Ahhh, Wedenesday. Middle of the week. It's like looking down hill at the weekend and knowing it will be an easy decent. I've been busy at work this week, and will continue to be busy for awhile. Hubs and the girls have been really good about helping with dinners, although I can tell they miss me cooking for them while I was home. Oh well, need to pay the bills. The family is coming to visit from Kansas this week, so we will have an equally busy weekend. It will be nice to spend some time with them, as Hubs doesn't get to see his sister often. Unfortunately, I will have to work. No time off for me.....sad face (as my son would say) Son is doing fine in Afghanistan, we were able to Skype with him recently so I feel much better. Now for the good part of the blog.....Here is my knitted Clue #1 of the WestKnits 2011 Mystery KAL. (Squeeee) I'm so excited. I've done some rectangle wraps, but I have not done any shawls. And this is changing colors too! Again, a first attempt on this scale. I have done a hat with a colored stripe, but that's it. So I'm very excited to get to Monday for the next clue. Also, on the needles, the Falling Knot Wrap. This piece is my "At Work" piece and I get an hour a day to knit on it. I'm past the 1/2 way mark in the 6th of 7 repeats. So this is wrapping up. I love this piece, and think I might do an extra repeat or two, as I'm thinking I will gift this to my MIL for Christmas. The Fluke socks are still on the needles without much to report, as is the FLS. Although I did put the FLS on waste yarn this morning and try it on. I think I have another 4 inches to go to reach a length I like. So I think I might try and pick this up in the evenings. I'm thrilled to announce that it fits! Woo Hoo.
ON the Spindle, is Highland Handmades Tigerlily colorway Falkland fiber. It's spinning lovely, but I'm trouble again with my right arm in the shoulder & upper arm area, I may have to get going on my wheel.
And unfortunately, I have nothing new to report on for the Cross Stitch piece. Bummer....I have so much I want to do and no time to do it all! Life can be cruel. So in wrapping up, have a great week. Hugs and Stitches
