Yarn Pr0n!

Because what is more distracting from the lack of finished objects than more yarny goodness to make them with?

This was just received yesterday and even better than new yarn? It was free! This is my winning skein from the Undulation KAL a few weeks ago :). It’s also the first Quince & Company that I’ve seen in person and the “Chickadee” is lovely.

Make It Monday

For real this time 🙂

Pleased with both projects, sometimes you just need something fast and finishable (that’s a word). I’m still working on sock two of the pair in Turtlepurl’s lovely “Parliament Hill” and I may have accidentally cast on for the Dahlia Cardi. Oops! 🙂

Undulation Scarf I & II

December already. This was a surprisingly (mercifully) short year. I think I’m officially finished with my gift knitting as of today. Woot!

Undulation Scarf ~ Finished

Trying something different – posting direct from my Flickr.
So here ’tis: Undulation Scarf, finished and not yet blocked.
Holy heck! This was a fast knit! Beginner worthy if you’re adventurous enough to try short rows. I love it!
It’s the perfect capper to a perfect day. I was invited to write for a position at work that I’ve had my eye on and had applied for in early October and last month’s medical tests came back negative.
Colour me very happy!

Fake It Monday

Ha! My wit is not exactly well honed in the waning hours of a lazy Sunday.

No finished projects but much good progress on “Jingle In My Jeans” and the fingerless mitts to match the Lang Mille Colori version of the bias lace scarf.

Startitis did strike. The Cascade 220 that I’d bought to make a crochet scarf, refused to be crocheted. I left it in my WIP basket, in plain view; hoping that it would be more agreeable after a time out but no. Fortunately, my friend Natalie posted about a new KAL that she is running for her pattern “Undulation”. It grabbed my attention and that of the naughty Cascade. Voila! It’s almost off the needles and I have busted a little more stash. I’m not “officially” KAL’ing, just inspired. The yardage in the Cascade is nearly double what the pattern callse for and so, I hope to get both the longest version and the shortest – worked in colourway oposition – out of the skeins I have. Here is the progress photo from earlier Sunday. There is now only the last stripe to work before casting off.

This and a very successful first run at the Christmas shopping on Saturday has made for a wonderful weekend. Hoping everyone’s was equally so. Cheers!
