Summer: full of fun, knitting, hatching of evil plans, etc...

As you can probably tell from the lack of posting, my summer's been busy. So busy in fact that my blogiversary came and went this month without my noticing. There has been much knitting, and even better, much finishing of projects! But actually photographing said finished knits has been difficult due to the business.

I finished the Leah Tunic from Purl Bee and she had her coming out party at the Bon Jovi concert in Central Park on Saturday. (No cameras were allowed in, so I didn't get a chance to photograph Leah with Jon Bon, alas!). It was a great easy pattern that I made with a fantastic cotton/silk blend yarn. Super pretty, if they had more colors available that are not pastel-y, I'd totally make another but I'm planning on doing the Apres Surf Hoodie using Lyndon Hill in green.

Also the Hexacomb cardigan has been done for ages, also unphotographed. But one thing that has not gone unphotographed is this:

It's some lovely Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn, just acquired at Yarntopia. I had to restrain myself and only bought two colors instead of one of each. Very tempting indeed. I've got some fingerless mitts on tap for this bad boy and some socks for the other. Yum.

And last but certainly not least, you need to run, not walk, to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog . No seriously, go now, I'll wait.

See??? Wasn't that pure (evil) genius? Act I went up yesterday but the overwhelming desire of untold millions to see Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion singing overwhelmed their server and it was down unless, like me, you downloaded it on iTunes (the season pass for all three acts is an evil genius steal at $4). I've been humming these songs all day. Act II goes up Thursday, and the final act (denouement!) goes up on Saturday. The entire thing will only be available online until Sunday so get your fix now! Or wait until it's available on DVD with musical commentary. Huzzah!
