Why oh why did I fall for a show on Tuesday nights? Better yet, why did they decide my once-a-month Tuesday night meeting didn't need to end at 8:30pm? Luckily for them, I am nearly a life member and am not opposed to just wandering out of the meeting early, so I can be home in time to House.

The Knight (my Knitter's Knight, aka: my husband) is not amused; the standing rule for years has been that after said meeting, I pick up Arby's on my way home. Last night, I announced that he'd have to figure out something for dinner, because I wasn't going to miss the first few minutes of House to pick up fast food.

DSCN0621 Here's a shot of the formerly invisible possibly Cuddy bag. It's much bigger than I anticipated, but she'd have room for a small handbag, her workout clothes, shoes and a towel... See my blog for more info on the big project.

Tonight, I plan to finish up a dog sweater (way too small for Wilson's dog), and wind the yarn for the Knight's first pair of knitted socks. If I'm lucky, I'll even get to cast on.

And you??

Here are the pictures of the Mystery Scarf.

Here are the pictures. The KAL is being done through the Shawls and Scarves Etc group on yahoo.

Day 1-Side A

Day 1-Side B

Day 2-Side A

Day 2-Side B-Note the Life Line

The life line is in case the scarf isn't long enough. I haven't decided who I am giving this to so I will keep it in until I decide.

Day 3-Side A

Day 2-Side B-Note the Life Line

I am enjoying this scarf as it really different from the others that I have knitted. I am looking forward to see how this is going to look at the end of this KAL which is finished on October 31.


Good Morning Angels!

What's with all the Charlie's Angels references lately? House, ER, last season of Hell's Kitchen...very strange.

Although it's a lousy picture of my Cameron sweater, I was knitting it in an appropriate place: the hospital. Now if only I could get one of the doctors to hang it around their necks!

On another note, while waiting for House to come on, I caught the tail end of Bones. I've never really watched this show before, but check out the socks on Booth (?).

I thought it was a fab episode!

I started knitting a baby cardigan and working on a mystery shawl, that will be done in time from October 31. i have no idea what this will be. I have done Days 1 & 2 already. I have taken pictures, I just need to upload them to the computer. I love that the team is back and it will be interesting what happens. I dropped my jaw when the black Mormon punched House. I never thouhgt he had it in him. Should be interesting.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Close Your Eyes...

Okay, so that makes this whole blog-reading thing too tricky, but I did indeed finish the mysterious Anne's bag during House this week! If you REALLY care, I already have the post written, and just need for her to receive her package so I can post about the saga. I'll give you a hint - pre-felting, the monster was a whopping 34"x 24". (I don't think Anne pops over here, or I wouldn't even share that much.)

I'm hoping that by next House, I'll be knitting on the Knight's Fred socks, but I have to finish the snuggle (a dog blankie) I just started, make another small one, AND a tiny dog sweater first!

Reactions: I *KNEW* the team was coming back. Cameron and her compassion are fine in the ER, especially with this new, great, evil streak of wagering with House about his current crop of applicants. Foreman has to battle House often; it's a rites of passage gone wrong thing. Foreman is more like House than he cares to admit, and how he handles that reality will be fun to watch. Personally, I think Chase needs to keep an eye on Cameron, because I don't think she's over her attraction to House, and because I love to hear Chase talk.

I'm not crazy about any of the new applicants. Bosley was fun, and I do hope he'll hang around in some capacity. I don't like either of the women; both espouse stereotypes I fought hard to avoid as a female in the fire service. You don't have to be a bitch to get ahead, nor does that kind of demeanor earn respect. And I cannot stand elusive for the sake of mystery, and that's what #13 is doing, as near as I can tell. We're all supposed to be waiting with baited breath for her big secret to come out, but I like me some breath mints, so you'll find no bait here.

More Cuddy and Wilson. This week's show proved that they are probably my two favorite non-House characters. Cuddy flies in the face of convention, but she's strong and reads House well. Wilson is a loyal friend, but not the push-over I once thought. I really missed them, and while I realize it's not even really an hour-long show, watching Cuddy play with Foreman didn't satisfy me. I need to see her cut House off at the knees and receive a cutting retort in return for it to really feel like House, the show!

