ADD Knitting

Standard

Okay, it was actually nice out today, which means I lost some knit time to going outside and shoveling, and the subsequent arm pain. So it goes. I did make it almost to the back alley, which gives me great joy. If tomorrows weather holds I may very well be able to complete my tunnel.

Last night I was itching to make something small and quick and easy, and well that’s asking a lot. But even still Leethal’s patterns came through

Thusly with a little leftover sock yarn, a Buttony Chevron Cuff was born. I may start compulsively knitting these in my spare time, great quick stash busters, and I figure they’d be good all purpose birthday gifts if I end up knitting too many. I’m a thinker like that.

(Please ignore my dirty screen) I am almost done sock one of L’Amour et la Morte by SpillyJane. I started the toe while watching the knitgirllls (as you can see in the background).

I was worried that the colorwork might be too tight across my calves, but going up a size seems to have been enough, they fit snuggly on my man feet. If I accidentally end up shrinking them (lets face it it happens sometimes), then my mom gets them. Which is why I don’t mind too much when I shrink socks, mom loves getting them.

In other news test knitting… it  going on. Fleece washing, also going on. I managed to get a lot of housework done today as well as getting up my (new to me) curtains which are very hippy, like a splash of happy if you will.

And now I think it’s time for a well deserved hot bath and some sleep 🙂 later all.
