A few things I'd like to do this weekend:
1) Start Kittyville hat for my niece. (Already have yarn for it.)
2) Work a bit on my opera length armwarmers/mitts. Already did math (I'm making up pattern myself) and cast on for one.
3) Take pictures of my Manly Husband wearing his Manly Jacket
4) Take kid to see Incredibles (Les Indestructibles
). (Got fingers crossed that the non-dubbed version is still playing. If not, wait for DVD.)
5) Start seaming my Fluffy Jacket, ALREADY.
6) Send about a gazillion packages. (I go so much the people at the post office know me on a first name basis.)
7) Maybe work on the sleeves of my son's Boyish Jacket
[Phildar Pitchoun Hiver 2004]: a project that I started knitting last week, worked on here and there, and before I knew it, had completed the back and both front pieces. Pegase and 4mm needles rock my knitting world. Here's the back of the jacket (click on the image to see an expanded view):
And here is a peek at the completed front pieces (click on the image to see the full view):
This is gonna be one seriously funky jacket. The back is worked in a single variegated color, and the sleeves and front pieces are worked in random blocks of color for a "patchwork" effect. My son is the one who picked out the project, and literally pooh-poohed the rather conservative cabled zip cardigan I had initially wanted to knit. Clearly, the boy has got some snazzy taste.
[FACT: The Boyish Jacket is worked in the same yarn - Pegase - and in the same colors
(albeit in a different striped pattern) as my husband's Manly Jacket. My son picked out this jacket BEFORE my husband had picked out the Manly Jacket, and neither of them knew of the other's choice until I came home with the enormous mountain of Pegase yarn
afterwards. It was then that my husband said, "But...we're almost gonna have the same jackets." Haha! That's right. It's gonna be a cutesy pair of matching father/son jackets, skippy. Can you stand it???]
