Tangled In Yarn & Covered In Glitter

Sweet Buttery Hell

You know how you really enjoy doing things and do them a lot but then life happens all over you and you can't do them hardly at all any more and it makes you really grumpy?

That's how I am with school affecting my knitting. ARGH!

At least it's a good cause. I'll have my first degree (Liberal Studies, English emphasis) by December, with a second (Administration of Justice) either in May or December of 2005, depending on the classes I can get next semester. But still! No excuse!

My in-between-classes project has been an absolutely lovely scarf pattern I snaked from Fidget. It has basketweave cabling and is my first cabled project. I'm about, oh, 1/5 of the way done? maybe a little more. Time consuming, but I am loving the texture. And I'm doing cabling with it! Yay! What's next, intarsia?

...nah, that's just crazy talk. :D

I am such a horrible person. I only barely sent my secret pal's box off yesterday. *head in hands*. It's been sitting on my living room floor looking at me all forlorn-like for a week, but I hadn't been able to get myself in gear until yesterday. I hope she enjoys everything inside. And it *has* been sent. So. :/ I Still feel a wee bit guilty.

SPEAKING of secret pals! I got a package from mine! *bounce* It had a little bag of pretty beaded stitch markers (one was on an earring backing, but it's so pretty I'm considering sacrificing another to the same fate!) and beautiful golden crane embroidery scissors with an attached point protector that matched the stitch markers! Lovely. Thank you so much, whoever you are, secret pal!

Time to go re-write a brief and study for my Sociology midterm. Don't you wish you spent your gorgeous, early-fall Saturdays like me? ;p


  • Hey! You get down with your bad cabley self! You must post pictures when you finish!

  • I'm with yeah...I've resorted to small christmas ornament knitting because I needed a quick fix that would show results fast hahaha! My (larger) sweaters just aren't getting any attention since school started! :(

    Good luck with the soci. mid-term!

  • Man, I love cables. They're not so difficult, are they? Good luck with school. I finished one degree not so long ago, now I'm thinking of getting another. Somebody stop me! Let's see pictures of this scarf!
