What's On The Needles: April 2009



Had a pretty non-existent weekend. Worked a conference until 10:30 Friday night and Noon until 9:30 PM Saturday. Thankfully, I had Sunday off, but was so wiped that I've done next to nothing.

Did made it up bt 10:30 to get in a little gardening before tuckering out. Though I was only able to plant my dahlias and maywood lily tree. Still have a LOT more to go!

I did use my time wisely on Saturday and knit this whole half a scarf in moss stitch while our attendees were in session. That's a lot of knitting - at least a good 3-4 hours worth!! Even found a few fellow knitters while I was at it. :)

Oooh, nice job, I LOVE that yarn!!! I was at the zoo the other day and saw the coolest thing and thought of you and your knitting. We were walking behind a building where there was a picnic table and several employees having lunch. I spotted a woman with a very sporty water bottle covered with a hand knitted bottle cooler. It was the coolest thing I've ever scene. I wanted to stop and ask her about it but felt I didn't want to disturb her PLUS Little Buddy was entering the "over due for a nap" zone. Maybe you could make a scarf and stitch up 2 sides? Or something? I dunno but this would be very handy for summer time, only maybe tricky as to what type of yarn would work best with the condensation? Ever see this?

I've seen this before - don't have the pattern though - http://www.folksy.com/items/29168-Bright-Red-Coffee-Cup-Cozy-Sling?shop=yes - its for a coffee cup. I think it would be knit in the round. I just might be able to figure one out for you. :)

I feel sorry for you that your weekend was so stressful!

I love the weekends because, though I work, it's a time when I can relax.
