Missing Knit Night

Sorry, guys, I won’t be going to knit night tonight.  I’ve been sick with a miserable head cold for the past few days, and I need to rest up – I’ve got to work tomorrow night and Friday.  So I’m drinking lots of nice hot tea and eating lots of soup.

Hopefully I’ll  return next week.  Classes at school also start next week, and I am hoping to resume regular attendance of the knitting circle.  (I always regularly attend school!)

Hey, I also got my new computer!  I’m using it right now.  It’s RED!!!!  I’m still finding my way around Vista, and our Internet connection hasn’t been consistent (again!), so there’s been those kinds of frustrations.  But overall I am happy with my new machine.

On the knitting front, I finished the Bounce beret that I made for my mother.  It was too big for her, and she really didn’t appreciate the style.  So I showed her the Banana Republic Knockoff Hat and she said she liked it.  I bought the yarn, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, in the Fig colorway.  I am almost finished with the hat, I just need to attach a button to the brim.  I bought enough yarn to make a matching Fourteen neck warmer for her.

I am also finished knitting my sister’s Twenty-two (same pattern as Fourteen but made with Twenty-two stitches).  I just need to weave in the ends and sew the buttons on the scarf.  When I told her I was going to make a hat to match, she told me she wouldn’t wear it, that she never wears hats.  So I think I am going to make her a Calorimetry instead.  Hopefully she will wear that!

I finished my Kew socks, they’re washed and ready to model.  So I owe Ravelry pictures of Kew, Bounce, the Banana Republic Knockoff, mom’s Fourteen, sis’s Twenty-two, and better pictures of Pink.  That’s a pretty tall order!
