WIP Wednesday

I still haven't recovered full knitting mojo, but I have been working on a couple of things. First, I've begun the lovely Hidcote with my Sweet Georgia yarn.

I don't care how hard I try in Photoshop, I just can't seem to really capture the beauty or even approximate the color of this stuff. (My camera always makes everything too blue, so I usually have to color correct.)

Oddly enough, I didn't have to touch the picture of the Snowman Vest.

The first one is there just so you don't think I'm recycling old photos. I want to be done by Christmas, but I don't think it's going to happen, not with the mojo wavering like it is.

Something that has absolutely nothing to do with knitting: For those of you who watch House, I really wish Tritter would get hit by a bus. There I'm done. That's all I'll say.

The shawl and snowman vests are wonderful!
Maybe Tritter will get sick and only House will be able to diagnose him.

The shawl is gorgeous! I have the same problem with purples and reds. Argh.

I can't believe you're knitting two of those vests - they're wonderful. But wow.

Oh I know! I'll be so glad when that story line ends. Yeah house is a jerk, yeah he was wrong, he finally owned up and was going to go to rehab, let's just end it there!

The knitting looks great even if it's low on the mojo.

Knitting looks great! I can't believe you've started Hidcote right after doing the hexangonal shawl from VLT. You are a knitting demon.

I have trouble with blues and purples. For some reason, my camera photographs them better when set on fluorescent light source than incandescent or daylight. I have no idea why.

Tritter has to go. He's just as much a bully as House. I hope it all resolves well. I can't believe we have to wait until January 9th.

The vest is really super cute- you did a great job!

And don't worry about the mojo- like you said to me, it will come back eventually....

Oh, you've got such amazing projects on the go, I absolutely love both of them! The shawl is going to be a real beauty, and I'm really, really stunned by the vests! I can only imagine what a lot of work this is and how much patience they require - awesome!

A second snowman vest! You are ambitious. Your knitting mojo is here to stay I think. And am I the only one that thinks House deserves Tritter? Yes, he's a bully and House's friends have suffered, but a lot of that is House's fault - he forges prescriptions, lies and takes advantage of his "friends". I think he's met his match in Tritter! However, I do feel the story line is getting old - let's get on with something else.

I love the blues in your vest! My knitting mojo is off too, but it will come back. It always does :)

I like the idea that someone posted about Tritter getting sick and then needed House to diagnose him - heh.

Hidcote = lovely. I would like to make it once I find just the right shade of "lavender" (Hidcote lavender is very blue. I still have a couple of stems of it *from* Hidcote gardens pressed in the copy of Alice in Wonderland I bought at Harrod's!). Hmm. I should make one for my mom, too. She (and Dad) loved the gardens as much as I did.

I actually had an evil boss once who had been run over by a bus while on vacation! Just his foot, but we're talking over a year on crutches. After working for him for six months, my co-wage-slave and I both agreed that the bus should have aimed better and hit all of him. Nasty man.

I want Tritter to quit being mean to poor, hapless Dr. Wilson (I have to admit to a very longstanding Robert Sean Leonard crush). I would consider the "vindictive cop" storyline farfetched if not for family experience with my ex-uncle the evil then-state-cop.

Hidcote looks beautiful.

Wow. We should start a mailing list for knitbloggers addicted to House. I love Karen's idea about Tritter getting ill. I think we're all a little sick of this storyline. End it already. Okay.. so maybe I'm one of those that isn't entirely sick of it. I'll just go hide in a corner or something. ;-)
