To BEE or not to BEE

As if to make up for lost knitting time this year I seem to be possessed to try several KALs at once. The newest one on the list is the Bee Shawl KAL. I have ordered the yarn and it is on the way! I'm waiting to see if they finish the stole pattern before I am ready to start but I thought it would make a nice holiday gift for my mom if the Pi shawl ends up looking too...matronly.

Fortunately all of the KALs have been rationalized into holiday gifts or things I pink sock. Of course you know what they say about rationalizations right......

Just as soon as I find the cord!

Somewhere in the mess that is called a house is my card reader. Once I find that beast I can get some photos updated.

Found a nice list of Triangular Shawls today. The best part about the list is the patterns are listed by yardage! Cool eh?

Okay at some point I just have to STOP!! I have been obsessed with gathering materials for new projects...not bad except that I already have too many WIP and too many little caches of projects hidden around the house. And yet I just can't stop!

I blame it on two things:
a) the number of fantastic and diverse KAL out on the net and

b) We are quickly approaching the beginning of Autumn (around the 1st weekend of August if you follow the Earth/Sun seasons) and so I think my body is going into 'harvesting' overdrive.

"Gather what you can before it becomes dark and dismal!

There is another theory and that is that I am over-compensating for the upcoming ABANDONMENT of my daughter as she heads off to college!

On top of it all I ripped out 2" of my Mystery Stole the other day. Sad, I know, but they mistake I am trying to correct would have haunted me!! Truly, it would.

Great idea for a great program

I was reading my email from the 'sockamaniac_sockalong' yahoo group and Ramona (aka - MezzoDiva the Operatic Knitaholic) has come up with a wonderful idea. She is participating in a Breast Cancer Walk and in exchange for a donation she is giving away a lovely sock pattern!

You can visit her website for more information and don't forget to donate!!!

I am finding it hard to believe that I haven't posted for almost a year!! Gasp!!!

Most of my attention has been on getting child #1 graduated and off to college (this fall), managing my astronomy podcast , family, and two Girl Scout troops. Well, things are beginning to settle down so maybe I can get back to knitting!

What better way than to join up with a knit-a-long (KAL) and sign up for a summer swap!

The KAL is none other than the Mystery Stole #3 and the summer swap is with my favorite group Knit the Classics! I have a great package all ready to ship for my selected swappie down in Magnolia Texas now off to the post office!
