So, in a fit of insanity, I’ve decided to join Cheryl Marie in her knit marathon. Besides deprive myself of sleep, I hope to accomplish several things, in more or less this order:
- Finish all the pieces and seaming for the Moorish Mosaic Afghan
- Finish the Belle Epoque socks
- Finish the Delphine tank
- Watch the first season of Stargate SG-U on Netflix
- Watch the BBC America marathon of Being Human
Of course, these plans didn’t prevent me from swatching for a new project this afternoon. We’ll see how well I resist temptation to cast on something different. We’ll also see if I’m still married by this time tomorrow evening.
Hello, yeah, it’s been a while. Not much, how ’bout you?
*shakes head* Whoa. 70s moment.
It’s Wednesday, still, barely, but there’s still time to join in on the WWIP meme. Sadly, most of the WIPs are the same as the last time I participated in this meme. Sadder still, I’ve added to them. *hangs head in shame*
Let’s get the oldies out of the way first:
The Belle Epoque socks are in exactly the same state as they were last time. Not a single new stitch has been added. Ditto with the Windowpane coat:
And the Delphine tank:
And the baby blanket:
The Sweet Nothing shrug needs blocking:
As does the other baby blanket which I failed to take a picture of before sitting down and writing this entry. In the new stuff, there’s another afghan which has been taking up the majority of my time:
And then there’s this hat I’m designing on the fly because I had only two skeins (about 260 yards) of this fabulous bulky wool and couldn’t find a pattern to suit me:
Loose cables at a large gauge. The hat should take up about 1 skein of the wool. I’ll make a matching cowl with the other skein.
