So thanks to a crazy, somewhat last minute trip to Fairbanks, I had a ton of hat knitting to complete for me and the kids. Then I decided to finish off a tea cozy, knit up a coffee sleeve to go with it, and browsed around to stack up my future project queue a little more. My poor hands are taking some abuse among the knitting, piano, and a Wilton's cake decorating class, but it's so FUN!
And because I am the laziest blogger in the land and don't want to insert a ton of images, I'm just going to link dump from my Ravelry page, which is updated much more frequently and has details on all the projects, too.
I have been a productive little knitter, no? Just last night I over dyed some interesting *cough*ugly*cough* ultra bulky, slubby stuff that has been languishing in my stash for half a decade now. It's a beautiful violet-blue and I'm making it into mitten for myself tonight. I also have some Crystal Palace Merino Stripes from back in 2004/2005 that I'm turning into one, maybe two berets, and a simple shawl. It's pretty, but has a weird texture. Nice and warm, though, and suitable for these projects.
Once all this crazy stash busting is done, I will take it a step further and knit up Pembroke Shawl, from the current Interweave Knits edition, in the final leftovers of green from Callie's Alpaca Baby Blanket. It will be over dyed a gray of some sort, I'm excited :)
Be praying my hand doesn't fall off from abuse, it's worth it for the music, cake, and fluffies!
