this & that

Just now made another mistake on Grain. I dropped a yo instead of knitting it I think? In any case, everything’s secure, just odd looking in a spot. Won’t even notice in the fo.

Got some stitch markers from ChiaoGoo that are making things much easier where I’m using them. Proper tool for the proper job. You wouldn’t think a stitch marker would make much of a difference but it really eliminates a friction point.

I got my latest purchase from Knitivity today. It’s gorgeous as always. Pictures to come.

I got some Scarfie this week as well and thought I’d picked a pattern for it but changed my mind when I actually started working it up. So that can be stash for a bit while I work on other things.

I’ve been doing a lot of gaming this week. I think my hands appreciate being asked to do something else.

And there’s even more going on but that seems like a good list!

Last Burst of Summer

It was 87 degrees today! Not weather for a lap full of crochet. Looks like it will be cooling down into deeper fall over the next week, which delights me. It’s been a beautiful summer but I’m ready for things to get cozy.

With the warmth the last couple of days there’s no crochet progress to report, but I did plan out another project and order the yarn. It’s for someone close to me so I feel I should be cagey about it, but if all goes as planned it should be fantastic.

What I have been doing is gaming. My other huge hobby is video games, and most of the time it’s The Elder Scrolls Online. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s an MMO and like all MMOs it’s a crazy time sink. I have to be careful of it as there’s a ton to do and it’s easy to let hours pass. Instead of cleaning my house today I decorated one of my virtual ones. It does look amazing however.

As I really get back in the crochet groove, though, I find I have less and less time for it. The game can’t compete with the rhythm of the stitches and the fabric growing under my hands. It’s a kind of satisfaction that you can’t really explain, and I can’t express how glad I am that I picked it back up.
