Well I finished a couple projects this week! You saw the photos of my sweater blocking on Tuesday, and it is now done blocking, the ends are woven in and I’m now wearing it!
- Finished Sweater!
As far as the “Snowmaggedon” goes, it wasn’t all that bad. People just hyped it up here in Omaha. Final snow totals put us around 6-7″ on Tuesday/Wednesday. It’s now warming up and should be in the 30s the next couple of days allowing things to melt off a bit. I did enjoy the day home. I wimped out and ended up spending the day knitting and watching TV. Every now and then you need a day like that to “reset” yourself.
In addition to adding the finishing touches on the sweater, I worked like mad on my socks. I really wanted them done before the end of January, and I came VERY close. I missed it by a day. I kitchenered the toes last night and did my happy dance for 2 perfectly matched socks that fit amazingly well!
Finished Stripey Socks!
If it wasn’t cold and I wasn’t wearing my snow boots today, I’d be sporting a new pair of socks to go along with the handknit sweater! Oh well, I will wear them sometime soon as they still need to be washed.
Speaking of washing, I won’t be washing anything until I get my tub fixed. Woke up this morning and had no cold water in the tub! I “think” I know what the problem is, and will bust out the tools to fix it tonight. I have a feeling I will be spending some quality time in the plumbing aisle of the local hardware store.
Stay warm out there!
