Well, heading into Wednesday, anyway 😉 Of the three things I have going right now, I haven’t touched the entrelac kerchief this week, though I plan to do at least a bit over the next couple of days.

My favorite LYS, Far North Yarn Company, had a blowout sale for solstice (this is a big deal in Alaska), that carried on until yesterday. A major feature of the sale was $1 magazines and $5 books.

This week was mostly a blur. It consisted of a whirlwind work trip to Seattle, in which I got an awful lot of work done, and not a lot of sleep. But in between work tasks, I did finish the two kits I took with me (if you ignore the maybe hour of knitting I… Continue reading Quick Travel Knits
I’m on a trip for work right now, so not getting a lot of knitting done, and none at all on my regularly scheduled projects. There is a pretty nice pool at the hotel where I am staying, so it’s a little bit of a pity I didn’t bring Call of the Siren, as I… Continue reading Work Trip

The Shape of Water, if you aren’t familiar with it, is a modern retelling of the Revenge of the Creature, which is a… Continue reading The Knit Aquatic

The launch special introducing the books and the series concept just aired. Meredith Viera hosts the series, which is basically about how awesome… Continue reading Great American Read & Glenesk
Today was a very knitty day! DH and I had a few errands to run today, just generally getting some tasks done. We did stop for lunch at Bombay Deluxe, our local Indian restaurant, where I got a little public knitting in before having some very tasty matar paneer. The project is an entrelac kercheif… Continue reading Knitting In Public and Otherwise
