Yikes, has it really been five days since I've posted??? I guess things here have been quiet and mellow - which sometimes is not necessarily a bad thing, right?
I did block my Lopi Lace Scarf and have been wearing it every time I go out. I really love it, it's just the perfect length, the pattern is so pretty and feels great after it's Eucalan wash.
Yarn: Cascade 220 colors Celtic Green (9410) and Silver Grey (8401)
Cast on: February 15, 2006
Completed: March 1, 2006
This was a really fun knit, and the only reason it took me two weeks was because it was during the Knitting Olympics. I could only knit it when I was too darn tired to do one more round on the socks.
Speaking of socks, my Thuja socks also got cast aside due to Olympic pressure. Now that I'm free to work on whatever I want, I've been knitting on these again. I turned the heel and am almost through the gusset decreases. I love the Trekking XXL!! The color changes are reminding me of the Caribbean ocean on our cruise, which is always a nice memory to have. The sock looks thin, but it's super stretchy and, as far as I can tell, will fit me fine.
I've also started the Sunrise Circle Jacket and am about half-way up the back. I'll wait until there is more exciting progress before I post a picture of that.
Bored yet? Yeah, this post is even putting me to sleep!!! I guess I'll go put on a load of laundry and start dinner. See, that's what this slow week has been like around here. But I talked to my old boss today - she was all stressed out, no one helps with the work, they still haven't hired my replacement, and nothing there has changed. I'm so glad I got out of there. Give me this slow, quiet life any day!!!!
