Something old, something new

Since I began this blog, I've actually managed to finish a small project in order to make way for more complicated things. Behold the Parteee scarf, made with $5 worth of novelty yarn from the dollar bins at Target:

It's fuzzy and stretchy and posed on my new-to-me treadmill that will surely be used for running and not just displaying new knits. The scarf is two yarns held together and knit in garter stitch (20 sts cast on size 13 needles) until I ran out of the fur.

Now that I have my fun scarf, I can start on something I've been wanting to do for such a long time with this beautiful, discontinued (nooo!) Plymouth Turino silk:

These beautiful teal balls are well on their way to becoming the gorgeous Boobholder from glampyre.com. Here's a progress shot, on Dan's Go board:

Dan taught me how to play Go yesterday, and although I'm not so hot at it right now, I think it will be more interesting in the long run than the damn XBox. In exchange, I taught him how to cast on and knit (at his behest):

It's full of holes, but his tension is getting more and more even. We're gonna be a knittin' family!
