I just stopped by to brush a few cobwebs away. Here’s a quick update:
1. I finished the Knucks, although not in time for Rhinebeck. Which was totally okay because it was way too hot for fingerless gloves at Rhinebeck anyway.
I love this colorway.
2. I know some of you (like me) are into this sort of thing (you perverts!), so here is a picture of the inside:
I seriously considered weaving the ends into the knit side so I could wear them with the purl side out.
3. After I finished the Knucks, I cast on for a pair of Felted Clogs. I’ve finished one clog, but seem to have second slipper syndrome and have been spending a lot of time fantasizing about working on something different.
4. Did I mention I went to Rhinebeck? I didn’t buy much, just this:
and a little bit of spinning fiber. Any wonder I am feeling a little bit of second slipper syndrome?
5. NaNoWriMo is looming (heh heh heh). I have no idea what I’m going to write about. No characters, no plot, no nothing. This should be interesting.
How’ve you been?
Even as the knucks obsession winds down, I feel a new one ramping up. Owls. They’re everywhere, and I can’t stop thinking about knitted owl things. Perhaps an owl java jacket? Or a handful bowlful of these? Or this sweater?
1. I spent Friday night in the ER, thanks to a Starbuck’s barista playing fast and loose with the procedures that keep cow’s milk and soy milk separate. Note to all Starbucks baristas: soy milk and cow’s milk are not interchangeable! And yes, I really can tell the difference.
2. 11 years ago yesterday, my husband and I were married in a small private ceremony at Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada.
Eleven years and I love him more now than I did the day we were married. <3
3. I finished one pair of Knucks and cast on another the very next day:
People, if you haven’t made these yet, don’t let the finishing work put you off! It’s really not that bad. So go. Go now and make some Knucks!
4. Today is 10-10-10. Just sayin’.
5. Last night as I fell asleep, I was trying to come up with an idea for my NaNoWriMo novel this year. I woke up this morning with a great idea involving a bus, temporal displacement, and a sleepy mountain town in Colorado. Now to come up with a large cast of characters.
