I have a to-do list that’s a mile long now that I’m out of school, I just can’t seem to get started on anything. I need to write up a resume, clean my room, clean out my closet, take my dog to the groomers, get my hair cut. I know there’s more but I just don’t even want to think about it. Ugh, I haven’t been sleeping good at night so I’m drained all day and all I want to do is sit around and watch movies and knit. Unfortunately I’m down to scraps when it comes to yarn, so I’m stuck on little projects for now.
This is the only yarn I have in a garment-sized amount. This is some Peace Fleece Worsted that’s been sitting around for years. I only have 800yds so it’s not enough for a sweater and barely enough for any vest patterns. But, while I was digging around on Ravelry one night, I found the Boogie Vest from an old Knitty and it seems to be working perfect. I’ve knit the back and almost half of the front. This is a quick, easy knit and I’ll think it will be great this fall.
I also finished something and blocked it, though I haven’t woven in the ends. This is a Pagona, the pattern is by Stephen West, the yarn is my handspun. I didn’t have much of this yarn, so the shawl is small, about 12” down the edge instead of the 15” that the pattern says. It will be a good size for a little scarf, though. Not much to say about this. My yarn looks good.
I’ve been doing a little spinning, still on that same Shetland that I’ve been working on for over a year. At the rate I’m going, I’ll be done in about five years or so. Yeah.
It’s been a while since Peanut has made an appearance. By my rough calculation, it’s almost her 10th birthday. Time has flown.
