Calloo! Callay! Oh Frabjous Day!

Ever read Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass? Well, the poem Jabberwocky:
'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gymbal in the wabe
All mimsy were the borogoves
And the mome raths outgrabe

Beware the Jabberwock, my son
The teeth that bite, the claws that snatch
Avoid the ??? and shun
The frumious bandersnitch
.....
something about vorple swords

Calloo, callay, oh, frabjous day!

And that's all I remember. Well, anyway, the USB cable today presents to you:






My shipment from Knitpicks back in July. I am making socks (And could use a beta knitter!) out of the Felici, which is second from right in the top row








My unused sock yarn as of August 1, 2007. (Now I have started a sock in the Essential tweed, which is the blue yarn in the photo. The yarn in the upper left is hand dyed with Kool-Aid.










Doilies from Patricia Kristoffersen's Doilies with a Twist:

Left: Rosa in DMC Baroque, Ecru
Center: Doily #6, the same that's on the cover. I don't recall the name...
Right: Irene in Royale crochet cotton, Mint







A not so well lighted picture (plus an error with the flash) of the hand dyed KnitPicks Lace Weight I am using for a slightly modified version of Hazel Carter's Shetland Sampler Stole from A Gathering of Lace. I'd call the color Dusty Rose or Raspberry Sorbet.








Here is the sock in Felici, my own design (that's where I'm looking for a beta knitter!), taken several days ago (This sock is now finished)


And now let's see if Blogger and my exhausted camera batteries will let me upload any more pictures...






Another of my own designs, this the one being made of Essential Tweed












A Locker Hook rug I (was) working on. I think it's lingering in UFO status....












Guess what technique was used for this potholder....









Nalbinding, that's what! (Self designed nalbound potholder, in Mauch Chunky Kiwi w. Lion Brand Landscapes Rose Garden woven through it.)

An assortment of projects: The shawl back when it was in progress, my first sweater, and a bag I am making from the pattern in SnB Crochet (There seemed to be an error in the pattern, also, I ignored the instruction to turn)









A random pair of finished socks (actually, the ones I mention in this post) modeled by one of the few sweaters I like in this fall's VK










Have any of you received your KnitPicks October catalogs yet? I'm curious as to what all colorwork projects they have. I have Sweaters from Camp out from the library, and I've never done Fair Isle knitting before, and it just blows my mind!

Also, I am knitting a Tomten jacket-in acrylic. I may have more to say on this, so stay tuned

-Arachnera

P.S. As I keep hinting, I'm looking for a beta-knitter/proofreader for my pattern... Leave a comment, or email me at arachnera_at_gmail.com if you're interested...

[url=http://nhommuadeal.com/thoi-trang.html]Thoi trang nam[/url] is one of those things where the overall influence it has primarily rests on other considerations. Like so many other things, you have to analyze what you are dealing with and weigh them against each other. Therefore you do have to be careful about what you choose and dismiss. If you want to maximize your ROI, so to speak, then you need to find out what kind of choices you have. What follows next are a few matters about this topic that you will want to know so you can choose the best options.

The relative difficulties of women's and men's fashion

Both men and women can have the pressures of keeping their clothing up-to-date and in season, yet men's style frequently seems a lot simpler. Of course, for both sexes, outfits and fashion options could be quite as elaborate, and there are several'stylish'things that can easily become fashion faux pas - who is able to say they often see people walking around in 70s flames? On the other side, men's style includes a few staple goods that can exist forever - which man is going to look out of position with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Select basic pieces, colours and fabrics and you'll never seem out-of-place.

Why traditional men's fashion is amazing

The classic man's suit has barely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are numerous varieties for various occasions, but they are all popular in their quest for a clever, sharp search for the individual. The great thing about basic fashion for men is that it is simply stylish effortlessly neat. A well-groomed gentleman can typically appear his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and this is a testament to the style of such clothing. A match will be utilized to work in many jobs because of the professional search it affords to the individual, instilling a feeling of respect and confidence. Similarly a match will be utilized to several social situations, like a tuxedo to a black-tie event. This extraordinary versatility that enables matches to be used in almost all events is what gives it its amazing edge and a permanent devote men's fashion.

Modern movements in classic men's fashion

Though common men's styles can never be replaced, it's interesting to observe that shifts in men's fashion trends have brought certain traditional clothes back to fashion. The acceptance of vintage clothing, specifically, has taken back a wide-variety of common types into men's wardrobes, such as that of the dandy guy. 'Dandy'is a term used to refer to men who dress yourself in a classic yet extravagant way, placing importance on appearance and operating in a sophisticated method. This pattern for nearly'over-the-top'traditional fashion for men is evident from events like the'Tweed Run', where men and girls of all ages clothe themselves in obviously Victorian-style attire and take to the roads on vintage bicycles - with most of the men wearing impressive mustaches! This really is just one of many types of evidence showing the resurgence of such designs. Additionally, there are numerous blogs online which focus on gentlemanly type - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as entire web sites such as'The Art of Manliness'dedicated to giving articles on classic men's fashion and grooming.

In conclusion, whilst certain facets of common men's fashion may be brought back as new trends, the fundamental clothes that they are derived from will never slip out of fashion.
