Over the weekend, I had a wonderful knitting marathon… I watched the complete Season One of Carnivale (what a show!) and knit, knit, knit! I needed a good *knit fix* with my new semester of school starting.
When else am I going to have a chance to knit for a whole day?
|I worked on three projects: Kris’s sweater is still coming along. The front is finished, and I cast on for the sleeves. This bored me after awhile, so I moved onto my mohair scarf… the scarf’s new name is Carnivale mohair. I picked up another skein of this at FASC on my last visit, and the lovliness continues. It is wider than a normal scarf, but not quite wide enough for a wrap or stole… I guess I can figure out how to wear it when it is finished. Heather loved this mohair so much that she picked up her own skein when we went out the other day. It is great stuff!|
|The third project that I worked on was quite a surprise… a friend’s birthday was coming up, so we went and bought her a cute margarita set. Long story short: Silly Lolly was trying to carry too much from the car, and dropped the margarita mix set on the ground… liquor everywhere. I felt like a huge dork, and even did a little bit of stomping… but then I regained my composure, and realized that a hand-knit gift would be better than alcohol anyway. So, I had a few hours to whip up the green ribby scarf you see here… (thanks for the modeling job, Kris!) I did it while watching 24 (See Cara’s post about guilty pleasures… we share the same one–Jack Bauer!)|
Thanks to those readers that made me feel better about spending the gift certificate the other day… well, I got another gift certificate from the sweet Kim last week for Kaleidescope Yarns… and I took your advice again, and made another purchase:
Blue Sky Alpaca
Bulky Hand Dyed
from SnB Nation
My first night of classes went very well. This is going to be a very challenging semester in school, but I am going to learn so much. *nerd* For any of you that are interested, I am taking Archives Management and Preservation this semester… I am planning to work on my Librarian blog soon, and I will talk more about these topics in there (as well as any other library/archives/info systems stuff that comes to mind) So stay tuned for that… (if you are so inclined)
Okay… gotta go read… *I’d rather be knitting*
