Hi everyone! It’s been a little longer than I anticipated in recording, but I was under the weather earlier this week – I’m still not at 100%, but I missed you all! We are up to 83 people in the Ravelry group – awesome! We’re getting close to that first milestone… and a drawing for a skein of yarn! This episode’s a short one (for me) this week – recording before I go to work tends to do that to me. I’m sorry if I’m talking too fast…
- Célia by Arianne Caron-Lacoste. Not much progress has been made on this since last week, I’m still not in the round. I just haven’t had any time to knit on it, since I had a finishing project come up from my LYS. I’m hoping to get some work done on it over the next week. It’s definitely not going to be done by the time I get my next shipment from the Magnolia Society Sweater club, but one can hope, right?
- Celestarium by Audry Nicklin. This is part of the January knitalong at my LYS, fibre space. The first 4 sets of charts went quickly, but now it’s going so much slower… I’m using Skein Top Draw Sock (100% BFL) in the Pearl colorway on US4 needles. The cast on was a pain in the butt to do, but once I got it down, all was good. I don’t know how this will drape, but the color of the yarn and beads is PERFECT. Purchased the yarn on Saturday – and totally meets with the 2013 goal of being more purposeful in my yarn purchasing.
Nothing finished this week. *sigh*
I was good. No purchasing of yarn that was just pretty. The pretty yarn that came home with me had a purpose – and is being put to use. 🙂
What’s Making Me Happy
Yeah, you might be able to guess from the episode title. HOCKEY IS BACK!!! I’m not actively boycotting anything, but I’m still rather pissed that we had to through this at all. If I get a chance to go to a game downtown, I won’t say no (unless I’m working or teaching). I can say with certainty that starting January 19, I will be watching my team, wearing one of my jerseys. 🙂
Have a great week, everyone!
