So the new interweave knits rocks my socks!!
Other knits I adore: The felted floral Capelet, Greek pullover, Vintage inspired jacket, the brioche helmet hat & the canteen bag! WHEW! I've never bought a knitting magazine where I loved so many patterns.
I think my first knit from it will be the fingerless mitts. They would be great for cold weather camping when I want to knit or for all those outdoor shows we will be playing in the dead of winter. Yeah that one is a longer shot & yes I do take knitting when we go back country hiking. I take the knitting & I take fewer clothes to compensate for the weight. After all a couple of days into it everyone smells so bad that clean clothes don't really matter much.
In other news we are only 24 hours away from the new Harry Potter book. Yeah I am that much of a dork that I made t-shirts for us to wear to the release. Here is mine:
Sorry for the dirty mirror. It says "Weasley is our king". I was inspired by a post on craftster. Isaac's shirt is still drying. I used the quote from the marauders map "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good". Also not my original idea (thank you craftster). I will post a pic tomorrow. They turned out really well if I do say so myself.
Also on the agenda today: making a tart. I used this recipe from NPR, yes I said NPR! I heard a story about it a week or so ago & it really stuck with me. So here is my first forte into tartdom.
It was really simple to make & so yummy!! I highly recommend it! There is no better way to eat fruit than with mascarpone cream! It's heavenly!
Also, thanks for the heads up about Interweave's greatness. I can't wait to see some of the projects you make.
and i love the t-shirt! even though i don't get it. I'm actually a harry potter virgin. I have never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Can you believe it?!?!?!?
and oh my gosh, did you see the tiny showcase drawing for this week with the giraffe swing?!?! It is amazing. I missed out on it. Were you lucky enough to snag a copy?
Amy- you will have to wait a little while to see my interweave projects as I am still finishing the skull illusion scarf & accidentally on purpose.
Sandra- I can believe that you haven't read the books or seen the movies. I know a few people who are in your boat.
The shirt is from a part of book 6 where Ron Weasley (one of Harry's friends) helps them win a quidditch match.
Yes, I am a hopeless nerd.
Oh & no I too missed out on the last tiny showcase. It was so cool. I'm glad to see they are getting a big following but apparently I need to be on the computer at 10 pm each tuesday to have a chance at them.
