FO: Friday Rainbow makin


My first FO since the last FO. I really haven't been finishing too many projects. I currently have Second Sock Syndrome and I have it bad. Good thing about shawlettes though. When one is done that is it. No pesky second shawl to knit before it is actually done. Most of them though are knit flat rather than in the round. I am a die hard in-the-round type of girl, but the little shawls (or as I like to call them Hipster Scarves) are just so dang cute.


Take this one for example, miles and miles of garter stitch. Now I am not one of those that find garter stitch comforting. More than anything I find it annoying. But for rainbows the miles of annoying garter stitch are kind of worth it. Because just look. Isn't it pretty?


I am a sucker for rainbow yarn. Especially when it turns out to look like this.

I'm showing it off unblocked because it is Friday and I am impatient. Blocking won't do this piece that much good anyways. It'll even out the stitches but ultimately there is no lace to stretch out. I was planning on finishing casting off last night, but then I got sleepy. And then I got in a twitter argument with a friend. Have you ever tried to argue back and forth in 140 characters? It's actually kind of hard.

But enough of me blabbing. And more to me knitting more rainbows (after I do my dishes, clean my room, and other responsible adult-like things)

Hipster Scarf. HAHAHAHAHA. SO funny. So true.

I'm a quality over quantity person myself, so I wouldn't get too discouraged over the number of projects you're finishing as long as their all wonderful when their done!

LOVE the scarf! Wonder how it would look with my sexy mom jeans? Killer, no doubt.
I imagine a twitter argument, if nothing else, would force one to chose their words very carefully. Or, on the other hand, leave little option other than to say, "F YOU", "NO, F YOU" over and over again. Perhaps you two should make up on Facebook?

That last photo makes me so happy. :) I think it looks great -- I have a soft spot for rainbows, too.

That's so cute, I love the rainbow yarn :) I like endless garter stitch if I need a break or am tired, but generally it's pretty dull - worth it when it comes out like that though!
