Here I Go Again

When one finishes a project one must immediately start a new one or one will court bad karma. Yes, indeed, there is no doubt about it. I've decided now would be a good time to start Lady Eleanor from 'Scarf Style'. I've been drooling over this pattern for more than a year, but was a bit scared to try it...and I've discovered something. Entrelac is Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! Why did I wait so long? I'm knitting it in Noro Silk Garden color 228A. Hope I can get myself to finish this in time to wear it a bit this year!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving holiday as much as I'm enjoying mine. Since I have the entire week off I've been trying to finish the odd project and get things under control here before the Christmas rush. Yes, I have managed to get my tree put up. I've also finished the 'Maple Syrup Serephina Shawl' I started almost a year ago. The color of the yarn is called 'Maple Syrup' and it's from Knit Picks. It's been washed and is drying now. I'm thinking it will be a gift for my mother this year. I'm also avoiding working on some 'work' related things that I do need to finish by this weekend. I wish I had worked up the gumption to finish them at the beginning of the week so that it wasn't hanging over my head...but there you have it. Anyway, I'm off for more cheesecake!

Where did the time go???

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted, but I guess that's what happens when you finally get a job and have to work full time, lol. I've been extremely busy at work and I have to admit that at times it "sucks the life out of me". I can barely make dinner and do a few loads of laundry before I toddle off to bed. Anyway, I wanted to post about the wonderful swap I received from my pal "Padma Caudwell". As you can see the socks fit! And she sent along some wonderful littles gifts as well...stitch markers, Hogwarts House bookmarks, notebook and pens, and some fantastic pumpkin spice soap! Thank you so much Padma!!!

I have also been sucked into the great "Ravelry" rift and have been spending waaaaay too much time looking through patterns, pictures and the like. What a great place! I've been busy posting projects, yarns, needles and books. I love the organizers and I especially like the idea that I can access my lists from anywhere, not just on my home computer. Maybe, just maybe, I will become organized! (de-Nile is a wonderful place, hehehe).

On the knitting/crocheting front I have started several new projects. I'm working on a hexagon blanket a la' Moonstitches, as well as a giant granny square afghan, and a ripple shawl in royal blue. I will hopefully have something to show here sooner than a month down the road, lol.
