Indelible Skin Defacing Funtimes!



I got this a while ago but hadn't posted it yet since I hadn't gotten around to mentioning it to my mother, who for some reason gets awful cranky about these things, despite being a relatively laid back person in every other regard (for which we love her dearly- Hi mom!) But then she saw it anyway so... oh well.

It is a skein. If you are reading this blog, you probably figured that out, but my sister's response is "is that some kind of cinnamon twist?" so I figured I'd be clear about it. I like it very much. It is part homage to pure knitting geekery, part an unbreakable promise to myself not to work in a job where I can't either have a visible tattoo or wear my hair at least partially down (or both). I don't foresee that being much of a problem in Portland anyway, but still... it is a pretty safe bet that I'd be horribly unhappy in such a job, and I'd rather be poor than unhappy.

It also kind of looks like an infinity thingy, but the similarity is purely coincidental. I just didn't want to go to typical ball & needles route (I never use straight needles anyway, and yarn is always prettiest in the hank, says I. Plus, crappy yarns never come in hank form. So there. I am a snob, too damn bad.)

In other news, I just got back from Napa and San Francisco, and I will have lots of lovely things to show you just as soon as I get a moment to breathe. I am kind of sick today so I'm just puttering around trying to get my apartment/computer/life in order again- I find it extremely hard to work when everything is in disarray. Which is bad, since I'm extraordinarily messy. Onwards, to work!!
