I don’t have time for much of a post today, but thought I would share some images of my finished project – the Fallout Wrap! I finished it on Saturday, and I’m in love with it. It didn’t need blocking so after binding off and weaving the last few ends in, it was ready to wear! I’m now happily knitting away on a new shawl pattern which I will show you in the next couple of days, using a lovely colourway in Crazy Zauberball 100 yarn.
Christmas is getting so close now I can almost taste it in the air! To be honest, I’m not particularly excited about the actual day (I’m not religious so the day doesn’t mean much to me) but I AM excited about the three full weeks of holidays I will have over the Christmas/New Year break when our office closes. I haven’t had holidays since Christmas last year, so I’m really hanging out for some down time. Since we don’t have my partner’s daughter here until January, I decided that I wasn’t going to go to all the effort of putting our large Christmas tree up. So last night, I gathered some enthusiasm and decorated my ’emo’ tree, which of course is black with silver decorations. It’s only a two foot tree, so it’s sitting on my dining table. Very simple, but very us this year.
My fallout wrap is coming along very nicely! I’m so pleased with it, and it is still a joy to work on. I’ve discovered that while I have trouble crocheting on the bus, I can in fact knit to my heart’s content and not feel the urge to vomit into the hair of the poor person sitting in front of me. Now that the rows are getting quite long I can only manage two rows on the way into work (express bus) and three on the way home. I’ve got some lovely yarn on its way to me from the states, so I’m trying to get this wrap finished as soon as possible so I can start something new and exciting. I also can’t wait to wear it as it’s so soft and light.
