I have been a little absent around these parts; but, I have been up to quite a bit. I weaved in the ends of the Sienna sweater, it's blocking. It's been blocking for 3 days. It should be dry tonight and I can finally get around to giving it the button treatment (and having a finished knit, everyone together now, "it's about time.").
I went to a conference for academic archivists over the weekend. Pretty local. Even though UConn is only 50 minutes away from me, I got lost and it took 2 hours to get home on Saturday. There was very little knittng time at the conference, so while I didn't get any knitting done, I got a cute little desk for Little Sir for $2.00 while I aimlessly drove circles around various hinterland locales of Connecticut. Even trade.
I even had some fiberlicious fun...
And I did some quilt planning, inspired by the blank canvas that is Little Sir's new toddler bed (the transition of which is getting better, by the way).
Speaking of blank canvas, I have contest winners... Using a random number generator (I love these things, no cutting of paper slips!), the comments of Kirsten and Fricklet's mom were selected. I will get in touch with you shortly for some coordination. Thank you all for your loser knit stories, it makes me feel just a little bit better about my sweater...which, I am sure, will be a loser-knit.
And lest you think there is no knitting happening around these parts...
It is Socktober, afterall.
So, what's doing with you?
