Expending effort.

Despite evidence to the contrary, I have been knitting. I finished a pair of knee socks (hoping to take pictures soon), and have started another Christmas present. I got the first shipment of the Wollmeise sock club, and wasn’t sure what to do with the skeins – they’re too pretty to be socks, I thought. I’m using the green skein (box elder), to make a lace ribbon scarf for a coworker, with stunning results. Since this weekend has been a gaming weekend, I’ve gotten a lot done on it. Next, I have to work on socks for my niece and a friend.

Activity!

It’s been an active sort of weekend. I ordered a karinui from Japan (an unfinished kimono) early last week, which arrived on Saturday. It’s everything I hoped it would be, and is going to take a moderate amount of work to complete. I suspect I’ll be posting pictures next weekend when I begin work on it. I’m very excited!

In knitting news, I’ve been working on all my WIPs. I finished Christy (pics forthcoming), and have made progress on the very, very tall socks. Also, just this afternoon, I received an email from Claudia (of Wollmeise fame) saying that I’ve gotten into her sock club! Now I just have to find the money…
