Most of the items on my to-do list yesterday got pushed aside. I didn’t bother cleaning house (which for once isn’t in much of a terrible state) or work or anything else. Other than a brief hour to hour and a half when my brothers stopped by to hang out and bug me, I spent the entire evening knitting. It was glorious.
It took just about the entire weekend to pick out what I wanted to make with the new yarn my brother gave me. I knew I wanted a shawl so I could show off the colours of the yarn, but I wasn’t entirely sure what to go with.
Yesterday was, all in all, a pretty good day. We (folks at the office) went to work, and I was even serenaded by someone with a morbid birthday song. It was so much fun. As the afternoon wound down, I was feeling pretty good, though exhausted from allergies. Then, what do I see?
I know what you’re thinking. This is a knitting blog, and this is two posts in a row that have nothing to do with knitting. She’s incorrigible. I really am. But, it’s my birthday and I’ll write what I want to. Tee-hee.
I have been absolutely enamoured with the recent trend of painted rhinestone jewellery. I think it’s so much fun and a great way to incorporate colour, but it can be a bit pricey at times, depending on where you look. So, I decided I’d try my hand and make something for myself.
It’s coming along very slowly, this shawl. You’d think that after having just made one, I’d have realised just how much time this pattern takes. I’m nearing row 30 of 70-ish, so I’m not even quite halfway through.
I think it’s safe to say at this point that I messed up. It’s not the pattern; I know that for sure. The pattern is great! It was me. Somewhere along the way, I messed something up, and now I have a green, android bunny.
He’s going to need a name, I think. The cuter he gets, the more I think my Android actually needs to be named. I don’t know what yet.
I didn’t get a lot done last night, but I did sit down to my stash and figure out what yarn I want to use on my Android project. This is probably the most thinking I’ve done when it came to colour. I have a few different neon-ish greens. One is cotton, one acrylic, and one actual wool.
