The jacket wasn't finished this weekend, but this cute little hat was! The 2 flowers are actually pins, so the wearer can wear whatever flower she feels like, or none at all if so inclined. Augh! I've been writing too many law related papers. Anyway... part of the jacket collar is done, and some seaming happened too this weekend. But I did discover that the sleeves were too short, so the cast off rows have been unraveled and are waiting for another inch or two. Maybe next weekend...

and here's the unblocked, unfinished, uncollared jacket... maybe this weekend. Or maybe not. There's lots going on.


Belated picture alert! Here's the body shot of the shrug.... and you can actually see the pin- it's really enamel, not rhinestones. :)

so scatterbrained

today I walked out of the house with a project- but the wrong one. It's a new project, so new in fact that I've only made the swatch, which would normally be ok, but I haven't washed and blocked the swatch, so starting the new project (a hat) will have to wait a day or two.
But that's ok- because I've got some reading to do.

Current WIP's
1. denimstyle jacket- needs blocking, seaming, a collar and more seaming. Yes, in that order
2. blue sock #1- I'm still in the gusset decreases, but it's so pretty!
3. new hat- coral colored, with a pink ribbon yarn flower

I really feel the need to spin too. Maybe I'll do a little tonight.

By the way- Sarah, I can't meet tonight, because there is a community meeting for the Family Justice Center(a new center meant to create access to many agencies for domestic violence victims in one building).

7pm at the Hesburgh auditorium if anyone else is interested- this is a South Bend issue.

Sorry Melissa, but I've been in Aruba with my parents.... I miss it already (sigh)
I had a really great time there, mostly basking (I mean burning) in the sun, catching up on my Jurisprudence reading, snorkeling, and even a little windsurfing :) don't you hate me now?

of course, I got some knitting done... I'm all finished with the pieces of my latest Knitty sweater jacket- minus the collar and finishing. I'll post a few pictures when I get back to the Bend. I also turned the heel on my first lacy sock. I'm knitting lacy socks on size 1's. Unfortunately, I can only work on it a few hours at a time, because my eyes start swimming.

Sarah and E- I'll see you both at the next Tuesday... which is not this upcoming week, but the following- right? Maybe I'll see you at the Sunday meeting first though.

Stephanie- thanks for the encouragement- they both made it in on time, and both were coherent. I'm one of those people who procrastinate for a while, and then want to edit the paper 5-10 times, so I generally get a little crunched for time.

Melissa- here's your post! call me :)

hmm... it's been a little while since I last posted. Not a whole ton has been going on.
my sister loved the shrug...

I've also started 2 new knitting projects. One is a lace sock (for ME!)... on a pair of size 1's! The other is a knitty jacket- also for me

But really, I have 2 papers due this week- so that's what I'm trying to concentrate on. I'll try to publish a picture or two later.
