Pink and Spicy

Oh yeah - extra hot Tabasco Pink and Spicy! Check it out.... two balls of yarn and two sets of needles all going at the same time.... and better yet, not tangled and going like they're supposed to!

This Rogue is FUN! I can hardly keep my hands off it. I'm doing it - and I'm doing it right. I am so spicy I can hardly stand myself. (about now my mom would say "don't break your arm patting yourself on the back").

But, I mean, really. I've started my cables, AND started knitting the kangaroo pocket, and it's all working just like it's supposed to. Blind faith, baby. Just follow the directions - you don't have to understand it. I had a couple panic moments that I had to have Kaity talk me through.... but other than that, if you just keep following the pattern, it all starts to make sense - cables appear, and you actually can see how this pocket is going to actually become a pocket! Fun, I tell ya, fun, fun, fun.

So, check out my cool "Twisty Cables and Shit" - as Heather calls it. (sorry again mom, but I was quoting Heather, who I love and admire, so I had to use the S-word). How cool is that!?

I mean, come one.... it may be a very small start at twisty cables, but they impress me, and, more importantly.... They.Look.Like.The.Picture!!! Come on everybody - happy dance with me!

And as Lolly pointed out, it's Pink, for Project
Spectrum
- so, of course, I had to join! Thanks Lolly!

Check back in Monday, for more exciting cabley action and an update on Count Your Socks!

That is a wonderful color? What fiber is your Rogue being made of?

I'll do a happy dance with ya! That is looking sharp so far!! I don't think I could have 2 sets of needles and 2 balls of yarn going at once though...I'm not that talented yet LOL! And I'm not spicy yet either...lol! Some day I tell myself, some day...

P.S. love the colour too!

Hey Shelley - I saw, Spicy is as Spicy does! I didn't know how spicy I was, either, until I gave it a go! And, if I can be spicy, you can be spicy...

You sound like you are having so much fun. The color is so pretty and so is the twisty little cable.

Awright! You are totally spicy, and boy that is lookin' good! Yay for you, doing the twisty cables and shit. (Sorry to be such a bad influence on your knitting language, hope you didn't get in trouble.)

Doing the happy dance right along with ya!

You are so extra spicy - I definitely think a WIP list on your sidebar is in order. Go for it! You're already on the dark side, might as well enjoy it.

The sweater is so lovely! I dig that yarn--one of my LYS's has it and it's one I want to use: maybe a Rogue is in my (distant) future.

And John Piper is one of my faves...should re-read "Don't Waste Your Life" myself...maybe that would drop-kick me outta my funk. Maybe...worth a try, right?
