Friday Update

<p>Well hello – welcome to Friday :o)</p><p>&#160;So far this week I’ve managed to work on the Wyvern sockage and CeCe.&#160; And spinning, a little bit.</p><p><a href="uploads/Photos/DSCF3371.JPG"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/DSCF3371.serendipityThumb.JPG" alt="" /></a>The Wyverns are making good progress.&#160; I broke them up and am knitting them one at a time – it moves along much faster that way.&#160; I completed most of the one on the right while watching The Wizard of Oz on TMC last week.<a href="uploads/Photos/DSCF3376.JPG"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; float: right; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/DSCF3376.serendipityThumb.JPG" alt="" /></a></p><p>I picked up CeCe again last night and worked a few rows.&#160; I think that I managed to fix where I screwed up the pattern – or&#160; at least fudged it enough so that when I block it, the mistake will only be noticeable to me. ;o)&#160; </p><p><a href="uploads/Photos/DSCF3377.JPG"><img width="131" height="175" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/DSCF3377.serendipityThumb.JPG" alt="" /></a>I also pulled out the French Market Bag that I started while we were at the car show over Father’s Day weekend.&#160; Since this is mind-numbing stockinette in the round at this point it will be good car knitting and knitting group knitting.&#160; I’m considering doubling up on the yarn and going up a few needle sizes at this point.&#160; Since I’m still towards the bottom it won’t be as noticeable and hopefully it’ll be done faster that way.<br /></p><p>That wraps up the knitting portion of our program – now it’s on to the spinning!</p><p>Which is pretty boring this week.&#160; So boring, in fact, that my camera refused to photograph it.&#160; I’m spinning the ‘Flames’ Grafton batt which itself isn’t boring, it’s actually pretty cool how the colors are coming together.&#160; Honestly<a href="uploads/Photos/07-08-06003a.jpg"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; float: right; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/07-08-06003a.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a> though, how many photos do you guys want to see of singles on the bobbin?&#160; ;o)</p><p>I did get my plastic storage bobbins from Webs and my electric bobbin winder off of Ebay this week so THAT was pretty exciting.&#160; Do you guys have any idea how <em>fast</em> these suckers are?!?&#160; Amazingly fast.&#160; So fast that they can get a teenager to look away from the television.&#160; I know, I was pretty impressed, too.</p><p>For ‘Alongs’ this week I’ve signed up for</p><p><a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1724&amp;entry_id=232" title="http://clothesknit.com/?page_id=386" onmouseover="window.status=’http://clothesknit.com/?page_id=386′;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"><img width="189" height="154" align="middle" alt="yarnaboardstamp.jpg" src="uploads/Buttons/yarnaboardstamp.jpg" /></a><br /></p><p>the ‘Fiber Aboard’ swap.&#160; This looks pretty cool, I can’t wait!</p><p>I think that about wraps it up this week – it’s been a pretty stressful one.&#160; Tomorrow is a Big Day but I’m not going to let you know what that means until…well, until tomorrow!&#160; (and if you know what tomorrow will bring – DON’T say it!&#160; ;o)&#160; )</p><p>One more thing – a great big THANK YOU to everyone for your complements on my plying, they are much appreciated :o)&#160;</p><p><em><span title="Edited To Add" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">ETA</span>:&#160; Apparently my site was down for part of the day so I’m republishing this…you’d think that if your hosting company were upgrading stuff they’d check to see if they <span title="F*cked Up Beyond All Recognition" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">FUBAR</span>’d their clients….&#160;</em></p>
