Presh-ious Knitting

A little blog about knitting. Well... mostly whinning about how little time I have for knitting.

Fins to the Left, Fins to the Right...

Oh wow, I've been partying a little too hard. I've been drinking too much beer. I've been singing too many songs. I've been standing in front of too many speakers.

My brain. She is throbbing. So Thursday we were at the nasty gross-o-mundo fair rubbing elbows with the hillbillies of Eastern Iowa screaming our hearts out for Brooks and Dunn. Saturday night we were in Chicago to see Jimmy Buffett (go parrot-heads!). If you ain't never been to a Buffett concert before, let me caution you: do not expect to find anyone dressed as a normal human being. The guys look like girls, the girls look like mermaids, the little kids look like cheeseburgers. Oh, and watch out for sharks. See below:

And then LAST night we were back at the fair for Billy-I'm-Too-Sexy-For-My-Own-Good-Currington and Miranda-my-idol-Lambert. That girl has an awesome voice. Seriously. She's way cool, too, embrassased the crap out of some girl who lifted up her shirt while on her boyfriend's shoulders. Awesome.

The good news is that I've been knitting, too. Well, a little and it's going to have to come out because I don't like it, but I HAVE BEEN KNITTING! I'm trying to decide whether I have enough Rowan Cotton Glace to start this sexy little number:

It's Organzia from Glampyre. That girl's got talent. Mad Talent. Anyway, like I was saying about not being sure if I have enough cotton glace. I have 7 balls with 125 yards ea. The pattern calls for 5 balls of Rowan Cotton 4 ply which has 182 yards ea, but is knit on smaller stitches (yeah I'm gonna be sneaky and just knit a smaller size on the big needles because I'm a big baby English major who hates math). Will there be enough???

Must. Finish. Unpacking. First!
