Just me! I think it's been a month since I last posted. Time flies. Not much to report. The edging on my Bridgewater is 1/2 done but I had to set it aside while I deal with winter skin ~ rough fingertips and laceweight yarn are not friendly. Snagging every stitch was too much to bear after awhile so I've set it aside til the alligator scales are gone.
I have been knitting, but with nothing to show. All top-secret stuff ~ 2,250 yards of completed projects since mid-January (that's all I'll say!) that are Christmas gifts to be put away so that when the holidays roll around this year, I can knit for me and maybe finish a winter project and still be able to wear it the same year. Ask me how this master plan worked out come December. I'm hoping for a stress-free holiday season for a change!
I am about to cast on a new project (that's it in the photo...look familiar?) ~ I needed something simple to take along with me this weekend when I get to attend the 2012 Kellogg's Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships. I pooled the Christmas money that I was given for yarn this past year.....and spent it on something else (!gasp!). I got an all-sessions 3-day package. So this Friday, Saturday and Sunday if you need to find me, I'll be front row center, watching some world-class gymnasts getting ready for this summer's London Olympics. Just me, myself and I, a lovely in it's simplicity Churchmouse pattern and one of my all-time favorite yarns, Rowan Felted Tweed ~ it's a me weekend! Hope everyone else has as much fun as I know I'm going to have! ~ Melissa
And if anyone is concerned because I spent yarn money on, well, not yarn ~ no need to worry. I'm okay ~ there's still tons of stash to work with and I did get a Weaving Works gift certificate from my parents so it's not like I'm going without ;)
