Visible Street! and Liquid Water!
(Not for much longer, admittedly:)
Yes, it got up to the freezing (or melting) mark today, which is a warm day when you’ve already acclimated to winter (long before the official start of winter, of course, but we’re used to that). But I didn’t leave work as early as I hoped; it was early-ish, about 4:25 pm, but this time of year, at this latitude in the Northern Hemisphere, sunset is . . . 4:29 pm.
This is the former mutant paramecium scarf .
I’m going to fringe-ify it a bit more, and then it’s a present for a gift exchange at work tomorrow.
And here are the black fingerless mitts, now kept safely away from the scissors:
And a new fingerless mitt for someone else (you see, I am constrained by what I can knit in front of certain people, so need multiple projects so that I can knit at all possible times) :
And a new WIP since last weekend, a felted bag-to-be, commissioned by an acquaintance for her daughter.
I overdyed the yarn dark green in one area, and engineered the size of the bag, specifically to get the dark green spirals going up the side. I think I’m going to wish I had more yarn, though. Hmm. We will soon see.
And I forgot to take a picture of the Pioneer Braid Scarf, to finish which I did splice in a few more yards of yarn from a second skein of Twisted yarn (Duchess yarn in the Rodney colorway). There, I think that accounts for all my WIPs from last week, plus some, other than the “mutant elf Ravelry cap”, which will wait until after the holidays (though I started playing around with my idea for it, with the second skein of the yarn I used for the Pioneer Braid Scarf. Not that I should be experimenting with it right now. . . .too much to do. . .)
Ah, well, the panic hasn’t set in. At least I don’t work this weekend! And I’d hate to break the tradition of wrapping presents on Christmas Eve, after all. Ha.
Obnoxious runny nose head cold happening (I think I got it from Lisa — you know how nasty those computer viruses can be!), my work colleague off all week from today, Church stuff (and ‘liturgical’ knitting group!) tomorrow night, choir concert Thursday night, and stealth knitting to do; so look for me around Friday, perhaps! One can only hope.
