It is such a production to get photos onto my computer these days that I have waited forever to post just in case I had time to pull my laptop out of its hiding place (the kids love to play with it if it’s out), take a photo or two of my WIPs, download them, email them to my other computer, change their size, upload them to Photobucket and finally post them here. In the absence of such time, I’m posting pictureless again.
Thank you so much for your well wishing on my hand injury last week. I had to work through the pain, but it got better about 3 days later, I’m happy to say. A couple of days ago I finished my 2nd scarf and cast on for a third. I can’t believe I wasn’t sure I would have enough Classic Elite yarn to make Ella, since I have made a smaller version, a 2nd scarf and am on the 3rd, with one ball still untouched. It is definitely going a long way but I’m a bit tired of the mauve color. School ends next Friday, so I’ve got a bit over a week to get what I can done.
Since I haven’t been knitting as much, I have gotten some beading done. I made two necklaces recently that are made of up of three strands of seed beads each, which technically means I’ve made six necklaces this week. They’re definitely fun to do. I’ve got more beading to do because even though I thought I was done with swaps after SP10 wraps up (I’ve recieved all of the swap packages I’m expecting, but I have one more to send), I just recieved my partners for the most recent Stitch Marker Swap. Oops! I guess my swapping days will go on.
I would be lying to say I wasn’t doing any swaps at all, since I am currently addicted to the CD swaps on Swap-bot, since I have just figured out how to record a CD easily, and am really enjoying making mixes with the thousands of CDs on our computer. I’m frightened to think how much money we spend on CDs and LPs over the years (not counting the duplicates when I lived in MD and BR lived in CA), and many of them are available now on eMusic.com for a 9.99 subscription fee!
With Chris’ inspiration, I also created a mix for the most recent Project Spectrum. I’m not in Project Spectrum, but how can I not be involved in something including my favorite colors: red, black and metallics?! If anyone would like a copy of my Project Spectrum mix, I’d be happy to send you one.
I promise there are pictures to come this weekend!
