Koolhaas is a Kool Haat! and STR spoiler!
I finished my Koolhaas last night. brooklyn tweed's pattern is simply gorgeous - easy to follow and easy to do. Just a little cabling knowledge and good to go. I am going to start another one in red Rowan Cashoft - I think these will go into my holiday gift bag. (wait - it's just been gifted to my little sister - looks great with her long hair, a perfect beanie!) My daughter has even requested a hat - after being my faithful model. I have a Meathead made up for her - but I need to felt a funky little flower. That's another post. Does anyone know if the Meathead pattern has been made available in a book yet? Just wondering.
another kool shot...
I also got my STR Rockin Socks kit this week. The colorway is Lenore - black and magenta - very Halloweenish, very elegant. I didn't like the plastic spiders in there - I just don't like spiders - plastic or otherwise. But the pattern is pretty amazing - it is by Ms. Yarn Harlot herself. Nice and interesting cuff and lace. A keeper.
confession...I ordered a hank of roving this week from zen string - I think I am hooking up with a drop spindle class. Funky Carolina makes me want to spin, spin, spin. Or try, right?
I sent out my Single Sock Liberation Movement pal package today. And I have recast on my Harvest Sock Pal's Jaywalkers again - that would be um, #4. Anyone ever hear that the fourth time's the charm? Yeah, I didn't think so.
