Busy Bees

Today, actually this week, has been full of cleaning, not so much knitting being done. I am still knitting away on my Super Secret Project-it's fun and right now easily memorised. Really all you need to remember is TWO rows. Easy peasy.

It's been drizzling today, the sun never even peeked out of the clouds...I know because I was up before dawn...and once again no soccer. Today was supposed to be Micci's make up game for last Saturday's game that was rained out. Oh well. Just gives me more time to clean, less time to knit.

We have about a week before we HAVE to migrate off of Blogger...I keep bugging my husband: you are running out of time!! Come on! Poor guy is overworked. This Spring has been murder on us. Between Jamey volunteering with the Final Four and special project AND Micci and Lorelei's activities our evenings have been jammed up.

Hopefully the Super Secret Project can be finished before May starts and I can concentrate once again on projects I can actually show you. I'll prolly work on the shawl and Kimmy's baby blanket. The blanket needs to be done by June. I do not want to procrastinate on it this pattern again. We all remember the pain I was in trying to complete the first Snow Flurries--I do not want to relive that!

Buzzing Along...

No more brain fugue! or even fatigue! I worked out the stitch problem and wrangled it into a triangle shape. I COULD see the triangle, just couldn't get the pieces to fit and I KNEW the solution was just beyond my "sight." So I turned off my internet browser and turned up my iTunes playlist. I blocked out the world and focused. Viola, problem solved and a good week of aggravation and turmoil ended. Woot!

I've been buzzing along ever since...the shawl is coming along nicely now. Smooth sailin' ahead. Knock on wood.

I wish I could show you pictures, the yarn I am using and the pattern is just perfect together. My friend, Yvonne, from Germany dyes the most beautiful yarn and she asked me to design a shawl to show case the yarns in her new summer yarn club: Jewel Tones Lace (etsy link). There's also another designer working with Yvonne so you'll receive my pattern and her pattern with as part of the club, along with other fun surprises. You have until May 15th to sign up.

She also has a sign up thru ArtFire, so you can sign up there if you prefer: Jewel Tones Lace Yarn Club.

Have a look at all her various yarns they are all gorgeous!

Yes I know, I am such a temptress.
