yeah- no postings are happening because my wifey is in the final push for her second-to-last semester at grad school and always on the computer. it's not for lack of desire or even lack of knitting, just the actual means to blog. and the last time i tried to upload the gorgeous photos of the Imogen kit i got from Knitty Noddy (who are awesome, btw) the computer wouldn't recognize the camera. i love technology! so when i rescue the computer from it's indentured servitude in a couple of weeks i will have some nice long, picturesque posts about what i've been up to.
right now that includes:
*debating the design for the Oregon Red Clover STR
*mulling purchases i don't need to make for sweaters i am enamored with but haven't the time to knit (i'm looking at you Bubble Pullover)
*plugging away on the last 50 odd rows of the MS3. i will probably be the last person in the entire KAL to finish, but i'm loving it and can't wait for it to be done. i am trying to not work on anything else until it's completed so i can finally wear the blasted thing
*swatching for the aforementioned Imogen, which i am so very excited about. yes- swatching is happening because i want it to be just right. and there will be calculating, because i want to cut about 4-5 inches off the back so it hits at my hip, not mid-ass, as it seems to in some cases
*knitting a pair of socks for my dad for xmas. i think i can squeaze a pair for him and a pair for my mom out of the Queen Rock and i know they will both appreciate the color choice.
and i'm sure there's more but that's all i can think of right now.
and now for something completely different: i passed my roller derby assessment a little while ago and got my name and can start bouting. this is big news for me, since i've never been in to sports, teamed or otherwise. i do love it, though. yay!
well have a wonderful day, everyone and i'll be back soon to fill you in on everything happening on the knitfront.
