On a limb

I thought that once March wrapped up, we might be able to start April off on the right foot. Well, I may as well have started April off with a visit to the Ministry of Silly Walks because holy chickens, it has been a whirlwind of activity and not all of it is great. You’re here for the fiber projects, and what I have to share today is part of a new HeartCat. This one is a birthday present that I think might be a belated gift by the time it is done, but I will pres on. In the photo you can see one arm of the HeartCat, my painted fingernails (such a rarity, but a fun distraction), and my new specially commissioned project bag! Amanda, of SewKnitPicky and Knot a Podcast was so great to work with me for this bag. I love it! Little kitties and a heart zipper pull – perfect, as this bag is intended for HeartCat projects.

New Project, New Book

L socks WIPIt’s Wednesday again, time for WIP Wednesday & Yarn Along! I finished up my Stripe Study (yay!) so you’ll have to wait until Friday for that report. I have other secret projects I’m working on and in the “downtime” until the next Camp Loopy project starts (tomorrow! I have to get my yarn wound!) I decided to start a new project: socks for Lorelai. She has been showing a greater interest in the things I have knit and has asked for a few amigurumi things here and there. I uncovered a lone skein of Knit Picks Stroll in the stash the other day while looking for something else. She seemed interested in the socks at first, but when I put the WIP on her to see how tall she wanted the socks she told me she wanted knee socks (I don’t have enough of this yarn!) and then that she didn’t want socks. Sigh. I’m deciding to keep on and knit these up for her anyway, and I have been looking for ideas for knee-high socks. Isn’t the project bag great? It’s my new Piddleloop bag, it’s so cute and roomy! I love how the triangle shape sits too, and even DH noticed it yesterday.

Reading wise, I’ve been a bit disappointed with the e-book selection via my library – there are a lot of classics (which I should read, but I’m just not feeling), a lot of trashy romance novels (meh), a lot of chick-lit (not interested). I have holds on several items, but it’s probably going to be a while. I took a gamble and found The Anatomist’s Apprentice while I was randomly browsing.  We’ll see how it goes.
