Reading Stitches Books, Poetry, Things I Wish I Knew For Sure, and not all that much about Knitting

Skully on My Mind
I will never again try to fit a woman who only wears mens' clothing into a woman's sweater. Skully [Ravelry link], from Debbie Stoller's first Stitch N' Bitch book, has very narrow arms and the sleeves squeeze the upper arms like dark fuzzy sausages. Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky is like a hot bed. It is the stuff that yarn stores are made of. I like it! It is extremely easy to work with, I can see the stitches, and it feels like an old friend. It reminds me of what knitting has always been about for me: cozy comfort.
