Crap!!! So I messed up the Spiderweb capelet not 2 hours after I posted the picture (and didn't realize the mistake until it was waaaay too late). Another casualty of my knitting related ADD. I cast on AGAIN (#3!) and decided to switch yarns again to something smoother and faster to knit up, since really I should already be finished with it. I picked a simple Paton's merino olve drab- kind of a cool army/ lace combo. Here is my new dilemma though- I don't know if I'm doing the lace correctly.
Has anyone else made this capelet? Do you actually drop the stitch off the needle, a la Clapotis? This is what I have been doing, but something looks weird- like the loop has no where to go. Do I unravel it to the bottom hem like the Clap or do I just leave it alone? I don't want to knit any more of it until I know for sure what I'm supposed to do. Help!!
I also need to start on the Skullie for Le Fiance. I'm the worst future wife ever- I've been promising him this hat for months and now it's almost cold enough to wear a hat. I need to hurry up!
Last but not least- I need suggestions on where short (5'2") girls can buy some kick ass jeans. They need to be on the less expensive side, around 50 bucks, and come in a nice dark wash. I've been looking around and I can't find anything that looks decent.
I tried on a really weird pair at Target that had bizarre butt pockets. The pockets were so low that they bridged your butt with your upper leg. Not a good look- kind of like they were melting and sliding off...
The ones at Wet Seal (which used to be amazing- all of my old pairs have finally worn out) are now so low waisted that they are seriously obscene. I'm not exactly sure who these were designed for. Probably people who do very little bending. Or sitting. Or moving.
Only a few more days till Halloween! Wheeeee!!!!
