Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here or posted, and I've missed a lot. I hope everyone is doing well and in good spirits. That being said, in an earlier blog entry I talked about how I had messed up just as I was finishing a project (a cowl for my boyfriend) and that I started over.
I just loved this pattern....it was so easy, the little girl not smiling is "Lola"
This weekend was the spay and neuter clinic that I always try to volunteer form and for the second time I drug Bob along for at least the first day. It's only fair that way, right? I didn't make him assist with unpacking/set up and the second day and packing up, so I thought I was being nice.
I've been faithfully lurking, but I haven't posted in a long time. So forgive the length of this - it covers several months, and I'll try to be concise.
Last July, our friends in Boulder had their first child - a lovely little girl. I made Jared Flood's Tweed baby blanket for her. It just so happened that I finished the blanket the day she was born.
I just bought some baby alpaca yarn. Mainly because I want to see how it knits up for me. So far I like it. It is definitely a very soft yarn. Making a Celtic Cable Scarf. Expensive though. $17 a for a 126 yard skein.
I like that an astronaut took knitting needles as part of his personal "crew preference". Here's a bit of physics that is a bit different from the physics of yarn. Just a fun thing to think about.
I have a habit of starting new projects when I stll have others on the needles. Then later (just like letting a room get messy and doing a massive cleanup) I feel the need to finish things. The first on the list was the socks I started this spring and sort of forgot about. Since I had yarn leftover from my sweater fiasco, I decided to make the toes from it.
I sometimes will get a gig driving somebodies car from Connecticut to wherever. Sort of a quick side cash pick up. While waiting at the Fort Lauderdale airport for my return flight after one such job ( I had a few hours before my flight) I decided to pull out the Irish Hooded scarf I was working on for my roommate.
