Keeping Me in Stitches

...meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Sorry for the long time between posts everyone! I am just getting so bad at blogging. Ooops.

Knitting update:
As everyone has probably already heard on LnV, I had to rip the sleeves of my Nottingham sweater back three times. But all pieces are now completed, washed, and blocked. I had planned on sewing everything together and having a finished sweater this weekend, but due to my lovely voluteering capabilities that didn't happen. More on that later.

I've managed to knit exactly two rounds on my current monkey socks. Kind of sad actually, but I'm starting to get back into them. If I can resist the urge to start another sweater then they might actually get done.

And I've got another scarf on the needles in Malabrigo Whale's Road. Just a simple mindless pattern for when my brain is numb.

Crocheting:
I've done so many bath puffs. Don't know what I'm going to do with them all, but at least I'm blazing through my stash of kitchen cotton.

Spinning:
Nothing. No really. I've got nothing. Since I finished the Vesper Jolly Roger roving, I haven't spun at all. I want to, but can't seem to find the motivation to just sit at the wheel. Plus I've been sucked into Heroes and you kind of need to pay attention to the tv when watching that one.

Other crafty stuff:
I sewed!! That would be why the sweater isn't completed. V's hubby needed a pirate shirt for a local pirate festival he was performing at this weekend. But nothing at the local stores fit him. So I offered to sew a pirate shirt for him. Mind you that I haven't sewn anything in almost two years. I think the last thing I sewed was my Leia costume for Halloween 2 years ago. But I met him at the fabric store Friday at noon, got a pattern and fabric and headed home to strap myself to the machine. Seventeen hours later (including at 3 hour nap) the shirt was done. It fits him and worked for his gig, so that's done.

Around the house: I managed to get the lawn mowed this afternoon, and various loads of laundry done over the weekend. Just need to catch up on the dishes and clean out the fridge and I'll be set. But I've only got one night of work before the weekend, so I may just leave it all until Tuesday. Yeah...that sounds like a plan.

    I hope we'll get to see some pictures of the shirt :)

    While I did hear about you ripping back the Nottingham sleeves, I don't recall hearing WHY. Was it a gauge attack?

    Also, I agree with jadielady, and would also like to see some pictures of everything!
