It’s one in the afternoon and I’m finally realizing what a perfect Sunday I’m having. No where to go, and nothing to do. Rain outside my window and comfiness inside. K is in his office, watching football and doing his analysis stuff, while I am puttering. Knit puttering. Is that a thing?
We had a nice brunch and I went through my stash and flipped through some books and magazines. Just generally reminding myself of what I have and what I want to do. Then I pulled out a shawl I knit a while ago and want to send to my aunt. It’s blocking now. Picture does not do it justice. The color is fabulous. I hope she likes it.
Anyway, I am working on some gloves for Kimball, and as usual, knitting over a few times to get the gauge/size right. But it’s Shibui, and I love knitting with it, so that is not a complaint. Since K is off with football, I can catch up on ‘Outlander’ the series on Starz. I read the book a few years ago and had no idea it was a series. What is is on, 12? Something like that? It’s nice to watch while I knit putter.
Next weekend is the knitting retreat. So I need to decide what to take. Chantel visited yesterday in the morning and brought three projects, just in case. So that should tell you how I’m feeling about packing for an entire weekend meant for knitting, right? Clothes, who cares? It’s the wool that matters!
Lately all my knitting has seemed a bit easy. I bit, not boring, but not challenging. I think I need something difficult. The retreat may not be the right time to break out the hard stuff, but I’m thinking about it. Looking for it, really. Something interesting will come up I’m sure.
In Hogwarts on Ravelry news, I’m working on my Hufflepuff scarf. Just need to finish it by the 17th. Shouldn’t be a problem. It has to be 65″ long. I finished my first skein of gold, and it was exactly 32.5″. That amused me since I thought I might be short.
Suggestions anyone, on a hard knit? Don’t say Rock Island, because as we all know from the screaming I did while I knit it, I should not revisit that!
