So let's get on with it.
I finished knitting Antarktis and got her blocked. For some reason, my points curled but I'm okay with that. I actually like it when the points of a shawl curl. The curl seems to help the shawl hug me and keeps it from falling off my shoulders.
I just love her muted colors and think I'll get lots of wear out of this shawl/scarf. Assuming I can figure out how to wear an asymmetrical triangle scarf without looking like a cowboy-wannabe. I always end up looking like a bank robber from the Old West. Fashion is definitely not my thing.
And while we're talking about cowboys & bank robbers...
I finally got around to blocking my modified Reyna. If you take a look, don't pay attention to my Ravelry notes. They need major editing. I'd intended to turn Reyna into a semicircle instead of a triangle but Netflix must have gotten in the way and I ended up with a 'heart' shaped triangle instead of a semicircle. A huge, giant heart shaped triangle. No wonder this one took so much more yarn than expected! I still like it and think I'll wear it often, once again assuming it doesn't turn me into Bank Robber Cowboy Bob.
|Lacy Brown Infinity Scarf|
I finished knitting the brown cowl. (I really need a better name for it.) This one turned out to be another reminder that I should always check my gauge before casting on. It's way too long. WAY too long. Instead of doubling it, I quadruple it around my neck. And it hasn't even been blocked yet. I still really like it though. The yarn is so soft and fluffy and the open stitch pattern makes it light as a feather.
Autumn Fire is coming along and I reached the six inches in width goal I'd set for myself. Hopefully it will grow another six inches in October.
I started on my Christmas knitting. I've already frogged the green thing once and I may end up frogging the striped thing. I can't decide if I like the beads or if they were a horrible idea.
|Basket Weave Hat|
And I started another hat for my shop. This one has a basket weave brim and will have a simple stockinette crown. There's no pattern for this one, I'm just making it up as I go.
All in all, not bad, especially when you consider how many of these projects got frogged and restarted. And when you take into consideration the nervous breakdown I was having at the beginning of the month over the new job.... Not bad at all! And, I think I've finally settled into the new job. It's not so awful now. Talking over the radio still terrifies me but the rest of my duties aren't so scary anymore. I think I'll survive.
Dammit! Now Gloria Gaynor is stuck in my head.
