O pretty pretty!

I just cast on for a pair of mesh gloves for my mom's birthday. Yes...it is WAY belated considering her birthday and party was this past Saturday. To be fair, I only found Eunny Jang's free pattern from Interweave Knits website 2 days before that and I just can't seem to find time to knit, nothing inspired anyways. I ended up choosing a lavender mercerized cotton yarn over what I originally intended, which was to try out something bamboo/silk. However, I think this will work out very well and my mom will love them.

Since my last dreary post, I have kept my head out of the water by knitting something simple and repetitive with all the left over yarn from bf's Swelling Skull toque & roommate's 1up Mushroom Headband. It's the circular shrug by Julia Allen (pattern here). The choice of colors is not that nice but meh, I need to do something with all that leftover yarn and I need another sweater/vest/anything to keep warm around the office. I don't really care if it's "ugly". The only problem is that I probably have to order more of the yarn to finish it off. So that'll be my second old faithful running project aside from the Never-ending Afghan.

I really find myself becoming a huge fan of Eunny Jang's work. Her other design in this quarter's Interweave Knits is the Katharine Vest. Absolutely beautiful! I love how her designs are classic, fine and modern all at the same time and they always perfectly showcases her design abilities. She is an amazing designer.

I think I have been spammed. Why would a blog about LCD monitors be interested in anything I have to say? Good thing I'm not giving them more ad revenues since nobody else but me reads my blog (and subsequently followed the link).

HAHA! Joke's on you monitor lcd! I am going to leave this, the next time it happens again it is SO getting reported and spamments WILL be deleted.
