My Fingers May Be Numb . . .

But I’ve finished my first knitting project.


The only thing I have left to do is weave in the ends.

Also, my laptop is hopefully being repaired tomorrow. [That is an entire blog post in and of itself. Sigh.] So I should be back to writing a fair amount when I get that back. Cross your fingers for me?


I started a new knitting project on Thursday night. Never mind that the scarf I’m working on isn’t done. Seriously, ignore that. That’s for me and I don’t care when it gets done.

I’m making a blanket for a baby I know who is on the way. [This reminds me I need to send a box of goodies off to California for a friend.] There may have been a few curses muttered, mostly because I bought a pound – yes, you read that correctly – of yarn and needed to put it in to two balls because the pattern I’m using calls for holding two strings together. Not as easy or as difficult as one would imagine.

I’m already a quarter of the way through this blanket. That may be in part to me working on it a bunch today. She’s due in July, so I need to get it done. I already have grand designs of making more of these things. Please. Call me crazy, because I’ve decided on the next one, I’m changing yarn a few times.

I think I’ve successfully knocked another thing off of the 101 in 1001 list.

Work in Progress

This is the beginning of the scarf I’m working on. Yes, I know it’s Steelers colors. It’s also Hufflepuff colors, and that it was I had in mind when I starting working on it. But there it is. It’s not very done, and it’s not perfect, but I’m proud of what I’ve done so far.
