11: Knitting!

This morning was less pleasant than the last few because I woke up with allergies...allergies! In the middle of winter! I thought to myself, what's going on? Then I realized the comforter that was just changed to on my bed was the on that one of my friends who has cats slept in when she slept over a while ago. Granted it was a long time ago but we never thought to wash it after just one or two uses. So I woke up this morning with allergies (thanks, Miriam =P). After changing all the sheets and comforter and taking a shower I crawled back in bed and slept for another two hours.

Yesterday I said that I didn't think I would do much knitting but as I posted that blog I started knitting. I finished Miriam's neckwarmer (ravelry link).

I actually ran out of the main color yarn (the rusty orange) so I had to use the leftover yarn from the wrist/armwarmers. But I think it will look okay. Now I just need to add the buttons.

I also finished my first real lace project, a scarf for my mom (ravelry link).

Yay for lace. And it's definitely not in lace-weight yarn, it's in nice, thick, plushy yarn ^.^ It's so soft! I just need to somehow hide it from my mom while I'm blocking it in my room...

Today I plan on doing some more knitting (or crocheting), reading and listening to podcasts. See you tomorrow =)
