Sorry I've been MIA. It's this whole gestating/graduating thing. It's a real time suck.

But in between the naps and the papers, there has been knitting. A few more baby sweaters. A pair of toe- up socks. And a Cthlulu Balaclava. The Cthuluclava, as it's called.

T is pretty awesome. Not only did she only learn how to knit last year (in our Saturday Beginning Knitting class--I was going to say that this was some shameless self-promotion, but isn't that what a blog is?) and become a regular, not only is she the nicest person in the whole universe, she has the most kick-ass DVD collection, which she shares (see the second compliment) with all the knitters (see the first).

So if you come to Stitch and Bitch and wonder why we're always talking about Buffy and Angel, it's because of T.

As I was watching Buffy, I thought about knitting something to say, "Thanks for being awesome, T!" And knowing that she's a huge sci/fi nerd and HP Lovecraft fan, I knew what I had to knit.

It was a difficult project (lots of little pieces and picking up stitches), but it ended up looking pretty awesome. I told T that I was sorry that I didn't block it.
"That's okay," she said. "Cthlulu is from a dimension that doesn't recognize Euclidean geometry, so it makes sense that he's a bit wonky."
Wow, did I make the right hat for her or what?
