I'm allowing myself to blog because I have pretty much done all my sub plans! I just have to start filling out my hand-off forms and I have to email my sub about her students and I should be all set. It's weird thinking that this is my last week at the Kelter Center. I don't know if it's going to be my last week forever or just for now.
Here I am modeling my lace shrug and my thermal tank. lol. I wanted to see what the shrug looked like with something solid because it can't be worn with something striped or patterned (@ least I don't think!). And since no one has seen my thermal since I finished the body, I thought why not. Please forgive the fact that I haven't sewn in any buttons hence all that yarn bunched up above my chest. It actually looks pretty good. I'm too lazy to work on the sleeves though I know I'll be able to wear it soon should I finish it!
I experimented with steam blocking Saturday night. I steam blocked my shrug, my thermal, and my chevron (what I've knitted so far). I had never steam blocked before so I thought I'd try it out. I kinda like it.
And now, here's my first finished hedera. I'm nearly to the gusset with the second sock so I should have a finished pair soon enough. Now, is it me or is the second sock normally knitted tighter and the first sock knitted looser? That's what I've noticed I've been doing. :P My first sock is a bit loose on me (I think I might've done one round too many for the gusset). Oh well, good thing socks come in pairs. lol. I started looking through my stash a bit this morning to figure out what I'm going to use for a pair of thujas. :) I also started wondering what pattern to use for the skein of tofutsies I've got..
