Well, thank you all for your well-wishes regarding my cold. I have a little of it left, but am considerably much better. This one didn't seem to be as bad a cold as usual - which is good! I still have a little of it left, and should be over it completely in a few days.
In knitting news, I've been working away on my ISE4 pal's scarf, and it's coming along nicely. When I work on it, I have to make sure I have the time to do a full repeat (24 rows) otherwise I'll forget where I am and get lost. It goes quickly though, and often I will do two repeats in a sitting. I am enjoying this scarf and the pattern.
It was a beautiful day out today, around +7 celcius (sorry to those using the non-metric temps, but I'm not sure how to convert it over for you), so I thought I'd take out my current knitting project out on the back patio and take a pic of them...you know for accurate colours and such.
Ok, for the first item, above, I have the scarf folded up...I'm still paranoid that my pal will discover it and my cover will be blown. So, if you are reading this and you are my pal (I know who you are), don't let on that you've discovered me or the scarf...otherwise I'll be sorely disappointed in myself at blowing my cover!
The scarf looked much brighter outside in the sun than in the house - naturally, and I found I liked the colours a lot more when they were out in the sun (not that I didn't like them before, just that I was worried that the scarf was going to be too dark).
The other picture I took is of the current sock project I started over the weekend. Another child's pair that will go for the mitten tree at the church at Christmas (and count for 25 Things For Charity). I am using the Butterfly Ribbed pattern, one that I printed off the net some time back. I'll post the link for it when I get the pair done.
I'm using the leftover Opal yarn (that I made the Lacy Trellis socks with), and am worried I won't have enough for it. So, I made the leg an inch shorter than normal so that it would just be a short sock. Also, they aren't going to match because the area that I began with for the first sock doesn't appear until the middle or so and if I were to cut the yarn, I would definately not have enough. So, hopefully the little girl that gets these won't mind. I also wound the yarn in a ball and the colour pattern will be working backwards...it's starting with pink (like at the heel of the first one), then purple, etc...I hope it won't look too freakish, lol. I'll also get a close up of the pattern when they're finished.
Well, must go do some homework now. Not much left to do in the school year. Exams start next week (the 19th) and I'm so not looking forward to that. I've also got to finish my observation and teaching practicum for TESL, but that probably won't be until the first week of May at the earliest. I want to get it done before I start work for the summer...which reminds me, I need to call and see if I can come in for the summer again. I don't think they'd like if I were to take off 2 mornings and 2 afternoons to do my practicum teaching, so if I can do that the first week of May, then I can start work the week after. Anyway, I'm it will all fall into place, I'm sure.
