Well, how about a little bit of WTF Wednesday?
I've got a little bit of wild and weird and wacko for you today. (Perhaps I should have saved that W.)
We have an entry in the work category: Here's another one of my translation gems, from a lecture on.... well, you'll see:
Should have been "by you folks."
Gave Ally a laugh, anyway. Pay attention to that one, Ally, so you get it RIGHT on the boards. Remember: UFOs examine the placenta! Srsly! Would I lie?
Pardon me, MR. J! What mischief is this?
Poor beheaded lion.
UFO or WECU*? Or Mercury in retrograde?
In knitting news, I feel like I've entered Sleeve Hell.
I've ripped this thing out twice already. I dislike the increases. I can't seem to get them to look half decent, and I'm having flashbacks to the ill-fated Audrey sweater -- the one I divorced years ago because of the same evil ribbed increases. In general, my stitches don't look pretty and even, either. I used a lovely Addi Turbo needle for the body of the sweater, and I'm using bamboo DPNs for the sleeve, because that's all I have in US8 DPNs. The yarn liked the Addis better, and so did I. I've decided to proceed for a while and hope it will all come out in the wash. I hate the uneasy feeling, and I like seams. Seams are all nice and ordered and logical and structured.
I am seriously considering knitting these sleeves "normal," flat, WITH seams, but at the moment, I'm just flowing with it. I'm letting the weirdness wash over me. I am becoming one with the weirdness. I'll let you know how that's working out for me. Soon. Right now it's Weird Wednesday. Embrace the weirdness.
Or perhaps Marta will be a vest after all.
