It’s been busy here in NYC
It’s been busy here in NYC, and with the weather more or less like this for a good few days now, one gets stuff done! Due to some major schedule changes at work last week, (not good for the bank account, but…) I got lots of paperwork done (hooray till the next batch). What I have not made is a firm short list and long list, yet. I keep finding more things I want to make.
I had a play/knit date with Barbara, and we had great fun. I meant to cast on for the Mermaid, with Barbara holding my hand… but did not get to it. Barbara is doing a lot of crochet.
I finished my bubble wrap socks. I made the second sock a bit narrower on top, and it is interesting how 6 stitches can change the color repeats. (or the skeins varied a lot. I love the way they came out, and now I know, Koigu=64 stitches with US1.
In the "how much damage can you do in a rainy weekend" department I excelled!
I joined Sundara’s petal collection (every month for 6 month you get 2 skeins for socks inspired by the flower of the month- right up my ally…)
The Trekking XXL KAL (knit with Trekking on a hike) here are the Trekking troops who will join me... The first one to be knit will be the deep red.
I submitted to Whiplash, the theme was yarn, I chose metalic yarn
And Mary lead me to this:
the yarnographers forum a place for yarn pr0n fans to share their shots of yummy yarns and fabulous fibers.
I found this little handy guide: Knitters', Crocheters', Weavers', & Spinners' Travel Guide 2006 (Paperback)
and this little lady who is knitting herself.
Now quick, back to my knitting!
