Note to self: Give this post a proper title

So, I've been knitting...I've been working...thinking...pissing...moaning...

But the knitting, well, the knitting is going just perfectly, actually.

This sock is really coming along nicely. I hope I make a complete pair, because they would be quite handsome.

I wonder what sock I will make next...

Max likes these and so do I. I just need to find the right yarn. I'm thinking of buying some online from this spinner. Her stuff seems really nice and I've heard good things out and about in the blogosphere. Plus, I like the idea of doing my part to support the indie artist/craftsman society which I hope to someday be a part of.

The mistake rib is slowly yet surely growing. I hope to finish it by the end of this week...and then have a proper photoshoot. I think I'm going to try to make my own lightbox, of sorts. Max, the wily Russian might enjoy fiddling around with something like that. But that's neither here nor there.

P.S.--right now I am completely enamored with Habu Textiles. They have kits that are semi-astronomical in price, but...get...this. They have STAINLESS STEEL yarn...that's right. It is mohair, I believe, wrapped around a stainless steel core! That's effin' amazing...you can crumple it all up, if you want, and it will maintain that shape. HOW WICKED AWESOME. I need...NEED...to play with it!!!! The kits I love are, this, this, and this. Keep dreamin' Jess...keep dreamin'.

So would wearing stainless steal clothing make a person more robot like?
