What Have I Been Up To?

So I have dramatically slow down on blogging lately. I couldn’t really justified blogging when I should be doing research. But tonight, I’m taking a little time off so I can update everyone on what I’m up to and the progress of some knitting.

Last weekend, Knelley, Acambras, Costumchick, JennM and I went over to Anphoe‘s house for some unofficial SnB get together. We had SO MUCH FUN! We all got there around 6pm and didn’t leave till 2am!!! We all brought food as well and everything was delicious!

Even long after the get together, I would still think about all the conversation we had and laugh to myself.

On the knitting front, I started knitting Lola Curly the Pig for my Cocoa Swap swapee as her “Bust the Winter Blahs Buddy”. I hope she’ll like it. I used the yarn my friend who’s family owns a yarn mill’s yarn. She gave me the yarn when I was thinking of making my own wedding gown. Of course, I didn’t end up doing it so now I have 30 balls of the yarn sitting around. It turned out to be a great yarn for this project!

Actually, I’ve made some more progress since this picture was taken – I have finished the body while at Suzy’s last night and I made the four feet today during training.

And while we are on Schaefer, I got my Schaefer Yarn payment for the two projects I made for them:

4 skeins of Andrea – 2 in Julia Child and 2 in Margo Jones, and 1 skein of Lola in green.

Aren’t the color gorgeous? I will be using them for shawls, but I haven’t decided on patterns yet.

Along with the payment, I got the next model knitting project as well. And I have to say I am super excited for this project ever since I got the pattern from Laura.

It’s the Undulating Waves Scarf by Laura Nelkin. It has beads in it and the whole thing is just beautiful. I can’t wait to start this project.

And just to finish up this post, I have some random pictures to show you:

This is Andes Peppermint Crunch chocolate. This picture is for missburrows, all you Choconots and Frenemies out there! (it’s okay if you don’t know what these means… But if you do, mmm.. Chocolate!) I can’t get enough of these chocolate patties 🙂

This picture is for Archiknist. My Peru llama/alpaca hangs out with me at work. He stands on top of my monitor and is one of the things that makes me smiles when I am stressed at work.

Stay tuned for my hot cocoa week #2 questions and some yarn from NYC!

  1. The payment yarn are so yummy!!!

    I can prove that Peru llama/alpaca is really at Jenn’s desk at work. It’s just so cute, be aware Jenn, it may disappear someday.
