Compared to last weekend, this weekend was pretty boring. When Noey suggested we go to McDonald's PlayPlace yesterday afternoon, I jumped at the chance. Now 2 years ago, before I started knitting, I would've dreaded it.....too crowded and loud for my taste. But now it's an opportunity to get in some uninterrupted knitting. (if you can stand the stares of the non-knitting public!) It's still crowded and noisy, but I was able to make a lot of progress on some Fingerless Mitts
for moi. I'm using the rest of my Rowan Cork that my first secret pal, Karen
, sent me. I really like the feel of this yarn, too bad it's been discontinued. I would like to make myself a matching scarf if I could find more of this color.
I finished the first one this morning in the church nursery. Joe is here today (which is highly unusual) so he's keeping Noey occupied. They're playing Dolphin and Nemo, while watching some car race, giving me some blogging time, and hopefully more knitting time this afternoon.
I'm into instant gratification lately. I just can't seem to stick with the big projects for long. I still have the Circular Shrug and Sitcom Chic (not to mention Klaralund, Clapotis, several other WIP's) waiting for me. I think I must be a slow knitter. I just can't whip out a sweater as fast as some of you.
I am working on all PINK this month for Project Spectrum. I'm not in the mood for Red, and I don't have much red in my stash anyway.
