Spherey is finished!
Pattern: Spherey by Jess Hutch (link takes you to pattern book).
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Daffodil, Knitpicks Merino Style in Strawberry
Needles: Sz US 6 Susan Bates DPNs
Dates: Saturday Dec 10-Sunday Dec 11
Thoughts: Cute! I was a bit sick of it by the end, but I think most of that was the working on 4 DPNs rather than 5. I'm a fan of 5, but I only had 4 sz 6's. Just something about how I hold the 5 feels better than the 4. I really want to make some of the other patterns, so look for those to come in the future!
I also went through all of the pile of knits to attach tags to them tonight. Yes, I made tags!
I know it's really hard to see - I can't figure out how to manually focus it. But they say, "Handmade for you by Jenn" on the front and the back has care instructions depending on the fiber used. I attached them to the knitted goods with some red and white ribbon and safety pins as needed. I think they look really cute, but I have some ideas to improve the next batch. I bought a pack of 25 "creative tags" from JoAnn's for $1.99 and printed out some labels and stuck them on.
The Man called me today from work and asked if I had time to make a scarf by next Wednesday for his co-teacher. Sure honey....
You know you knit/craft/sew too much when one of the employees at JoAnn's says "I see you in here whenever I'm in here!" And then tells you "See you later!"
In exciting news, I have a job interview on Thursday! Woo Hoo! Send positive thoughts my way on Thursday at 8:30 CST. I need all the help I can get!
I'm thinking we need a "selfish" KAL starting in January. After all this holiday knitting, we deserve some selfish knitting time! Anyone interested? Email me at knitnlit AT hotmail DOT com or leave a comment if you are interested, and I'll get it started! And if you're interested and have any technical know-how and want to make a button, feel free!
Another FO and some new knitting books tomorrow!
