Some Inspiration!

Sorry I haven't got any new pictures up, I use my boy's computer to upload my pictures and I haven't been over there much, what with end of semester workload and all....but here's some ideas I've been pondering for projects that may inspire you too!

Isn't this knitted sheep dishcloth cute? I don't think I'll use it for a dishcloth, since I have some concerns about the sanitariness of cotton cloths, (although they must be the most satisfying projects ever!)but imagine a pillow or bag, or even sweater with this little guy on it! I'm not sure about the technique of knitting bobble stitches, but I imagine a crochet popcorn stitch would work just as well.

My old school pal and new roommate Brittany wants me to teach her to crochet because-get this- she wants to crochet herself a full-body catsuit. The mind boggles. I'm pretty sure I actually have a pattern like that in one of my old magazines, too....
She's also crazy about these ferociously ugly knee-length lace-up knitted moccasin things I have a pattern for (which I bought at Goodwill just because I couldn't believe what I was seeing). I foresee that my projects may soon be worthy of Stitchy McYarnpants' museum.


I lopped off my hair last night, and I'll admit it, I was surreptitiously trying to look like Amelie Poulain...at least it wasn't Jennifer Aniston or anything. So now, I look good in hats! Unfairly cute, even, if I do say so myself. So expect a bunch of cotton summer beanies to be surfacing soon!

I'm going to see Salman Rushdie speak tomorrow at the University of Buffalo. (!!!!!)Brittany's sister is a student there and she scored us free tickets! How lucky am I!

If I wouldn't get bored, and wasn't more of a finished product knitter, I'd make tons of the sheep and mix it with stockinette squares, and make a cute little sheep afghan. That square is adorable! I love sheepy goodness.
