Keeping Me in Stitches

Contrary to popular belief...

I have not fallen off the face of the earth. My body has just been begging for more sleep lately, so I've been giving in and not knitting as much, not spinning at all, and sleeping a lot more. But I have finished stuff! (Not the sweater).

Pictures will come later when there's actual light out while I'm awake.

The completed list includes a birthday/Christmas present for a friend, a calorimetry, a pair of Fetching mitts, and a scarf. The last three are all for me and were done out of Malabrigo worsted in Whale's Road.

I've also started ordering yarn again. Still adding to the DiC collection to make Tulip sweaters so I'll have some on hand for all the small people that are turning up around here. I also ordered a bunch of Cascade 220 from The Loopy Ewe. A dark purple heather and charcoal grey heather to make myself a new pair of felted slippers since the one's Mom made for me are on their last legs. Well....more like they're little felted corpses that I keep shoving my feet in and dragging around since I don't have other slippers to wear. Must cast on for these soon since the cold weather is here.

Then I got 6 skeins of the Cascade in Shire, a beautiful green heather, to make a sweater. Not sure which sweater yet, but I've got a couple in mind.

I think the only other thing to report is that I cast on a Lenore sock in STR lightweight Sapphire last night at work. I'm 4 rows from having the top patterning done so should be able to start working my way down the leg tonight. I'll have to see how it goes.

weekend to-do

If I don't put my to-do list somewhere then it won't get done.

-Mow the lawn. Hopefully for the last time this year.
-Finish seaming the Nottingham sweater.
-Finish the other Fetching.
-Grocery shopping.

Guess that's enough to be starting with.

ETA: Saturday 10:47 pm Laundry is started and the vacuuming is done. Going to finish seaming in the first sleeve of Nottingham now.
