I've been loving Important Things with Dimitri Martin and this should explain why:


I came across this through Apartment Therapy. I am really sorry not to link to the actual post - if this is your bookshelf, please speak up.

Coffee Tunic by Mira Ranki
Mods: * (lots)
* Yarn weight, pattern said dk but my dk...nothing like
* Needle size #3 for ribbing, #5 for body
C.O 224 and did not increase or decrease throughout body until bust line - incorporated increased stitches into cable pattern under arm. I did not decrease the amount listed up and around arm holes, instead incorporated decrease stitches inside the purl stitches in main rib pattern. Picked up collar stitches (and did not count number of stitches picked up, due to extreme laziness) with #3 needle knit in k1, p1 rib for 1/2" and then increased k f&b in every 5th stitch. Thoughts: LOVE this yarn but after washing it does not hold shape like usual wool. This led to my re-doing the collar multiple times. And when I say multiple, I mean multiple.


The collar on my steel tunic is still kicking my butt so here are some completely unrelated pictures...


Have you ever checked out the world clock?
I'm not sure how I ended up there today but I like to walk home, unplug all my appliances, and crawl into bed with the covers over my head.
On a happier note my steel tunic will hopefully be done this evening. The delay involves my thinking I was smarter than the pattern and reknitting the collar 5 times. Come to find out: I really am not very smart at all.


Good news everyone.....

Can you name the cartoon character who most uses the phrase above?
Completely unrelated to this, I am being drawn to grey of late. This is my steel tunic in progress (the pattern is coffee tunic, [ravelry link] but mine is grey). Doesn't this look like a cloudy winter sky with an eagle? It is actually my kitchen window pane with a fresh coat of ice. Wee bit cold lately.
