in progress...

Over and over today at work, I did the data entry equivelent to frogging. Enter 25 lines of complicated ordering information, get to the LAST line, realize the sales person (who is on a "conference" in Mexico) didn't give you all the info needed, undo 25 lines of complicated ordering information. Repeat.


I kept looking longingly at my bag where my knitting was resting peacefully, calling out to me: "You won't need to frog us! Work on us for a while!" (there were 2 projects in there)(you think I would only take ONE thing to knit at work?)


I'm working on a teeny tiny hoodie for my brand new niece (born Feb. 8). I haven't met her yet, but I will in the next couple of days. I don't know if the hoodie will be done in time, but I hope so.
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Tiny Tots

My handspun sock is speeding along:
I love the way the yarn is striping. I can't wait to finish this one. The next one is on the wheel:

I want a snow day*. Or at least a Saturday so I can just knit. And spin. And knit some more.

*I've never lived in a place where we got snow days! Even now, in Calgary where they don't clear side streets when it snows, we don't get snow days. It might take you over an hour to drive 10km to work, but no snow days. I have to admit a twinge of jealousy whenever I hear about a snow shutting down cities in the States**.
**I don't mean to make light of the seriousness of the storms y'all got hit with this year. I just want an excuse to stay home.

ETA: I almost forgot! THANK YOU for all the lovely comments on my red sweater. I wore it the other day and love love love it. Lesley asked about the sleeves. They weren't intentionally belled, but I do like how they behave like they are. I didn't increase for them, but because I used a 4x4 ribbing, they aren't pulled as tight to the wrists as other sleeves may be. If anyone is interested, I am planning to try to sort out my notes for the modifications I did. (I'm planning another (and maybe another) sometime soon). I'll post them when I have them sorted.


  1. Ooh, I'd love it if you posted your mods. I just love that sweater!

  2. i would LOVE to see the sweater notes. This is gorgeous and I can totally see myself wearing it (for once)

  3. Your spinning has come a long way! It looks great.

    I'd love to see the notes from the sweater. Such a pretty pattern...

  4. I think our lack of snow days is downright criminal. We should get a freebie just to make up for our incredible lack of snow days.

  5. neener, neener LOL, we almost get RAIN DAYS here in San Diego!! Happily I am working on several socks to keep my feet toasty during our incredibly puny winter. That lasts about a month. I am planting tomatoes in the garden already, which means that soon it iwll be time to knit outside in the gazebo. Trade you your weather in August!!!

  6. Just wondering if you ever got your notes sorted for the red sweater. I really like it.


Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'd love to hear from you.
