lest you think there’s no knitting…

we twisted girls do actually knit. maybe not as much as we’d like to, maybe we are merely knitting at a level that keeps us sane, but we do knit. case in point: my newfound obsession with monkey socks (thanks a lot, gail!).

these are the latest in my latest craze: cherry tree hill’s supersock, in colorway african greys. we have many colors of cherry tree hill that would make perfectly gorgeous monkeys, and i have plans to cast on a pair in zen string fingering, yarntini fingering (when we get more in), louet gems fingering (which we have ordered, and should have in the next few weeks), ashabee’s fiber oasis, knitted wit, painted skeins, schaefer anne, woolarina, karen’s heavenly creations, maybe even trekking xxl…oh, the possibilities. cookie a is a masteress, folks – downright ingenious.

kilcar-db0.jpgknitting-on-the-road.jpgi am also close to finishing my kilcar coat/sweater from debbie bliss, made out of the donegal tweed chunky, and em has been knitting on her gorgeous cherry-red traveling socks, as well as a project for her pet charity, the fbrn. so we do knit here at twisted. maybe not quite as much as we’d like to, but we knit. and, ’tis the season, eh? the time of year when days get shorter, the air gets brisker, and we all hanker for something soft and hand-knit to wrap around ourselves. for me, this also means that my to-knit list, already an overwhelming and embarrassing thing, gets longer, and longer, and longer. so many projects, never enough time…
