It’s that time again and really, all I can say this time is THANK GOD! I know, it’s way overused and all, but some Fridays just seem like the most welcome thing since air conditioning (it’s been “stupid hot” here lately. Officially declared so by Mr.Me. And I can’t argue with him. Stupid Hot. Definitely). The reenacting schedule this summer has been relatively light, for which I’m quite grateful, especially with the heat. 98 in the shade while wearing a lot of clothes takes a lot out of a girl and I’m finding it much harder to recover than usual. Plus it seems I’m brewing up a summer cold so I am feeling far less than 100% these days. Friday is a welcome sight! Doesn’t hurt that tonight kicks off the Summer Olympics and a whole lot of knitting brought to you by the Ravellenic Games, either! So, before I abandon all projects currently on the needles in order to tackle my 5 “Event” projects for the games, a quick post on the one thing that got finished this week seems in order, don’t you think?
I really can’t hype the week as a great bit of productivity, especially in terms of actual finishing, but I did get Clapotis the Sequel off my needles. Technically, it’s not quite done, there is still the blocking, but since the Season of Doom is still a good way off, I’m in no rush. The ends are woven in, the dropped stitches are all dropped and this delicious bit of soft, squooshy loveliness is ready for cozying into when the time comes.
And the best part- it freed up my Size 7 Sharps tips for Ravellenic’s knitting. This is a very important thing. Having transferred my Boneyard from the wooden straights I started it on to my size 7Hiya Hiya blunties I was reminded of just how much I prefer the sharps. I would be miserable working up my scarf & hat projects on the blunts. REALLY miserable.
