Knitting Stalled

Samurai Kabuto front

Originally uploaded by truegod.

(1) The sweater is stuck until my colleague, a knitting guru, is able to look at the bind off for the neck.

(2) Kim’s hat is stalled because I am running out of yarn, despite the fact that the owner of Seaport Yarn felt that one skein would be enough because:

(a) Kim claims her head is 23″ around

(b) Kim wants her hat to fit like a bowl and not like a cond*m. (I don’t want my blog to come up under that word. Not cause I’m a prude, but this is a knitting blog, you know.)

Though I fear the hat will still be snugger than she wishes, it has ended up being quite a big hat, and so the options are (i) a stripe in another color or (ii) me getting another skein of this yarn.

Kim! What kind of hat do you want? Stripe? If you don’t answer soon, I will knit you the hat in the photo instead. It is a samurai hat with a dragon on top.

    ha. this is a family blog! no condoms here!

    i don’t think i know what you mean by “stripe in another color.” where will the stripe be? how wide would it be? i guess i’d prefer it all be the same yarn.

    that samurai hat is … uhh…
