nonchalant

so we went to the TNNA winter show last weekend.

i love how casually that rolls from the tongue.

just flew down to long beach, hung out with madelinetosh, took a dump at the stall next to beth casey, you know, the usual stuff.

with some delightful food-baby-walking-dead marathons scattered in between

for that completely nonchalant occasion i made two cowls and a scarf, all in company yarns, because i figured it would make me look even more professional than i falsely think i am.

the first one’s a highly classified test knit which i cannot explicate further at this time. it’s a cowl, and it’s green. that’s all.

the next two i cranked out in five days prior to leaving for the show. during those five days i also worked full time as well as moved my ever-increasing earthly belongings to a new apartment, so i suppose it’s safe to say i’m pretty fuckin’ fast. not that i’m one to brag (although i totally am).

pretty things, aren’t they?*

*the question above is not a rhetorical one and only has one correct answer

  1. holy shit. you are faster than fast! that&#39;s unbelievable! but now i want to knit yet another martina behm pattern. so for that, i think you 😉 i might have snagged a skein of wollmeise lace just for the nuvem. haha. <br />also i&#39;m stupid jealous of your trip to tnna. just sayin&#39;. <br />xo

  2. &quot;highly classified test knit&quot;. you do know how to keep idiots entertained, yes? i&#39;m sure i didn&#39;t have anything better to do with my time than anticipate highly classified test knits. where might they be published? i must go through <i>all of the internet</i>.<br /><br />the other two are brilliant as well. love the cowl especially.

  3. Jeebus, that old lady in Scotland has nothing on you! How mang FOs did you knit in how many days??? Shiz… the next time I see you, I totally have to film you knitting. I mean it.<br /><br />But they all look gorgeous! And I like how you made them in company yarn, using the company model, and photographed in company style! 😉 I totally want that Martina Behm shawl, what a gorgeous colour!

    1. felicia already filmed me at the airport but i had to cut it short because i wasn&#39;t feeling my fastest. my humbleness humbles me.<br /><br />the place is perfect, the temperature&#39;s not. wanna make me a pair of thrummed socks or something?

    2. it&#39;s the same heating for all of us. although i really don&#39;t get how it works, because this morning i woke up and my room was warm again, but the kitchen was freezing. it&#39;s always either or.<br /><br />personally i prefer cold over hot, but sheesh. anyway what&#39;s left of winter here will probably be gone before i finish that darn breckon..
