This week on the needles & in the ears, August 29th

Another combo post, as I'm a little short on time.  The post for "This week on the needles/ears" that would come next Sunday, September 5th, will be delayed by a few days, as I'm off to Alberta and Montana for a wedding (my baby sister!) and won't be back on time.

It's a bit quiet on the knitting front this week.  I didn't get as far in my sock as I thought, and won't likely finish it before September 1st, but that's okay.  I have another six diamonds and the 2 inch cuff left.  I didn't knit much in the past week, as we had a friend "move in" to stay for a month, and it was settling-in time, catching-up time, etc.

The lace scarf is getting some work done, but quite honestly, this feels like the scarf that will never end.  I weighed the remaining ball last week, and I had exactly 2oz of the formerly 4oz of the skein.  What?  So even though I have completed about 36 or 37 of the 49 repeats, I still have lots of yarn left.  And I don't want any yarn left.  I want to use the whole skein.  Hence the never-ending scarf.  It looks fabulous, and I will likely love wearing once done, but really, I am bored with it currently.

Oh, and the blue sweater hasn't had any action.  No time, no time.

As for listening, I am working through some of the CogKnitive podcast (very cool!), and am coming back into the fold of the Dragonfly in Amber.  I also listened to the first two episodes of the Caithness Craft Collective.

Right, off to pack!  I'll try to take some pictures while I'm away, to post upon my return.  Lakeside Montana...mmmm....
