Ah, going back to work is such a joy.
Yeah, it was back to the grind yesterday. Fortunately everything seemed under control and there were no emergencies or atrocities while I was out, so I was able to ease myself back into career gal mode. Sorta.
Lucy was in a petulant mood when I got home and indulged in one of her “We are not amused” pastimes — chewing on plastic.
But after some quality time with Mommy, she regained her good humor.
Knitting-wise. What’s next indeed? I don’t plan on starting Ingeborg until early to mid-May, so I’ve got three weeks or so to kill, as it were. I’ve got a number of small projects lined up, so I think I’ll be working on those for a little while.
Like my Ann Norling checkerboard shell.
I’ve got the back completed and a good amount done on the front. So that’ll be done soon.
I’ve started knitting a fun little evening bag — to be felted.
This is knitted with Heilo wool held double, along with one strand of Trendsetter Aura. Cute! The pattern is from Fiber Trends.
And as soon as I buy more yarn, I can get back to my Not-Colinette poncho.
Speaking of the Not-Colinette poncho, I estimate you’ll need about 100 – 120 yards of each of the six yarns. Ballpark figure.
And I have (whispering) some cotton to make some more summer tops. I bought the yarn to make the same tank that Kristine is making, but after seeing all the problems she’s having with the pattern, I’m thinking “screw it” — I’ll use the yarn for something else. Life is too short to mess with ill-written error-ridden patterns, right?
