i kinda got into this cookie thing. i have her new book. i've knitted a couple of the designs. i knitted an orphan pomatomus a couple years ago ... not to mention all my monkey socks (i've knit that pattern 5 times now!). and my newest is marlene, from Knit1's fall/winter 2008 issue.
i'm enjoying marlene. like pomatomus, she's full of twisted 1x1 ribs. she's very stretchy. and the yarn is great too ... i bought this dream in color smooshy at SAFF in 2007. i had heard about smooshy via blogs and podcasts, but had never seen it in person. when i found it, there were only a few color choices, but this cocoa kiss is lovely. it's mostly gray with kisses of chocolate.
i got so carried away knitting her yesterday that i think i knitted one repeat too many on the foot. i will have to reevaluate tomorrow, in the light of day.
