Mike had to go back to work for something tonight, so I have an unexpected evening to myself. I'm watching Moonstruck on cable and knitting Terra. And stopping in here to say hello.
Things have been pretty hectic this spring. Without thinking too much about it, I enrolled in three classes. None of these classes alone are too bad, but together I'm a bit overwhelmed. If everything went nice and smooth, it would be no problem, but there are all these little hiccups that threaten my equilibrium. Every assignment finished is a check in the box, though, and I'm slowly getting to the end. There is a light at the end of this tunnel.
There has been knitting. When I was looking for a picture of the Shelter yarn I am using for my current project (Terra shawl, Rav link), I found this picture of new yarn:
But that isn't really knitting. Some more non-knitting. This:
Rav link). I started this the day we got our pack-up at this house, in August. I raced through the body, but it became really clear that I wouldn't have enough yarn for two long sleeves. Since a cap sleeve baby kimono didn't interest me, it sat and sat. Now it's frogged and no longer an unfinished sweater. Now it is back to be potential. Now I can ponder it and figure out what it really wants to be. I'm thinking a little vest type thing, or possibly a striped cardigan. Both for Camden, obviously, since one skein with even the most generous yardage would not make a garment to cover this body. What color would stripe well with that blue-green? Cream? Orange?
But that is still not knitting to show. It seems that most of my knitting progress photos have been taken with my phone and are on my Instagram account.
So how about cute baby pictures instead?
