Well, almost one month into the new job and things are going really well, albeit a little boring at times. But, what can you do? Type in Microsoft Word to post to your blog, says I, so here it is...
Knitting wise, I’m almost ready to start working the heels on the 2AAT socks I’m doing for my husbands birthday. Which is very soon, I may add. Like in 16 days! Eeeks!
And my Le Lapin Noir is almost at the argyle part. Can’t wait…. Only 2 more inches of ribbing to do (I'm on the decreasing portion) and then it should start getting fun… but I guess it was my fault that it’s taking so long… I did decide to work the rib in the round for the Front and the Back all at once…. That’s 160 for the Front and 144 for the Back in k1, p1 ribbing….. egads… that’s a hell of a lot of ribbing! Also, I’m going to do the argyle in heathered gray… it’s a green/gray… very nice… I hope the white doesn’t stand out to much… hmmm, I’ll just have to play it by ear and see how that goes. I'm trying to put the argyle chart into Excel, but it's kind of a weird chart... so I might just improvise it (a bit)
What else am I working on?? Oh yeah, the grapevine… cardigan… yeah, that…
Well, umm… I’ve joined the shoulder seams and it’s now a vest… just waiting for me to finish the sleeve caps and attach them… really, I’ve only got 2-4” on each sleeve to go, so I’m not sure why I don’t just do it already! Then I have to pick up for the neck and I’m finished with a FO to my name instead of something I’ve been working on for a year and a half… OMG, I said it… 1 ½ years!!! Poor grapevine. I’ll finish you, I promise… Just not today (or tomorrow either)
Oh, did I mention that I seriously want to cast on and try 2AAT fingerless gloves… but I’ve only done toe up socks in the 2AAT method, and I can’t figure out how to start the gloves… They’ll be cuff down so I really just have to get off my ass and find a 2AAT cuff down magic loop pattern and follow the instructions changing the st count to match my gloves, right? Yeah, next week.
Can you believe the summer is over? It was never bloody well here, if you ask me.. our weather has been cold and windy and rainy and tornadoes and monsoon raining storms and cold and windy…. And the temperatures are horrid…. And now it’s September and although Autumn doesn’t officially start until the 21st, it seems that we never had a summer.
