This week, I bought some new hanger for my closet which meant going through some of my clothes. Along the way I found some of the first sweater I knit. These were tucked away in the back of shelves, worn maybe once or twice. A dark green Boobholder, a cottonease Something Red... Are these ready to be frogged and recycled in to something else.
How many times have you frogged an older sweater or do you just keep them for sentimental reasons?
So I admit I have been slacking a bit when it comes to blogging. It has even crossed my mind to let it go on a more permenent basis. We will see how everything goes.
In the meantime, I have nearly finished my test knitting project. The number of FOs I have right now is concerning me. Wisp, a pair of socks, the granny square afghan and the never-ending Chevron Scarf.
Wisp is just about there, only a few more rows but the others are a long way from getting done. I guess 2 vacations and a test project have taken up all my extra time. My plan is side project monogamy. Work on the test project and finish Wisp on the side. Then move on to the next FO and work on that until it is done.
Disneyland and Vegas were great! We were waiting to get on a ride when the earthquake hit and as soon as we felt it, it was gone. Pretty quick compared to the quake we had in Seattle a few years ago. Needless to say, the ride were shut down for a few hours but being the Disney veterans we are,we took the time to eat, shop and head back to the hotel to rest.
Vegas with a 13yo was much different than usual. We didn't walk nearly as much since there were no gambling breaks to make a walk seem shorter. We saw the medievl show at Excaibur one night and went to the wedding the next. After that we watched the Belliago fountains, the Sirens show and explained to my step-son what the flyers the guys were handing out on the street were advertising. They really don't cover much up with a star.
Now we are getting ready to head out next week to Central Oregon for a week at Black Butte Ranch with family and friends. This year marks our 25th summer there. Scary! Now we are up to 17 people in 1 house which means we get loft and air matteress for a bedroom. Single people get to sleep on the floor in the room with the pool table.
Knitting-wise, I have been monogamous for about 2 weeks working on a test project. So that will most likely take up my time on vacation too.
Stitch n' Pitch is tomorrow night! I have my b-day money to bring ready for some impulse purchasing.
