Okay, so most of my current knitting is for future publication and can't be shared, but I have two new favorite things in my life, and I'm going to share them. First, Costco. Before Monday, March 16, 2009, I had never been to a Costco... on that date, mom and dad Bergh took me. I was not prepared for the crazy awesome that was Costco.
Now I have 25 pounds of King Arthur Flour (employee owned, that company, why buy flour from anyone else?), 10 pounds of sugar, a 7-pound can of tomatoes (it was $3.49), a pound of cinnamon, 9 pairs of gym socks, and the other goodies pictured above. Thank you Bergh parents for helping feed the Weaver-Bergh family!
When I told my friend Hannah that I had made my first Costco visit, her response was: "Did you know that you can buy coffins at Costco? And that you can buy a PINK one!??" Now I know. Now YOU all know.
Let me not forget New Favorite Thing Number Two. RuPaul's Drag Race. Words fail. Go see it and see if you can guess who my FAVORITE is. Write your guess in my comments, I'll draw a winner from the correct answers, and I'll send you a skein of handspun yarn in a color scheme of your choice, girlfriend. Thanks for this one, Jill, I mean it.
Many people who have made my very first knitty pattern, Neiman, have remarked that the waist shaping takes place too quickly, and my mom agreed and asked to have her Neiman's waist shaping redone. She's my mom, I love her, so I ripped out the bottom 7 inches and reknit it... and the hem facing... you can see the reknit portion because it's kinky from the reused yarn (a good soak will clear that up). Love you, mom, and thanks for helping feed the Weaver-Bergh family!
More yarn for etsy coming soon. In the meantime, MAKE YOUR GUESSES!!! AND MAY THE BEST WOMAN WIN!!!
