WIP Wednesday: All The Things!

Writing:
Fey Led – Yeah … no. I’ve not had time to do much other than knit.

Knitting:
So, my husband has been concerned about the whole not sleeping thing. My friends on Sunday asked “Just how many projects do you have going at one time?” And I think my answer explains why I’ve not been sleeping much, there’s just too much to do!

Balmoral Bonnet: It’s been drying from the felting (first time ever felting!) Now I need to cut it (eep!) and sew on ribbons.

Fire and Ice Gloves: On the second one, the easier one. I find the right twists to be easier to do than the left twists, so I left it for second.

Thorny: A cowl for giving, thankfully we’re not exchanging until the 1st. Also, I’ll be doing a few mods to make it shorter and to have buttons. I’m very glad the pattern is only 6 stitches so I could work on that while out shopping this weekend.

And Basic Socks: Just for me, when I can’t take time to look at a pattern, like when out shopping or chatting with friends. I only had one skein of the sock yarn so I added a bit of overdyed yarn I had on hand for toes and I’m knitting from the same ball of yarn. The stripping is interesting and it’ll be fun to see how it comes out.

 

Reading:

Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafizi. Yeah … the book when on a walkabout for a few days and I couldn’t read. I think that if I don’t finish it by the new year then I’ll drop it for now. It’s not a bad book, it’s just not grabbing me. I do want to read it at some point, perhaps when I’m less busy and can spend a bit more time just sitting and reading it. I liked it in Austin when I could sit and read for a while.

    Love the cowl pattern. I thought the sock yarn was made that way. Made sense to me. Lovely all.
