Knitting, and a plea to passers by

... as in, you know, the whole two sticks and a string thing.

No, I have not forgotten how. I've just been busy, and with American Idol going to three nights a week for awhile, it's going to be some time before my output increases.

But in the meantime:
I'm making progress on the Not From Hell Doll Sweater (which goes with the Definitely From Hell Pleated Skirt). It's going to be lovely, if I ever get it done.

A dear friend requested purple socks, so purple it is. This isn't leftover yarn (though it will be when I finish this last foot), but it was in my stash. This is my plain vanilla pattern (60 sts, 15 rows K2P2, 6" to heel, short row heel, 6" to toe, star toe), livened a bit with alternating P and *K 2, YO, K2tog* rnds, every 7th rnd- just enough to add a little texture and interest without making them anything but mindless knitting.

Okay, so I live at the end of a 1/2 mile township road. It's a dead end, and there are no other houses, so I tend to think of it as my driveway. Unfortunately, a percentage of passing motorists think of it as a bathroom.

I swear, someday, I'm going to put up this sign.

Those dang people! I used to live on Lovers Lane... I didn't like the leftovers blowing in my yard the next day, so I starting visiting them with my flashlite. Word spread and the lovebirds started going elsewhere :) You'll have to just step out and give a big ol' "halloo" when they are in midstream....

The sweater is really, really cute. What a lucky doll!
