This that and the other

17 November, 2007 at 7:06 pm (caturday, knitting)

(this extra-late Saturday post brought to you by the cold that has completely flattened me. oof.)

There is SO MUCH stuff going on right now, knitting-wise. Some Ravelers are having a mini-meetup on Tuesday, which you’d better believe I’m attending. I’m crazy busy over there with assorted forum and group stuff (who knew I could be so sociable and chatty?), which leaves me much less time to knit than I’d like, especially since I’ve got so many projects going on.

I should be working on the seekrit project o’doom, but I can’t find the motivation. It needs to be done in about six weeks, which should be motivation enough, but… meh. I went to wind up some yarn for it yesterday, which… got tangled on the ballwinder.

(shaky hands = craptastic photos. sorry.)

Excellent. So maybe later tonight or tomorrow I’ll take some scissors to that and see what I can salvage. (you have NO IDEA how much my fingers wanted to type ‘selvedge’ there. heh.)

So instead of taking that to class, I took some yarn that I plan to use for a sweater, and swatched a bit.

I’m probably going to note the gauge that I’m getting and frog; I’m not sure I like the fabric. But the yarn displays texture beautifully, which should help me with my pattern choice. I’ve got a billion sweaters in mind, maybe I’ll sort through my Rav queue tonight and pick some things. You guys will help me decide, right?

And I got a package today with some yarn. Mmmmm yarn. So what do I do but cast on immediately.

What can I say? I’ve discovered that I need more scarves. So I’m hoping that I can get a decent length out of 200yds of this stuff; I guess I’ll find out. (On a side note, the yarn, this stuff, feels just like SWS, but it’s a little thinner and comes in way more awesome colors. Also it’s a wool/acrylic blend so it won’t felt if you breathe on it like SWS will.)

And, hopefully soonish in the mail will be kits for an owl and a squirrel, for my friends who are getting married in December, who are known as… owl and squirrel. 😛 if I find the time the owl will get a little lacy veil and the squirrel will get a teeny bowtie.

As for Kitty, well.


She’s a kitty.

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE that yarn in that entrelac scarf you’re making! Please tell me what yarn that it.. I must have some! I’m knitting this scarf myself in Trendsetter Tonalita which is a wool/acrylic blend too. Very nice!
