KnottyLa’s Design & Dye Along Blog

Okay, I know it sucks, but it’s the closest I could get to the title Joss’ newest amazing offering. It’s only Act I, but it’s definitely the opposite of bad. I even like the bit of belly pudge Nathan Fillion has developed. Makes him seem more…cuddleable. You only have until the 20th to watch Act I, so run along and watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, but make sure you come back, otherwise you’ll be missing out.

You back? Good. Cuz I’ve got something to share with you: Another Eff-Oh and the pattern to go with.

True, I done Effed this Oh a while ago, but I’m only just now getting around to posting about it.

Noodle Cozy - flat

Stats:
Pattern: Noodle Cozy (free pattern by yours truly!)
Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky [104yds/50g] 1 ball Alpine Pearl
Needles: US Size 9 [5.5mm] Addi Turbos
Started: April 1, 2008
Finished: April 5, 2008
Mods/Notes: This hat is just a basic 2 x 2 ribbed simple beanie with symmetric decreases at the crown. And since it only took me 4 days to knit it, it’ll take an average person 1 day. Or if you’re Jen, 1 hour.

I whipped this bad boy up after realizing that my sweet, frail (Ha!) 81-year-old dad had a beautiful hand-made Washburne scarf…

…but nothing to keep his melon from frosting over. With only a few days to make it, I knew simple and chunky was the way to go. And voila!

The yarn is bulky weight without LOOKING like a messy, cheating chunky bulky piece of sh knit. I like that! This is the first time I’ve ever worked with Malabrigo, and I enjoyed it very much. It’s a nice, soft yarn, with good body and lovely colors, so I can appreciate that love, even though I don’t quite share some of you peeps’ complete enthusiasmdevotion…OBSESSION.

The pattern is a free download. You can either Ravel It!, or click the button below to be taken to my free patterns page.

So, the dyeing is done for my initial run, so I’m that much closer to launching Dizzy Blonde Yarns. Still, I have to reskein and photograph the remaining 6 colorways, get my ballbands & invoices/receipts printed, order my shipping supplies, then open my Etsy store. August 8 is looming closer and closer. I sure hope I get it all done in time!

Oooooh!  this just in:  Act II of Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog is now available!  More Jossy goodness!

  1. Get those men off their butts and make them help you! They can print things and order shipping supplies at the very least.
    Cute hat! I think I said that already elsewhere.

  2. One of the pitfalls of feeding 2 blogs. You tend to repeat yourself!

  3. Noodle Cozy!

    I dare not click on Dr Horrible’s Sing Along blog until I’m out of earshot of paying clients.
