With school starting and all I haven't had much time to knit. I did go to my sister's going-away party, which was boring, so I busied myself making a pretty blue cabeled ipod cozy. Those things knit up so fast, I swear I could be rich off of them, if only I knew of somewhere to sell my stuff. There's Cherry Bomb and Dot Fox, but I dunno. I'd only get 60% of the profit. :/ That's kind of not a lot for something as time consuming as knitting. Oh well, I could at least start out there.
Ack. No marvelous pictures of what I'm making. I killed the camera trying to take a picture of the bat that got in our house last night.

Oooh, I have a really good idea for a sweater and some fuzzy yarn. I think it's Lion Brand Homespun, but I can't be sure because my sister took off the label months ago. I hope it works out well without me having to start over eighty times. Normally that happens when I design stuff (which is almost every time I knit). I'm just too magnificent to use a pattern. Haha, no, I just never like the patterns I see enough to follow them directly.
Anyway, I was thinking of a regular sweater... with a twist. Literally, a twist in the front. You know how when you knit on circulars and don't get all the stitches untwisted before joining? I think I'm going to do that on purpose. Now the only trouble will be to make it not look like a shrug. I think I'll have to skip some stitches in the center so it'll twist easily without being bulky, and then make a low neckline so the whole thing doesn't ride up to the top.
Okay, so, I'm going to wing it and basically I have no idea what it will look like, but that's part of the fun, right?! Yesss...
