On the knitting front, I'm suffering from a case of knitting ADD AND lack of time to do everything I want to do. Unfortunately, the time thing isn't going to get any better. Things seem to get busier and busier until Christmas(yes I'm thinking that far ahead). Here's what I'm working on this week:
1. trying to finish the sleeve and start the hood on my hooded T
2. seaming(and hopefully stuffing)a shoebox doll for Little Diva
Here's what I want to be working on:
1. Jumper into Fall-a-thon: I have yarn/patterns for 3 sweaters(of the 4 I'm planning on doing). I'll be starting the sleeves on Rogue tomorrow and once I finish the above mentioned hooded T; I'll start my son's hooded sweater. I also want to start my Albertville sweater but I may wait to see if we're going back to Utah for a visit, because I have questions already!
2. Beginner's Triangle shawl--this poor thing--I love working on it, but it never seems to make it into the rotation. It requires concentration which I haven't been able to muster lately.
3. Preemie Project--I have 2 hats and a blanket I need to get done before the "pumpkin" deadline
Here's what is eagerly waiting in the wings:
1. Double Secret Probation-a-thon: two biggies in here; just dying to get rolling.
2. Numerous objects from A Gathering of Lace(have yarn; need time)
3. felting--quite a few here IF the mood strikes
On top of all that; you all know I want to stitch again--and lately there are many things catching my eye in that department.
SO what to do, what to do. Looks like it's time to break out the coffee maker(which is still in it's box--notice that continuing to unpack has not entered the "to do" list).
Happy knitting, reading, and stitching,
How often do you wash your fabric for each project? Do you wait until
the very end until to wash it or do you wash it more than once?
This is an easy one. I only wash mine once; at the end and no matter how colorfast manufacturers say the thread is I still hold my breath every time. When I washed L&L's The Wedding, I was petrified that the black from the tux would bleed all over the boatload of white; I was so nervous about it that I almost didn't wash it at all. But never fear my DMC did very well and it definitely looked peppier after it had been washed.
Booking Through Thursday
There seem to be quite a few people in addition to me who have read David Eddings series, The Belgariad, multiple times. So, this week, a few questions about these books.
- First, have you read this five-book series? If so, how many times? I have never heard of it, but it sounds intriguing. And because of everything I have heard about this series, I went out and bought the books yesterday. The clerk at B&N asked if I had read them and I said no--she said they are the most amazing books she's ever read. She even rereads them to "visit" with specific characters. So here's to adding something else to the "to be read" list!! :)
- What brings you back to read this story again?
- Who are your favorite characters? Why?
- If you could magically be a part of their saga, would you? Would you want to take the place of one of the characters, or be someone new?
