WIP Wednesday: Apparently it is Still Wednesday

Hi everyone!

I am sorry to report that the faithful laptop, well, failed me. Thankfully I am borrowing notepad from a friend. I miss the mouse very much. The part I need to fix it is probably arriving tomorrow, and I will see if there is any hope for it. It is bad news when my FIL is pushing hard to retire it. The laptop entered it's 9th year the 5th of July. Yes, I know my computer's birthday. More like I am counting down on the decade of despair AKA how long I have been in Indiana.

So, new episode Saturday, or I wasted 50 bucks and I need to buy a new laptop. Stay tuned.

I started a new project yesterday. I worked on it as the data was flying by at work. I got home, ripped it all out and restarted.

Sorry for the special webcam photo. I am nearly done with the first pattern repeat on the leg. The yarn is Vesper Self Striping in the Sweet Water colorway, and the pattern is Ashton Windows, by the lovely Karen of Sock Knitters. This is my second pair for the KAL I am hosting. So I was doing an hourglass rib, and it was really fiddlely with the size 0 hiya-hiyas  so I just subbed in a 2x1 rib and I am really digging it. The cable lace pattern on the leg is fun.

I've missed the WIP Wedneday crew, and without a mouse I am truly link challenged. Copy paste is an ordeal.

Take care guys!

Episode 4: Crazy Juice

The Evenstar is done! The romney is done!

Summer Blooms and the Gnomespun are started!

And I ponder about several different things.

What I forgot to mention were

a.) the Evenstar is a part of 3 KALs not 2. Wollmeise for all Seasons Evenstar KAL, Wollmeise for all Seasons 12 Skein KAL, and The Knit Girllls Stash Dash (so is the Romney)

b.) I am on Team Must Stash for Tour de Fleece.

c.) question: should I start a ravelry group for the podcast?

Obviously I am rubbish at name dropping.

That's all for now, take care guys
