My most recent FO
I just completed these mitts on Monday. They're knit with Berocco Ultra Alpaca Fine. They are the warmest thing ever! Not too bad for my first attempt at stranded knitting. I thought I would end up in a tangle of yarn, with a piece full of puckers, but it was surprisingly easy and fun. There are some puckers from floats that are too tight, but some of that is blocking out as I wear them.
I'm a dog walker and dog trainer (now), among other things. I teach a little music part time too. I'm also a knitter, a spinner, and I'm very committed to fitness. I'm married to an amazing man who is supportive of all of my projects, especially my new venture into alpacas. Oh, and I'm also a huge fan of Lost, the tv show on ABC.
Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen the most recent episode of Lost, don't continue reading. This week's theory comes to you courtesy of The Transmission, a Lost Podcast available on iTunes.
Locke was not Locke long before we realized it. As far back as season three. Back when he blew up the submarine, and had those interesting verbal sparring matches with Ben, Locke was really the anti-Jacob.
