I knit over a mile’s worth of yarn in September, kittens. A. Mile. The last time I did that was not anytime in 2011, but December 2010. It’s been almost 2 years since I was this productive while knitting. I’m really hoping to keep things up at close to this pace for the remainder of the year: it will help me get all of my projects done. It’s much easier to work with wool when it’s chilly outside. We’re still not cold here yet–well, December weather by Texas standards, so fairly wintery for the South already–but it’s been enough that working with my hands is quite desirable. It helps keep my fingers warm and blood circulating to them. Our leaves are starting to turn lovely shades of orange and rust, and it’s been raining most days; is it getting pretty where you are at, kittens? Is autumn finally showing signs of arriving?
Not a Podcast: Episode 4
EDIT: I couldn’t post this yesterday, kittens; it just did not want to upload correctly and play in Flash for some reason. But here is it…a day later.
It’s that time of the week, kittens! I’m going to ramble at you for about 18 minutes and hopefully you’ll enjoy it. 😉 I’ll attempt to catch anything that needs linking to down in the notes here and hit them in the order they were mentioned.
♥ Ghastly Uma – Barring serious illness or plague, this should be done before next week.
Future Cast On Ideas:
♥ Aquaphobia socks in Trick or Treat
♥ Goodale with Bugga! Arge Moth
♥ Jimmy Bean’s Wool from Reno, NV. I was close…right?
♥ Hanging Charging Station. You have to follow a few links and it’s in German, but it looks simple enough to figure out.
♥ Finish quilting this quilt so I can move onto another one.
♥ Lollipop Yarn
♥ Oh, that “other podcast” I mentioned: Snappy Stitches. She’s currently finding a new webhost, so I linked her Ravelry profile instead. Even though I’m giving Podcasting a go myself, I’m actually not a big podcast watcher. Strange, I know. I think there are 3 I regularly watch now? I just can not get into most of the ones I’ve sampled.
♥ And yes, I did manage to fix the color issue while I was editing. Yay!
A minor stash flash–crash, I should say. Oh stashdown yardage in number, how you hurt me!!–and a question of opinion. Do you think these have enough contrast to do another Color Affection? They’re all from the same dyer and the same base. I hadn’t intentionally bought ones that coordinated so nicely together; that was a fluke. Apparently I had autumn on the brain when I ordered them; they’re so seasonally appropriate right now which makes them all the more hard to resist. I think this may be another immediate cast on after I finish Uma. These are from Politically Incorrect Fibers, colorways WTF OMG LOL, Mrs. Robinson, and Bastard.
Where I left it off tonight: starting to look like an actual sweater! Have a lovely weekend, kittens!
It’s that time of the week again, kittens. I was a bit long-winded this week. Enjoy!
Linkies: (Keeping these short because it was so late by the time this was edited and ready to go.)
♥ Starving Children Hats
♥ I ♥ Color
♥ Ghastly Uma
♥ Do not try to record when house is full of people. It doesn’t end well.
♥ And do not have The Mister proof watch an episode where you admit to buying All. The. Yarn. Again, that ending, not so good.
Just being a tease today, kittens. I hope to talk to you about this project soon. ♥
