A lazy Saturday

But not that lazy. I spent 2 hours in the kitchen washing up, drying, cleaning, including the white cupboard doors, which somehow manage to collect filth that I didn’t even know existed 🙁 Then I put some washing on. Then I dossed a bit… 🙂
Then I frogged Tempting 🙁 I looked at the 8 inches of ribbing and decided that the rib pattern wasn’t for me in an aran yarn. I just frogged it while watching the Ross Emily wedding episode of Friends so that helped 😀 So now I have 696 meters (760 yards ish) of Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran in Cedar. I may have to buy some more in a different dye lot to make something, or play around a bit. I may even have to try and design something myself, but I’m not sure how to do it. I’d like a v-neck design, but I haven’t done that before… I suppose if I’ve already frogged 8 inches of ribbing, it wouldn’t do any harm to frog something again! Or, if one of the projects I’m on works, I might adapt it and use the Jaeger for it. I’ll have a rummage through my patterns and stuff for ideas…
Which brings me to something else. I’m now a little shorter on projects, but have lots in mind. I’m making the fluffy camisole from Weekend Knitting in Kid Silk Haze (Drab), following the knitalong on Craftster, but it isn’t moving too fast. I do like it so far though 🙂 I have high hopes for it! I’m also making the Shrug from Scarf Style, but I’m not sure whether I’ll have it the same way. The polo neck thing could look really silly, so I’m hoping I could adapt it to exist without it.
STILL making the socks 😀 They will be one of those things that never get finished, along with the Sirdar jumper because of the plasticy yarn.
Plus I have Belle Star planned, and Lucky from SNBN, which I was itching to buy yarn for online today, and ended up telling myself I couldn’t until I have reduced my stash. That means using up all the odd balls I have lying around seeing as lots of the stash is that. I’m going to make a rug out of strips from each oddment so that when I get in and out of bed, I don’t get cold feet on the laminate floor. That should take up quite a few balls and leave me with some space in the stash box 🙂 I’ve got a couple of tops lined up too – the leftovers vest, a white lies vest, and a Rowan vest if I can ever get my boobs small enough to fit into it!
Anyway, that is most definitely enough to go on for now (plus there are loads of wishes in Rowan 37 to dream of!). Maybe I’ll finish something else soon.
Dave phoned up, and he is still in work 🙁 On a Saturday it is at least time and a half, but this is above and beyond the call of duty. We’ll have a takeaway tonight, but I suspect that he won’t be up to watching much film wise. But lets see. If he comes home that will be enough for now!
