i am back in tech.
i am working on #4 out of 5 in the big spring tour de force that is my working life. come mid may i am going to pass out for an entire week. during that week or break, i will only work at the shop. and clean my apartment top to bottom. and sleep. and knit. i have some crafty news.
1. i bought the yarn and needles to begin the baptism shawl for my future niece/nephew. this is a project jess knows i am making, so i am cool with sharing the details. we shall see if pictures go up. can't decide if i want to try to surprise her a little.
2. i knit a few rows on the cashmere scarf because it is simple an di could do it in a very dim theatre.
3. i knit a few rounds on the gathered pullover because i can knit that in complete darkness.
4. the cross stitch project i am currently working on is a warm-up to something bigger. the current is a set of very small (and too cute) winnie the pooh characters that will be for the new person's room. i have pooh, piglet, and eeyore finished. i started tigger and i will probably get him done by the end of the week. i need to learn how to make better french knots so i can really finish each of them (they need knots for eyes) and frame them for hanging. they are moving right along, however!
i think i will keep the bigger project a secret for now.
i hurt myself pretty badly at rehearsal last night. i even had to fill out accident report forms. i slipped in a puddle of water and fell into a chair sideways. my backside and lower back are nice and stiff and my shoulder/neck/arm are all manner of screwed up. boo.
advil is my friend. but beer actually makes it feel best.
