About 6 months ago, I left a comment on Christie's blog. She was planning on knitting an all over cable sweater pattern, the name escapes me at the moment. I told her that I thought she was crazy. All those cables? No way. This was before I tried cables. The whole idea was very intimidating. A short half and year later and I'm crazy about cables. I'm in love with my Twist sweater, and this Rogue hoodie... It's a divine knit, that's all I'm sayin'. I think I've also become a yarn sniffer. Honestly I never understood the appeal of smelling yarn. This Jaeger Shetland Aran has a really pleasing wooly scent though. I've been pausing frequently to bury my nose in the ball and taking a big sniff. Lovely... I also decided to participate in the handwriting meme that's been going around blogville. Write a pangram on a piece of paper, sign your first name, take a photo of it, and load it onto your blog or upload into the flickr pool. Can you believe the atrocious handwriting? Do you pity my students a little? The only thing worse than the handwriting is my drawing skills. Peals of laughter would fill my classroom when I drew out a diagram of how the ancient world saw heaven, earth, and sheol (underworld/hell of the ancient Hebrews).
