"Is that a SHRUG?" - not so bad.
"It's really cute - I like the color" - great compliment
"It looks homemade" - AAAAHHH!!!!
I know people at work know I knit, and the whole circular shrug phenomenon (dare I call it a phenomenon?) is hitting NJ hard...BUT one of my coworkers (who's leaving here to go to a competitor next week BTW) told me my circular shrug looks homemade...then she added..."but in a good way". Like that helps.
I must be PMSing, because normally this wouldn't bug me enough to post about it.
I haven't posted in a while, because work has not been fun, but in knitting knews (see, I've been working too much - everything's in outline form):
1. I am putting the finishing ribbing on Blackberry tonight, so there should be pics tomorrow or Thursday.
2. MNSS is still on the slow - the straight stockinette is really boring...
3. Colchique is on hold until the rest of my yarn comes in. I got about 4 inches (10 cm to you French knitters) from the 1 ball I had left of the Goddess. Thank goodness for the Goddess - I was dying to start this, and the gauge matched perfectly! Now...a waiting game...
4. Lastly (for now), this sweater! Who is in on a knitalong? It's another wonderful Phildar pattern. I bought the book (in French), but it's really easy translation! I also got the EXACT yarn, Phildar Quiteude in Kraft 101 on ebay for $19.99! Check out all the auctions that knit-n-tyme has. They sell a lot of yarn that's hard to find in the US on ebay, and the bids start really low.
Is it lunchtime yet?????
