WIP: April Showers in January


The first cast on of 2013 is a cowl.  It will be worked without hurry - in between other knitting projects and spinning practices (aha!, that is another post I guess). 


I'm using lace yarn from Pagewood Farms. One skein of Willow Creek provides for 1,350 yards of yummy superwash merino! A great buy if you need a nice lace yarn and a bump in the Eat.Sleep.Knit yarnathon.


My first week at the new position wasn't as bad as I expected. Still, there was a share of stress as I tried to work on my previous assignments while training on my new responsibilities. By last Thursday I thought my brain was about to explode. To my surprise, and that of my co-workers, it didn't. Phew.

Knitting blogs have provided to be an excellent distraction. This little space also helps me stay out of trouble. I'm trying to post more frequently... when someone has a good idea, I’m game to try it.

It's Wednesday and therefore I'm WIPing along with Tamis Amis.
