Vacation Knitting and b-day presents.

25 11 2007

So a decent bit of exciting-ness has happened in the last 10 days since I’ve posted.  Mostly my birthday and we traveled down to South Carolina to visit family for the holidays.

My birthday fell on the day before Thanksgiving this year, and since I wouldn’t see the BF on my birthday, he gave me my gift last Saturday.CMF roving.

Roving!  To be more specific it’s Crown Mountain Farm’s Superwash Merino roving.  In fact these are two of the colors that were discontinued back in October (or was it September?) when Teyani hurt her hand and had to stop dyeing.  Apparently I looked at the website enough when my BF was around that he decided it would make a good b-day gift.  The color on the left is Pink Cadillac and the one on the right is Wild Thing.  I totally can’t wait to spin this up and yes.. I’m totally keeping him forever.

Yarn: Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in Crush. (Left overs from the garter st. gloves)

Pattern: Cast on 30 stitches using Judy’s Magic Cast on.  Knit in the round for awhile, throw in some patterning to make things exciting, cast off.

Still… shouldn’t be too bad.  I took my math homework with me on vacation and decided to do the stuff for seminar first.  I spent a whole day working on it and haven’t finished ANYTHING.  Sooooooo now you guys know why I won’t be around at all this week.  I’ve got 4 project/papers/homework things due this week… looks like I’ll be back NEXT weekend if I survive.  😉
