Some Wednesday reading for you.

Another week has gone by, and I continue to neglect the blog. Why, oh why!? Well, I have been busy...well, not really. Work has been a little crazy and stressful, and the apartment has been a mess, and all I can seem to do is sit on the couch and watch Bridezillas and Platinum Weddings on WE. Oh well. Sometimes sitting on the couch being lazy is fun. And, I have been knitting a little here and a wee bit there.

I knit these booties up to match the umbilical cord hat that I knit awhile back for my college roommate, Karen: I knit them flat then (poorly) seamed them up. I think they look pretty cute. Not bad for an hour or less worth of work!

I started the Branching Out Scarf too:
This is with that alpaca yarn that I got from a coworker. I am really loving this project. I am interested to see how this is going to block out. Normally I knit these kinds of lacy things with wool, so I am not sure how well it will work. I do like a good experiement!

My Canyon Sunrise socks are coming right along. I have no pic today because I might be at work right now and I don't have one to show you. I decided to go with a short ankle sock. Really, it's just so I will have leftover yarn so I can try to squeeze a second pair out of. I want a million pairs of socks out of that yarn!

Hopefully some of these UFOs will become FOs soon, so I can start new projects soon. I mean, there may be some Raven Series yarn on its way to me soon, and I know I am going to have to immediately knit with it!

Happy knitting! :)

P.S. I am very angry with Sarah right now. She had a link to the llama song on her blog, and I listened to it and now it has been in my head for two days. Sarah, seriously, I am shaking my fist at you! ;)

  1. Your scarf is very pretty. Isn't the alpaca soft to work with?

    BTW, how did you get the photo in your header?

  2. I've gotten TOTALLY hooked on "Say Yes to the Dress". Most excellent TV for knitting.

  4. Muahahahaha.
    Love the branching out scarf though. I did one in cream alapaca and loved it. (Also one in a dark blue mercerized cotton, but it won't stay blocked. Go figure.)

  5. I do like your Branching Out! I think you'll find it will block okay, but that it doesn't quite have the memory of wool.

    Llama, llama, duck.
