Chicks with Sticks

The Irish Hiking Scarf is coming along. The wool was really hot when it was in my lap in the sun. I guess wool IS supposed to be hot. I just thought I would point this out.

The neighbor and I went to Chicks with Sticks last night at the LYS. I think she had fun, she was kind of nervous because she is a new knitter. I had fun because I just needed an out. Things have been busy, and hectic, and I’m just really tired.

I did pick up a new ball of yarn, one of their magic stash balls, which should be fun to knit up. This scarf will be for a friend who has wanted a scarf for over two years, but I was tired of knitting scarves at the time. So, now she will finally have it. AND more importantly, it WILL be cute. Pictures to follow.

Big Brother tonight. YAY!

Irish Hiking Scarf

Still working on the Irish Hiking Scarf. It’s about two feet right now. I just hap hazardly knit a row here, a row there.

 Today is the oldests birthday. He’s 10, which is hard to believe. Very proud of him, and love him so much.

 Other than that, it was a quiet week-end, with not too much going on. No pictures.

Must knit these

These beauties here were knitted on tooth picks, and I have to have them! lobe.jpg

I’ve slowly been working on my Irish Hiking Scarf, and have about 18 inches of it done. I can’t wait to get more finished, and start something else.

Welcome and Ramblings!

Movie/Book Review

 I recently read Bee Season by Myla Goldberg. The book was really complex and the insight was spectacular. I enjoyed it, so I was excited to see the movie. I was so disappointed in the movie, the movie just begged for a narrative during parts, but they just let you guess what was going on. I missed so much that I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t read the book. I was really disappointed. REALLY!

I am in the first foot of the irish hiking scarf! I am loving how it is turning out! The pattern is here…

The best part is that it’s free. I’m knitting this up for our trip to Scotland. I was itching to get to the yarn store for this project, but since I wasn’t able to I dug around in the stash and found some great cascade, a plum and black mix. It’s knitting up fabulous, and I’m tackling my stash.

I’m, also, waiting for some yarn from knitpicks. It’s the dye-your-own! That’s all I want to do! Color color color.
