Summer is coming up, so does that mean less knitting? Of course not. I have instead decided to see how far I can push as I work to wrap up a few things in the end of May. As the weather finally starts to warm up, all my public transport tries for most likely to turn my fingers blue. The bus is already winning.
So what have I joined? Well Nerd Wars T5 starts up in June and I have joined again. I enjoyed it even if I fell off a bit near the end I got the dissertation done in that last month so yay.
I have also joined the Nerd Wars group of the Ravelympics. I don’t remember being on a team the last Ravelympics but it did get me to finish the Dalek I knit on 000 DPNs out of light fingering yarn.
And of course I did not stop there. Why would I do a sensible thing like that? Not when there is the Tour de Fleece to join as well, also on the Nerd Wars team. I may have had a theme. Part of it is always having been interested in the Tour but only having learned to spin this year. Also I haven’t been spinning as much as I feel I should so this seems like good motivation.
But that’s not all folks! Through the Loops is having a shawl mystery KAL across the month of June and I thought why not? Sounds like fun. I like her designs and haven’t gotten around to making anything yet so no time like the present. And it may fit a challenge. There is the fun fact that the last clue comes out right at the end of the month so it will be a squeeze if I try to make it for Nerd Wars. But who doesn’t like a challenge right?
In all of this my office is moving, and we have picked up an insanely huge project, on top of the regularly scheduled insanely huge project so it will be an interesting time. There is a good chance there will be a period of working from home as one office gets torn down and another gets built up. I live in hope. So anyone going to join me in my excess insanity?
