Meanwhile, back at the ranch, here’s what I’ve been working on!
I’m still chugging away on Nonpareil. This is the first button band. I’m hopeful I can finish it at Hurricane Knitters tonight.
My Musique socks are also chugging along. They got some good air time at dinner on Saturday night. They may have to take a back seat for a bit. Christmas knitting, dontchaknow.
Of course, there’s nothing better than when “Teh Shiny” meshes perfectly with deadline knitting. While working on a shop sample on Saturday, I was flipping through the new magazines at the store. There were a couple things in KnitSimple’s Holiday 2010 issue that looked promising, then I got to the back of the magazine and found some Susan B. Anderson toy patterns.
Bought the yarn right there, then started knitting owls as soon as I got home. Christmas present for the nephew! Even better? These are FAST!
I got in some fabulous time on the loom last Wednesday. Remember that super-productive day I mentioned? Of course, I haven’t touched it since, but Wednesday is for Weaving. Guess what I’ll be doing as soon as I post this blog entry?
And then? There’s one new thing on the agenda. I’ve had two rounds of interviews in the last two weeks. So I figured I needed to take care of something now, since I may not be able to do it later. Crochet!
It’s the “Meditate” CROCHET afghan pattern from the Berroco Comfort afghans book. Our fabulous crochet teacher at the store works on Tuesdays, so this is what I did yesterday! It’s a foundation chain of 210 and I am totally off to the races on this pattern. I’m gonna be a crochet expert by the time this puppy is done. It’s purple and white, so it’s for the Hubster in Northwestern colors. Go Cats!
So that’s what’s happening around here. Hope you’re just as busy as I am!
