Thanks to the dreary weather I ended up having Friday night off work. It’s my first weekend night off in two months, plus it coincided with our happy hour at work, so I was able to head to my favorite local Irish Pub with my coworkers. Plus they now have Smithwicks on tab, it was a prefect Friday night, I had a couple of beers, the world’s best chicken strips and went home early.
In knitting news. I’ve found my next two projects, hopefully I’ll have time to cast on next week. I know I wont have time before the 4th so I started something easy, a blanket. I bought the yarn to make blankets for my nieces for Christmas a couple of months ago and Christmas will be here before I know it. Because I wanted soft and machine washable I went with Caron Simply Soft.
I’m still working away on my Scarf from Victorian Lace Today, I finally got the first Harry Potter book on CD in so I’ve been listening to it and knitting away. This my first lace project and I used Paton’s Grace. I didn’t want to use expensive yarn for my first attempt in case I hate it and I really loved this color.
My next two projects the Lace Tank and the Lace Cardigan both from the Vogue Knitting Summer 2007 issue.
After the tank and the scarf I hope I’ll feel confident enough to tackle this Cardigan. I really love it.
