{Strike a pose}

Knitters everywhere, rejoice! The Vogue Knitting Fall Fashion Preview has been revealed!

Remember when Def Leppard came out with their permed hair and made the Union Jack the *it* thing to wear across t-shirts and boxers alike? Yeah, I know... the horror! Well, this is so much better! Vogue Knitting's London Calling spread has some awesome knits ...

punks and preps unite!

Also on my "yay!" list... the Home on The Prairie knits. And surprisingly enough to me... socks! Steppin' In Style and Web Exclusive patterns that could make me renounce my pledge to swear them off! (or at least consider doing so!)

Enjoy the latest issue!

{a Sunday quickie}

Get your mind outta the gutter ;) Before I jump into the shower to rinse my dreads of "high lift ash blonde", I just had to share a little knit bit!

I *just* bound off the right mitt of two. This is a test knit for Cosette @ cosymakes, and a project in the works over there. You can see where she also recently posted another test knit, the Belle kiddo's sweater.

Whew that's a big pic LOL

Thanks for reading!
