New Word and New Project

Staying inside hunkered down and knitting rather than going out in the cold? We now have a word for that. The husband of someone on Ravelry described her as 'hiberknitting'. I like it. 

This morning I carded the rest of the white wool I'm working on - 2 skeins' worth, which means I should be done tomorrow, since my target is 1 skein per day. 

The rest of my projects, I'm feeling a little less enthusiastic about, it seems. I settled down after supper last night to do some work on the shawl in progress, and did a few rows, but it really wasn't holding me. The rows are getting long, and there are no real changes to the 4-row repeat until I get to the border.

I didn't want to work on my cross-stitch. I didn't want to sew on the quilt square. I didn't want to get into picking or carding. All this work to do and nothing I wanted to do. Really, rather ridiculous. Something new and exciting was clearly indicated. And it's been over a year since I knit anything for me. So I pulled out the skein of sock yarn I bought at Rhinebeck 2014 from Hudson Valley Sheep And Wool Company, rolled it into a ball, and surfed on Ravelry for a bit. I'm going to make me a pair of Hypnosis socks. 

But I think I will do toe-up instead of top-down, and make them a bit longer in the leg. That should keep me entertained for a while!

I've rolex replica sale a few evaluate the actual Oceanis to a couple various wrist watches, however I truly obtain a Kobold Close off as well as a tag heuer replica uk really feel in the watch. In the event that both of these wrist watches had been in order to partner, the actual Anstead Oceanis will be their own children (I'm not really stating which was rolex replica, proprietor associated with anstead fake Omega watches, purpose with this particular design). It's hard to make a watch nowadays that won't possess features associated with other people, as well as past which, the actual Oceanis isn't the respect or even duplicate associated with anyone watch possibly.
