"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

lazy in the heat

although it has cooled down considerably today (only mid 80s!!), it has been HOT HOT HOT here in Denver. Mid to upper 90s for over a week, and my air conditioning is broken. No wonder why there hasn't been a lot of knitting going on here. Of course, it figures that as soon as I think to borrow a fan from a friend (Preggo), it cools down. C'est la vie.

it also makes me lazy to paw through my stash and take pics of my recently acquired stuff. This weekend, i'll drag out the camera and show some pics of new stash enhancement and a coupla pics of LYS in Northern CO (Fort Collins and Loveland).

I also need to show the finished pic of the baby placket sweater out of LMKG (OSK, to some of you), that I knit with Classic Worsted Long Print (by Universal yarns). I'm currently working on a shop sample, the baby bolero from One Skein, using a skein of yarn that was returned to the shop (same yarn, different colorway). It's a super fast and easy knit. I'm going to ape Stacey and pick up stitches and knit the sleeves down, instead of knitting them loose, then grafting them on. Who likes finishing?

Today, I'm at Colorful Yarns all day, then a knitting group in the evening. Tomorrow, I've got an estonian lace class with Nancy Bush (Wanda, Michelle, and Joanne are all taking it too! and none of us knows exactly what Estonian lace is... but it sure sounds purty!), then hopefully we can meet up with some others to Knit In Public!!

Oh! I wanted to do the Not Meme I saw on Jon's blog.

Estonian Lace w/Nancy Bush sounds like an awesome start to the KIP day.

I hate the heat. Hope it stays cool for you! No a/c?

Oh, I can hardly wait to hear how the class was - sounds very educational!

Wow, you have been all over the place...

I did the same thing with the baby bolero re: the sleeves. And I'll be interested to see how many stitches you pick up on the front - I didn't need anywhere near as many as the pattern said.
