alright! let's do this thing!
#1: the hedgerow mitts (rav link) i'm knitting for my friend lisa with rachael's wonderful hand dyed yarn:
i'm still slogging along... the first is done, the second is maybe a quarter of the way done. i don't know what my problem with this project is, i love the pattern, i love the yarn, i'm loving the finished product... but i will do anything, *anything*, to avoid working on them. luckily my friend lisa is understanding, she told me, "if i wanted something fast i could have bought them at a store." thank you lisa.
#2: lily's granny square afghan. it's done. it's actually been done since march 3rd... it's just waiting for me to get my act together and take some pictures of it to share with you...
#3: secret things i can't talk about on the blog... there's the embroidery (that's still in progress) and some knitted goods for a swap on instagram (that were just finished but not mailed yet) but i can't report more on either until they've been gifted.
#4: cooper cowl (rav link) for little heather made with her fantastic amazing gorgeous handspun:
don't you just want to die?!? this yarn is such a dream... i started this on saturday and can't stop knitting it. **gorgeous!!**
#5: spring break baby!!! my family spent last week spring breaking it up in chicago. we had such a lovely time, we hit the field museum (my personal favorite), the adler planetarium, and the art institute, as well as just traipsing all over the city enjoying the sites!
brian indulged me and drove me by the home alone house on our way out of town (which wasn't really on the way and added probably 2hrs to our travel time, which is why it was an indulgence).
i was in kevin-heaven!!!
so there you go! i think we're all caught up now. with me anyways... what have y'all been up to?!?
