1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cheap Sock Yarn on: August 16, 2008 06:57:31 PM
Hey all,

I'm wondering if anybody knows of a good place to find solid-print, fingering-weight yarn for under $5 a skein.

Wow, this took forever!  I got the pattern three and a half months ago, but in the meantime, we moved and worked on adopting my nephew, so things have been pretty insane.

The fabric she's sitting/standing on is going to be a dress tomorrow, but I just worked for twelve hours nonstop to make her, so I think she's good for now.

You can't read the embroidery on the heart very well because it's in metallic thread, but it says "Will" (my nephew's name).  It's going to be his birthday present in a couple of days.

Hm.. no marker.  I guess that means he's got a brother somewhere!

I think it looks great!  I don't do poinsettias either, because they're poisonous for cats. 
I should make some of these to hang over my apartment door - our building is CRAZY for holiday decorating, and I feel like a total jerk for not doing anything.

It looks really awesome.  Do you have a bigger picture?

can I borrow some of that "righteous girl-gang indignation" for tomorrow please?  I could really use it, just for a couple of hours in the morning?

Haha there's enough for everybody, isn't there?  We just need to get better organized.  Like the Boy Scouts or something.

There a knitters' superstition that if you knit for your boyfriend, he'll break up with you.  I don't think it's that cut-and-dried, though.  For instance, I spent months designing and implementing a really complex custom hat for my guy, and he wears it everywhere (he even rolls it up in a ball and cuddles it unconsciously sometimes).  So, I think that knitting for a boyfriend is really more of a litmus test - if it works, and he loves what you made and loves it because you made it, he's a keeper.  If he pulls what this guy pulled on you, then he's a "d-bag" indeed.   

On the bright side, there are good men out there, and as pretty and awesome as you obviously are, you're going to snag the best.  You're just weeding out the lame ones before they waste too much of your time.  Someday, you're going to find the hottest guy of all, and he's going to say, "*gasp* Is that entrelac?!  All my life I've waited for a woman with your formidable skills!"

Okay, so maybe not.  But he'll be good in other ways, and he won't pull dumb teenager crap like breaking up with you on Myspace.  In the meantime, you should feel really good about the fact that you have SEVEN PAGES of righteous girl-gang indignation backing up you up on this, and know that no matter where that scarf goes, you brought some beauty and love into the world that wasn't here before. 

(I think it looks totally rad with your hair, by the way - kind of mermaid-y!)

<---Edit---> : I looked at your Myspace - you're in Denver?  I live in Capitol Hill.  You could join my real-life girl gang!  Mostly, we just plan out the nasty things we'll do in the future, but once we get our act together, we're going to take our revenge on all the bad stupid boys in town.  We'll put you on the list for bar-fight practice if you want =P

No prob.  I'm known for my weird, circular speech patterns and twisted syntax, anyway.  This is the stuff I'm looking for before I actually write down my knitting patterns formally, so thanks!

i love it, but not the mindset one wants to be in at pride while surrounded by nudity!
Oh god, I know.  I felt so bad last year for being in a sweaty t-shirt around a bunch of hot grrls with nothing on top but HRC stickers over their nipples!
As far as boycotting Pride goes, I think I'm with you on that one.  It kinda just feels like a lot of overpriced crap, no parking, and hot pavement. 
Beyond that, I think Denver has more or less gotten to the point where they know that "we're here" and "we're queer", and gotten over it.   I'd rather go to the dyke bar down the street from my house - at least they serve beer.

it looks surprisingly hot when worn with a gas mask!
EVERYTHING looks hot with a gas mask Wink
