If you didn't hear, Chicago had a really crazy storm on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. In addition to about two feet of snow, there was thunder and lightning! After the storm was over, it was fun to watch adorable dogs frolicking in the middle of the street. 


Since I was stranded inside, I was finally able to slog through the last, outstanding Christmas present. Full breakdown on that later. So I finally cast on for my Beatnik

Despite the inane-ness of the twisted rib, I find it refreshing to be knitting something for ME. Yup, it's all about me, and that's why I joined the Selfish Knitalong on Allyson's blog. Let the cabling begin!


  1. I fell asleep super early on Tuesday night and missed out on the thunder snow!

    The Beatnick pattern is adorable! I can't wait to see your finished sweater. I love making things for others, but it is a refreshing change to make something that will not have to be given away.

  2. That is gorgeous! I'm not a knitter, so those instructions look like long math problems for me! Good luck!

  3. That's an awesome awesome awesome pattern, and I know you're going to look so great in it - it's just your style!

  4. Holla! Love it! Can't wait to see all your cables.


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
