Feeling at loose ends

Running

The weather has been slightly better for running this past week since we’ve had tons of thunderstorms.  The t-storms aren’t so good for running, but if you time a run in between them, then it’s fantastic!  The temps are perfect for running, you might get a wee bit of gentle raindrops to help cool you down & usually the breeze is wonderful.  I’ve been able to sneak in a few short runs the past week – running at 11am, even!  Hope to sneak in another short one today, but it’s going to very busy, trying to get ready for camping!

Knitting

Whew!  Ok, I’ve gotten several small projects out of the way for the HPKCHC July classes.  YAY!  I’ve done a bookmark, a couple amigurumi, a set of coasters, a scarf & a pair of wrist warmers.  I have Astronomy and Herbology left yet – I know what I’m making for both of those, will be tackling them in the next few days.

I got SO bored with the Blue Jeans Lace Leaf Shawl.  It’s a really easy pattern, quick to memorize, but then becomes nearly mindless to knit.  I’ve still got 4 weeks left to finish it, of course.  I know I’ll finish it – but the original plan was to knit until I run out of yarn.  As big as it is already on the first skein, I’m thinking it might be finished when I’m done with this skein!  There’s no way I’ll make it through all 3 skeins – plus that would give me a shawl that would be humongous even for Hagrid!  LOL

Feeling at loose ends

So we have all become addicted to Doctor Who…  and feeling a bit impatient now that we’re stuck waiting for new shows.  I’ve found several books on eBay for real cheap, so that will help a bit.  Only one has arrived so far, though, so I’m trying to save that for the camping trip.  In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit lost without having something more substantial to feed the renewed addiction.  he he he

In the course of taking photos of the projects for HPKCHC, I found that my Chocolate Swirl Allamanda had a few blooms with raindrops sitting on the petals.  And before I knew it, I was snapping shots of them…  something I’ve seen my father do all my life!  He’s always taking photos of flowers, trees, animals, birds…  all the bounty in nature.  But one thing has always remained constant – up close shots of flowers.  After I saw how nice the shots turned out, I emailed one to him & told him he was wearing off on me.  LOL

Today’s Ravelry Search

This one is for you, MiniPurlz.  ;)  Knock yourself out, pancake-less one (I can call you that again now that you’ve made up that batch I sent you!).   Oh yeah – HERE – an awesomely sweet drawing for you.  ;)  It is so fantastic that people have been nicking it for their own purposes, so the artist had to watermark it.  A serious shame, that is.

As always, click a picture to view the pattern page, as none of these are mine.

I had to include a picture of this one, though you cannot get the pattern anymore.  The designer became somewhat famous over the whole debacle - but suffice to say, shes done a super job with all her Doctor Who patterns!
