Busy Hands

Make life seem a little more normal.

Projects I’m just finishing up and working on:

Meet Morisot

I’m not sure what I’m doing right. Oh yeah! Staying off the computer and knitting 😉

I finished up my Morisot Sweater this weekend:

Morisot Finished 2

I love it and there are more photos of it here KarinB on my Ravelry profile.

I also managed to block another shawl. I did. I know! My Père Lachaise Shawl, the 2013 Tour de France project designed by my friend Natalie Servant, is finally wearable.

I wouldn’t normally pair a variegated yarn with a lace pattern but there was so much stocking stitch in this design, I thought I’d use up a little bit of stash.

I also made a huge pot of spaghetti sauce and cooked up a ton of gluten-free fettucine to make my lunches for the week, as well as cheese omelettes for my breakfast. That and an evening out with a friend Saturday night to a local pub to see two really talented and entertaining bands made for one very good weekend. This in spite of a cold that kept trying to spoil my fun. Ha! Take THAT (swallows more Advil Cold & Sinus) evil cold germs.

I’ll spare you pictures of the food – that’s what Instagram is for!

Oliver

Tomorrow is the release date for the second clue in the MKAL. Looking forward to this! I completed Clue 1 last Saturday:

My new design is coming along. Working it in Malabrigo “Fino” is definitely a bonus and encouragement to not leave it languish for too long. I should have a photo to share soon.

Sadly, no blocked photos yet. Weddings, house chores, unpacking and organizing are still taking priority (and space!) One huge donation to The Canadian Diabetes Association should help to free up some of that, not to mention my sadly ruffled Fung Shui!

Let The Tour Begin

Ready. I have my pattern on paper and on-line. The design is Natalie’s “The Père Lachaise Shawl”. I’m working the large size in Malabrigo lace, the “Whales Road” colourway.

Here is a link to details about the KAL on her blog and the group discussions are taking place on her Ravelry group.
