The next couple of weekends are proving to be insane.
This weekend I’m heading to NYC with Sharon and Jessica to putz around, check out the new purl shop, figure out what bridesmaid dress I want from j.crew for my cousin Erika’s wedding, and just generally enjoy each others company. These ladies are my closest friends I’ve made since moving to NJ and I could not say thank you to them enough.
The next weekend, my Ashbee (or Ashly) is coming from Pittsburgh for a 3 day weekend! We’ll spend Friday in NYC, Saturday in Philly, and Sunday probably in Princeton. It’s been over a year since I got to see Ash and I could not be more excited about this visit!
May 1st is Maryland Sheep and Wool. Sharon and I are taking that Friday off, driving to my parents house in PA, then leaving at o’dark thirty on Saturday morning to drive to MD. This will be my first trip to MDS&W, and my mission is Woolee Winder bobbins.
I think after that, I’ll finally have a moment to sit and breathe!
Enough about the running around, let’s talk knitting!
I’m currently working on Empoisonnée by Yarnissima.
I’m working my way up the leg of the first sock. Yes, it is a Wollmeise sock, 100% superwash merino sock yarn in the Single Malt color. I was a little unsure of it in the beginning but the color is just so rich and warm, I’m trying to hurry through the last 40 rows so I can start sock #2.
I’m also working on the Baby Chalice Blanket by Lykkefanten. I’m almost 3 repeats in out of 10 repeats. I have 3 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted multi in the Clara’s Garden colorway to use up so I’m knitting until I run out. Then I shall return to baby sweater land for my niece to be!
It’s strange knitting things on size 10 needles.
I hope to get this blanket to the half way point this weekend. Hopefully some train knitting will let me do that!
Tomorrow should yield a post about our trip to NYC! Stay tuned!
