2. I got this for Christmas! The intern I am teaching to knit spent her downtime during the run of the show crocheting scarves for all of us!! How cool is that?! Mine is a very very soft Moda Dea fuzzy yarn. It's so pretty and warm, I love it! Unfortunately, said intern will not be with us next semester (something about wanting to get married in March. I mean, really, planning your wedding and honeymoon, hanging out with us in the office and backstage, what kind of choice is that? =) ) but we're planting seeds for the summer. I gave her one of my learning to knit books so she can expand a little more if she wants while she's away.
3. Two pairs of clogs are done and felted. These are both men's large size. Getting inspected by the supervisor:And post felting (note the supervisor still inspecting)
The cuffs on the green ones turned out very differently. I'm not quite sure why. Also, the green ones felted a lot faster than the gray ones, so the grey ones are slightly bigger still. Also, one of Mom's clogs is done:
I love the colors of these (I'm sure you're all shocked). The second one is in my lap waiting for me to figure out how I ended up with the wrong number of stitches on the sole already. I want to get these done tonight so I can felt them in the morning and probably dry them with a hair dryer or something before my flight. I hope the winter storms going through Colorado and all that don't mess up the schedule too badly, but it's not like there's much I can do about it.
Oh, and I did pick up some Patons SWS. My other intern got me fondling it and after checking out various reviews of it, I picked up two skeins in Natural Denim (another shock, huh?). I have to admit it is extremely soft. I started an entrelac scarf with it, then frogged it. Maybe a hat. Dunno yet. Gotta get this clog done first!
Flying home tomorrow! Can't wait for Christmas! I love my family, but on the other hand I can't wait to get back home already. I'm excited about the next semester, I found a taekwondo studio that teaches beginning adult classes starting Jan. 2 (I've always wanted to learn, and it's good practical exercise!), and AF guy is going to come down for a few days while we're both on break. And I already miss my kitty and I haven't even dropped him off yet! He gets mucho snuggles tonight!
