I think I’ve hit a knitting slump since finishing Nefertiti. I had plans and deadlines and I finished knitting before those deadlines – you should still be shocked and amazed at this. Then I finished one 1/2 of the front of the Audrey Hepburn cardigan… and now I just don’t feel like knitting.
I’ve been working on Jeanie a few rows at a time. I can only do k1,p1,k1,p1 for so long before I get twitchy. I worked on it during Glee night at Jacie’s. Tuesdays are quickly becoming a highlight of the week. Knitting yarny goodness added in with delicious cooking and Glee. Overall a fabulous way to spend an evening.
I did a little knitting on the doctor’s without borders sock at SnB last week – knitting in the round requires no brain effort at all which makes it the perfect SnB project. We can get a little rowdy and that usually involves me making mistakes. Maybe the knitting juju will come back soon… I am almost to half way on the finishing.
I did find a little spinning mojo last week.
Pretty singles from Spinner’s Hill. I bought 8oz? Could have been 6… not exactly sure, at Rhinebeck 09. It’s a red/orange/yellow transitional. Right now I am spinning 4 singles – thinking I’ll make a chunky 4 ply. If that looks like crap it will go back to being a 2 ply. I’ve spun about 5/6th of the singles… just that little bit left of the 4th section waiting at home. I really need to have more time in the day or less obligations (work, finding a job, etc.). Hopefully it will get done in the next week or so… I doubt this weekend look at the upcoming schedule.
Busy weekend planned for the birthday celebrations:
Friday – Wicked in NYC with that boy person I date.
Saturday am – Playing in NYC with that boy person I date.
Saturday pm – Dinner at Max Burger with the crew for Jacie and Allison’s Birthday Extravaganza. I am hungry already thinking about the deliciousness that will be had…fatty melt or miss daisy and some peanut brittle bacon ice cream… and maybe they will have crème brulee as a special again.
Sunday – possibly playing at the Boston aquarium then dinner with my good friend Amanda from college.
I am already tired thinking about the craziness but at least those are all fun obligations.
Also today is Jacie’s birthday!!!! She is awesome and you should go tell her that.
