Ravelry tells me I started this project in May. It is now March. For those keeping track at home, that’s a total of ten months. Which makes this little pair of shorts the project spanning the longest time period yet. Anyway, they’re done now.

Pattern: Studio Shorts
Yarn: Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton (it’s like kittens, for real)
Needles: US 6/4 mm
Mods: Fewer hip decreases, probably more short rows. I don’t really know at this point.

They’re not really that wrinkly but it’s difficult to take a picture of your own ass/short-wearing section even with a tripod. And it was cold out, hence the tights. I suspect it will warm up soonishly and I’ll get a chance to wear them. They fit really well with the drawstring and they’re super comfortable. Hobby Lobby’s cotton is super soft, much nicer than kitchen cotton.

Now, anyone who’s followed this blog for any length of time will know that I’m a huge nerd. I love the recent Marvel movies (and I’m constantly disappointed I never got into comics as a kid) and I’m completely obsessed with all things Joss Whedon. Naturally, this means I’ll be going to see the Avengers at midnight when it opens. I’m thinking these shorts, green tights, green shirt, maybe some lurid green eyeshadow. Maybe green flip flops. Even though the Hulk is not at the top of my favorite Avengers (I really love Thor and Iron Man), it is the one I can easily dress up as. So that’s happening.

Knowing me, I won’t get around to uploading a WIP post about the socks I’m working on, so know that I’ve started a pair of blotchy vanilla socks in Premier Serenity Sock. I’ll probably be able to get two pairs out of the two balls I have, actually. I also started a sweater in crochet, but I’ve sort of put that aside for the socks, so more on that later.

I recently completed a swap with the theme of all things Chuck Palahniuk–Fight Club, Choke, Invisible Monsters, and the like. I made some awesome things and I recieved some awesome things. Here be the pics:

Things I made:

A kickass notebook which I made from an old notebook. I redid the covers and drew on the bird from the front of Lullaby:

And my favorite thing, these fingerless gloves, so you can wear Tyler’s kiss without the lye. I believe I will be making more for my Etsy shop because they were such a hit. I’ll be sure to post a link here when I list them.

The glove bit of these is crocheted, and the wrist bit is knitted. The lip bit has about half a bottle of fray check on it because of the fabric I used.

I also colored her a card:

She also sent me some really cool things:

This cool shirt, which I will be wearing soonish over long sleeves:

A keychain for my keys:

A notebook to store my favorite Chuck quotes:

It’s basically the best swap ever. I love everything I received. In case you want to check out more crafty Chuck goodness, the Craftster gallery is here.
