Monday, Monday

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,

Mitten 2

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.....

Hi Cheryl! I'm glad to hear you think of me often. I do you as well. I can't wait to see the scarf. I really need to dig out my yarn and make myself a scarf. Hubby hates the only one I currently have. LOL

Hope you don't get too much snow! :D

I thought about going to the Loopy Ewe's Spring fling but decided not to since we are cruising the Mediterranean in April. It would have been FUN to meet you face to face. Maybe another time....

I cringe to think of how much yarn you are going to purchase at the fling...you yarnaholic, you!

Speaking of Manias....
Weren't you in the Mermaid Mania group? Did I miss something?
Did you go off and FINISH while I wasn't watching? or have you let your Mermaid languish on some cold clammy rock somewhere?

Cheryl said...

Yes I am part of the Mermaid Mania but right now with post surgical things and moving and packing and moving and not knowing where she is hiding....I am hoping to pick her up again in February.....
New pics are coming tonight and tomorrow....
