… which is why I haven’t been posting. (Anna-Liza here). Been busy, but not with anything really interesting. So if you’re interested in the not-so-interesting details, read on! (Cute pic at the end as a reward if you do).
I started riding the bus to and from work, now that there’s bus service between where I live and where I work. The bus stop is about half a mile from home, and the stop near work is a bit less than half a mile from the office, so I’m getting a little more exercise, and the ride itself is most pleasant. I now have about 50 minutes more knitting/reading/vegging time added to my day!
As a result, I do have knitted stuff I’m working on, but haven’t taken pictures of any of it yet. (So, you know, there’s that “I can’t post about it ’til I have pictures” thing).
I have one Traveling Woman shawl finished for me and one in progress for Darlin’ K’s grandmother. It’s really more of a shawlette as written, which is great for a summer wrap that I can tuck into my purse, handy for over-air-conditioned restaurants or the evening chill that can come so quickly in Colarado. Oh, wait, I do have pics of the one for me.
This one was made from one skein of Plain & Fancy sport singles in the “Turquoise/Brown” colorway.
No pics yet of the one for my Grandma-in-law, but it’s out of handpained Wildfoote in a cream shade with several shades of pink and yellow flashes. She loves pink.
I’ve also got another, warmer shawl up on the blocking board.
This one was woven on a triangle loom. I made the main part in Wyoming last September and I finally got it out, blocked it, and put the fringe on. I have added some colorful wooden beads to the fringe and am still deciding if I want to add more. I’ll have a finished pic soon, and will do a post about making it. Really, I will.
Knitting Sprite, Outlaw Son and Wee Sprite are moving to Longmont this month, which makes me smile every time I think about it. Maybe she’ll have more posting time once they’ve settled in – she has had some cool stuff going on. Wee Sprite is six months old now and cuter than ever, impossible as it may seem!
So there you go. I have to say, I’m quite happy with a quiet life! But it’s not so exciting to post about.
