Wow, it's really been hard to get a few minutes to knit, lately. I'm still on vacation, but I've been going to so many rehearsals, as well as preparing music for the new semester and trying to do household chores and cleaning that had been put off. So, my knitting has been a bit neglected, and I've been feeling particularly scatterbrained and random (which will become progressively evident through the length of this blog post). However, I finally got a chance to get some pictures of my current project, and I'll have some time to work on it today due to a cancelled rehearsal!
My current project is the Irish Hiking Scarf by Adrian Bizilia. The yarn is JoSharp Silkroad Aran, which I got on sale at my LYS. I really love both the yarn and the pattern, and I'm really looking forward to finishing this scarf, so I can wear it!
I have time to work on it today, and hopefully I'll steal some time tomorrow as well, so I can get finished! I feel like it's been ages since I completed a project.
I've also gotten a little work done on the Transformers pillow front, but it's still not done. I had decided not to give it to Ben for Christmas, so there are no pressing deadlines on it, now.
Today, I spent an hour or so enjoying a webcomic that I've just become aware of, The Knit Princess. Someone brought it up on Ravelry today in a thread, and I fell in love with it immediately! I've been catching up, reading the archived comics. It's about a young female college student and knitter, and all of her yarn-related adventures, and I highly recommend it. It's very optimistic, light-hearted and clever.
So, I'm going to go enjoy the rest of this day. I hope that you are all having a great day, as well.
