Yesterday there were historic and important things going on, but all I could think about was silly TV clips. I couldn’t get them out of my head, so decided to do some youtube clips here today.
This last weekend I finally got around to rewatching The Dave Chapelle Show on DVD. My new favorite thing is his rapper gimmick, the real Black Sheep. I had seen it before and forgot about it.
That clip goes on a little long for my tastes though. And for another too-long clip, Werewolf Bar Mitzvah from 30 Rock. I should have should linked to the clip from the show and not the whole music video. But I couldn’t resist.
30 Rock is so great.
Clearly I spent the entire weekend watching TV on DVD or on my computer. I am totally in love with watching Netflix instantly on my computer. Last night I even dragged my spinning wheel into my room so I could watch a crappy movie on the monitor. Now I can have Mickey Rourke marathons without wasting a Netflix or paying for it.
I have been knitting, but not getting good pictures. I am kind of having bad knitting karma right now. I was working on those knee socks, but after doing about 5 inches of one, have finally faced the fact that it will not fit on my calf. I will have to do a different pattern, but have no idea when.
I finished a cabled vest, which I’ll post soon. I am currently working on the #11 Eyelet Front Vest from Vogue Holiday 2008. I am using Dream in Color Classy. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, but the fabric is a little loose for my tastes. But I bought the yarn specifically for this purpose, so am going forward with worsted on 10 1/2s, 14 st/inch. If I wasn’t worried about running out of yarn I would knit it at a tighter gauge and work a larger size. As it is, I’m even making one much smaller than my measurements so I don’t run out.
I’ve been doing some spinning too. I joined the Black Bunny Fiber Club a few months back. Carol sends each member a different fiber every month but dyes everybody’s according to their personal color tastes. I wasn’t very specific about favorite colors, so I have gotten a nice variety of colors. I just spun up a little under 4 oz. of some green BFL. I still need to spin the other half and ply. It’s been very enjoyable to spin. This is a little pointless to talk about without visuals. Maybe later this week.
Boring post! Pics to come!
