I feel like I don't have a lot to show you this week. I haven't been getting much knitting done lately. Life has been been busier than usual is actual feeling a little out of control. I think that coupled with some warmer weather has caused me to lose some of my knitting mojo.
Fortunately, I did get some time to knit to and from Edmonton for the (amazingly awesome) U2 concert last week. It was a 3 hour trip each way (although I slept half of the way there - what a waste!).
I have finished the second sleeve on my Ode to Hedwig. It is all ready to be attached for the yoked top & OWLS! But, I seem to have stalled on it now. It's at a point where it's kind of huge to haul around, I need time when I can concentrate on the next step, it's a bulky wool sweater and it's June... hmmm, what other excuses can I justify myself with?
I have also made further strides with Twisted (my hat using the pattern Tinker). The cabling was driving me nuts but I have figured out how to do the cables without a cable needle (not sure if I am doing it in a "official" manner but I have made up a way that seems to be working fine) and now it is moving along quite nicely. I'm a little worried it's going to be on the small side but I have hope for blocking.
I have all these lovely projects with lovely wool lined up to go and I'm not really feeling motivated to do any of them. Instead, I've decided to make Doodlebug a cotton sun hat. I'm going to give Dear Liza a go.
Tomorrow the kids and I are off to Vancouver to see my parents for a week. The only bright side to the Canuck's horrifying loss on Monday is that I will be in town for Game 5 (of course my parents have already given their tickets to my brother, but we're not talking about that). I'm just excited to go down to our local pub and soak up some of the atmosphere!
