another project finished! i sewed in the ends of Leslee's scarf this evening, and started on the first scarf of TLS' order. this weekend will be busy, but with being sick, i can tell that i will be spending some time on the couch getting some knitting done. that's also the plan for xmas day, i think - shall have to tell Kelly to bring over whatever project she's working on.

So, boredom knitting tonight, garter stitch, blahblahblah. And FunFur means I have to sort of pay attention to what I'm doing. After going to bed ridiculously late and being up way too early today, I slept for about 4 hours this afternoon - which means I'll be up ridiculously late again tonight. Meh. So, I have MASH out from Netflix and some Sex and the City, so yay! knitting. :P I just don't want to go down to the car to grab the bag of yarn for the next three scarves.

At least with FunFur, I don't have to worry about tweezing the cat hair out unless the buyer/recipient is allergic!

FunFur, bane of my existence

Why on EARTH did I ever make a scarf out of FunFur?? Now everyone who has seen the first one that I made is ordering them. I made one for LisaLou, and GC at work saw it and ordered one, and Mari saw GC's and wanted one, and Leslee saw Mari's and ordered one, and TLS (a partner! in the firm!) saw GC's and ordered THREE!

So, I have to be a little knitting monster this weekend. I don't feel right about starting on TLS' before I finish Leslee's, even if she doesn't actually buy it right away. I spent the evening with some of my knitting girls, and got a lot done on Leslee's. Thank god the yarn is so bulky that I can just use garter or stockinette stitch the whole way; no ribbing or other real pattern to follow. I'm just a little concerned because I don't think that Leslee realized the colorway she liked so much stripes the way that it does. It won't be a big deal if she doesn't like it; I'm sure someone else will buy it... I just don't want to disappoint my friend.

I'm just a little frustrated because I have a lot of other delicious yarns in my stash. I know Leslee isn't in a super-rush to have hers, so I cast on a My So-Called Scarf in the Rosewood colorway last night and was really looking forward to working on that. That scarf is going to be gorgeous; if we go to NYC for NYE, I am definitely keeping that scarf for myself. I can't wait to work with Homespun - I will have to swatch MSCS and see how that yarn turns out in it.

Well, I might be heading out to have a beer with my honey and a friend, so more to come later!
