Knitting Withdrawal

Ok, I knew I should have written a blog a few days ago. February starts February Album Writing Month where you write 14 songs in 28 days. So that means there is a lot of commenting in forums and no knitting. Sometimes I write a song. I’m kinda social when I do these things. In fact I started up a knitting thread in the forum. All these people knit! Isn’t that awesome?

My goal is to make sure that the forum topic of knitting has the most responses, even though it’s a music website. That’s a pretty silly goal, but then again you know that about me.

Anyway, I finished my second No Face finger puppet. It’s a bit better than the last one, but I still think I need to increase the mask size.

It still looks like the lips are doing duck face. Grrrr….

If you saw my previous No Face, you may have noticed a difference. No Face #1 has the mask knit from the bottom up. I couldn’t get the shape as I wanted. So No Face #2 has the mask knit from one side to the other. It worked a lot better that way!

And because there was a ridge on the Knit side, I used the Purl side for #2.

So even though I haven’t blogged in a while, it’s not because I’m not knitting! Well, I’m not knitting as much as I’d like. Today was the first day I knit in almost TWO DAYS!

TWO DAYS OF NON-KNITTING!

Thank goodness for my daughter’s gymnastics class. I had to take her and then relax in a coffee shop where I ate hipster muffins. At least I had my knitting. I take my knitting utility belt with me everywhere!

And what was I working on? I think I’m up to Totoro #17. Totoro #16 is almost done but the eyes have to be complete. And Here’s a pic of #14 and #15.

As you can see, I’m not doing too well on eyes still. I’m up to how many totoros and my eyes STILL SUCK.

And look at the wonky ear on the Totoro on the left. See how it curves? I like how that looks, but it was a mistake and I don’t know how to recreate it! I tried to make the same mistake on the other ear but it didn’t work. Darn it! I want curvy ears! How did I do that?

Did I mention why I’m doing all these Totoros? There was a method to that pointlessness. I wanted to give them away with my CD. However, I don’t know if I can that done in time because I’m doing FAWM. And I’m judging a music contest with Debs.

And all I want to do is knit.
