And for knitting:
At my parents' house last weekend, finished a hat and headband.
Nice, soft, fuzzy hat - definitely man-sized. Too big for my head!
I am really liking my Calorimetry. Really.
Finished the ribbing on the bottom of the sweater. I really like it, as does Zuzu.
Sweater, sans sleeves (and collar)
This is MY sweater! Don't try to take it - my laser beams will get you!
Left my size 8 circular needle at my parents' house, so I can't work on the sleeves until I get it back. Planned on picking up a sleeve on Tuesday afternoon, but realized that the needle was missing, so started another hat. It's made of the yarn that I brought for the HS girls (they loved it), and it is growing on me the more I work with it. I doubt that I could pull off these colors, but they remind me of the Muppets. What do you think?
Anyway, as I do not have my sweater to fill my suddenly empty evenings, I started Firebird. It's a lovely creation designed by the Tsarina of Tsocks, and definitely takes a lot of attention. I am learning new techniques, one of which is how to work on size 0 needles. (Also learned the Turkish cast-on, and look forward to using it again.) Look closely; there is a lot of detail.
Well, I need this to be quick, as I want to get back to the Firebird. Hope you enjoy the pictures/progress report. (And Zuzu's tongue.)
