When I was at knitting camp, someone made the comment that experienced knitters just make big mistakes faster. That’s certainly true in the case of my Advent Scarf. Here are the first 3 1/2 days worth.
Let me just say I love it. It’s the only reason I haven’t quit. The pattern is very well written. It’s not the patterns fault. I shouldn’t knit when I’m sleep deprived. And it’s my own fault that I’m sleep deprived. I breezed through day one, and I’ve messed up every day since. Right now I have a mistake to fix on day 4. If I would just go to bed before 2 AM just one night, it would help.
So, this is what happened last night about 9 PM. And no, I didn’t go to bed early after this!
I woke up to the kids laughing at Georgie and I. She is such a people dog. And she’s nice and warm. Which is a good thing, because this is my back yard this morning. (Don’t you just love my back yard photos every few months! Ha!)
We got about 7 inches of snow last night and there was no wind. I love it and think it’s just gorgeous. (Sorry A Betty!)
I feel like I have severe ADD in my crafting right now. I’m not finishing anything and it’s making me a little crazy. I’ve spent a lot of time on the Advent Scarf, redoing what I already did. I’m still working on the pink blob. More about that when I ever get it finished. And I’m doing some spinning. I finished this the other day. (Oh, I guess I finished something.)
It started out as this.
It’s a merino silk blend from Wonderland Dyeworks on etsy. Lets just say I’m getting really spoiled by the wool silk blends. I ended up with 544 yards. Maybe I’m going to have to start knitting with some of my handspuns one of these days. Maybe after Christmas.
Right now I’m spinning some Corriedale from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. I purchased it at the knitting retreat last month. The color is “I Mad Heart You” and I bought both fiber and yarn in the colorway. Love it!
We have a pretty quiet weekend. I hope to finish something…..anything! I may start wrapping gifts as they show up, because my kids are nosy!!!! Superblonde requested Paula Deen’s Chicken Pot Pie for dinner tonight. Tomorrow, it’s church and that’s about it.
Oh, My Hero says hi! (Not sure why his mouth was wide open. He actually was saying “hi” to me!)
