Today I thought I'd try to round up the projects I have on the needles (actively on the needles) for a quick report. We have mostly recovered from our trip, plus Rick's immediate follow-on trip to Minneapolis. (As an aside, it's been chilly enough here with this recent Canadian storm that we have snow on our local mountains, and when Rick got off the plane on Friday night, he said it was colder here than it was there. Today it's sunny as can be, and still hasn't reached 60 yet. No wonder I can't seem to grasp the fact that we're already well into April!)
First, an FO that I didn't get to show off before leaving for Yosemite (but which I wore quite a bit while there; I didn't even block it first - still haven't, in fact). It's my second Babushka.
On the needles I have the mitered blanket that I posted about last time. I've started the second square. This is my soothing knitting; I know how the squares go together now, so it's very mindless. I appreciate having at least one of those projects on the go at all times for when I need to go to a meeting without charts, or at the end of a long day when my brain is more mush than neuron. Another project like that is the Daybreak Shawl that I started some time ago (long enough ago that Ellen started and finished hers since then - sorry, Ellen!).
I also have a pair of socks OTN. I actually didn't for quite some time, which was kind of weird-feeling, to be honest. But having finished spinning up some sock yarn, I finally wound it up and cast on for the Rivendell socks that I've been eyeing for a while. I'm through the first chart on the first leg.
There it is. The plan for today is to get Younger Daughter packed up and ready to go for her big trip to NYC on Wednesday for a Montessori Model UN convention (eek!), do all the laundry (how does it accumulate so rapidly), and then to settle down with my knitting to watch Paris-Roubaix this afternoon (cobblestone and bikes, hooray!). Wish me luck!
