Plugging Along

My weekend's forecast is for clouds and rain. I think it's a good opportunity to get some housework and knitting accomplished. I am still working on my "modified" Multonomah Shawl to wear at MDS&W. I am also working a pair of plain stockinette stitch sock w/an after thought heal. What to cast on next? I think, either the "Pasticcio Circular Vest" or the "Traveling Woman's Shawl". I'll keep you posted on which one I choose. I am trying to stay away from purchasing new yarn and fiber! In my future, MDS&W, it is a week from today and I will be there for the "fibery fun"!!!! I am soooo looking forward to meeting my super star podcasters. I will definitely be stalking them, but in a good way.

My agenda for today. My 4 legged child (dog) has a pampering appointment this morning. Maybe I can get some vacuuming done without the vacuum cleaner being attacked. LOL. That's his favorite thing to do. Also, I hope to get a lot of knittin' done. I have a Multonomah Shawl, Mondo Cable Pulli, and a Lace tank to block.

Gotta get busy!!! A lot on my plate for today.

Good Knittins 2u

Phat Fiber Box

Ok, so I didn't blog last Saturday as planned. Today, is a very good day!!! I purchased my very first "Phat Fiber Box" and it was great. The boxes sold out in less than 2 min.
I am lucky!!! Going to try again this evening to get another.

What else? MDS&W is closely approaching and the excitement is growing. I am sooo looking forward to the weekend trip. I hope to have my Modified Multnomah completed by then.

Not much going on. Just enjoying life, knitting and family.

I have to decided to post on Saturdays now that my life is getting back to normal. I was deployed the latter part of 2009, returning in 2010. I will be writing about what's going on with my knitting, as well as, other thoughts I may have.

What's on my Plate:
Currently, I am in the She Knits#3 Mystery KAL. Got the yarn, pattern and beads but have not casted on yet. That could be because it was suggest that this was not "TV" knitting and needed my undivided attention. At this point in my life, I need more relaxation than focused knitting!

Online class, "Fitted Raglan Shawl" with Stefanie Japel...that's not going well either. I know I have started and frogged this pattern at least 10 times. I can't seem to get off of Chart 1. BTW, I have done simple lace before. Maybe I am reading too much into the pattern. Anyway, I decided to put it away for now.

What's on the circs?
I am working on a modified "Multnomah" shawl.

Exciting events!!!
MDS&W..can't wait for the first weekend in May!! This will be my second time. Not only my BD weekend, but lots of fibery fun. I am looking forward to meeting some of my podcasts stars!! The Knitmore Girls, Meghan of Stitch It, Jackie with Kipin It Real, and Nat with BarkinKnit..

That's enough for now. Back to my shawl.
