Brrrrr. It’s raining out there. And it’s cold. And I have to go outside sometime in the next hour or so to run errands, but I’m trying to postpone it for as long as possible. How are things over where you are? I hope someone out there is sitting on a nice and out of the way beach, in the sun, 80 degree temperatures… of course, if you are, I hope you’re reading this on a smartphone or something, because I’m thinking computers and sand don’t mix. Anyway, if any of you are in a situation anything like I described above, please let me know, it’d be nice to live vicariously through you.
A miracle happened this week. Somehow, with full-time school and two jobs, I’ve managed to get three full days off from all of it. To celebrate, I’m driving back home to visit some friends and my folks. When I come back, I should have a new design for you! The world’s most wonderful hat model (yes, I’m totally sucking up, but Kelle, you’re the best!) is more than willing to get in a photo session this week, so assuming I don’t totally screw up the pictures – again – we’re set! Guess it’s time to create that PDF file…
There’s a sock in progress too. I just need to get my knitting fingers working on that one. And my mother has been pestering me to design a scarf pattern since they’re her new favorite accessory. Busy, busy, busy! Keep checking for updates, they’re definitely coming.
BTW, on a completely different topic. Has anyone seen the Kate Shopping Shawl on ravelry?
This has been on my “must make this” list for months. Yarn was chosen (at least in my head), patterns were looked through, the whole nine yards. Love. It.
They had a rectangular shaped one at TJ Maxx. :)
Soft, cuddly, $24.99.
Yes, it’s around my neck right now.
Yes, I’m a sellout. But all that stockinette (potentially) and lace weight (definitely)… Not to mention it would’ve cost about 3 times more. Can you blame me?
Don’t worry, I’m hanging my head in shame (which in all honesty isn’t that easy with a huge fuzzy scarf wrapped around it).
