A new KAL, some knitting stuff and a general lack of interest in halloween.

Why am I blogging at 1:24 on Saturday night of Halloween weekend, you ask? Well, I guess the simple answer is that I didn't want to go into the city with Furry and all the boys. The long answer is that I'm broke, sick, don't feel like getting dressed up, and definitely don't feel like drinking again. So, I'm catching up on my knitting, blogging, etc.

I was so proud - Furry wore the Manly Sweater again today (that's twice this fall so far - do you think he likes it?) This time I was able to snap a pic of him before he got away! Isn't my hubby cute?

Today was a banner day for Phildar Tendances - I started a a new KAL blog for the new brown sweater with crocheted flower. Click on the button if you're interested in joining! It'll be fun to translate with some bloggerbuddies! Here is some yarn porn French style...

I've also gotten up to 95% with Blackberry from Knitty...I used 10 1/2 needles, and knit the entire thing inside out (st st, instead of reverse). So, it's a bit off, and I had to make up some extra inches in the ribbing. I hope I'm done soon. I love the Debbie Bliss cashmerino superchunky, but it PILLS like there's no tomorrow! Rather disappointing, since ths sleeves look a bit ratty, and the damn thing's never even been worn...

Here is the pre-seaming pic...
On that note...enjoy your extra hour of sleep tonight!


  1. Wow, your Blackberry looks great! Can't wait to see it all finished, I love the color. I'll be joining the KAL for sure! I started swatching last night for it, so I'm excited to see how everything goes!

  2. Can't wait to see blackberry, Ive had my eye on that pattern. Finish MNSS already will ya?! :)

  3. He is very cute, and not that i'm gay or anything, but i bet he works out and was on the high school football team... in fact, I bet he used to row for the crew team :)
