Ya, I'm still here. Seems that I miss a couple of days and people begin to worry. I just haven't had that much to update and haven't been online that much last week.
So let's do a quick catch up.
The Minty Fresh Cardigan is a bust. The yarn is too soft and the collar is too drapey. It's a wee bit small (I have upper arm issues) so I'm ignoring it for now. I'll decide if I just want to take the collar off of it and use it as a V neck cardigan... but weight loss will also have to be involved.
However, I sure do love my green cardigans.
The Jean Frost Cardigan from the XRX Jackets book is moving along. So the
A detail of the lovely pattern:
I've also been moving along on the Brooks Fiber scarf. I'm trying to get one repeat done a day (breakfast knitting!) so I'm up to 6 repeats done (no picture).
I'm still working on the self designed crochet cardigan, but struggling a bit with the sleeves and how much yarn I have. I might end up with short sleeves... or I could order more yarn (heehee).
I've also been playing a lot of video games. I'm replaying one of the Ratchet and Clank games... and waiting for the PSP game to be released. Oh, and waiting to actually get a PSP...
However, it's getting close to the start of the race season. It's been a busy time here getting the kits designed and ordered. The team's race bikes came in:
There's been a lot of discussion on wheels (seems the stock wheels are way too heavy for racing...).
Meanwhile, my job has been trying to clean up the team's logo so they can get some merchandise made up (to make some money). Matt's setting up a CafePress store, but I'm afraid my artwork isn't clean enough to print well... so I've been playing around with it:
So we're just trying to stay warm (tho Matt did get a ride in yesterday and hopes to get out today too). Searching for a good price on American Classic Magnum 300's. Playing video games and working on some knitting.
So I'll snuggle in today (no, I won't be riding outside today... or anything outside today) and get some laundry done!
Keep on Knittin'!
