Long Time No Post

Wow it has been awhile since I posted. We have been having daily network issues at work, having to reboot 4 and 5 times per day. I have not wanted to have anything to do with a computer once I leave work. I have been having physical problems of the female variety all weekend and have gotten absolutely no sleep for three days.

On the brighter side, I have done some knitting. Although I did not transfer the pictures to the computer I have been taking occasional pictures of the projects I am working on. I have started the 8th and final color of the VogueKnitting #28 Lace Wrap. It is a great pattern. I am almost finished knitting the foot of the Austermann Step sock I am working on. This is a ball of yarn I bought from Webs in their discontinued sock yarn sale. The colors are not any I would have normally bought, but it is the faux fair isle patterning that I like.

The yarn for my felted clogs arrived but I was not up to casting them on. I also bought the club pattern, Phoebus Apollo Socks from the Loopy Ewe. Ugh, it's toe up - which y'all know I am not into. So what I did was rewind the yarn into two separate balls and I am going to cast them both on at the same time, so I only have to go through that madness one time. I am using Wollmeise 100% in Campari Orange. I am loving my clapotis, I think I will cast on another one in my other Zauberball, the teal green and black colorway.

I have put my colorwork sweaters (Henry VIII & Glenesk) into hibernation. I am just not into them right now. I have startitis. I want to cast on all of the projects in my project grab bag. I want to knit socks and shawls and some single color sweaters. I had to buy four more Sterlite Storage containers for my yarn collection, which is another reason I want to get some of the larger projects in my queue knit up, some of the single color sweaters in particular.

I need to get this yarn thing under control. I finally FINALLY finally received the priority shipping boxes from the post office Saturday. So at least a little Wollmeise will be going to a good home soon. I have some Socks That Rock I should probably put up for sale or trade too. Some of the sock club colorways are still sitting around in my stash from 2007 because they just were not my cup of tea. I also have some super fine cashmere from the Make One Lace club that needs a new home. I will have to meditate on that.

computer issues are the pits. I've had my own variety here. Hope you feel better.
