I really don’t have anything to show today – I think I’ve reached a total black hole with my knitting. I’m just about on the third skein of yarn for my Ribby Shell so rationally I know I’m making progress. But it just feels like I’ve been knitting forever on it. And when I measure it – I always have 3 more inches to go.
Same thing is happening on the Chevron scarf – I’ve joined in the second set of yarn – and its getting longer. But I feel like I’ll be knitting this for the rest of my life. And as I knit it I really wonder how this is in a “Last Minute Knitted Gifts” book – its only last minute if you anticipate that last minute by ..um..say a year.
So I really don’t want to show you progress shots – because they look pretty much the same as last time. So how about this?
This is a wool/mohair blend I bought at Maryland this year – it is called Starry Night and I can see why! This is for Spun Stitches and I’m very glad that there isn’t a deadline on this KAL. I haven’t spun in a while so I was a little rusty, but once I got back into it, I really enjoyed it.
It was nice to spin outside surrounded by my flower boxes….
I’m so happy that this work week will be broken up by a holiday – and I sort of wish I had thought about it and taken time off. But it should be slow at work, so hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on things. Its been a bit crazy lately – way too busy, way too many problems and way too stressful. I’m looking forward to vacation (two more weeks!).
Have a good week – and wish me luck getting out of the black hole.
