My current work in progress:

1. Mighty Mini, designed by Rachel Henry, knit from Socks That Rock Worthy in the "Tanzanite" and "The Green That Sings" colorways on a 3.0 mm needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

The Shining

This hallway reminds me of the long hallways in the movie The Shining, only uglier. Well, apart from the extremely picturesque dumpster parked in the foreground. Ain’t it special?

That is the view standing outside my office suite at work. You can tell we had it professionally decorated, can’t you?

And here’s a still life of my desk early this morning.

By now you have probably figured out that I got nothing today.

Well, not exactly nothing. I did get my new flyer for my Majacraft Gem (to replace the flyer with the delta orifice) the other day and switched them. Of course, with the new “regular” flyer I need an orifice hook, and the two I have do not fit through this flyer’s orifice. L-B pointed out to me that I could use a crochet hook. she is indeed a clever girl.

My spinning on the Gem is getting better, so I’m a happy girl.

I turned the heel of my first Blue Raspberry sock and am delighted with how prettily this yarn is knitting up.

And I am well into the sleeve cap of the first sleeve of the denim sweater.

I’ll finish it tonight and cast on for the second sleeve. I’ve got some secret knitting to do tomorrow night, but I have lots of knitting time planned for this weekend, for I am taking a quick trip out of town and will be on a train Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. This will hopefully make for good progress on the second sleeve. I’m not saying where I’m going, but there will be a good knitting buddy, and there will be yarn shops and there will be kitties!

I’ll not be posting on Sunday, but will be back on Monday.

Happy Birthday, L-B!

Today is another special birthday — the birthday of my friend, Blogless L-B. If you are so inclined, leave her some birthday wishes in my comments!

I know she’s having a good day because her mom is visiting her for a long weekend. Hi, L-B’s Mom! I just want you to know that I, too, am left-handed, and I can knit. I’m just sayin’ . . .

Lucy sez:

  1. Happy Happy Birthday, L-B! Hi, Mom of L-B! =)

    I hope you are having a fantastic weekend, Wendy!

    I’m eating my way through Seattle. Hee! We found a sushi-go-round place and a cupcake place. Mmmm!

  3. I love looking at these slice of life photos, like the office shot. It’s like we’re visiting you for the day. And I’m so glad to see that you’re eating apples. An apple a day… :-)

  5. I was just thinking that I’d like to see you knit — actually watch you knitting something. Then I remembered your kitty cam and thought, “Why not a knitty cam?” Couldn’t the KOARC film from over your shoulder so we could see how you knit and get so much more done that the average knitter (or at least me)? I’d love to see that! Thanks. And Happy B’day, LB.

  13. Happy Birthday L-B! The “other” fastest knitter in the world!

    I think these gov offices are actually experimental stations for the Energy Dept, where they run space-time continuuum projects. You don’t know it, but somewhere in each building is a secret door that opens into the warp that will transport you, and your knitting, to another govt building somewhere else on Earth. And the decor? It’s all done by the design firm of WeFOODS – We Flunked Out Of Design School. That’s why it all looks the same.
