10 days…

The count down begins again.  I have only 10 days to knit before I have carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand.  I survived my non-knitting days when I had my right hand done, by reading blogs and many hours on Ravelry!

Well on New Years Day I found the Spring Shawl Surprice (surprise) kal and joined! 

I have now knit the first 12 rows 3 times!!!  (and it’s taken much coffee to do this!)

I love the yarn and love the color, but then I found the Secret of the Stole II kal (from the Nautical Knitter) and joined it too (it begins Jan 18 – the day after surgery – of course!)

So I made an executive decision to switch yarn on these projects.  I’m going to knit my SSS out of the dark red lace yarn I picked up at The Yarn Corner last year when I was getting ready for the MS3 (that I didn’t complete).  And I’m going to use the JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 in suede color for the SOTS ii.  I started the SSS again today and so far so good.  I’m back to row 8 and I’m loving the color.  If you are thinking about joining this KAL you better hurry, she is going to close it on Tuesday the 8th when she posts the 2nd clue.

Other than knitting on my now red shawl today, it started snowing and I have been praying all day that it continues and that we get so much snow that I can’t go to work tomorrow – then I can knit more!  I feel like a kid wanting to stay home from school!

I’ll post more pictures of my SSS in red later this week. 

Have a great week and pray for SNOW!!!

  1. Wow! I love your new look!
    Guess the snow chose not to stick around (I was in Seattle and missed it all!) but aren’t we supposed to get it every day? Maybe during the night, we will have a blizzard, then I can stay home from the little imp’s therapy appt. and we can knit together at our own houses. 🙂

  2. NO!!! the kids have to go to school tomorrow! The snow was beautiful but it can wait a couple more weeks before sticking around. Monday is also Girl Scouts so I’ll be traveling out your way in the afternoon. Your pics of the Lake are so inviting. I’m half way on my second Fuzzy Feet for my daughter. Will be fun to see how they look when done. toodles!

  3. I’d be knitting morning, noon, and night if I were you. Good Luck with the surgery. Hope to have you back in the knitting circle soon.
