My life feels quite random, now that I don’t have an absolute schedule to go by, which working gives you. So, apparently, I keep forgetting to update this blog on a specific day. . . Which I don’t know if that actually helped with getting people to actually stop by and comment or not. In any event, I will keep posting but who knows when. . .
I am currently working on a “finishing up” stage. And I have a lot of items to finish up, let me tell you! I finished my Truly Tasha Shawl:
I am not entirely sure I will get used to wearing this, I mean I constantly have to hold it on my arms. So, it will be a good thing to throw over my shoulders at a restaurant, or just sitting and knitting, but the shape is awkward to me. How do you get used to this? I mean I’m thinking a shrug, or a sweater would be better for me. . . but what about all that sock yarn I have to knit shawls out of?? OMG.
Let’s move on. . . I also pulled this out, as it is way too pretty not to finish:
I am almost to the under arm shaping. So, it’s onward with this one. . . in the meantime, I am working on plying part of the yarn spun from Peony’s Batts, and just a note here, this house has the most horrible lighting, I had to put the wheel in the front foyer to get a true color shot!:
I think it is coming out really well, but I have to say that I totally goofed up with the choice of bobbins to ply this up on. . . I mean look:
I really should have plied these up on Kirsten’s jumbo bobbin, what was I thinking? Well, obviously, I wasn’t thinking at all! Oh, well, in the end it’s just one more end to weave in, right? Not really a big deal at all.
But what is a big deal is that Chris finished getting the wallpaper border down in our bathroom, and in case you think I am being weird about posting about this, you must see what we’ve been waking up to every morning:
Yeah, and the upstairs bathroom had a Cheetah print. . . that’s gone too!
