It's Thursday Already?

How did that happen? This week is just flying by. Work has been busy, but mostly enjoyable. High school students are generally a lot of fun to work with.

I do try to get in a little knitting before and after work, and this has allowed me to finish one of my Knitvent projects and start another. Here is my completed Land of Sweets cowl, made from left-over sock yarn and a ball of KnitPicks Hawthorne:
 I have to admit that I am very pleased with it. I will try to get Keith to take picture of me wearing it this weekend.

I immediately cast on another Knitvent project, the Tchaikovsky Hat in a skein of Sun Valley Fibers DK that I've had for a couple years. 
It seems like it is going to go fast, and will go in the gift bin. I rarely wear green, even though I like it. I mean, who doesn't like green? 

At any rate, I am so glad that I joined Knitvent, and I won't be surprised if I end up knitting all six projects in the next year.

For now, I'm looking forward to the weekend, but also kind of dreading it. Two holiday parties! This requires more energy than I usually have during the school year. I'm determined to make them both. After that, things will calm down and I'm hoping for a restful break over the holidays.

    I consider myself very social and we had 2 parties in one day this week. Fireman and I were silent for the next day just recovering from the fun energy. I wouldnt have missed either gathering though!

  9. Such a pretty cowl! Hope your weekend has been great? I'm just not wondering about Thursday; I'm wondering how it could possible be almost 2018!

  10. Oh, this cowl turned out so beautifully! Do you like the length? I'd like to knit one, but I think I might make it a little shorter. Would that work? Hope the weekend went OK! P.S. Did you see the profile of Susan B. Anderson in the Isthmus? I miss Madison so much!
