Qiviut….

As previousley mentioned, my parents went to Canada and I asked my mom to poke around a yarn shop if they saw one and pick me up something fun. After a few days, I get a call from my mom and she is informing me that she can only find “this stuff” call Qiviuk…Still cracks me up that this was ALL she could find. Here is the long awaited picture.

Each of these skeins contain 214 yards of decidence. My mom said that I can start the payment play anytime….Details? My Dad picked out the color and it is the most beautiful marine blue. I still see a Anne Hanson lace something in this.

I am working on my Dungeness shawl, but progress has been slow due to the fact that I had to work. I love working, so it’s really not a big deal.

 

Tomorrow I am off to get some bloodwork done and hit a few stores and get my glasses adjusted.

I still have about 15 skeins to dye for the Yarn Harlot’s reatreat, but I think I am in good shape.

I had a completely similiar blog post all ready to post earlier but I think I hit a button and it all went away. I was kind of ticked off about the whole thing.

Anyway, happy knitting to all!

Time management…..

I don’t have to tell most of you that I wear many hats just like the rest of you and making time for all has become a delicate balancing act. Sometimes I fail miserably at dividing myself 8 different way. I am also the first to admit that I kinda suck at time management. This might need to be a New Year’s Resolution..??

My hubby and son did a Duathalon on Saturday and I was as proud as any Mom could be. Bryce did a 3/4 mile run, a 2 mile bike ride, and then another 3/4 mile run. Hubby did a 3 mile run, 10 mile bike, and another 3 mile run. Bryce came in 8th and was only 4 minutes away from first. I was impressed to say the least.  Both slept about 12 hours Saturday night and I was able to continue my mini sock marathon…see….

The yarn is one of my favorites, Jitterbug and we are sailing along…it’s all leg now. Cross your fingers and toes that this guy does not suffer from the dreaded SSS. The SSS is a horrible fate for those who love and knit socks…it’s the Single Sock Syndrome. This one has been on the needles for over a year and tucked away. Next time I cast on for socks, it will be 2 at a time. Enough of the SSS. We want everyone to have a buddy!

I am working on a new project called Dungeness Shawl by Samantha Kirby and it is so sweet I couldn’t resist. I am doing mine in Madeline Tosh Light in Pecan and using a natural color in merino/silk for the contrast. It looks yummy! The picture I took of it against my jeans is not the most flattering. I will take a better photo tomorrow.

I am off to help the boy with his homework and to get some knitting done before I fall asleep.

Happy Knitting!
