Not a whole lot of knitting happened, today. I pulled out the provisional cast on for Ben's dice bag and got the cast on edge back on the needles. However, something happened which caused the working yarn to get threaded through a stitch, somehow. So, I need to fix that and I have nowhere near enough patience for that tonight. I'm off tomorrow, so I hope to finish the dice bag so that Ben can use it at our Numenera game on Sunday. I'm also hoping to get some work done on the gloves, which are at a fiddly stage right now. 

I got some new tea from work today, so I'm hoping for a day of relaxing knitting while I lament the fact that I am not at Stitches. I can also get some decent daylight pictures of things tomorrow. Nothing really exciting to say tonight, it's been a pretty blah kind of day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I Live!

Almost a year has gone by. I think it's a little funny that my last post before this involved cranking out a quick washcloth, and today I just happened to do the same. I think things have finally settled enough that I'm ready to come back. I'm gonna keep it short, tonight. This is the washcloth I just finished, and the very beginning of a dice bag for my hubby:

Apologies for the crappy pic, it's the middle of the night here. I used a crocheted provisional cast on for the first time, which I really liked. I wish I had thought to start doing that sooner, since I'm not a big fan of the other provisional cast on method. 

In other knit news, I'm working on a pretty cool pair of fingerless gloves using some Opal that one of my customers gifted me! I'm pleased that I started them when I did, because they will be finished before it starts to get cold. I'll get some in-progress pics of those for the next post.
