I’m almost glad to be back at work! So I went to Ice Castles. Sad to say, it was kinda a bummer. No one really spoke to us for the first 2 hours. We ended up leaving early and going to my mom’s on up the road. Ate dinner with them for my mom’s and grandpa’s birthday. That all came on the end of a very tiring week, so I ended up going to bed at probably 7:30 last night. The first hour and half on the couch and the rest in the bed. I’m feeling emotionally recharged now. And I get most nights this week to catch up on cleaning and straightening.
On a knitting note, the Marsupial Reworked is halfway done. I’m enjoying the speed at which it is going since it is going to be felted. Big needles = speeeeed! (That last word said in a high pitched squirrel kind of voice) Got another scarf done for the craft show and I need to design a sweet looking cable pattern for some of the felted bags I’m going to be doing. Got some nice felting wool last Friday for these bags, very excited about felting!
Otherwise, things are good. I will be going house hunting this Sunday with Austin. I hope to take some pictures. Maybe hold a contest. If you pick the correct house we end up buying, I’ll send you yarn, or something like that. I’m not starting it yet but keeping it in mind. I am hoping by the end of February to have a working shop up for you to buy knit goodies. Please let me know of any interest in that! Thanks!!!
So 3 scarves are finished for the craft show. I wanted 4 done by yesterday but couldn’t squeeze it in. My hands aren’t cramping either so that must mean I didn’t injure myself in the process. I’m supposed to try to get some bags done this week but I also have Ice Castles this Saturday and need to do a couple of little things with my garb. Hopefully I’ll enter in some of my spinning for their novice competition. But otherwise things seem to be progressing. It is unbearably cold here. Any my workplace has consigned all space heaters to the Outer Darkness, so I sit here typing fast to keep my fingers warm, with 2 pairs of socks on, a blanket and fuzzy house shoes. And I am so sleepy, I am about to fall over.
Here’s to a dreary and sleepy Tuesday!
OK, so I am gearing up for the craft show. 1 and 1/2 scarves done. In some ways this is going great, but I’m realizing that I may want to sell a few things extra to help make money for the craft show needs. I can’t decide if this is good or not. In some ways I’m scared if I start selling stuff now, I won’t have enough for the craft show. But I’m also not sure I will always be able to afford to buy stuff, yarn, things for the craft show to get it done. AHHH! So this is my current dilemma, the actual doing is going reasonably well, considering my inability to finish projects.
My Fetching is almost done! And I want to learn the Magic Loop to try and make the second pair for my friend. Any ideas on this?
