Quick hello!

April 13, 2010

Loving the possibility of the future

Just popping in to say a quick Hi! to you all! Things are a whirlwind of crazy over here as I finish one job and move on to a new one, in the environmental sector. I’ve been so busy finishing up oldjob tasks and learning about newjob projects, but that hasn’t stopped me from finishing some projects and starting some new ones. As always, a more current update on knitting and crochet are on ravelry, but here are a couple shots of 2 things that are currently being knit and crochet for sanity sake during all my life changes.

swatching
A top-down raglan cardigan, striping Cascade 220 in gray with Madelinetosh DK (new name for her worsted weight wool) from the Magnolia Society a few years back (colorway is Carmine, I believe). I just split off the arms from the body this morning.

Hexagon Blanket, part deux
Coming to terms with the fact that my tiny hexagon scrap blanket would take eternity to finish, I finished it off at the size it was (more of a throw rug…which is what it will be used for in my studio space) and started a different kind of hexagon blanket. This time using Nova’s Ruby Hexagon Blanket pattern, a palette of blues/greens/browns from the worsted scraps, and edging in a light gray Cascade 220 (not pictured).

So for now, I am keeping busy, busy, busy, counting down to April 21st and looking forward to the unknown future and where it takes me. I’ll be back in a week or so with some FO news. Until then, more knitting, crocheting, workworkwork, working on decluttering the house and continuing momentum on renovating our lovely home, and hanging out with Lolly when she is in Philly!

You know what, friends? Life is pretty great.

    How exciting! Congratulations on this new stage of your life. I’m a smidge jealous 😉

    That striped cardigan looks gorgeous. I’ll have to find it in Ravelry and give you a big heart! (in more boring terms, I’ll favorite it)

    Is “the Final Countdown” playing in your head in an evil loop?
