This weekend, we went to Cedar Point with some of Matt’s friends. It was a lot of fun, but man was I sore the next day from all the walking! We went up Friday afternoon after picking up Matt’s brother. Stayed in a hotel Friday and Saturday night, then came home Sunday. The drive wasn’t too bad and I got a lot of knitting done. I uploaded pictures to Flickr from the day spent at the park. You can see them here.
On the car ride, I stuck to knitting on Starlight. I’ve now reknit past the point I had to rip out from the weekend before last.
While at the park, I knit while waiting in line and when I sat out a few of the coasters. I’m a few rows away from finishing the first Midsummer Night’s Dream sock!
Oh! I actually finished something last week. I started a garter stitch scarf the day I had back surgery. I put it aside for a while, but would knit a row here or there. After moving, I didn’t work on it much. I decided a few weeks ago it was time to get it back out and get it finished. I knit just a few rows every day until I ran out of yarn. This is the first garter stitch scarf I’ve made! I really like it. I have 2 more skeins of this yarn and I think I’ll make a hat and gloves to go with it.
Pattern: Garter Stitch Scarf (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: April 2, 2009
Completed: September 24, 2009
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Sunrise, 1 skein
Needles: US 7 bamboo circular
Notes: I cast on 25 stitches (I think) and knit until I ran out of yarn. The FO picture makes the yarn seem more orange then it is. The second picture below is a little more accurate in color.
This week is looking like it’ll be another busy one. At least the end of the fiscal year is almost over, so work should slow down a little (at least not be so super crazy). We’re having our housewarming/birthday party (for Matt and I since both our birthdays are this month) this Saturday and all this week we’re doing preparations for that – getting food, cleaning things up, planning everything out and so on. I think things will calm down at home after this weekend. The last two months we’ve been busy almost every weekend, so I’m looking forward to the slow down. We’ll have one three day weekend to hang out and do nothing, then the on the 15th I’ll be heading out to DC for Rhinebeck on the 17th. I’ll be staying with Laura in DC, then heading up to stay with her friends in NYC Friday, Rhinebeck on Saturday, back to DC Sunday, then back home Monday. I’m really looking forward to it!! This will be my first time going to Rhinebeck. Maybe I’ll see you there! 🙂 Now I just need to get Starlight finished so I can stop stressing about having it done on time.
