confusion between what we have and what we are...

I've been thinking about making this for months (okay, maybe a month or so), ever since I saw this color yellow in the store.  The idea was just too cool not to carry out.

I sketchily (is that a word yet?) followed the pattern for the "Manly Sweater" in Stitch n' Bitch, only applied my own measurements.  The thing is, I used the guesswork method (meaning I looked at how many you're supposed to cast on and pulled some other number out of my ass), plus I only had one skein to work with, so it turned out a little too small all over.  That's 'kay, I'll wear it all the same.



Asante sana.

I really love that! I want to get past the scarf stage of knitting so I can do cool things like this!

lol, I had to come out of lurkdom to tell you how awesome you are.

For a sweater done by ass-mathmatics you did an amazing job!  That is too cute!

Every day may not be a good day to die, but every day is a good day to eat pancakes.

That sweater is SO CUTE!!  Nicely done, especially what with the "pull it out your butt" mathmatics!


if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
