I didn't touch Angelina today. I was instead working on Ene's Scarf until I realized that my size 3 needles are a little big. And then I switched to Charlottes's Web. And what happens. We come back from 2 and beat Colorado College 3-2.
I wonder how much of Charlotte's Web will be done by the time this weekend is over. I've been watching these games since noon today. Two more games tomorrow, starting at 2:30.

Next up!

Photos of some finished necklaces to come. Anglina sweater is on pause for the weekend. I was knitting it through the games all last weekend and we lost to Harvard. While our chances are slim to none in a game against a team that has a better offense (compared to none for us), I'm not taking any chances. I'm going with all superstitions!
So instead, I'm going to start Ene's Scarf from Scarf Styles and use some of the Misti Alpaca in a dark chocolate brown I had bought.

Been a while

So much to do, not enough time.

Here's something interesting I came across:

What kind of yarn are you?

You are Shetland Wool. You are a traditional sort who can sometimes be a little on the harsh side. Though you look delicate you are tough as nails and prone to intricacies. Despite your acerbic ways you are widely respected and even revered.
Take this quiz!

For those that know me, sounds kinda like me, eh?

Otherwise, in the works...
I must finish my double spiral for class tomorrow night, along with the cabochon I want on it.
I'm finishing the left front of Anglina and after that's done, I can start in on the lace edges. And currently, we are into March Madness but no basketball for me! Give me men's division 1 college hockey! whee! Cornell's in Green Bay and unfortunately, I can't go to the land of the cheeseheads.

Lace Knitting

For anyone interested in lace knitting, check out Eunny Knit!. She's starting a lace knitting tutorial. I found this blog while surfing the Knitting Olympics website. I fell in love with the frosted flowers shawl she made and the color of the yarn used was amazing!

When knitting comes in handy...

So, we're getting ready to move from the 8th floor to the 4th floor of our building at work. Today, we spent some time trying to figure out how to arrange furniture and if things would fit. My boss walks out and asks, "on the off either of you have a tape measurer?" I'm about to reply no when I realized..."Wait, I'm knitting to 11.5 inches on Angelina's sleeve so I keep breaking out the tape measurer which I keep with it in the bag." so out came the tape measurer and I think everyone was slightly amused that yes I do keep a 60 inch tape measurer on me.
