What a week, what a week. I have had something going every day and every night. I am wore out - pooped. Thursday and Friday I worked for our attorney friend. Now typically when I work for him I answer the phones, greet clients, make coffee, drink his diet cokes, eat his snacks, update my email, talk on IM and knit, knit, knit. This time the office administrator actually left some filing for me to do AND I had to water the plants. I told the attorney friend we are going to have to renegotiate my pay........if he was willing to pay me $$$ for the original list how much was he willing to pay me for adding the other tasks that are cutting into my knitting time? I don't think he took me serious. :)
So, I got some knitting done. Here is the beginning of some socks I've dubbed - Winterberry Delight. The solid yarn is Panda Silk by Crystal Palace Yarns. It is so yummy, I love the way it feels. The other yarn is a Limited Edition Tofutsie by SWTC in Winterberry. This is a horrible picture in regards to showing correct color. But..........I'm lazy. :)
I've also finished one of the mitts I'm making. I love these little babies. They are so huggy and affectionate and you know how I feel about that. I hate unaffectionate socks and gloves. Now sweaters, eh, they gotta be affectionate in the right places otherwise you can begin to feel controlled or smothered.
And finally, the swatch for Secret of Bad Nauheim KAL came out yesterday. Since I'm behind in all my other KALs what do I do? I cast on and knit the swatch for the new KAL, are you crazy? I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I will probably go down in needle size. The pattern calls for size US 4 for this one I used US 3 but will probably go down to a US size 2, but I may not. I'm also not to sure about the yarn. I love the feel of it but I'm not sure about the colors. But this is what I have in my stash and I really don't want to purchase any more laceweight for now. I might leave it as is or once the shawl is complete I'll overdye, we shall see. This is Knit Picks Shimmer, 70% Baby Alpaca & 30% Silk in Turquoise Splendor.
