail it to you. Knitting this week looks like it will be at Knit & Purl seeing as how Chaun is teaching a class that half our group signed up for. I will be out of town so it may be awhile before I see you next. Email me, m'kay??

Ooh, um, that would be really nice because... I am thinking of knitting ANOTHER shawl.

(I am going to post about the shawl now, so I will go do that instead of spoiling you via comment.)
