More procrastination

I kinda feel bad...every so often, I get requests for my knitted Waldorf doll pattern and I don't have one...yet. It was one of those pick up your needles and knit until it looked right projects. I've been telling people that I'm going to write out the intructions one of these days.

It took me forever to write up the Sock Monkey pattern. I'm a procrastinator.

You know that commercial where the gorilla is jumping and beating up on a suitcase? It was to show how tough their luggage can be. Well, I feel like the suitcase...except I'm not as tough. I hate being sick. It's such a waste of time. Even my hair is achy.

Ravelympics - Cedar Leaf Shawlette

Well, the 2010 Winter Olympics is more or less over. Paralympics is still to come next week but the hype for that is much less than the regular Olympics. A shame, really. The stadium is now gearing up for the big opening ceremony next Friday. This year really does seem to fly by fast.

During all that I did managed to finish my Ravelympics project.

Pithy Details
Yarn - handspun Blue Faced Leicester, fibre dyed by Sweet Georgia (Fibre Club), colourway - Foumndation.
Pattern - Cedar Leaf Shawlette - Never Not Knitting

The yarn was probably thicker than what was recommended but it was perfect for what I wanted. A nice thick and soft shawlette. I added an extra row of eyelets before starting the leaf border to better separate the border and the shawl.

Would I knit this again? You betcha!! I'm looking forward to trying this pattern out in different yarns.
