Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

Last you all heard of me, I was rushing out the door for a week off back in KW with family and friends. It was a great week off, and I got lots of knitting done. I was even able to acquire more yarn! (like I needed it)

I started off the weekend by knitting up a quick birthday gift for my friend Alex. It was well-received :) I hope to have a photo soon!

I was bad and barely touched Muir. I could convince myself it was because I didn't want to knit it in front of the receiver, but then I'm just lying and making up excuses. I've really come to the conclusion that I hate this yarn. Not so much the results of it, but physically working with it is just unpleasant when compared to the awesome fibers I could be knitting with otherwise.

Take, for example, the Saigon Scarf. Knit Picks Gloss Lace, Silk and Merino. It's lovely, soft, and moves through the needles alarmingly quickly. *sigh* I am in love with this yarn, and it's all I want to work on right now.

Which might explain why this neckwarmer was so hard to work on. It was a spontaneous gift for a friend I was yarn-shopping with, and though it felt nice and soft in the skein, the 100% nylon got old real quick, and i just wanted it done. At least it was over-with fast, and I know Rin will be happy with it. She's picking out buttons so I can finish it off for her. :)

I'm late, but I was on vacation, so whatever XP

  1. If I could travel back in time, I'd go to the land before time.
  2. Give me love or give me space?
  3. I am listening to myself for once.
  4. Somewhere, someone is thinking of a new reality crap-show.
  5. I'll always be five.
  6. My idea of a good time includes yarn and pie.
  7. And as for the weekend, Friday night I looked forward to flying home for the weekend, Saturday my plans included celebrating a birthday (not mine) and Sunday, I wanted to spend some quality time with family!
