These Past Weeks Paraphrased

Well, it's been a while, hasn't it? I didn't mean to have such a huge gap, but then I went on vacation... and well, time got away from me, I guess.

This is just a quickie post saying that I still live and that pictures will be coming soon. I've made a fair amount of progress on the Aeolian (11 out of 12 repeats of the Yucca chart), and I finished my first Rivendell sock today (on a related note, what is with that heel??? some errata needs to be published for that one). I finally picked up my Rivendell Smoke Ring once I got home and I'm now 45% done.

I meant to finish the Avalon scarf and Evenstar shawl when I was on vacation, but that didn't happen. It was a very low key vaca, and none of us did a whole lot (but it was really fun because both Si and Di got to come).

But I did decide when we were away that when we got home, I'd frog the Burnished Tunic. And that's what I did, a few minutes before we left for our knit night's Chamber of Secrets gathering (we're doing a marathon of Harry Potter movies, in preparation of the 7th movie being released in November. It's fun - there are games and prizes - I have - *counts* - 4 more skeins of yarn because of it). I decided that I would wait until I could acquire the amount of yarn that is correct for my actual size (I was optimistically delusional when I ordered the yarn intended for this sweater at first).

So, I still have a lot of knitting to do, and as always, when you have a lot of knitting to do, new projects call to you. I'll talk more about that in my next post, but at this point, I've been holding out - but who knows how long I'll be able to resists the startitis. Maybe I'll just do what Di did - I'll print out the patterns of the things I want to make (good thing I just got new ink) instead of casting them on. Hmmm...

Until next time,

P.S. Oh! I set the twist on my handspun (it remained a single) and I bought the wolf plushie pattern - I just need to buy the needles and I'm on my way (the needles I have are uncomfortable to work with for this pattern)!
