I woke up this morning and thought, “I wish it was Friday.” Then I realized it IS my Friday. Yippee!! I have no idea what we have going this weekend. If it doesn’t rain I suppose we could work on the rebar for the next concrete pour…one thing I do know is that I won’t be going out shopping.
1. Birnam Wood – being sick gave me a LOT of time to work on Birnam Wood during the last week. I think I spent the better part of two days working on it. I’m super excited though because I have the two halves of my stole knit to the same place, ready to start Chart C, which means it is approximately half done. I’m getting excited to see how it will look after blocking.
2. Not-So-Secret Christmas Project #1 – tomorrow I’ll have my Mom try these on. My personal feeling is that I like the colors, but that I should rip them back and re-knit with a simple ribbing pattern. The stitch pattern on top of the foot seems uncomfortably inflexible to me.
3. Secret Christmas Project #2 – almost finished. 🙂
In other news, look at this lovely handmade thank you card I received from Kaaren for her socks:
Her socks were knit using Cat Bordhi’s master numbers and the Riverbed sockitecture. It’s nice to see how nicely they fit as that always worries me when I’m knitting for someone else. Thanks Kaaren – it was really fun to get your thank you card in the mail!
(Note: that white spot on top of the sock is one of my kitchen can lights reflecting off the photo.)
