Just a few random bits so I can distract you while I feverishly finish up my razor cami...
- I am an official participant in Socktoberfest 2006! I love the concept of working on socks while a bunch of other knitters are working on socks, except that there really is no pressure or deadline to worry about. If I have learned one thing about myself through knitting, it is that me no likey deadlines. During this time, I plan on finishing up my Jaywalkers and working on a pair of anklets using two circulars for the first time (instead of
pointy sticks of deathdpns). I have some leftover Knitterly Things Vesper self-striping yarn in Aqua Melon I'd like to use, me thinks.
- I have also joined the Fall Cable KAL. This join was sort of coincidental, as I had already made up my silly little mind that I MUST HAVE a cabled cardi this fall/winter. And I knew it had to be made using yarn from the stash (aka 1200 yards of this) that I bought last year, in a fit of depression about Mr Wonderful's head troubles, with no pattern in mind. When I saw that there would be a KAL for cables, I thought it was perfect timing. And thanks to Carrie, I fell headoverheels in love with this Cabled Yoke Cardi from Karabella Yarns.
I got the pattern for it on Saturday and after reading over it, I am glad I will have a KAL group for a resource, as the pattern is a lot more complicated that I bargained for. And, my little little decorator crab friend is going to make it too. I mean, how could anyone resist this gorgeousness?
- And since I am in the spirit of joining things, I am SERIOUSLY considering joining all those Zimmermaniacs, and working up a baby suprise jacket. I am simply in love with the construction and I think it's about time that my knitting grow a little "depth." But I also don't want/need any more self-imposed stress to work on things, that's still up in the air.
- My work team and I went to Catalina Island for some fun and antics on Friday. We had a blast doing pretty much nothing (except drinking). Antics can be seen here, here, here and here.
Oky doky, that's it for now. Next time, which will definitely be in a couple of days, I will have an FO to show you, so stay tuned. Also, I'd love to know what you've been watching/listening to lately while you knit. I am planning on doing a little "review" of some of the programs/podcasts that I've been listening to and watching and I'd love to know what you all do.
Ciao for now!