I'm so glad that the whole team is back... though my hubby was like 'why are they there??? I thought they were all leaving the show...' He's not so sure that it will work to have them all there... I kind of agree... I'm floored that Cameron would be content in the ER... Chase doesn't surprise me, but Foreman as a boss to House?!?! That will be exciting... or did I understand that incorrectly ;-)

Last night was pretty hilarious Wendy.. I totally agree... I absolutely LOVE when House calls the girls #13 and Cut-throat Bitch.. I laugh out loud every time he says cut-throat bitch... it's just hilarious! I really like the team he has... the poor single dad guy puts up with so much crap.. though in my opinion isn't a good replacement for Foreman... I do like him though... I am really sad that they cut Bosley... I'd be happy to see his rival go though... but I do see how they can't really keep Bos either.. of the remaining guys... I like the 'other visible minority' as House would say... better...

My predictions for the final three are #13, (she's very similar to Cameron in her 'mysterious' nature), and the two 'visibly minority' guys... cut-throat is such a suck up that I think House won't want to keep her... and the other non-minority guy is sort of blah.. there's nothing that stands out in my mind.. and then the one who always argues with Bosley.. well, he just bugs me and I think his constant arguing will be a turn off for House...

What do y'all think?

Oh yeah.. this is a knitting blog...

I got a lot of knitting done on my middle guys' halloween 'Bat' hat during last nights episode... :-)

The Crew is Back????

EEEWWWW!!! How excited were you all that the man is back? I squeeled with excitment last night as he walked into Cuddy's office. Honey and I also laughed so much throughout this episode. I don't remember any other episode being so funny! I loved every minute of it!

And to boot, I got a lot done on my felted bag. I'm now ready to work on the handels.
I'm only working on the bag during the show. It's such an easy knit in the round - perfect for paying attention to all the little details in the show. (Loved the part where the old guy said next time he would provide more visuals! I'm very sad that he had to go.)

Outside of watching House, I've finished a pair of socks. You can check in on my blog hopefully later today to get more details if you're truely interested. But here they are:

I May Call This House Day

I started the Pallete Fair Isle Sweater...barely! After doing so many pairs of socks, casting on those 330 stitches (a few times because I'm a dope) took forever! Today I'll start the color so that will have the illusion of going faster.

In the meantime, I'm going on a yarn diet!

Monday, October 15, 2007

Check out my blog

It's been a long day and I've finally finished posting on my own blog... so head on over there an check out what I'm working on currently and how far along I've gotten. I hope the bags and the socks will count. Well, once they're finished that is.

I finished the Calorimetry.

I knit most of it through House and a meeting. My husband and I watch it together, however, I have to watch it on my own as well. So we tape it because hubby's at rehearsal on Tuesdays.

I knit this Noro Kureyon in color 40. I have matching Thrummed mitts to go with this. These are almost done. What is left to do is the thumbs. I though I would finish those during House on Tuesday. I would like to finish them before my knitting group on Thursday. I need to do show and tell..hehe.

So with out further adue here are pictures:

Thuja Sock Progress

I made some progress knitting the Thuja socks on Tuesday night. I'm knitting them using fingering weight yarn for size my brother's 13 wide feet. Its an easy pattern and I hope to be done with them by next week.

I agree with those that don't like Cameron's hair. If she wanted to go blonde, she should have gotten highlights. I think she would look better. I'm liking the new hire process House is making the newbies go through. It's breathing new life into the show. I see House hiring the former vet doctor. Even though she made that horrendous mistake(doctors in hospitals don't give patients their meds...nurses do that), she made the correct diagnosis. I see a love triangle with House, the former vet doctor, and Amber(she's the ruthless newbie).

Invisible Work In Progress

My House KAL item is something I can't "flash." The recipient isn't a member of the KAL, but I can't rule out her potential to wander over here... (Yes Michelle, *YOU* know what it is!) I'd say I'm about a quarter of the way through it. I didn't work a stitch on it last night because I cast on the second sock (for one of the twin applicants, maybe?), only to realize after I'd gotten past the toe that I'd cast on DOUBLE the stitches for the toe. Dang.

As for Dr. House... The less he says, the more likely it is that he did have a religious experience/sighting. That's my opinion, anyway.


I can't believe I surfed my way (beginning on Ravelry) to this blog. I'm excited to be here. I love House, just got the first two seasons on DVD and can't wait to watch them. I didn't see many of them when they were new, because I had classes that night. So, this week I worked on my "Faith jacket" from Sally Melville's color book. It's called that because it's a shape common to liturgical garments. Very appropriate for this episode with House's experiment in religious experience...... Does that put me in a House category this week?
I agree about Cameron's hair color, though her personality does come through as a blonde!

