I wish! No, I am just getting things finished--such as: sample sweater, website, painting new office, UFOs and WIPs, Goodwill, Half-Price Books, and the list goes on...
Secret Garden Cardigan: If I with the body and sleeves done, the colorwork will be my reward. I am leaving the steeks and bands to be finished by someone else.
Tangled: The steeks have had plenty of time to heal and now it is the moment to pick up the stitches and knit the bands.
Kili(aaaahhhh!)manjaro: Just finish already! The knitting was easy, but the decreases over the offset lace pattern caused headaches (so to speak). Very annoying.Future work: rewrite patterns to sell on Ravelry, pick up Eala Bhan and continue knitting, get going on the Master Handknitter Level II, and start my handspun
This week between classes I managed two trips to the MIA to see the Terracotta Warrior exhibit. It was amazing! Sadly, I couldn't take any photos or sketch, but I managed to take notes. On the second visit I purchased the catalogue and it is chock full of information and lovely photos with details! As always, I paid my respects to Hortense and wandered around looking closely at the tapestries and textiles. My goal is to take time to visit at least once a month. It's refreshing to wander around all the wonders of the museum.
After the wild and woolly weekend up in the north country, I am back to working on catching up. I managed a quick and easy project with Malabrigo Rasta and size 35 knitting needles. The herringbone stitch is fun and I love the way the stitch shows off the hand-dyed colors of the yarn.
|One skein of Rasta + BIG needles + fun stitch = neck warmer!|
