We are expecting a Noreaster here, they have declared a snow emergency in Boston, there are over 300 school cancellations and I brought my snowbrush inside the hospital with me. You know what that means? It is raining!!!! heehee I am sure it will switch over at some point, but hopefully I will get home first.(update...visibility was one car length the whole wat home...)
OK Long awaited for updates..
(camera is at new house-pictures later tonight)
Multidirectional scarf out of Patons SWS, received a long time ago from a wonderful swap partner. I think her of often and check out her blog still. When the yarn was sent to me , I believe 4 skeins, I had just purchased 3 skeins in the exact same colorway...it was strange. I love working with the yarn, it does get hairy though, but the striping and softness is amazing.
Jaywalker socks, no they don't look much longer, but they are actually done, or they would be had I not frogged AGAIN and then pulled a needle completely out...and there is something about the color , when I start knitting it hypnotizes me and I start to drift. I adore the yarn, it is one of my favorite ETSY dyer, Dharmafey of Cosmic Fibers, it frogs and reknits beautifully. I am plugging on as I am trying only carrying two projects at a time and these two are it.
I am trying to remember the swaps I am in currently,
Sock It To Me Twice
and a Valentine Swap on Ravelry.
Not too bad though I find myself straying and looking...heehee
Moved many drawers of yarn to the farmhouse and many tubs yet to be catalogued...I shall be very busy for a long time.
I must pay my deposit for the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling this week, I am not even going to kid myself into thinking I won't be doing much shopping in the Loopy Room. I am in love with Dream in Color in all weights and have started collecting the various weights in Spring Tickle....I want to make my Rogue out of the worsted weight even though I have Wool of the Andes...maybe I need 2 of the Rogues? Hmmmm....that would mean knitting it three times as I have plans to knit one for a friend at some point and I have that yarn already as well.
This is my new tarn from Loopy Ewe...what can you say but gorgeous...
DS2 had a little bit of a tough week last week but is now almost not swollen and is mostly pain free and is liking the results..woohoo. Especially good since he returns to school in another week. He is such a trooper....he has continued to pack and move and encourage me to nap while he takes some of my boxes in his truck. He loves his truck :) DS1 has done major moving of his room with the help of GF and friends. It is so odd to be moving and have the boys basically move themselves. This is our first home due to needing private schools since the age of 3 and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on education without loans, well worth it. DS1 has lived in 5 places and has been too young to really help so that is quite a treat that I can concentrate on the fixing up, let them know a space is done and in come the boxes....of course I still have my things to go.....
I have found a new mania that I must try...thrummed mittens...not yet...maybe over the summer...but try them I must. Those are the coolest things ever.....
