Still no knitting

Monday, September 17, 2007

I am so sad when I don't get to knit. It's just horrible. Ok I did do a little knitting. I finished the second Monkey sock, and it's getting sent off to Melissa tomorrow along with some other stuff. Hopefully they fit her right.

I started spinning another bobbin, but not much. I pretty much just swivel my chair around and spin for a minute when I get frustrated with school. My wheel is riiiiight behind me. Convenient eh? So it's getting there. I am excited and if I have enough yardage I will be making the lotus blossom shawl with it. We'll see, if there isn't there are plenty of other shawls.

Ummm lets see. I did get halfway caught up with my school stuff, so that's really really good. There's only a week left until I would no longer be able to drop without an F, so catching up means I won't have to drop and I will pass! So that's going well, and I'm relieved big time. A big thanks to Melissa as well, because without the encouragement, I am a big baby lol. I woulda wimped out and just dropped it I think.

She and I are doing a little trade this week. I'm sending her my spindolyn which has been sadly neglected since the wheel came along. And she is sending me some of her pretty hand dyed yarn which she sells in her etsy shop. The one I'm getting is Blueberry Pie and I can't wait!

I also ordered some custom roving from Copperpot. I can't wait to get it.
Here's a link to it, she's selling some of it in her shop. Except mine is merino tencel, and that one is bfl, but the colors are the same. I am hoping that 8 ounces of it will be enough to spin up for my Heere be Dragone shawl that I want to make. I will have to spin carefully. The shawl calls for I think...16 or 1800 yards. Either way I will find something to do with it. :D

The only other knitting I've been doing is today I picked up my sisters legwarmers again since she's been anxious to have them. Truth is it hurts my hands with the yarn and needles I'm using. Ah well, a little at a time.

And last but definitely not least, I am going back to that job tomorrow so they can test my skills. I know illustrator pretty well, but apparently they like freehand, so I downloaded a free trial of it on the internet from, and I'm trying to figure out the little differences. It sucks, but I'm determined. I hope to god they hire me. I need this really bad.

Ok so now I'm gonna go mess with that, and hopefully figure it out before it gets too late.

Good luck with the job!

Thanks for the link. I looked up that silky yarn on I think I like colors 43, 32, and 14. Have you decided to order any yet?

Thanks. I love it too. The color is just perfect. I also have the perfect blue and white striped button down shirt I want to wear it with. It's short sleeved so I really need to get on the ball and finish it!

I like number 48! I think 50 is a nice soft color too! There are just waaaayy too many color options.

Knits & Stitches said...

I know. I REALLY want to wear it!

I found a great new handpainted yarn shop. Their prices are really good, and have gorgeous yarn.

I'm thinking about ordering some lace weight. The roving is goregeous too, but I don't really have any use for it. I like how the yarn is sort of tone on tone.