Finished two 'Chase' items

Here are the pumpkin hats I completed for a Baby gift and for my niece :-) Two Chase's down... maybe I need to pick something different for my next House knit... :-)

And just as a comment.. I've tried to figure out how to edit the html to add the pics of a little stethescope.. and I'm having more trouble than I should... I'll keep at it, but can't promise I'll figure it out...

Time for a report

Flash your works in progress or completed objects...

For any object you work on during House... once completed, you'll earn your stethoscope! I'm not picky... you don't have to ONLY knit on your 'House' projects DURING House episodes... otherwise it will take me ALL season to finish something ;-)

I've actually completed two hats.. I just forgot to photograph the first, and gave it to my Niece already... so this second one, which is the same... I'll be sure to photograph it and post!

Can't wait to see what you're up to!

PS... do you think House saw something??

This will be fun!

House addicts in the house! We record each episode on the DVR and wait until my husband, daughter and I can all sit down and watch it together. Don't know why that is, but any other way feels like cheating!
My first thought was to knit the Bad Juju Doll from the Anticraft because I'm sure that each of the staff would like one of these with House's name on it!
Once I saw the list of choices, however, I decided to knit Cameron the Pallete Fair Isle Cardi from KnitPicks.
Now, where did I put that pattern....


Monday, October 8, 2007

Thank you for the invite. I have Seasons 1 and 2 of House on dvd. I really like this show. I think this is going to be a fun knitalong. Right now I'm working on the Thuja socks from knitty. I think that puts me in Wilson's category.


Hi thanks for including me in this. I love House and couldn't wait for it to start up again. I am really upset about the fact of the crew not being there any more.

New Developments

Last night while watching House (and Bones before that) I worked on a shawl from Wrapped in Comfort, which I'm making in Noro Transitions. I'm not sure which House character it goes with--but no doubt one of the 30-odd job applicants would be a fit. I DID finish the socks I was working on during last week's House, but I don't know whether they count as a finished House project since I worked on them at other times as well.

I felt a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of characters on this week's episode, but there are a few I hope will become regulars--particularly the older fellow who audited all those med school classes, but never got a degree. I'm interested to see how things will develop between him and House. (Will House have to be more defertial to an "elder"?)

I vote "no" on Cameron's new haircolor. What is it with all these brunettes who go blonde? To me they always seem warmer and more approachable with their original hair color.

Thank goodness we got a small Cameron and Chase fix. But I'm getting nervous that we really have lost Foreman.

week 2 progress

Maybe we can all edit this post to include a photo of your progress so far and a short comment.

Wendy - Off to a rocky start. had to frog after a few rows cause I forgot that the pattern called for a double strand held together. Plus a very sick Honey who is helping his parents with the building of the house called (silly boy, didn't he realize House was on?). Progress so far: bottom of bag:

What do I get?

For every completed object you knit during the 2007-2008 House season you'll earn:

next to your name...

what do you think???


Ok... episode 2 tonight... everyone ready? Wendy, do you have Tivo or DVR ready? Or is hubby ready to tape for you??

I'm going to update the blog today with a list of the various suggestions for each of our team 'knits'... and will have my icons ready for each of the knit items! :-) Take a look see sometime later this afternoon (my morning is crammed with school volunteering and a hair appointment at long last!)

Tonight I'll be knitting a House scarf most likely.. though a Chase may be in order too, my SIL is coming this weekend and her youngest just had a birthday, and I owe a gift...

Need for Additional Treatment

Folks, Dr. House and his team obviously know how "sick" we are; while suffering through wrestling (hush! we all have our vices, and I knit through his) with the Knitter's Knight, we did learn that on Fridays at - don't quote me - 10pm on USA network, House will be on in syndication!

So, tonight I'll be working on the secret bag and my shrug. Can't wait!

I'm all set for tomorrow night

I'm all ready for House tomorrow night. Today I went out and got the yarns that I need to make the largest size in this:It's really a Christmas gift for someone, but I think it should qualify a a snazzy felted bag to represent Cuddy as well. Can't wait to see what everyone else will be working on... and seeing what happens this week on House!
