Courtesy of Amy Singer I discovered that somebody finally beat me to writing a knitting comic book. Comic Knits is the super awesome and I will probably subscribe myself. Maybe I'll see these guys at Comic Con this year? I'd be totally down for a Comic Con Knit Off!
Excuse me while I take a closer look at their site.

So much for the Shakespeare Cardigan. I have been swayed away from it by the Dahlia Cardigan, which is a little shocking because it features a lace pattern, which until now I have been unable to do because of child-related distractions. I cast on just the other day and look:
I've already finished chart A and have begun chart B. I'm very very happy with the pattern. It was relatively easy to follow and I only made one mistake, which I hope no one will notice. I'm also enjoying the Cascade 220 sport. Cascade 220 worsted was the first non-Michaels yarn I ever bought and I love the simplicity of it. Just a plied wool yarn available in a million colors. So glad that sport weight is now available. I was hesitant to ever use sport weight because I thought it was too thin and would take a million years to knit, but it's perfect. I'm probably going to knit with me more often. There's always something new to learn with knitting.
At home things we've been in transition. Husband is between jobs, but there are lots of opportunities. Keep your fingers crossed. The boys grow larger and smarter and I become more confident as a mom. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, which will be a welcome change. There hasn't been nearly enough knitting weather. There's only a few weeks left for the posibility of rain so I'm going make a point of enjoying it, with a cup of tea, a seat by the window and maybe the Shakespeare Cardigan. I so want to see that finished. Hopefully I will have enough yarn for it....
How's the knitting weather where you are?
