I’ve got a little bit of everything tonight….
First up…..I’m always looking for new stitch markers. I have a little box next to my knitting chair full of them, and yet I always am searching Etsy for something new. I found these a couple of weeks ago…
These are two from Suann Stitches – really pretty, great for lace and an amazing price. I bought two sets and I’m really happy with them. I also bought other markers a month or so ago, but never took a picture, so I’ll show you those another time (they are very different – I really need to get pictures).
It has been a busy week, but definitely a better knitting week. On the Vine is doing well – fortunately (knittingwise), there hasn’t been heat in my train car so its been so cold – too cold to nap, so I got a couple of repeats done. But I was in the mood for something a little different at night…
Forest Canopy Cowl and my handspun (or Ravelry stash info if you prefer). I know, sort of loud, sort of “what is she thinking”. But the colors are very spring-like, and I love the pattern. And just perfect for relaxing, TV watching, knitting. And it really does look better in person. I think I’ll have this done this weekend, and then I’ll go back to a bigger project. But I really think that 2009 might be the year of small projects – I really am enjoying them – maybe its just how fast they finish – or maybe it that I don’t frog the small ones.
I am really looking forward to tomorrow – its the end of the week, and I’m working from home. I have to go for an ultrasound and to get my blood drawn – no biggie, just a checkup on an issue from last year. And the blood is just standard stuff for a physical. Larry also went for his, and now we are competing on who has better results – I won on blood pressure, but cholesterol is still up in the air…I know this is bad, but I’m hoping mine is better. He goes to the gym every day, and I’m really lazy and never go – so it would be funny if mine was better. And I’d definitely gloat. We are a little competitive sometimes….
I’ll leave you with a picture from last weekend….this is Nala and Maggie. I think they get along, eh?
