I have had a ton of stuff going on that I have wanted to blog about, but sadly time has been short. I took a class on drop spindling! Perhaps I'll post some pics of my haphazard "yarn" I created. It's some of the ugliest stuff I have seen. The Frakkin' Smeggy socks are done, and I bound off the back of my test knit Trail Cable hoodie (yay!!!). I have now started on a light weight cardigan for summer. It is the Fleurette cardigan by one of Knit Picks independent designers, Melissa Dominguez. I am using the recommended yarn for the pattern which is KP's comfy fingering, in the whisker colorway. It's a nice light grey that I think will go well with my summer cami tops. I am hoping to have it finished in time for SDCC and Sock Summit.
In non knitting related news, Joe and I finished re-watching all of the new Doctor Who series. So we are anxiously awaiting the new episode. Since we will be at con when it airs, we are planning to watch it with some of our friends and guests at con. Yeah, 2 weeks until con. Saying that makes me want to cry. Although, I think that is more of a visceral reaction. I am really pretty prepared this year and things are going really smoothly. Actually myself, the treasurer (Renee) and the director of publicity (Elmira) all think it's going a little too smoothly. Oh well, gift horses and mouths and such. I also started reading a new book, which is super awesome!! I just kept getting bored with Killer Angels and so I put it down. I am now reading Yarn: Remembering the Way Home by Kyoko Mori. It is a memoir and so far is fantastic. It's well written and is just captivating. For the non-knitters out there, it's not really about knitting (at least not yet), but does include some knitting themes. I would recommend it to anyone. Especially if you love memoirs.
Ok, I gotta go get some work done. More soon I hope.
