Sorry for the complete lack of knitting content lately – my life has been just plain crazy between my ‘at home’ clients (people I do bookkeeping for from my home office) and my ‘office job’ along with all the assorted responsibilities that come along with having a teenager (for example: H: “mom, can I go online?” Me: “It is 6pm, no, you may not go online until 8pm” H: “this SUCKS” Me: “tell me about it – maybe you could *insert parental suggestion to do something like…hmmm..YOUR CHORES…or something that doesn’t involve staring at a box with flickering lights*” H: “That’s just stupid” Me: “*general muttering about birth control and how having a teen is an awesome way to not want any more teens while eyeing the liquor cabinet*” – that is a pared down version but four or more conversations like this every evening can really take up some time).
Anyway, lookie here:
I made…lace :o) That is the beginning of Madli and it is a bit longer now, I’m halfway through my first ‘center’ repeat and I know this is taking forever but…see the above paragraph. I can’t knit lace when I’m explaining the obvious.
And here is my very first piece of stranded/two color knitting:
This is also bigger now – I’m well into the fifth repeat out of six repeats. This is simple enough so I can work on it while…well, explaining the obvious. That’s my job now, didja hear?
