Okay, this one is for the knitters!
I know, I know... I have been absent. Actually I have been sick. Attacked by the Indian version of a flu. Dang- it kicked my butt. I was sick in bed for four days. I cannot even begin to explain how frustrating that is to me. I HATE laying in bed. Drives me nuts. But, I am finally starting to feel better on day 6, just in time for Sock Madness! Yup. In about 24 hours Sock Madness starts and I will be knitting with a frenzied pace. Just incase you have no idea what I am talking about I will give you the quick rundown. Sock Madness is a speed knitting competition in which we are grouped into divisions, we knit a pair of socks and the first ones done move on to the next round. And believe it or not it is more fun than you can possibly imagine. I wrote a little poem about it last year- but you'll just have to re-read it as I don't have time to get too creative right now... :)
to make some....
Can you guess? Yup. Curtains. I particularly wanted to get them finished before those late nights of Sock Madness start up, but it looks like the first round will have to be done without them... sigh.
Well, hopefully I will get the first pair of socks done real quick and then I can get the curtains done... before we go to Goa. Geez.
Okay, one more thing, check out this yellow lace weight yarn I bought down near Commercial street. For comparisons sake, it is laying next to a FULL skein of Socks That Rock. That's a lot of yardage there isn't it. I asked the clerk how many meters/yards there were and he just looked at me and said "no meters, weight." It is acrylic, but doesn't feel too bad for the cost. It was about 80 Rupees.
That's just shy of $2.00 US. I think I can play around with it some...
