Knitting Content

I've been knitting again! After a few weeks of busy-ness in life/work, I've gotten back in to knitting. Although I'm really excited about knitting the Susie Hoodie (even going to order the yarn this weekend) from this book, I've decided to put some time into some W.I.P.

I am continuing to knit my fish.
Last night I met up with Janna- who is in town, and some of my other knitterly friends which made knitting the 143rd fish quite enjoyable. Today I was able to catch up on some TV shows I DVR'd to knit fish #144-also quite enjoyable. Only 15 1/2 fish left....or something like that. BTW, I was really surprised at this week's Top C h e f elimination. Looking forward to seeing the new Ugly B, Grey's, and of course The Office. I love my DVR.

I've also been adding to my Everlasting Bagstopper. I think the reason I stopped knitting it awhile ago is that for some reason, a few of my left hand fingers go numb knitting this. Not sure if its the yarn (hemp-maybe my fingers are getting stoned or something-HA) or what. I can only handle knitting a round or two before this starts to happen-so progress is slow. The numbness is "project-related" since I can pick up another project and knit just fine right away. I've also knit other projects "in the round" without any numbness.

In the knitting book department, I was surprised I liked this book so much. I actually laughed out loud in several places. I am also excited that this book is coming out. My pre-ordered copy should be here in the next week-yee!

Maybe it's the dye? I'd say try another color of hemp before blaming the hemp completely. Or maybe it's something that brand of hemp is treated with?

I hauled out the piddly 9 fish I knit eons ago and immediately thought of you!
