Miss Allaneous

EZ Baby Surprise Jacket for baby Aragon. precious

Third Sipalu Bag. I am extremely happy with how the plastic canvas lining worked out. The double knit strap works well also. I knit it lengthwise because knitting garter stitch across 20 or 30 stitches makes me itch - I dislike turning the work so often.

Duet Deep Blue Sea Socks. Dusted off the old 2x2 rib skills.

The Cruise Planner, very nice goodie bags and yarn. There was great water bottle too but I have taken it to work already. I need to bring it home for our trip.

Rayon Boucle, beautiful nasty yarn

BSJ, Socks and More

I cast on a pair of Duet Socks in the Deep Sea colorway and the yarn is so beautiful. I would love a hat in these colors. I swatched for the Baby Surprise Jacket in Bernat Softee Baby and got gauge, 6 stitches to the inch so I cast that on as well. I am looking forward to all of this straight knitting. I am rotating between the wash cloth, BSJ, socks and Glenesk. I am not going to cast on the 4th Sipalu bag until I get back from vacation.

Auf Wiedersehen

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye. I received my last Wollemeise sock club shipment yesterday. OMG the blue colorway is fabulous. Love it, Love it, Love it. I did not join any swaps, clubs or exchanges this year. I signed up for the Mystic Air KAL, but not to actually knit-along, just to make sure I have all of the Mystic patterns. I have signed up for the Henry VIII KAL which starts in September, so I will have company while knitting that kit.

I have more yarn than I can ever possibly crochet or knit and more patterns printed, saved, disced and queued than I will every possibly get around to. SO I said to myself - enough. Lets start working on some of these kits and things. Of course, obsessing over lace and fair isle knitting has slowed things down a bit. Since both of those methods are extremely time consuming, they make FOs few and far between. I don't even have a pair of socks on the needles. I do have some baby knitting to do, and since those items are small I may cast on a pair of socks also. I have one more Sipalu bag to do, the Warm alternate colorway charts.

My Goodness

There is some crazy going on. If it ain't one thing it's three others. Where to begin? First I was sick and not wanting to do ANYTHING. Then when I was back up and running I had a gazillion things to do. The stupid airline CANCELLED our non-stop flight from Baltimore to SF and did not inform us. I just happened to be online for something else and poppped into reservations and saw the change. IDIOTS!!!!! Spent half the day with horrible on-hold music getting that straightened out. It will now take us 10 hours to get home instead of 5 hrs and 50 minutes. Also, had to call the Hotel in Baltimore to let them know we would be checking in with the vampires instead of like normal human beings because we are getting there 4 hours later than our original flight from SF to Baltimore - suckalicious. Last flight on this airline - I kid you not.

One of my girls messed up big time and now we are going through a bunch of crap at the office. Geez!!! The vanpool went up, my homeowner's insurance went down. The dog has been cuter than ever. I got $10 on a Lottery ticket and the beat goes on.
