I told you there was a boy in the bunch. He just had to do a little growing and molting. Oh, and get his drake feather.
Highlights of the day so far? Duck sex and watching a duck lay an egg. The laying thing was kind of cool. The sex thing is old hat by now.
I’m fixin’ ta do some brush hogging. Riding around on the tractor makes me happy. I pop my ipod in and no one bothers me. Sometimes I throw some knitting in my bag and sit WAY in the back, just listening to the wildlife.
I keep telling Texas that a four wheeler would be good for cruising the property and would soothe me just as much as the tractor.
He says it would need a full roll cage and racing seat belt before he would let me on it.
Another FO. What is going on around here? I mean really!
- Pattern: All from mah head (Ravelry stuff here)
- Yarn: Noro Kuryeon (again from a Nacaknitter ripped project)
- Needles: Denise US 11 and bamboo 10 3/4
- Start: 9/10/12
- Finish: 9/19/12
I just knit a flat bottom, picked up stitches and knit in the round. I think I’ve done enough bags to have this down pat. I made more pronounced corners by dropping a stitch at each one and then picking up two floats at a time. I might add something to the bottom to firm it up a bit. If I get a round tuit, I might even make a lining. Or not.
I tried. I mean really tried to do a mini mochi thing with US1′s. I’m leaving that crap up to the crazy people. (yeah, I’m looking at you Sarah!) Maybe I’ll use bigger yarn and needles and make a not-mini mochi.
Hope y’all have an o-some Thursday!
